We were very fortunate in having an excellent guide in Rebecka. She was most informative on both the Gallery and the Gardens Walk.
We would recommend the tour to anybody.
I loved this tour only because our tour guide was extremely knowledge about Caravaggio and borghese. I want to go back and the tour with her. Her passion with Caravaggio showed just how much she knew about the art in the Borghese gallery. Unfortunately, I forgot her name, but I do know that she is from Northern Europe (Scandinavian).
This was well worth the trip. Our guide was so knowledgable and loved what she was doing. The tour was well organized and everyone was friendly. The museum was magnificent as well as the gardens. I wish you were able to take photographs and spend more than 2 hours there, but it was still worth the money. it did keep the crowds down and allowed you to see much more this way. We had thought about seeing the museum on our own, but we are so glad we chose the tour. We got a lot of family back round and history of the individual pieces of art and sculptures as well has history on the museum itself.
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the many outstanding works of art and about thehistory of the palace. It would have been very difficult to know what we were looking at without her commentary. Thetour certainly worth the price.
The tour was amazing and the tour guide Maximus was also extremely knowledgeable. I loved all the tours I took with the Dark Rome Tour Company. I recommend this company to anyone traveling in Italy.
This was our first tour in Rome. Was a long tour, which we knew ahead of time, but we were ready. Our tour guide Luca was great, awesome, and I could list all the positive adjectives about him. He made the tour so interesting; school teachers should be teaching art history like this. Anwsered all the questions, had a very good selection of paintings to give detailed information of. The tour was very well organized, easy to find meeting point, no line up. Would do it again.
Our guide was Violet and she was wonderful. Her depth and breath of knowledge is excellent as is her passion to transmit her knowledge to all of us. She is the best.
Very informative. Looked at key pieces of art and sculpture and told stories that brought the piece and artist to life.
The tour was excellent and Stephanie provided wonderful service and tour dialogue.
We loved our tour of the Borghese gallery. It was a highlight of our time in Rome. It has wonderful art, and is a manageable size - much less overwhelming than the Vatican museums which allows you to really enjoy the art. Our guide, Violet, was wonderful. Very knowledgable, informative and entertaining, and with a real passion for the art which added to the experience. Our children aged 13 and 11 also loved this tour. We went on our first day in Rome, which worked well as we were able to spot paintings and sculptures by our favorite
artists in the churches etc during the rest of our time in Rome and Italy.
This was an amazing experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and full of anecdotes of history and humorous stories. The museum was so beautiful, but would not have been so enjoyable without the commentary of our guide. She enhanced the experience, one would not have been able to read all she imparted in the few hours we were together. Thanks. All our many Viator Tours in Rome were so well done.
Rebecca our tour guide was fantastic, very informative and enthusiastic making the experiece quite memorable.
