Rome Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Rome is full of energy, history, and—of course—scooters.
Rome has had many incarnations, from Etruscan enclave, to hub of the ancient Roman Empire, to capital of a reunited Italy in the 19th century through present day. Evidence of its multiple eras and hidden histories are layered beneath its circuitous, scenic streets. Experience everything from the rise of the Roman empire to the crypts of the medieval churches to the artistic techniques of the Renaissance on our Rome guided tours, in the company of archaeologists, historians, artists, and other specialists. La Città Eterna is constantly changing—unearth all of its layers with Context's Rome private tours and small group tours.

Rome Private Tours and Rome Small Group Tours

We offer a wide range of Rome guided tours, including visits to museums, archaeological sites, and food tours—all led by local scholars and specialists. In addition to the main attractions like the Colosseum and the Vatican, our Rome private guides can also show you the sites less traveled. One of our most popular Rome private tours is our Ostia Antica tour, an excursion to the ancient port of Rome buried by centuries of mud, one of the nation's most compelling archaeological sites. Traveling to Rome with kids? Try our Ancient Rome for Kids Tour and our Vatican for Kids Tour, both of which use interactive activities, scavenger hunts, and games and feature private guides trained in inquiry-based learning to make Rome come alive. Also popular is our Underground Rome Tour, in which we dig under the surface (literally and figuratively) with an archaeologist or speleologist to explore sewers, crypts, and buried temples—featured in National Geographic and on the History Channel.

Covid threw us some curve balls and your back-office staff were fantastic to work with. We loved seeing Alessandra again (we had toured with her years back), and she was wonderful as always. The girls also loved the guide that they had for their vatican tour.
What a marvelous guide Livia was! Her knowledge, passion and professionalism were beyond our expectations. Thank you, Livia!!!
Priscilla was a wonderful guide, and gave us plenty of background, history and insight into the Museums and Chapel. She gave us time to view and was excellent in engaging our teenagers the entire tour. She asked questions and understood what each of use desired out of the tour. Her interpretation was excellent and I would highly suggest her as a guide to anyone asking about Vatican tours in the future. She was the best tour guide we've had with Context Tours! (We've done 4)
