We loved this tour and our guide was brilliant. Less crowded than Paris museums, you will see Baroque art and Bernini sculptures that are amazing. The small group is much preferred and well worth the cost.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide, Barbara, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and gave us in site about not only the artist but the painting or sculpture we were looking at. She pointed out different attributes of the painting or sculpture that you might miss if you do not have a trained eye. I highly recommend this tour.

I booked this tour as basically an after-thought. They only let in about 300 people at a time and for only 2 hours, so you really need to have some sort of tour guide to keep you moving. Angela, our tour guide did a wonderful job of taking us through the gallery and explaining the various works of art. It was definitely the most pleasant surprise of my vacation.

Our tour guide was excellent! Not only did she know her art history inside and out but was so good at providing the background and insights about each piece she even kept out two teenage boys engaged! There was so much to see bit she did a great job of covering the highlights and was incredibly personable and fun!
