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!
The gallery is in a corner of the gardens, and there are no direction signs. However it was well worth the effort to find it. My wife is the artist, and lover of art, but I earned a new respect for and love of Berninis sculptures. This was down to our guide, Rebecca, whose professionalism, knowledge of, and love for her subject was amazing. We were pleased as well she remembered the names of the people in the group. She engaged the group in discussion of each subject and made it so much more interesting. We were impressed and would recommend this tour.
Great tour! Very knowledgeable guide!

This was a great tour. The two-hour time limit in the Borghese Gallery means that having a guide will ensure that you see and understand the stories behind the key paintings and sculptures which are truly spectacular.
You simply MUST take this tour! Rebecca our guide brought history to life with our 3 hr tour. She shared her knowledge and told stories that were so engaging I believe Caravaggio and Bernini would approve. The collection of art is breathtaking! She also brought us to a part of the gardens that gave us the best panoramic view of the city. I would put this on my list again the next time I get to Rome.
Our tour guide Sabrina was very knowledgeable and gave us great information about the history of the gallery and the art pieces in it. Also, Sabrina has a great personality and was very helpful in giving us advice about what and where to go in Rome. She is amazing.
Impressive gallery. They only let in a limited amount of people per time slot, giving you ample space to enjoy the gallery without feeling overcrowded. I esp liked the sculptures. Rebecca was a great guide. She explained it us the specialty and importance of various artworks in an 'easy to understand way', by framing it in the history of that time, including various funny anecdotes. Only negative point are the rest room facilities, they really will remind you of a low budget camping. Remco Frenken NL
Rebecca is the best guide we had on our Italy trip. She studied art history and gave us a history and stories on the artists. It made the art come alive. Thank you! The garden was ok. It is a longer walk but the look out point at the end was very nice.
Wonderful guide. Wonderful tour!
