Great tour, the Borghese Gallery is definitely one of the best places to visit during your stay in Rome. Our guide (I think her name was Alessandra) was very professional in managing the group and navigating the gallery to avoid big crowds. She was very engaging and shared a lot of interesting information about both the artworks and their creators as well as the museum building itself. She was also on time so the tour started when it was supposed to (not the case with the other two tours I was on!). The audio was also very clear and she spoke good English.

Our tour guide is wonderful! She not only covered all the major sculptures and paintings in the museum but also did so with wonderful detail - one can tell that she had training in art history and can pinpoint exactly why a sculpture or a painting is famous and how to appreciate it. Definitely worth it!

Initially we had doubts whether this was worth it or not (my wife and I), because we did the Uffizi in Florence as well as a lot of historical tours in Italy overall. Eventually we ended up going, and I can assure you it's a must. This place has lot of work by Bernini and Caravaggio which to me made it worth visiting. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable (Ettore). After your visit spare some time for the park and they rent bikes over there.
