For the gallery the tour is definitely needed unless you are an expert in renaissance paintings and sculpting. I’d like a hit more time in the gallery itself. The tickets are sold out unless you book the tour like this or buy them far in advance. We had a great tour guide who was able to really tell a story about each artist and sculptor and lead us through the masterpieces.

You will not believe how amazingly beautiful this place is, and it is even better when you have a tour guide to explain everything. It is interesting and short enough to keep your attention, but also enough time to ask questions. Highly recommended

Cristina was outstanding. The walk inside the museum was very informative. It would probably good to the traveler knowing the main interest on the works at the museum, even though Cristina had a very good selection.

You should absolutely go to Borghese Gallery walking tour!
And if you are lucky, you will have Rebecca as a guide. She was truly amazing, passionate, knowledgable, engaging. She was one of best guides we had.

The Bernini and Canova sculptures are stunning and a must see in Rome. Sabrina also covered the art in the museum with a great history of the development of art through the renaissance period. A 2hr capped period in the museum to control the number of visitors in the gallery making the tour comfortably throughout. The walk through the gardens is relaxing but not much to see in this last hour of the tour.

I am so glad that I booked this tour. Although I had never heard of the Borghese Gallery, I read that it was worth the visit, and it was. One of the things that I loved was the fact that it was not as crowded as all of the other attractions in Rome. This was actually the last tour I took on my last day in Rome. I loved my tour guide Rebecca. She's an American who has been living in Europe for many years so her insights were great. I wish I had met her on my first day in Italy rather than my last. Her commentary on the masterpieces at the gallery were invaluable. I loved seeing the paintings and sculptures that were highlighted on the tour. It was amazing to see the works of Bernini, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and others. I know that telling others to go to the Borghese meands that it will become more crowded, but it really is worth going to see. If you can get Rebecca as your guide it will be the icing on the cake.

Our tour guide was Sabrina and she did an amazing job guiding us through the museum and providing insights into the history and meaning of the works of art in the museum. She was very enthusiastic and engaging and you could tell very passionate about the material. To see the museum you will need to book tickets for specific times anyways and you only have 2 hours per ticket to see the museum. There is no way to see everything in the museum in two hours so booking the tour helped to focus on some of the most stunning and interesting works. Just be aware that you will have to give up larger bags purses, backpacks into a large locked bin. This wasn't an issue for us but was for a member of our party. After the tour of the museum we chose to stick around for the garden tour to learn more about the Borghese family and the history of the area. If you have time and aren't tired from walking this part of the tour was also very informative and interesting. Overall we would highly recommend.

What a great tour. Our guide, Anna, was experts, detailed and fun. There was a ton of things to see, but she kept us on a good pace, explaining the priceless treasures with excellent detail. The quality and abundance of great works of art from a variety of the greats was almost overwhelming. Thanks to our guide we were able to experience, the galleria and garden in a detailed and relaxed manner. Many thanks!
