The Rogue Historians were founded on the premise of affordable and sustainable tourism. We are a group of archaeologists, classicists and passionate historians bored by the constraints of traditional tour companies. Instead, we have dedicated ourselves to giving tours that include all of Rome and Lisbon's history, including the rude bits most guide-books and large companies, gloss over.

Founded in 2013 by newlyweds Ian and Rachel, The Rogues' have a fast-growing reputation as a company that offers both quality and reliability. In 2015  we received over 150 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor and won 'Alternative Tour Operator of the Year for 2015'  from the Luxury Travel Guide.

The Rogues first expansion came in the exciting city of Lisbon. Lisbon is one of Europe's most up and coming cities and the Rogues are proud to be part of the great blossoming that Lisbon is going through at the moment.

The Rogue Historians is still managed by Rachel and Ian (and their 6-month-old daughter, who really runs everything) and a group of tight-knit guides. We are the company for those who don't wish to follow a guides umbrella with 30 other people for 3 hours a day. We are the company who will tell you the history your high-school teacher left out, we are 'The Rogue Historians'.

Rogue On!
