  • Terrific gallery and this was a great way to see it. Francesa was a wonderful guide. Started to get dark early but still enjoyed a walk through the park.

  • Way overpriced. Compared our experience with friends who went on the Borghese Gallery tour for less than 1/2 the price and who had a better overall experience. Our guide was good. Our friend's guide was great!

  • Our tour guide was Francesca,she was amazing very informative with lot of knowledge!!

  • Alberto was our guide for this amazing tour. He has so much knowledge and brought the sculptures and paintings to life with his insight and charm!! He also took us for a stroll through the gardens after the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Alberto.

  • We have been to Rome a couple of times previously but had never squeezed in a visit to this wonderful gallery and its spacious gardens
    Our tour guide Francesca was wonderful, her knowledge and enthusiasm for art was extraordinary. She discussed at length many of the magnificent works including sculptures by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to any one.

  • Alberto was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide and the tour was a highlight of our trip. The Borghese Gallery is incredible. The historical context of the collection provided by Alberto was fascinating. Thank you for such a great experience.

  • Beautiful place, glad we went.

  • A bit disappointed. Too much time in the details of art in the palace for us.

  • Unfortunately, we missed this tour as we were under the impression that the tour was booked for May 10th and not May 9th. We had no chance to see it as we were leaving the morning of May 11th.

  • There were only 5 people in our group, so we had a lot of time to ask questions and cover details on the parts of the museum that we were particularly interested in. The guide was very knowledgable, and passionate about the art in the museum. While we already knew much about Bernini's sculptures and other master-pieces in the museum, the guide gave us new historical perspective and context to better understand and appreciate the museum's collection. The tour unfortunately does not allow sufficient time to cover all parts of the huge park around the museum. The gardens are amazing, so we recommend coming to the park before the tour and having a wonderful stroll.
