This was a good experience, but we would have benefited from an audio tour.
Incredible gallery, well worth the visit. Viatour handled us extremely well, and despite a mix up with availability, still got us in. Thanks!
Great to skip the line. The Borghese Gallery is in itself amazing as are the artworks. We just got our entry tickets - but next time around would do a guided tour - I think you get so much more out of it.
It worked just the way your ad said it would!!! We were greatly pleased. It was easy to book, assured that our reservation would be there and that there would be no glitches. Wonderful. We will use Viator again!
Loved the beautiful collection of the Borghese Family, as well as the beautiful grounds. Well worth the visit, and perhaps, a re-visit some day. E.B.
Wonderful gallery of art. As they only allow a limited number in at a time, you can really see each piece well.
The tour itself was fantastic. The guide was well informed, we did not have to wait. The only negative - I had to look for the way from underground for 40 minutes, there wa no any sign how to find Villa
We left the reservation to the last minute and were unable to get tickets via the normal route. Viator to the rescue! They met us in front at the appointed time and in we went. The Borghese Gallery is a must see in Rome.
Our agent met us on time at the designated location which was easy to find. Skip the line does not mean you won't spend any time in line as after the ticket line there is a line to store bags (required) then the line to get in if you arrive at opening. But it is still worth it.
Great gallery! We upgraded to a guide, and it was worth it...we learned a lot.
The collection speaks for itself. From what I heard the guides saying I was right to have spared myself the expense. One comes to see art and to hear it talk.
My wife and I met Samantha, our Tour Guide, in front of the entrance to the Borghese Museum in very heavy rain. Alex also was there with his clipboard, so I knew everything would be all right (i.e., I had met him in the morning for the Capitoline Tour). There were two tour groups meeting at the same time, but everything proceeded in a very orderly manner despite the rainy conditions. Upon entering the Museum, Samantha immediately took us to see the four masterpieces of sculpture by Bernini and gave us a detailed explanation of the background and highlights of each work. We then proceeded to see the other famous sculpture and artwork (Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, etc.) in the Museum, and Samantha gave us a comprehensive background of each piece. She also explained the important role of the Borghese Family in collecting these masterpieces and displaying them in the Villa and protecting them from confiscation by Napoleon Bonarparte. It was a very informative and rewarding experience. Kudos to Alex and Samantha for assemblying our group in the heavy rain "without a hitch". James S.
