Just the right amount of time. Guide very knowledgeable. Beautiful collection of art and sculptures.

We settled on the tour because it was the only way to get tickets for the day we wanted to see the Borghese -- otherwise, we would have just gotten the tickets directly. I'm glad it worked out this way because going through the galleria with the guide really enhanced the experience and made sure we understood the history of the Bernini/Borghese patronage. Our guide Anna was friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly composed she was harassed multiple times by a member of the staff but kept her cool and stayed professional and engaged with us the whole time. After the tour, she led us on a walk through the grounds and then up to a wonderful lookout at the Pincio Terrace which was also a perfect departure point for everyone from the group to their various directions.

For being a lattice crowd in front it was a little more disorganised than our Vatican tour was. This is my second two of The Galleria Borghese for much shorter than my last one. Being only 2 hours lying you only get to see the masterpieces. If you want to see the other pieces in more detail you will need to schedule a longer tour. For us is to our two hour tour was just fine as we had just done a 4 hour tour of the Vatican. The guide was knowledgeable in Nice. If you just want an overview and to see the masterpieces this tour is a good one.

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
