Bernini is better than Michelangelo, Caravaggio is damn good, and our guide Andy was fantastic. And in addition he was extremely knowledgeable. A must do on anyone's grand tour!
Just amazing. So many beautiful pieces to be found here and having the added insight of the guide into the history of the works and the house and gardens worth the extra just makes the whole experience complete. Your visit here is strictly time limited so for me the guide was essential to ensure you got the pace right to cover the whole exhibition and get the most time at some of the incredible pieces like Berninis Daphne and Apollo. Worth the price of admission just to see this. This Gallery and gardens should not be overlooked.
The guide rebecca was brilliant. She was so enthusiastic and lively she can make anyone fall in love with the tour
The tour was great. Our tour guide - John was awesome. He was funny and engaging. He really made the tour interesting. Also he made Fred Armisen laugh.
Wonderful tour, our guide Rebekah, with her vast knowledge and interesting anecdotes made our visit remarkable. It is a pity that just two hours is all that is permitted to visit such an important collection!
Rebecca was an amazing guide! Very knowledgable and funny. She made the paintings and sculptures come alive for my husband and I. Especially with Bernini and Caravaggio. We really enjoyed having her as a guide and would definitely recommend this tour to our friends who are visiting Rome.

Wonderful way to experience a lesser known area of Rome and absorb the culture through the local food. Our guide Betheny was terrific!
Rebecca was very pleasant and kept us engaged thoughout the tour with all the history she gave us on the gallarey and gardens. She made our visit to the Borghese Gallery a pleant experience which we will treasure forever.
Tour was great. Our guide Rebecca was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the gallery and its pieces. Highly recommend.
Andy is an outstanding guide
Directions on where to meet the tour are confusing
This was probably the best tour we experienced during our 3 1/2 week visit to Italy. Pia, our guide, was an art history professor and really knew how to keep us interested in out tour, as well as to share with us the appropriate amount of information to a group of individuals that may not necessarily have an extensive background in art history. We left with a greater understanding or art. Also, the museum limits the number of individuals in the museum at any one time, so there are no crowds to deal with. There was a walking tour or the gardens that was also very informative.
This tour was absolutely stunning and amazing!! I was fascinated by the beautiful gallery of art and the serenity and peacefulness of the garden. Our guide, Lindsay explained the artwork and garden tour so simply and yet in such detail that I felt I'd lived in the time the pieces were created. Best!
Excellent. Tour guide Rebecca was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. She made the Bernini sculptures come alive.
We booked several tours in Viator and Citywonders and my friends and I agree that Gio, our tour guide for the Borghese Gallery was the best tour guide we've had. For 3 hours, we enjoyed the fascinating story about the Borghese family and the arts. Gio was passionate and engaging tour guide very articulate and knowledgable on the subject. Not been a fan of art but Gio inspired me to buy a book and learn more about the history of the gallery, the art and Rome in general. Other tour guides can learn from Gio! Thanks Gio for a great tour!
Perfectly run. Guide John was very knowledgeable and helpful with Rome dining suggestions. Fyi, gallery is very warm so bring water, all bags will be safely checked in tour group bin so it was fast and safe.
Excellent. Had an American guide who was very knowledgable. Rebecca really put more effort than most guides in everything she did. The art collection was amazing and the Villa is stunning. Only minor problem was no a/c. Ventilation was open windows.
We had a great tour guide who provided us with great insight into not only the gallery and the gardens but into the artwork in the gallery.
Great tour - guide was knowledgable Really helped explain some history of the artists and their work. Really should see this museum.
This was so GREAT. Our guide Rebecca conveyed her knowledge and passion for the art that we were viewing which completely enhanced the tour. I would recommend this tour to everyone who reads this review - it was a great experience and just hope you get Rebecca as your guide, especially if you want to fall in love with Bernini :- Well worth the price, and time well spent.
