It was a great tour. Our guide - Lindy- was excellent, bringing great energy and enthusiasm to complement her knowledge of the art. She focused on the true highlights in the collection, a very good idea given the strict time limits and the extent of the displays. Can recommend this guide and this tour without hesitation.Reviewed by: Niven B, October 2013
Gia was great! Very knowledgeable and great at avoiding the bigger crowds and groups. She told lots of interesting stories. I could have stayed all day!Reviewed by: Betsy P, October 2013
In my opinion 1 of the top 3 things to see in Rome. The other 2: Ostea Antica and the Jewish Qtr. The Villa Borghese was CLEAN, adequately maintained, the artwork fabulous, and the guide extremely knowledgeable about the subject. It was worth my time and money.Reviewed by: Nancy G, October 2013
This tour was by far the highlight of Rome for me, as the guide, Violet, was very knowledgable and passionate about the subject. Despite my feet being sore from walking day in and day out on my European excursion, I wanted to stay and listen for hours and hours more. I could do another tour with Violet, any day. She was very accommodating and inclusive to all members of the tour.Reviewed by: MB, October 2013
This was a great tour made thoroughly enjoyable by our guide Rebecca. She was extremely
Knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the works of art as well as the history of the museum and the Borghese family. Rebecca brought the works of art to life in an way that was understandable to those of us who are not well versed on art history. I would highly recommend a guided tour of the Borghese gallery and try to get Rebecca if you can.
Tremendously enjoyed the tour. Very well versed guide, sophisticated, patient and discerning as to the highlights of the gallery. Very nice albeit somewhat slow paced walk of the gardens.
A gem, don't miss it! Like all of the other experiences with Dark Rome-Viator, our guide was excellent, personable and helpful!Reviewed by: Barbara F, October 2013
This was my absolute favourite tour! Lindy was a fantastic and enthusiastic guide and very knowledgeable. I just wish we had more time!Reviewed by: Megan S, October 2013
Our tour of the Villa Gallery was fabulous due, in large part, to our tour guide, Lucas. His deep knowledge and passion for the the paintings and sculptures made them truly 'come alive' for us. Great job, Lucas! The Villa grounds were beautiful...such a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The Smiths, Huntsville, ALReviewed by: Nancy S, October 2013
This tour was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on both the art as well as the history of the Borghese family. The Bernini sculptures at this gallery are well worth the visit.Reviewed by: Bob, USA, October 2013
