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

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.

It was very difficult to understand the guide. She had a heavy accent, but was very nice. Very crowded tour.

My husband and I just came home from Rome. What a wonderful trip. We booked 2 tours with "When In Rome" before we left and couldn't be any happier that we did. First off, Luigi was our tour guide for the Vatican. He was so informative and interested in what we wanted to know. He amazed us with his knowledge.... More

We had a tour through the Vatican, with our tourguide Luigi. We were very happy we had Luigi as a tourguide, he had an enormous amount of knowledge and combined this with great humor. We would recommend this tour to anyone, since otherwise you would understand way less of the vatican, the art and the history. Thanks again to Luigi!!... More

My girlfriend and I were hesitant to take a tour of the Vatican. We wanted to be free to see what we wanted. Our guide Daniela Senise made us happy we chose to take the tour. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the tour, but she was very charming and entertaining. Most importantly, she allowed time for us to... More
