A terrific day with a great tour guide! Such a big museum but one that needed to have someone as knowledgeable as our guide to weave through the exhibits to focus on what's important to our family!

La visita estuvo bien, recorrimos lo principal del museo. La guia no fue de lo mejor y sobretodo con los niños. Hemos tenido experiencias mucho mejores y mas con lo que es el British Museum.

Our guide was most knowledgeable on all the arttifacts and exhibits we reviewed in the museum. He answered virtually every question we posed in depth. We did take issue with an 18 minute delay when he showed up late with a brusk , sorry for the delay and we were off. He also literally left us behind several times because our senior bodies could not keep up the pace. Overall, we had a great time, marred only by the Incidents cited .

This place is AWESOME. How else to describe the amazing privilege to stand next to human artifacts cutting stones used on an axe or the like that date back 400,000 that's right, four hundred thousand years before Christ. Or to be able to take a selfie next to a bust of Julius Ceasar! The antiquities portion of this museum is incomparable. Full disclosure: Betty did not enjoy TBM as much as Jim.

Excellent guide for the British Museum. Rosa took extra time in explaining the history to our12 year old. She was very patient and knowledgeable!! We all learned a great deal!

Good tour. Guide was organized and knowledgeable. Would have given 5 stars, however he seemed a little detached. I have had other guides who we're much more personable.

Tour seems pricey, especially after you meet your diminutive guide with her heavy accent, but she is a treasure. She quickly found out what the three of us were interested in, and made sure we saw it, told us stories about it, AND ensured we saw the prize of the museum. Wonderful experience.

This was everything we could have hoped for. The guide was outstanding allowing us to see and understand things we might not have otherwise. Well worth the price.
