Excellent tour of Boghese Gallery and gardens. Pia was our tour guide and she was wonderful . She is an Art History teacher and very knowledgeable of the Gallery. You spend two hrs in the Gallery and an hour in the Gardens. City Wonders meets you, divides you in groups and gives you headsets. You must be on time for this tour. Borghese controls how many people can be in the Gallery. If you are on this tour your guide will lock up your valuables in a cage. you cannot carry anything in like a purse, backpack. you can take cameras and cell phone- no flash,
The Guide met us right outside the Borghese Gallery, We did not go in with a guide, but before going in bought the Self Audio Tour, which was more then enough to understand what we were seeing at the gallery. I would remind everyone they do not allow bags into the Gallery, so make sure you literally come with nothing, but money to purchase the self directed audio tour, which is given in the basement of the gallery. If you don't go in with a audio guide, it is just staring at a bunch of monuments, without understanding the perspective of what the gallery is trying to portray! Definitely worthwhile to visit!
We received our entrance tickets at the set time and in the designated area.
Wonderfully fun and knowledgeable guide... Passionate about art and its history. A real pleasure.
favorite museum was easy to go alone with just skip the line tickets.
Great gallery, the skip the line option is needed due to strick in and out time slots... it sells out days in advance if you do not prepay.
Someone met us at the entryway and exchanged our vouchers for tickets. We got in as soon as the doors opened, checked our purses they're not allowed in, but the gallery has a secure way of checking them, and then enjoyed the magnificent art from across many centuries. The Borghese Gallery is a must see for any visitor to Rome.
Worth it just to skip the line and be assured of reservation at this extraordinary place. Be sure to check out the Gardens and the Etruscan museum easily walkable from the Borghese Gallery.
. This was an excellent tour! Our guide was very good and she gave us detailed explanations of all the paintings and sculptures we saw. I highly recommend it.
We had a VERY small group 10 people! with a FANTASTIC guide Roberto from Switzerland. He is educated in history and art and made it all come to life no boring classroom lecture!. Unfortunately, the Borghese limits entry for 2 hours and they strictly escort everyone out of the gallery at the 2 hour mark, otherwise we would have spent more time! After, Roberto walked 5 of us, who remained, through the Borghese park, sharing more about the history of the family and of Rome. It was a wonderful tour.
Wonderful way to avoid disappointment of not finding day tickets at Borghese gallery. This a must for advance gallery ticket booking. Good price.
We had been advised of the need to book well in advance and this was of great benefit as gallery booked out for a number of days. We accessed the gallery with no problems and guided ourselves. Unbelievable art works, memorising!
Our guide shared so much history with us, and was excited about it. Well worth the money.
Great to have a ticket and get in with no hassles. We didn't do a tour, just a skip-the-line, which my kids and husband appreciated as they are not into museum tours!
This was a marvellous tour organised by City Wonders. We were fortunate enough to have Rebecca as our guide, who was simply wonderful. She was in love with Bernini and shared her passion for his work enthusiastically with us. She was incredibly knowledgeable and made his work come alive for us. She was an expert guide in the Gallery and negotiated her way around avoiding the other tour groups and giving us the best experience. She managed to cram in a huge amount in our allotted two hours.
Guide was very knowledgable and her English and communication was good.
The process of getting tickets was easy and fast. The regular line was not that long when we arrived, but it was comforting to know that we would get in the museum as planned. The museum was outstanding.

The skip the line tickets with a self guided audio tour made for a very enjoyable experience.
We viewed the exhibits independently but with the aid of head sets. It was brilliant. Wonderful art and very good explanations
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would not attempt to tour this museum any other way.
Only 250 people at one time, on these two hours visit the gallery time. These prepaid skip the line are essentials. Borghese Gallery was full of amazing treasures. I warmly recommend it.
