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.

We were on our honeymoon in Rome and we booked a private tour to see the Vatican and a group tour to see ancient rome and the colosseum. Both tours were fantastic. Our tour guides Luigi (Vatican) And Sarah ( were so passionate about the sites and knew all the little stories and history behind every painting, monument, historical site, mythology etc. It made everything become so alive. Some people were surprised that we booked tours for the costs involved but they were every bit worth it and would recommend them to anyone.

My son and I took two separate tours with WheninRomeTours. Ancient Rome, with our guide Sarah, and The Vatican with Chiara. Without a guide, Ancient Rome and the Vatican will simply stun you with its beauty. With knowledgeable, informative teaching guides like Sarah and Chiara, you will leave Rome with understanding and appreciation for Rome's history, values, politics, humor and people. This depth adds magic to the beauty you will see on these tours. Our guides were very engaging. Their English was very good. They were both blessed with the personalities that warm you immediately and engage you completely. No boring teachers, these. I highly recommend these people and what they do to make your tour of Rome more, more special.

Thanks for a wonderful trip around the Vatican museums and Basilica on Monday (16th sept). We would especially like to thank and congratulate our guide, Chiara. She was so welcoming, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. She made our trip by helping us to focus on the most interesting items within the museums and adding a lot of detailed information about our surroundings. We would definitely recommend this company for expert organisation and communications - down to confirmations and exactly where to find the office to meet.
