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.

Excellent tour guide. Well done
Dimo was sensational! He answered all my questions and we discussed deeper details on the sites and the actual daily activities (as best we know)- this made it come alive for me. I’ve been to these sites before and learned much more about them this time. He was easy to talk with and attentive to the need for rests and water. ..just a great day all around!!!
Truly amazing experience. This was the best way to start our vacation in Rome! Massimo was great with our kids, an expert of the area and gave us wonderful recommendations on what to do with the rest of our days. I cannot say enough good things about booking a tour like this, you won’t regret it!
