Why Choose Romaround



1. Gain a deeper understanding 

All our guides have university degrees either in Arts, History or Archeology. Most of the times they also have postgraduate degrees and specialization in specific topics. They will be happy to share with you the knowledge and the insights to make you gain a deep understanding of the treasures of Rome or your city of choice. And of course they are perfectly fluent in English


2. Have fun

We carefully select our tour guides also based on their personal characteristics. Romaround guides are friendly, entertaining and passionate about their work. We want to make sure that your private tour will be not only educational but also a fun experience


3. Skip the long queues

We will make reservations to all major attractions (like Vatican museum and Uffizi Gallery) so that you will not waste time waiting in lines. Additionally we can give you suggestions for restaurants and make the reservations for you (please note that reservations are made only in conjunction with the purchase of a tour)


4. Enjoy total comfort

Worried about being late or not finding the meeting point ? If you wish, your private guide will come to meet you at the hotel so you can start your day in total relax


5. Be safe

All our guides have gained the Official Tour Guide License by passing a rigorous test administered by the Municipality.  This provides an additional guarantee of quality. Please note that if you take a guide who is NOT officially licensed (as some companies are offering), you are incurring the risk that during a control done by the Municipal Police the guide will be forced to stop the tour with you 


6. Don't waste your time

We offer only private tours because time is precious and we want to give you full flexibility for enjoying your time. With a Romaround guide you will be totally free to stop for a gelato (the famous Italian icecream), ask one hundred questions about one place or skip something that you or your family members are not interested in


7. Discover the local flavor

Why coming to Rome and choosing a tour guide from Minnesota ? We believe that the time with your guide is part of your Italian experience and that only a local guide will give you the true Italian flavor and will be able to answer all your questions about the culture and way of life. That’s why all our guides are truly locals


8. Committed to responsible travel

At Romaround we share the values of responsible travel. We employe only local official guides. We help our guest discovering the local culture. We suggest how and where to buy true local products. We offer walking tours to minimize the impact on the environment. And we are committed to responsible travel when we go around the world ourselves.


9. Know who you are talking to

Romaround was founded in 2002 by Sandra Errichetti, who spent a lifetime of passion in the arts field and has been a licensed guide in Rome for more than 10 years. When buying a tour you will know in advance who your guide will be and receive his/her picture and biography. Unlike other companies, with Romaround you know exactly who you are dealing with. And you can be sure we have many years of experience in creating beautiful Italian memories for our guests

Also let us know if you have any special needs (disabilities, travelling with children) and we will make sure that the tour will be perfectly suited for you


12. An industry benchmark

During more than 10 years of work we witnessed various attempts to imitate or copy us. Romaround is a trade mark legally registered in Italy and USA. This is the oldest Romaround domain name on the web. Although you may find another company illegally using our name (if they are still in business), this is the official Romaround. Other companies have even copy-pasted some of our web pages (like this very page of "Why choosing Romaround". Though it may be sad to see free-riders using our work to their benefit, we are very proud to be a benchmark for guided tours in Rome.
