Rome Private Tours and Experiences Hosted by Local Experts

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.

Simonetta was a fantastic guide! Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and expertly guided as (also known personally to many of the people working inside the Vatican).
Giulia is the ultimate guide to see the Colosseum and Palatine Hill… the fact that she has her Master’s Degree in Archaeology amplifies her passion and knowledge. It was the best way to experience the Colosseum and surrounding area. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
The night tour with Jeanette was incredible! It was our first night in Rome and the perfect introduction. So informative and fascinating.
