This was our favorite tour. Our guide, Stephanie was excellent. She made this a fantastic experience. She spoke excellent English- no trace of accent. She knew the museum well and picked out several pieces of art in each room and gave so much information and wonderful stories about each one. Also, she gave us such great history lessons about the artists and Rome in general. My daughter, who is not an art lover, really loved all the history and was never bored. She also enjoyed this tour the best of all we did in Rome. If you go, I suggest you request Stephanie if you can!
Kinga was an excellent guide. She was very well informed, not only with respect to the Borghese itself, but to the greater world of Renaissance and Classic art and architecture as well. She answered all questions with aplomb and remained remarkably energetic and cheerful even though she had a cold. She made the tour a wonderful experience
Excellent tour, a must do while in Rome! Rebecca our guide was amazing! She was so enthusiastic, captivating and very knowledgeable! My kids who are 14,12,9 loved this tour and never were bored! Thank you Rebecca!
Louise was the best. What a talented and friendly person. She knew so much and had a wonderful way of narrating it.
The tour was actually the best one we did in Rome. The tour guide Louise, I think her name was Louise, simply was amazing with her knowledge and obviously love of art and art history! What a difference to have an experience tour guide show and explain art like she did!
Truth be told I didn't get much out of the garden walk but the view at the end was spectacular!
The high point was that we felt well taken care of and learned so much more about this beautiful gallery!
Faboulous! Our guide showed us art works in a way that will stay with me forever - lively, informative, imaginative. Highlight of my two weeks in Rome. Do it!
We toured countless museums and churches while in Europe for three weeks and this was probably the hilight for me. The guide was personable, knowledgeable and very entertaining. The exhibit was spectacular and you were able to get right up to the paintings and sculptures. The tour of the grounds was also beautiful and helped put context into the museum's existence. I am so glad we spent our time at the Borghese instead of fighting the crowds at the Coliseum.
The organisation of "World Wonders" was excellent. The guide Rebecca was terrific (she showed us every secret and was so funny-minded! She made history alive for us. It is so unbelievable that I got that ticket only 2 days in advance, because I tried this earlier to see Borghese Gallery, but normally you have to book this 4 weeks in advance.
Luca was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. He added in a lot of interesting info/facts about the art we were looking at. Went in the afternoon and it wasn't really crowded which was nice.
So glad we did the tour - our guide explained so much and told wonderful stories that made the artists in the gallery come alive to us. Excellent experience!!!!
The guide was fantastic. very informative, passionate and interesting. The Gallery was the best tour I experienced during my month in Italy.
My only disappointment was your booking procedure and your inability to assists with changing the date of a booking. All care and no responsibility.
Our tour through the Borghese was exceptional! Stephanie was remarkably well versed on the paintings, sculptures, the building and the gardens. Her expertise made this gallery come alive. We had not planned on visiting the Borghese, but after reading about it we decided to go. However, without a guide like Stephanie, who provided the background, history and context, we would have not understood or appreciated the outstanding collection. She was outstanding! We highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Rome. Don't miss it!! (Even better if you can get Stephanie as your guide.)
Rebecca took on an amazing journey that we will never forget. She greeted us warmly and made us feel so special! She learned all of our names and quickly figured out our interests so that we each felt that the tour was just for us! My teens did not want to leave.... Our favorite tour and our favorite tour guide! Rebecca was extremely knowledgeable and shared a great deal of her knowledge with us! Fascinating! Enthusiastic! She is the best!
