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 only had 3 days in Rome - and we spent 2 of them with Chiarra. We found When in Rome tours though TripAdvisor and Chiarra was our guide. We did a 2 day (4 hour each) private tour and it was the smartest thing we did. Not only was Chiarra unbelievably well versed in all subject matters - art,... More

Just visited Rome this week. We fortunately ended up booking a vatican tour with Daniela. She is so informative and knowledgeable about her work and even if you're not really into history, she makes you want to know more and more. Perfect guide! we enjoyed the whole tour. highly recommended. Thanks Daniela - pregnant girl from malta x

I just finished a Vatican tour with Giuliano. I have had the good fortune of travelling much of the world and many tours. BY FAR, no tour guide has ever been as passionate, articulate, interesting and knowledgeable as Giuliano. Thank you!!! I truly believe he should be doing these tours as a TV host on BBC so millions more could... More

We are very hesitant to take large tour groups of anything. However When In Rome Tours made it stress free. The group wasn't that big to tour the Vatican and our guide Daniela was most excellent! She was Informative, amusing and friendly. She made the experience engaging and interesting. You get what you pay for here.

My husband and I booked a private full day tour of Rome with Luigi (based on other reviews). We could not have had a more interesting, passionate and incredibly knowledgeable guide. We had such an amazing day that we are still talking about our day in Rome. This is definitely the way to do Rome and an absolute must with... More

This was my first visit to Rome, and I was traveling alone so I wanted to be sure that I saw as much of Rome as possible. I booked a private 3 day tour, and can not say enough wonderful things about the experience. I was very fortunate to have Luigi as my guide and was astounded by the amazing... More

Firstly, the website alludes to this tour being 'one' all day tour, but it's actually two separate half day tours with different guides and the end of the morning tour is a 20 min taxi ride to the start of the afternoon tour. I really think this needs to be made clear, as our morning guide didn't even know we... More

Four of us booked a tour of the Vatican with When In Rome. And while the convenience of skipping the line as well as the price were well worth it, having Luigi as a tour guide made the experience unforgettable. He was hilarious, passionate, and absolutely genius in his encyclopedia knowledge of religion, history, art, politics, as well as his... More

We had signed up for a seven hours tour of the Colosseum, forum Romanum, piazza Venezia, pantheon, and a tour of the vatican museum and the sistine chapel. Lot to take in during One day, but our guide Chiara made this to a very enjoyable day. Her vast knowledge of the sites and the art made it to an unforgettable... More
