Borghese was our favorite stop in a Rome, probably because of our guide Lindy.. What a great job she did and so informative. More important, she took time to caution the group about the does and do nots of Rome. Great knowledge , caring attitude and fun personality....complemented by the intrigue of a Borghese was a winning combination !! Thank you .
My husband and I great time with Rebeca .She knows so much and in love with place. Best wishes to her. Thank o lot . Sukhmans family.
Great guide, very informative. Tour is limited to two hours and time was well-used.
Truly an amazing experience - the gallery is stunning - there is so much more than 2 hours can allow you to see. Rebecca - the guide was fantastic. She knew everything about the pictures and sculptures that we discussed and plenty about the rest of the gallery that we just walked through. She really made art exciting and both my husband and I were thrilled with the information we learned that day and the gorgeous art we got to experience. Definitely recommended!
The tour guide was very well informed. Bernini's Daphne and Apollo sculpture was breathtaking. We enjoyed the walk through the gardens and were impressed with the size. We weren't able to see the formal gardens because they were closed that day.
Don't miss this tour! It is fantastic and you don't have to be an art historian to enjoy it either. Our guide Rebecca was the best! She lives and breathes the art and Roman lifestyle and this comes out in her tour. Great tour of the gallery and gardens!
Excellent value. Knowledgeable tour leader demonstrated a passion for what she was showing us and made us feel we had sampled the best in the museum. Skipping the lines and in fact being assured of a tour at the time we wanted was important. Tickets were not available at the museum for several days following our tour.
This was a wonderful Gallery and our guide was great, very passionate about the work. Hearing the background of the artists and the work was so inspiring. We had a person in our group who knew little about art and he learned so much. Our guide kept us away from other tours so we could always hear her. The skip-the-line was great. The only disappointment was there was not as much gardens as I had anticipated.
Our guide (Masimo) was the best one of our trip. He was knowledgeable, and his English was perfect. He informed us of historical information about the artwork and he pointed out the subtle things on each piece that made them special. I usually do not like museums, but I loved this tour. I loved this museum and I loved the ability of our guide to help us understand each piece of artwork.
It was just what I had hoped for. Lots of stories about Caravaggio and other great masters. Our guide was funny, friendly and knowledgeable, and the museum is world class stunning. Thank you!!!
A beautiful spot. Rebecca was charming and knowledgeable, giving a Roman history lesson while walking through the gardens. Art history is her passion and she is the perfect tour guide for the gallery. A must do while in Rome. Much smaller crowds too. Don't miss it!
Guide was knowledgeable and humorous. Great explanation for novices like us. We skipped the park part of the tour but thoroughly enjoyed the museum part. Expensive but worth it.
The Borghese tour was the highlight of our time in Rome and a wonderful way to spend our last afternoon before returning home to Canada. Our guide, Rebecca Wright, was exceptional. Rebecca was well informed and really brought the paintings and sculptures to life for me. I don't have a lot of experience with interpreting art and Rebecca pointed out many nuances that I would likely have missed. As a result, I am inspired to read much more about some of the artists and have already ordered books on Caravaggio and Bernini! Rebecca also provided additional, interesting information about modern and ancient Rome as we walked through the gardens. I'd recommend any Rome tour led by Rebecca.
Excellent tour, so informative. Rebecca was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Her presentation was animated and enjoyable, a balance of fun and information. We would welcome another tour with her!
