Who Are The Rogue Historians?

Dirty secret time.......The Rogue Historians were founded by two archaeologists!  Rachel and Ian met in Rome in 2011, they founded The Rogue Historian and in 2015 they got married relocated to Lisbon in 2016. The family and team have grown since then, with a close-knit group of guides operating in both Rome and Lisbon sticking to our original premise of affordable and sustainable tourism.

Who are we

While many travelers and tour-operators focus on the “surface” of the city and its main highlights, The Rogue Historians like to dig a little deeper and tell travelers about the authentic side of both cities and approach showing their history from a different angle: their rise and fall, their historic shops, the iconic food from places only known by the locals, real neighborhoods, where local communities live and enjoy their daily life. Our tours are inclusive and story-telling orientated, our local guides are experts in their fields and passionate about showing you the beauty of Rome and Lisbon.
