Well informed and enthusiastic guide. Enjoyable tour.Reviewed by: John S, May 2013
This is a must see. I'm glad I booked ahead becuz tickets were all sold out!! Georgia our tour guide very very knowledgeable and added great interest to the tour. Only problem was finding the gallery. It's in the park and not on a Main Street. Wonderful!!!Reviewed by: Terry, April 2013
We had Rebekah as our guide, she was wonderful, so passionate and knowledgable, it was the quickest 2 hours ever. We found ourselves spellbound whilst listening to her, it was marvellous!Reviewed by: A C B, April 2013
This was a delightful tour, led by Rebecca, who was very enthusiastic and well-informed guide.
The museum is quite large, and has more art than can be fully absorbed in the two hours that the museum allots. It seems to me that Rebecca had a choice to either highlight and add depth to selected objects, or give a "drive-by" tour of most or all of the museum.
Rebecca's choice was to highlight a limited portion of the museum, which was the correct choice in our opinion, and of all but one member of the tour. She was very well-informed and enthusiastic, adding history to the works of art, making the tour first-rate. The tour of the garden was also very enjoyable.
The one member of the tour who would have preferred a different approach chose to chastise Rebecca in front of the rest of us, which we all considered inappropriate. Rebecca, however, handled the criticism professionally and gracefully.
We highly recommend this tour of the Borghese Gallery.
My husband and I had an amazing time at this gallery with our expert tour guide. You only have a limited time in the gallery as you well know by now if you have done your research. Just wish we could know a little more about the other works of art. Our guide only mentioned a few pieces in each room but there were so many other works I would have liked to have known about. I think that the problem was with the gallery and not the guide. BTW it is pronounced BOR-GAY-ZEE gallery if your are trying to ask for directions as the park is huge!!! Allow plenty of time to find the place.Reviewed by: Jennifer R, April 2013
