Our guide was Violet and she was wonderful. Her depth and breath of knowledge is excellent as is her passion to transmit her knowledge to all of us. She is the best.Reviewed by: John d, September 2013

We loved our tour of the Borghese gallery. It was a highlight of our time in Rome. It has wonderful art, and is a manageable size - much less overwhelming than the Vatican museums which allows you to really enjoy the art. Our guide, Violet, was wonderful. Very knowledgable, informative and entertaining, and with a real passion for the art which added to the experience. Our children aged 13 and 11 also loved this tour. We went on our first day in Rome, which worked well as we were able to spot paintings and sculptures by our favorite
artists in the churches etc during the rest of our time in Rome and Italy.
This was an amazing experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and full of anecdotes of history and humorous stories. The museum was so beautiful, but would not have been so enjoyable without the commentary of our guide. She enhanced the experience, one would not have been able to read all she imparted in the few hours we were together. Thanks. All our many Viator Tours in Rome were so well done.Reviewed by: Margaret H, August 2013

Our guide, Lindy, was very knowledgeable about the paintings, the customs at the time, what the gallery was used for. She also pointed out specific details in the paintings which helped us understand what the artist was trying to portray. We also learned historic details which I thought were fascinating.
The tour was very well organized and the process of seeing the Gallery and Gardens was a wonderful experience.
I would definitely take the tour again and anyone I know traveling to Rome would get the highest recommendations from me! Thank you for such a wonderful experience.Reviewed by: Carol R, August 2013
