The gallery was amazing and our guide, Seri, made it even more interesting.

I booked this tour for my birthday and what a gift it was! Our guide was so passionate about the art she shared with us as well as being very knowledgeable. It was a great way to see the main art works, especially when you get limited time in this beautiful gallery.

Our guide, Michael, could not have been more fabulous. His passion and knowledge about the art was obvious. He had great stories about the art work's origin and meaning. It was like having a semester of art history in 2 hours! We would not have had the same appreciation for the art without his knowledge.

Our tour of the Borghese Gallery was one of the best activities we did in Rome! Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about her craft. The tour exceeded my expectations and I will recommend it to any friends and family visiting Rome.
