Guide and guests in Rome

Over twenty years of conversations

Conversations, not scripts

“Our morning with Rafael was the quintessential Context experience - and why we keep coming back. We saw a part of Tokyo we would never have experienced on our own, but more importantly we left with a deeper understanding of Tokyo, why it’s developed the way it has, and how its citizens actually live their lives. So much more valuable (and interesting) than simply “seeing the sights”

Experts, not guides

“William literally writes the book(s) on the D-Day memorials which led to an incredibly informative day tour. From age 77 to 11, we were all captivated by his knowledge and his ability to connect the dots.”

Tailored, not one-size fits all

“Fantastic way to learn or refresh your understanding of key aspects of the history of Britain... One of the great things about a Context private tour is your guide. You can tailor your experience to your group's individual interests. This was our third Context tour. We are 3 for 3 in terms of top shelf guides, each very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended!"

We had a fabulous day with Imogen! She was so knowledgeable, friendly and kind. She was organized and made the best of our time together. It was our first time in London, and the all day tour was the perfect way to get to know the history and sites of that beautiful city. We opted for the driver, and we lucked out as it was a Bank Holiday, and the traffic was minimal.
Alan was an outstanding guide. The British Museum would have been so overwhelming had he not been the to navigate the exhibits with his expertise. A most interesting and pleasurable day.
Caroline was amazing. We did three tours while in London. She was far and away our best experience.
