This tour was awesome, and that doesn't even begin to describe the incredible art work in the Borghese Gallery and Gardens. Our tour Rebecca was the main reason why it was so enjoyable. She really brought life the tour in her in depth knowledge of the gallery and it's creators, as well as the artists who's paintings and sculptures filled the museum. Rebecca moved at a pleasant pace and was always accommodating. I can't say enough about this tour, and if you're lucking enough to get Rebecca, it will be even more enjoyable.

Best tour we had in Italy. The guide was outstanding, making the experience so much more, and skipping the line is, as always, a big advantage.

This is a wonderful gallery, worth a visit just to see the Caravaggio masterpieces. Our guide Jon was helpful and knowledgeable, though we visited on a very hot and humid day, and many of our group were pretty exhausted by the time the tour started at 3pm so skipped the garden walk which ends the tour. If I have one suggestion it'd be to try and arrange the same tour to the morning, though I don't know if this is possible. Anyway, I found a visit here more enjoyable than a previous trip to the Vatican museums. A must-see gallery in Rome for anyone with even the slightest interest in art history.

This place is in the heart of Romes version of NYCs Central Park. A lot of activity. I wasn't even into art and saw some pretty amazing pieces. The museum has the best statue of David.

An excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. My wife and I would have missed so much by going around the Gallery by ourselves. Thank you.

Loved the tour. Thought Lindy did a fantastic job! She was very knowledgable on art, art history and the collection at the gallery. Loved hearing her thoughts and stories behind the works. She brought the artwork to life by doing this. She was also very clever at finding us rooms free of others

This is the only way to experience this gallery in view of the tight timelines imposed on visitors. Our guide ,Stephanie, was clearly passionate about the subject matter and did a fantastic job pointing out the subtleties of each work. The gardens were something of a disappointment as they are no longer well tended or groomed

This is a wonderful tour and Stephanie, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable. Bernini sculptures are remarkable. The quantity and quality of the art are impressive and the history behind the gallery is very interesting. The Gardens are immense and magnificent. Save time to go back and go to the zoo. There is only one caveat: you have to walk to the top floor of the gallery to start the tour 81 steps.

Top-notch tour and the tour guide was incredible, too. Best art museum in Rome. This gem is well worth your time. The additional walking tour of the grounds was delightful, too. The surprise at the end is an incredible view of Rome.

Excellent tour. Andy was very knowledgeable on the art and helped point out things I certainly would have missed otherwise. Borghese Gallery is often THE gallery sited as a must visit in Rome and I agree. Note that if you go on your own, you have to book tickets in advance. This was much easier.
