About What a Life Tours

What started off in 2006 as a modest hobby project between a young couple and a few hopeful tour guide friends has since developed into the front-running, award-winning Rome tour company we see today – What a Life Tours. In our 12 years of business, we’ve served over 650,000 satisfied visitors from every corner of the world whose reviews have consistently maintained our top position on TripAdvisor for things to do at the Vatican.

Though our team has grown exponentially since our humble beginnings, our top-quality family business approach has remained a strict priority. The foundation of our company is, and always has been, based on offering the best quality in tours and customer service – which is evident in the passion and professionalism of every What a Life Tours “family” member.

Extraordinary Tours of Italy Since 2006

Our Tours

With a well-rounded team of the city’s top art historians, archeologists, and other experts on board, we’re able to offer a wide range of tours in and around Rome. Whether you are looking for a group tour or private tour, highlight hunting or wandering off the beaten track, or even requesting a personalized theme tour – we’ve probably got one that’s just right for you.

Each itinerary has been carefully hand-crafted in close collaboration with our expert guides to give our customers the very best experience at each and every stop. With our private tours, there is almost no limit to the flexibility and amount of tailoring that we can do to create your very own dream tour. Skip-the-line access to all sights is naturally the cherry on the cake!

Our Offices

The highlight of our job is having the opportunity to meet our customers – wide-eyed travellers from every corner of the globe! Fortunately, our cosy headquarters provide a peaceful little air-conditioned corner only steps from the Vatican entrance to duck in and take a break from the heat and the buzzing of the city – so feel free to stop by if you happen to be in the area!

We’re open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday and our doors are always open. Relax on the couch and take a moment to cool off. Our native English speaking customer care team will be happy to assist you with your queries and share their insider advice – as well as offer you a free cappuccino!

Tour Guides with Spirit

Our Guides

Our spectacular guides are the very heart and core of the company – without them there would undoubtedly be no What A Life Tours. We are grateful for their passion and wisdom – and so are the thousands of guests who have taken the time to write five-star reviews on TripAdvisor. Some of our cicerones have been with us from the very start, while others have been hand-picked to hop on board along the way, but they all have one thing in common – their infinite love for Rome.

Enganging, fun, and endlessly knowledgeable, each and every one of our team members possesses the fundamental virtues of guidedom and their qualities shine through in their interactions with visitors on a daily basis. We are not only able to offer a tour in almost any language, but we can also ensure that your guide will be of the highest standard in the field – a friendly, well-versed historian with a knack for story telling.
