A wonderful experience . For those lovers of art this is not to be missed. The guide Andy was very knowledgable and shared lots of useful information about the pictures and sculptures . The walking tour around the gardens was a treat too. Highly recommended . I actually preferred this to the Vatican as much less crowded!

The tour guide for this was fantastic! Funny, witty, personable, a great story-teller, willing to give information/suggestions on everything and anything both on the tour and off the tour excited to share information and provide us with the experience, and knowledgeable. She spent a lot of time with us and, in fact, I think it was more than what was initially scheduled, which was definitely ok by me. She had a degree in Symbolology if you read the Davinci Code, it's the same thing Robert Langdon studied which is crazy cool, too! I just wish I could remember her name I was in the afternoon tour on 4/19, if that helps the company figure it out. The villa and garden were great, and completely worthwhile. It was all very beautiful, and there were lots of interesting and beautiful things to see. The cost of this tour is very reasonable, and most definitely worth the money.

Excellent tour. Highly recommended. Tour guide was very informative, interesting and friendly. Learned a lot more about the various artworks than if we had toured the gallery personally. Tour guide had a detailed knowledge had postgraduate knowledge in art history.

This was among the best tours I have ever taken primarily due to our guide, Rebecca. She made this museum tour come alive with her vast knowledge of the pieces, her passion for the works and helped us to focus on these artists in a way that helped me develop a whole new appreciation for them. This will be remembered as a highlight of this trip to Rome and a reason to return to learn more. If and when I am able to return, I will seek out Rebecca again for another tour. It was that compelling!

Fabulous! It helped we had a glorious day for the gardens. Guide was very knowledgeable. The two hour time limit did not allow much time for us to see much aside from what our guide explained, but still great. Would be even better if more time was permitted.

Our American guide Peter had american jokes ... very funny for Americans coming from Utah, Montana, Ohio, etc. For us, it was the less interesting tour even if the gallery as such was interesting.

after literally dragging the husband to do this tour, we both very much enjoyed it. First off the building itself is amazing and learning about the works of art was interesting too. afterwards you go outside and learn about the gardens. It was a beautiful day and all of Rome locals were out enjoying themselves. Our guide was very very knowledgable on history and what we were looking at. A lovely way to spend the afternoon.
