Rome 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 capital of a reunited Italy in the 19th century through present day. Evidence of its multiple eras and hidden histories are layered beneath its circuitous, scenic streets. Experience everything from the rise of the Roman empire to the crypts of the medieval churches to the artistic techniques of the Renaissance on our Rome guided tours, in the company of archaeologists, historians, artists, and other specialists. La Città Eterna is constantly changing—unearth all of its layers with Context's Rome private tours and small group tours.

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.

Loved our tour guide Jose! He was extremely accommodating to our level of knowledge and got us to everywhere we wanted and more. We loved all of his facts and tidbits and the extremely helpful timeline he drew for us that put together so many different historical elements, religions, and events. Can’t recommend it more!
We booked a wine tasting session with Chiara and it was amazing!! This was our first trip to Italy and this was worth every penny. Chiara was very knowledgeable and took the time to educate us on different Italian wines (she even had a packet of information she printed us before hand so we could bring it home with us). We would absolutely recommend everyone we know book a tasting with Chiara. This experience elevated our entire trip to Rome.
Sara was welcoming and informative! It was a pleasure to listen to her talk about a subject she clearly is passionate about!
