Rome Private Tours and Rome Small Group Tours

Context tours are for travelers who love to learn. Since 2003, we have offered 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 Museums, 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 Italy's most compelling archaeological sites. Also popular is our Underground Rome Tour, in which we dig under the surface (literally and figuratively) with a trained Archaeologist or Speleologist to explore sewers, crypts, and buried temples—featured in National Geographic and on the History Channel.

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.

Or are you more eager to take a day trip from Rome? Our team has taken care of planning all the logistics for a perfect Pompeii Full Day Tour from Rome.

Our tour with Dimo was perhaps one of the top 3 best day of my life. Dimo is very intelligent, highly educated & most importantly he's excited about the topic he's teaching. I'm a person deeply addicted to Roman history & he could not have been a more perfect fit for me.
Dimo was a terrific guide. We very much enjoyed the day with him.
So reassuring to have an expert take us in, bypassing the line of at least 1000 or more people, and knowing exactly where to go. Andy also knew the highlights and got us through steadily, but not rushed. He was so personable and made it such an enjoyable experience.
