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.

Liz was great! So knowledgeable and passionate about our tour. The whole process was easy and Liz was very accommodating. We loved it!
Overall, the tour was enjoyable and the sites were tremendous. Liz was very knowledgeable and great at answering questions. However, we were forced to ask many questions because Liz was somewhat disorganized and seemed to lack much of a plan for the tour. She seemed to simply bring us to a place, point to the sites and explain what they were. She didn't provide much context behind the history or the story behind the sites. We took a tour the next day with Roberta in Pompeii illustrated to us how mediocre Liz was.
Paolo was excellent! Impressive depth of knowledge and a passion for the subject matter that makes it an exciting experience.
