We highly recommend this tour of the Borghese Museum and this company. Luca made the tour one of the highlights of our trip. We have been to many museums around the world and this museum and the time with Luca was unique. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about each piece that he described to us. After the tour he even gave us some new locations to check out in the area. Thank you Luca!

Well done with an excellent guide for small group. Would highly recommend. Only concern was the GYG coordinator didn't have our operator listed, and we started to worry if our guide would appear. Thankfully, he did.

despite our missed appointment, we were lucky to have a super nice and very professional guide Mariaza. Everything went well with the charm and the view of the villa of Borghese.

You really get to see the most important in the city during this trip! The guide was really nice and gave us extra time to give us the best experience of the city!

Robert was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and engaging throughout the tour.
