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.
Great tour guide- Angela was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic- highly recommend
The highlight of my trip to Rome. Enthusiastic experienced and professional guide Jonathan, peaceful green gardens, beautiful house and not too extensive collection of art. Learned and laughed a lot. Will return to this site every time I visit Rome.
This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Our guide was very knowledgably and sharing this knowledge was very important to him.
Fantastic tour of world class art. I especially enjoyed the 360 degrees explanations of the Bernini marble statutes. The surrounding gardens are enchanting. Overall - terrific
This was my favorite tour of several, Our guide was an art historian and was very knowledgeable and friendly. Truly great tour. Thank you.1
Luca was a great guide and made the tour really interesting. This tour is a must do when visiting Rome
Congratulations on the tour to the Borghese Gallery and Gardens performed by City Wonders. The organization was good, we could meet our guide without a problem. The place itself helps a lot, however, escorted by an excellent guide it turned our visit into a memorable experience. I really want to compliment City Wonder's employee, Mikaela.
She demonstrated inside knowledge and enthusiasm. That gave us a welcome sense of a very well done work so important in today's world, right? Thank you Mikaela, you are a pro.

REALLY happy that we decided to do this last minute. Our guide, Rebecca, was one of the best tour guides that we've ever had on our many world travels. Her passion for the history and the art is infectious. She was brilliant weaving the historical stories and figures with the appreciation of the art. So much so, that this was one of our 15 year old daughter's favorite tours. We thought she'd be bored to tears. The grounds/ park is beautiful we went back to it another day and highly recommend the crepes and hot chocolate at the little park cafe.
The best tour in Rome! Wonderful knowledgeable guide. As there was a limited, numbered access to the building there was a lovely peaceful feeling with the opportunity to enjoy the art in peace and quiet
amazing art pieces in the Gallery, worth the trip which is not so touristy
the garden is not very impressive and can do it in half an hour instead of an hour
Fantastic tour guide who was incredibly interesting and bought this gallery alive for us.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a lot of fun. It was convenient to sign up in advance. Would highly recommend!
Great experience. Very informative and knowledgable guide. If you want to get the best out of Villa Borghese, take this tour. You will save time, learn a lot and enjoy your time there.
