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
The guide, Lindy, knew so much about the paintings, their origin, points of specific interest in the paintings and sculptures. I really learned a lot from her. She was also very antimated

great guideReviewed by: Phyllis Q, August 2013
What a wonderful surprise of a tour! I had booked the tour just to see the beautiful gardens and fully enjoyed the time spent in the Borghese gallery. Bernini's works are just breathtaking in person and all of the artwork is so awe inspiring. I will book this tour again to enjoin it with family!Reviewed by: Katelyn H, August 2013
Our guide Rebecca was very well informed. She captured everyone's attention and answered all our questions with efficiency and professionalism. Caravagio's work were out of this world, the details of his sculptures were breathtaking. Time was quite limited to enjoy the pieces but this is a highly recommended /must see tour.Reviewed by: MARIA P, August 2013
So Fabulous!! getting the behind the scenes stories made my visit to the Borghese Galleria an amazing experience! Looking at Fine Art without the background and the stories surrounding them, you might as well look at them in a book. Our tour guide was wonderful....Reviewed by: Sandra W, July 2013
This was an exceptional tour with an exceptional guide. Violet was friendly and very knowledgable. She took the time to talk with us throughout the tour and did not rush us. She left us with practical advice and gave us information on other tours of interest. All in all this was a great tour and a great value.Reviewed by: Steven B, July 2013
Great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and emotionally engaged with the subject matter. Good sense of humor and very patient with our group. Shame on me for not remembering her name! I recommend this tour and Viator for any tour. We have used Viator on more than one occasion. All great experiences!Reviewed by: JAMES S C, July 2013
Fabulous! Superb, knowledgeable guide who made me feel so much better informed about Caravaggio and Bernini.
