An excellent tour with an enthusiastic guide who brought the art work and statues to life.
Excellent Tour. Gianluca was an excellent tour guide. Excellent commentary on the outstanding art, sculpture and architecture. We followed a very well-thought-out path through the Gallery that helped explain the history of the Gallery and avoided some of the crowds. The walk through the gardens was also an unexpected plus even on a cold January day.
We loved our tour of the Borghese Gallery and the Gardens Walking Tour. Our guide was outstanding, explaining the art and sculptures in every room, making it all come alive to us. Our walk across the gardens was enjoyable as well, stopping to hear about the history of the design and horse races in the center. Our walk was in late afternoon as the sun was setting, so the light was beautiful falling through the trees onto the water fountains--really beautiful. When we arrived at the city overlook, we enjoyed a golden sunset as we looked at the many Roman neighborhoods. It was stunning and such a nice way to end our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others.
Very informative and interesting tour.
A must see as you visit Rome. If you enjoy art and sculptures, this is a collection beyond expectations.
Excellent guided tour through a stunning gallery---some of the most beautiful sculptures I have seen anywhere. The guide was very knowledgable and gave us some good tips for Rome as well.
This was a wonderful tour with a knowledgable, passionate guide - great value and a Rome visir MUST DO.- have a new 'hero' Bernini - what amazing sculpture !!
We so enjoyed all the artwork we viewed on this very informative tour. It was made so enjoyable by our guide, Dimetri, who was so knowledgeable about the history of this gallery and the art we were viewing. He was able to impart insight regarding each piece and interpreted the artists meaning. We were able to spend time walking around each sculpture and get an intimate look at the intricacies of each piece. Things we would have overlooked as we tried to interpret each piece on our own without his vast knowledge and attention to detail would sadly have been missed. He made each piece come to life. The gardens were lovely on this fall day. One can only imagine how beautiful it would be in spring and summer.
Wonderful, not to be missed excellent tour guide.
This tour was a highlight of our trip! The Gallery is a must see stop for lovers of fine art, especially Bernini sculptures. Our tour guide Shannon was ver knowledgeable and personable. We will definitely use Viator again.
