    What to Expect
    How does it work?

    Book a tour with CityUnscripted. We will contact you within 24 hours and ask you question about your preferences and interests, so we can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded Local Roman. He or she who will become your guide. 

    Keeping in mind your personal answers we will put together a bespoke itinerary, just for you. 

    We will arrange a meeting with your guide in the most convenient place for you. If during the tour you feel like changing direction, or your guide believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. You will tell us how long you'd like your tour to be, this can be as short as 1 hour or as long as a whole day.

    Enjoy discovering amazing spots in Rome that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the Internet, because they are lesser known to the crowd but beloved by Locals! The day revolves around your wishes so enjoy your private tour and let your Local show you the Rome you will love.
