Rather than work for tour operators, we formed this company in order to cut out the middleman and work directly with our customers, thereby avoiding the commissions that tour operators add to our tour fees.Although we are all licensed guides in Rome and the Vatican, we all have our own areas of expertise. We have archaeologists, art historians, and university lecturers among our ranks, and as our reputation has grown we continue to invite similarly-qualified guides to join us. Our philosophy is simple: We believe that tours should be fun as well as informative, so any guides seeking to join us must have an open and friendly disposition on tours, and be willing to assist our customers with any situation. A passion for Rome is mandatory. We also believe that our customers are best served in small groups. For this purpose, we strictly limit all of our group tours to only 12 people. This does not mean that we cannot cater for more than 12 people - if you have a private party and wish to stay together for an entire tour we can arrange for this - but for group tours we like to keep the groups small and intimate, so that you can engage with your guide and ask questions.Our fees are honest and reflect the small sizes of our groups. These are the fees that we would be paid from tour operators, but they add their own commissions on top so you will pay higher rates for the same service if booked through a tour operator. We include ticket prices in our tour fees where tickets are applicable, and we always skip the lines. Headsets are provided for groups of more than 5 people - if you are lucky enough to be in a group of 5 or less you will see that headsets are not required! Since our inception in 2008, we have received some great reviews on Tripadvisor, and we thank all of our previous customers, both for their repeat business and for recommending us to their family and friends. Our customer base and reputation have been growing steadily over the past few years, and we promise to continue to strive to deliver the perfect Rome experience for all our future guests.We hope to see you on one of our tours in 2014! « less

We booked the Vatican Half-Day Tour which lasted about 3 1/2 hours. Our guide Michela was very pleasant, spoke good English and had exceptional knowledge of the history surrounding the Vatican, Popes and general Roman history. The tour met in front of an easy to find restaurant near the entrance to the Vatican Museum. We scheduled the tour on a... More

Our tour with Real Rome Tour was all it was advertised to be, and more. We skipped all the long lines at the ticket booths and therefore covered much more ground in one day than we could have done on our own. Our guide Sal was the main reason we gave this tour a five star rating. He was very... More

It was a small group of 13 people, we were given excellent quality earphones for voice amplification from Ferdinando, and we were off. Our guide was... More

We had Andrea Domini as our guide and he was great. When you add in the skip the line tours of the Colosseum and the Vatican plus all the other great sights, you get a fantastic tour of most of Rome all in one day!

We did the Colosseum and Vatican tours with Real Rome Tours. Both guides were very knowledgeable. Really appreciated Dario's restaurant tips and even walking us to a great place for lunch after our tour.

This trip lived up up to our expectations in every way. This ended up being one of the most memorable of a long trip with many tours. Andrea was great.
