We decided to book a private tour of old Rome rather than a join in tour. As there were 3 of us, the price was very good. The scope of knowledge handed down to us by our guide in the Coliseum and forum area was very impressive. This continued on through the historic center. We passed by other tours and felt that we were getting a far superior experience than that of other tourists nearby. Private tour of Historic Rome with When in Rome tours comes very highly recommended by us.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see as much of Rome as they possibly can! We had a very small group and Kierra was an amazing tour guide. She was so informative and would answer any of our questions. The best part was the books she had. I loved the Rome one so much I bought one after the tour! The Vatican was also really cool to see. The Sistine Chapel was amazing along with the other paintings there.
Let it be said that a couple of days walking around Rome will touch on most of the city centre's... Read about the tour
We weren't absolutely full at the end, but the tastings were very interesting and diverse taken from various spots in the historic centre, i.e. close to the Pantheon and Navona Square. Our guide, Giuliano, was an expert foodie he really knew his stuff and we were very grateful to spend several hours in his esteemed company. Get a taste of Rome!

We just did a Vatican tour with Luigi and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it. Luigi was wonderful, extremely knowledgable, kind, funny and very helpful. He stayed after and helped direct some of us on to other things, very appreciated. We will definitely pass this information on to our friends and our hotel. Thank you and Luigi for making our first trip to the Vatican feel successful instead of chaotic, which I think it would have been without your help.
Our tour guide was Chiara and omg she was outstanding!!! She was full of knowledge about everything. We learned so... Read about the tour
We just finished our tour with Luigi, and we couldn't even wait until we got home to write you and tell you how fantastic he was!!! What an incredible guide, genuine and so thorough in his knowledge of Rome and Italy's history. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you so much for the last minute change and of course for giving us one of your best. We will certainly recommend any and all of our friends coming to Rome to When In Rome for their tours! Sincerely, Will and Fiona

Some friends of ours had returned from Rome having taken tours with several operators, namely City Wonders, Walks of Italy, and When In Rome Tours. They strongly advised us to call upon the services of When in Rome and their key guides Chiara and Christina, both of whom we managed to get. What a magnificent two days of tours, we are quite sure that we saw it all! As there were 3 of us, the value of the experience was optimal. I recommend When In Rome Tours most highly!!

We booked the When in Rome package which included transfers from the airport to our hotel. Even though our flight was 40 minutes late we still found our driver awaiting us no problem. We were also picked up on return on time too. Our first tour was of Ancient Rome - colleseum, Pantheon, forum, Trevi fountain etc. The tour was a 4hour walking tour but we saw so much and learnt loads from our tour guide Sarah. Without the tour we would have missed so much information. The only downfall of this was it might have been enter to end the tour in the forum so we could have walked around this area ourselves afterwards. The second tour we did was the Vaticantour. Our guide was Chiara. She was extremely informative and amusing. She was so enthusiastic and despite not being art enthusiasts we learnt so much from her. The only downfall was that it was new years eve and the Sistine Chapel and St Peters chapel were being closed early. As these are at the end of the tour we spent less than 5 minutes in the Sistine chapel in a rush to get into the church. In the church we had perhaps 30 minutes and did not have time to see the catacombs as these were also closed. I completely understand this was not the tour guides fault however it would have been helpful when making the booking had we been warned this could happen due to the date so we could have picked another date. Overall I would highly recommend When In Rome Tours for their informative guides and helping to make Rome feel alive!

We didn't get to see the underground but for the low price we paid it was fair. As I understand, When in Rome Tours will be offering full scope Colosseum tours next year of the underground and levels 4 and 5 so we'll definitely return to see that! On the whole our tour was great and the guide Giuliano was brilliant.
