      Frederico our guide was a terrific story teller. He moved us through the museum pieces at a very good pace. The gallery only allows visits to last 2 hours so we were unable to see everything but the info provided was well worth it. The Bernini sculptures are breathtaking and rare a must see.

      Highly enjoyable and informative tour - was somewhat dubious about paying so much for this activity but was very pleased. The museum is incredible and our guide was so knowledgeable, and clearly loved the building and artworks/ sculptures and history. My only complaint was that we ran out of time as the museum entry is timed. I would've liked to spend the entire day looking at everything.

      Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable. My husband and I do not know much about art and we appreciated all he shared with us. The gallery is gorgeous and he helped us through. The group was small enough that we could have asked questions if needed. I would book this tour again.
