Don't miss this tour! It is fantastic and you don't have to be an art historian to enjoy it either. Our guide Rebecca was the best! She lives and breathes the art and Roman lifestyle and this comes out in her tour. Great tour of the gallery and gardens!

Excellent value. Knowledgeable tour leader demonstrated a passion for what she was showing us and made us feel we had sampled the best in the museum. Skipping the lines and in fact being assured of a tour at the time we wanted was important. Tickets were not available at the museum for several days following our tour.

This was a wonderful Gallery and our guide was great, very passionate about the work. Hearing the background of the artists and the work was so inspiring. We had a person in our group who knew little about art and he learned so much. Our guide kept us away from other tours so we could always hear her. The skip-the-line was great. The only disappointment was there was not as much gardens as I had anticipated.

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.
