This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide, Rebecca, was exceptional. She was very passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Ostia. She made the history very interesting and was able to capture the group's attention throughout the entirety of the tour. I came away with a good understanding of the ancient port city.
I was very disappointed in this tour. Certainly, the artwork in the Borghese is magnificent. Our tour guide (I can't recall her name but she was from Argentina) was quite disorganized and rushed throughout the tour. She also seemed to have a bit of an attitude and made a lot of inappropriate remarks. She didn't seem to possess great knowledge of the artwork.
Also, I think this tour is a bit misleading. The "gardens" portion is actually a walk through the surrounding landscape park (free to the public)--not the giardino segretto or enclosed gardens that are attached to the Villa Borghese.
