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.
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.
Excellent guide. Informative. Helpful. Easily navigated the crowds to make our tour feel more private.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgable and friendly guide. Highly recommended
The Gallery was interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The only downside was the walking tour of the gardens was in the rain.
I loved this tour and our guide was beyond knowledgeable on both the Gallery and the Gardens which I completely appreciated. He didn't talk over our heads and spoke great English and even spoke in other languages for some of the folks in the group that didn't speak English. It was like going to a new place with a good friend to show you around!
Our favorite tour of our whole trip to Italy by far - McKayla made the tour engaging, relatable and entertaining.
Amazing guide who captivated everyone in the group with her passion for the art and the work of the artist.
John's love for art is real and he shows it. Loved the way he conveyed the history of the Borghese Gallery with facts and a liitle bit of humor. Borghese Gallery is truly one of the most beautiful museums in Rome. The tour is highly recommended.
The Borghese Gallery was amazing, and our tour guide was extremely well versed in the history of everything. She was an excellent tour guide, and I would highly recommend this tour.
Great tour. Must book ahead of time. The museum does 2-hour windows to see the museum and limits the number of people at a time. The groups do a dance moving from room to room to see everything. Our guide was knowledgeable about all of the artwork and sculptures giving insight into the artists.
Candy to the eyes
be there on time
they let people there in and out every 2 hours
too crowded but worth seeing!!!
A MUST when in Rome!!!
What a fantastic tour. The gallery was breathtaking and the artwork unparalleled. I highly recommend taking the tour because there is so much to see that without the expertise of a guide you will surely miss many of the important works. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and witty. Will take the tour again next time I am in Rome because the artwork and sculptures are that magnificent!
Excellent, off the beaten track tour! Tour guide was excellent, offering great insights on art. The walk through the gardens was actually wonderful as well.
Ours was a private tour with an amazing historian named Richard. He seems to know everything about the Borghese Gallery as well as putting in the context of history. Best tour of the trip!
Sabrina was an excellent tour guide: patient, thorough, and knowledgeable. She enthusiastically provided us with a huge amount of information throughout the tour of the gallery, and kept us in line for the tight schedule. The walk through the gardens was more relaxed, but she still could share details about the Borghese family history and the park's many features. Thank you, Sabrina!

This tour was provided by City Wonders. It was very well coordinated. Our tour guide, Rebecca, really made this a five star experience. Rebecca was extremely enthusiastic about the Gallery, very knowledgeable, and an outstanding communicator. She really contributed immensely to my appreciation of the Gallery and my enjoyment of the tour. Well done, Rebecca and City Wonders! The Borghese Gallery is incredibly beautiful,and should be considered a must-see while in Rome. The gardens are immense, and we only got to see a fraction of it, but they are very beautiful. The tour ends at the Pincio Terrace, which is a great place to get sunset pictures of the Piazza del Popolo, and St. Peter's Basilica.
Fabulous! Our English speaking guide was very knowledgable, passionate, and easy to understand. He even suggested a few restaurants that was everything he said they were!
Rebecca was a true joy to have as a guide. Her love for and knowledge of this gallery and Rome itself was truly a pleasure. An excellent gallery with an amazing collection. I had no idea what I was about to see and learn and experience!!! Worth every penny!!!
