Owner description: When In Rome Tours is a collective of like-minded tourism industry professionals, comprising company directors, two business managers, several admins, and dedicated support staff. 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.

I SPEND 2 HOURS WITH THE bureaucracy of the company, the tour is completely average, it's very expensive for what it offers, it's better if you reserve and do it by your self. DON'T WAIST MONEY IN THIS!

We bought a food walk in Rome but got 4 hours with an incredibly nice , well-educated and skilled Italian man . So in addition to good food and great food ( too much ), so we learned the history, politics, Italy's various police forces , etc. etc. Giuliano's tours are recommended. Best regards Lena and Asa

Yesterday we had a tour with Luigi of the vatican. His knowledge and passion was excellent, he had a tour of 22 people of varying nationalities and kept us all together, and with a great sense of humour. I must say i was skeptical of the tour but thought afterwards that it really is the only way to see the... More

We enjoyed a private two day tour of Rome with Chiara as our guide. I would strongly recommend you request her services for any future tour. She was so knowledgeable about the subject matter while presenting the information in an understandable and interesting manner. Extremely energetic which made the tour lots of fun. Chiara truly seemed to be passionate about... More

Vatican City is mega-crowded (think sardines) , so unless you have prior knowledge of what to look at as you tour the museum , Sistine Chapel and San Pietro , then pay these guys 25 euros each and have a great , informative , entertaining , and slightly quashed couple of hours. Our tour guide was Christina , originally from... More

We had a great tour of the Vatican. Daniella is one of the best guides we have ever come across and with lots of knowledge and humor she made the tour interesting all the way. We can highly recommend her for future tours and we hope to see her again next time. Kristian & Angeliqa from Stockholm, Sweden

We've traveled a bit and have had many tours, this one by far exceeded all expectation in terms of content. Our guide was Chiarra, and had Roman history knowledge like an encyclopedia. We were exhausted from the walking, but had a fantastic time.

Christina was our guide around the Vatican. She was very knowledgeable and made for a very interesting tour of the Vatican museum and in particular of the Sistene chapel. Would highly recommend.

My friend and I were unsure as to whether or not we wanted to do the tour. It is well worth the $40 euro. It saves you waiting in an hour line just to enter the church and covers the Sistine Chapel and parts of the museum. Our guide was Giuliano. He was excellent! He was so friendly and knew... More
