Our Rome tour guides are fully licensed and have been leading Rome walks for many years in both English and native Spanish. Instead of working for a corporate tours provider on a commission basis, we have worked our way up over the years to become Rome's leading independently established tour operator. There are no middlemen, book a Rome or Vatican walking tour with us and you will tour WITH US. In this way, you get value for money with no extra costs at any stage. Our guides are experts in their chosen field, be they art historians or archaeologists. Our primary aim is to deliver education about Rome and the Vatican in an enjoyable way, so we take great care to ensure that our guides are as personable as they are professional. Small group tours of Rome work well for everyone and they are our focus. If, however, you wish to book a fully private and exclusive tour, we have many private Rome tour options for you to consider. As a fully licensed tour agency in Rome, we have to bear considerable operating costs as anyone working in Italy will tell you, so we are very proud to announce that our prices continue to be as competitive today as they always have been. In order to be fully transparent, tour costs on our website include all tickets and all local taxes - there is never anything else to pay over and above the prices we publish online. One of our many guarantees is "skip the Vatican line". The same also applies to our ancient Rome tours - "skip the Coliseum line". You will always enter venues in Rome before everyone else on a Rome or Vatican tour with When In Rome Tours. Our reputation in Rome is second to none, and we are sent recommendations every day. When In Rome Tours strives to offer the best possible tours of Rome and the Vatican, and we will continue to pursue even higher service standards in future. « less

Sabrina was our tour guide for a walking tour of the Forum, Coliseum, Pantheon. She was so knowledgeable and fun to talk with during the tour. You could tell she really loves her job.

We joined one of their Vatican tours. We skipped the line and our guide Guiliano was incredible. His knowledge of the political and historical background was fantastic. The tour was definitely worth the money. Our kids aged 10 and 16 loved it to. Added bonus was getting to dress up in gladiator armour at the office!

While in Rome for just a few days, we were able to see so much by booking two different tours with When In Rome Tours. Our first tour was the Rome By Night Tour, which was a wonderful way to see the city without all the daytime crowds. Our driver was wonderful, but our guide, Giuliano, really made the experience...

Highly recommend this tour and especially the professional tour guide Luigi Senise. He is incredibly knowledgeable. It is clear, after spending a short time with Luigi that he loves his job. The information that Luigi will share with you will bring the history of the Vatican to life. This tour is well worth the cost. Highly recommend Luigi Senise!

On Oct 7, 2014 we did a tour of the Vatican with Luigi as our guide. Right from the start, we noted that Luigi got to know personally each and every member of the group, which made sense as the tour went on. The musuem, Sistene chapel and St. Peter's cathedral was simply packed and the way Luigi kept us... More

My wife and I were visiting Rome with another couple and wanted to tour the Vatican, Museum and Sistine Chapel as easily as possible. We were recommended to use Cristina Sofia Zadro as our professional guide by a friend who had done the same tour with her, earlier in the year. Cristina is a journalist, art historian and art critic... More
