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.

Dimo was fantastic, great teacher/storyteller, structured tour perfectly to tie the past to the present. We are happy to strongly recommend him.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Dimo was an excellent guide -- he was charming and funny and gave us a just the right amount of info without overwhelming us. He really made the history come alive. He also did a lovely job of working with our group (which included older folks who didn't walk as well) and giving us little breaks to rest. We thought he was great.
It was a delight to spend the time with Liz. She was extremely informative and made sure all of our questions and interests were addressed. She moved out of pace that was perfect for our ability. It was our first tour in Rome as it was our first visit to Rome. She found a restaurant for us to have lunch after our tour. And gave us great directions and suggestions it was a wonderful experience
