Another great experience with Matt and the Roman Candle Tours team!! I used their transport services twice on this trip including for airport pick-up as well as transport from Rome to Tuscany. Both of the drivers (Roberto and Beatrice) were very professional, on time and friendly with great vehicles too. For those wondering, safety was also paramount with euro green pass vaccination proof and masks worn at all times. I was also very impressed that I was assigned a female driver for my trip from Rome to Tuscany. I was travelling solo this particular trip, so this was a nice surprise to have this option of a female driver for the longer commute from Rome into Tuscany -- a nice touch for added comfort. I highly recommend Roman Candle Tours. They were excellent for this solo trip and transport services. On a previous trip, my family and I also had used them to book private tours (Vactican, Colliseum etc...) as well as for various transport services. Happy Repeat Customer!!

Our guide, Kristiana, was excellent. My family and I easily found her at the meeting point and she led us on wonderful tour of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. Kristiana's knowledge of the history of Rome is amazing. We learned so much more seeing the Forum and Colosseum with her than we ever could have without a guide.

After a recommendation from a friend i got in touch with this company to see if they could help out with a tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. From start to finish Matt in the office was professional, prompt and informative with every reply i received by email. On arriving we were promptly met by Lucia who instructed us on what our itinerary would be and how we should socially distance so we felt very safe. Having visited these locations previously without a tour guide i wasn't expecting it to be anything special but our host Lucia knew everything and i mean everything you need to know about these historic locations and the buildings that run alongside them. Not only was her knowledge second to none she had a great sense of humour and made us feel very much at ease (Also knowing the water stops in 35 degree heat was helpful it must be said). To sum up if you ever want to take a tour (and i would recommend doing this rather than ticket only) look no further than Roman Candle Tours! Thanks again Matt and Lucia for making our trip very memorable and we shall see you next time we are in town!

We were a family group of ten people visiting Italy. In Rome, we took a private tour of Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel,St Peter’s Basilica and the Colosseo, our guide was the best, very knowledgeable, she answered our questions, she was very polite, guided us very well, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The drivers, were very nice, both of them, and we fitted quite nicely on the vans. Matt arranged it all, he also arranged our pick-up from Venice, Marco Polo Airport to St. Marks Square in a private taxi. Everything went very well, he is a Pro!

Travel support from Matt of Roman Candle Tours was nothing short of outstanding for our second tour of Italy. From previous experience, we decided to rely on Romand Candle Tours again to assist with the planning and execution of our large group's itinerary. We traveled with 33 family and friends to attend our son's ordination in St. Peter's Basilica and everyone enjoyed it very much. Matt was always cordial and quick to respond to all of our questions and needs. He helped book transportation from Rome to Assisi and was kind enough to recommend and book a restaurant for lunch in Assisi. His restaurant recommendation was spot-on with a delicious fare while keeping the group within budget. He booked us a bus that was spacious, comfortable, with a friendly bus driver who was very accommodating making three different stops to pick-up travelers from different hotels. Matt's knowledge and expertise in Italy became most evident when he helped us research accommodations and tours of the Amalfi Coast. He was very thorough and patient and took the time to help us explore various options for our visit to Amalfi. Ultimately, he helped our group book an unforgettable private boat tour of the Amalfi Coast to/from Capri Island. Matt of Roman Candle Tours was always ready to lend a helping hand and I always felt that he truly had our best interest in mind with his advice and support. I relied on him constantly with last-minute itinerary changes, he helped us book van transfers and transportation throughout Rome when needed. I easily communicated with Matt using WhatsApp and his support was essential to our most enjoyable time in Italy. I would highly recommend using Roman Candle Tours for bookings and travel planning to Italy. Matt and his staff provided outstanding personalized travel support and advice. I am very grateful to Matt for helping our group navigate a wonderful Italy tour.

Thank you for your review and for relying again on us for this second family trip to Italy. I am pleased that you were able to explore more of Italy this time around, and that we could cater to your large family with busses, private vans and even a sail boat to take you around the Amalfi Coast and over to Capri. We look forward to your next trip to Italy!
