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 its role as capital of a reunited Italy in the 19th century and through to the present day. Its circuitous, scenic streets are layered with these multiple eras and hidden histories. In a single mile, you can experience everything from the rise of the Roman empire to the crypts of the medieval churches to the artistic techniques of the Renaissance. Yet Rome is constantly changing, with an exciting influx of contemporary art, design, food, and fashion adding a modern vibe to this ancient city. Unearth Rome's layers with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Rome Private and Guided Tours

We offer a wide range of private and small group guided tours in Rome, including visits to museums, archaeological sites, and food tours—all led by local experts. One of our most popular private tours is our Ostia Antica tour, during which we trek out to Ostia, 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 tours for kids in Rome, including our Ancient Rome for Kids Tour and our Vatican for Kids Tour, both of which use interactive activities, scavenger hunts, and games and feature 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.

Our family (kids 12, 9 and 6) had a wonderful experience touring the Colosseum with Dony. He engaged the kids beautifully despite a pretty wide age spread, led us quickly through all the crowds so we were always moving, took great family photos without our asking, and impressed upon my bigger boys the importance of constant vigilance as a pedestrian in Rome. It was our first full day in Rome, and we had a wonderful time. This was definitely the best tour we had in Rome.
It is a VERY long walk from the Piazza del Popolo to the second of the three churches on the tour and I think guests should so be advised and have the option to take a taxi at their own expense.
Cecilia was amazing. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we already knew, what other tours we have seen, our specific interests and tailored our tour experience accordingly. She was amazing! We can’t wait to come back with family and book another tour.
