Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery and Gardens Walking Tour
Reviewed by: Albert M, June 2014
Our guide (Masimo) was the best one of our trip. He was knowledgeable, and his English was perfect. He informed us of historical information about the artwork and he pointed out the subtle things on each piece that made them special. I usually do not like museums, but I loved this tour. I loved this museum and I loved the ability of our guide to help us understand each piece of artwork.

It was just what I had hoped for. Lots of stories about Caravaggio and other great masters. Our guide was funny, friendly and knowledgeable, and the museum is world class stunning. Thank you!!!

A beautiful spot. Rebecca was charming and knowledgeable, giving a Roman history lesson while walking through the gardens. Art history is her passion and she is the perfect tour guide for the gallery. A must do while in Rome. Much smaller crowds too. Don't miss it!

Guide was knowledgeable and humorous. Great explanation for novices like us. We skipped the park part of the tour but thoroughly enjoyed the museum part. Expensive but worth it.

The Borghese tour was the highlight of our time in Rome and a wonderful way to spend our last afternoon before returning home to Canada. Our guide, Rebecca Wright, was exceptional. Rebecca was well informed and really brought the paintings and sculptures to life for me. I don't have a lot of experience with interpreting art and Rebecca pointed out many nuances that I would likely have missed. As a result, I am inspired to read much more about some of the artists and have already ordered books on Caravaggio and Bernini! Rebecca also provided additional, interesting information about modern and ancient Rome as we walked through the gardens. I'd recommend any Rome tour led by Rebecca.
