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

We visited Vatican City on Easter Saturday! This would have been the worst decision we ever made but fortunately we decided to use When in Rome Tours and skip the queues. Our guide was Daniela and she was very informative and made sure we could all hear her. Obviously the place was heaving but we managed to skip queues and... More

My wife and two kids (ages 14 and 11) went on two separate tours with When In Rome Tours during the week of April 15-19, 2014. These tours were the highlights of our trip to Rome and I give these folks my highest recommendation. Our first experience was a 5 hour "private" tour of the Vatican museums, Sistine Chapel and...

We arrived to the office early and the kind Opertions Manager Robert Coughlin let us come in out of the rain and was very gracious and accommodating. We were very fortunate to be assigned to Daniella for our tour guide. Out of every tour we have ever taken, she was hands down the most knowledgeable and engaging. She knew her... More

We took the tour of the Vatican Museum with this company. Our tour guide, Christina, was knowledgeable and very efficient. By using the tour guide we bypassed the 2 hour queue and spent 2 hours seeing the finest Roman antiquities and the Sistine Chapel. Without the guide you'd get lost in the museum. Clean offices just round the corner from... More

I had no idea that 'When In Rome Tours' existed until I got to the Vatican City. There were queues three hours long to get into the museums and it was a rather warm day. There were many 'companies' approaching us with their 'skip the queue tickets' but it was a case of 'head down, run faster'. We were drawn... More

We werent originally going to do a tour around the Vatican and the museums however after talking about it with a friendly employee, we decided to go for it. Our tourguide Christina was animated and friendly and obviously interested in what she was talking about. The tour of the museums and the sistine chaple was well worth it as we... More

The Vatican was crowded but she made every effort to keep the group of 20 together and allow enough time for photos, she was also very good with... More

Did a small tour group Vatican/S. Peter's/Vatacombs. Everything met or exceeded our expectations, from online ticketing, reception at the office in Rome to the actual tour itself. We had Sabrina as our guide, which certainly made it an outstanding experience. On the practical side, Sabrina was very informative, explaining everything we went through including red tape, security check and queue... More

It was a great tour, did the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel, but had to pay extra to go to the dome. Good experience, well looked after but maybe led to believe everything was included. Definately beat the queues as promised though.
