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.

Everything was excellent. We were met promptly by Cecilia and the day went by in an blink on an eye, as we enjoyed every minute and learned a lot. This experience left us richer and very fulfilled. Highly recommended. Thanks!
This tour was the best! A quick drive into another time, another world. Dimo was completely at ease with his expertise and kept our interest and attention with fascinating insights into ancient Roman life. We are so glad Context suggested this tour as part of our Rome experience, and so grateful for Dimo as our expert guide. Amazing!
Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable took us to places off the beaten track but important to the Life picture of Caravaggio.
