About Understanding Rome Tours
Private tours of Rome taking the Eternal City at your pace, and focusing on what interests you. Proud to be licensed as a guide by the Metropolitan City of Rome, I have 18 years experience guiding in the city and organize tailor-made private tours of the Rome and environs. Exploring the city's multiple layers is relentlessly rewarding, and the only way to understand Rome. Understanding Rome is recommended by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Times, the Rough Guide to Rome, the Sydney Sun Herald, and Conde Nast Traveller's Rome App amongst others.

Agnes Crawford is the best tour guide I've ever had. Despite the pouring rain, Agnes kept our family enthralled as she explained the history of Ancient Rome as reflected in the Colosseum and Forum. She is incredibly knowledgeable, articulate and funny.

My mom, 14 year old daughter, and myself had a private tour with Serena of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill. It was a beautiful day spent learning the history of the places we visited and beyond. Serena was so informative and answered all the questions we had and truly made our trip. Will definitely book another tour next time we visit. Highly recommend!!! Thanks again Serena!!!

You can read all the guide books in the world but you just can’t beat being lead through history by an erudite and enthusiastic guide. One who can take you beyond and beneath the obvious with explanations, cultural references and links; who knows their subject comprehensively but whose tours are never laboured or mechanical; who tailors the visit to your individual requirements and with whom you can engage in engrossing discussion about what you see before you. Agnes Crawford is such a guide. This was our third tour with Agnes and we cannot wait for the next!

We took two different tours, one with Agnes and one with Serena. Both women were fantastic and extremely accommodating to our interests. They really knew their stuff and were happy to answer any questions we had as well as offer personal tidbits to make the trip even better for us. I would highly recommend their tours, I am confident you will enjoy them as much as we did!

Agnes is an amazing guide. We took a 3 hour tour, 2 days in a row. Not only is she a subject matter expert on all things Rome, her knowledge of the city allows her to navigate the streets, sights and museums like no other. She accommodated our every wish, lots of great photo ops, even taking pics of us herself. We skipped all the lines and crowds and got an in depth history lesson on all the "must see" treasures Rome has to offer. Truly an amazing experience. Thank you Agnes.
