Our guide, Becky, was very knowledgeable, personable, and professional. She offered to customize her tour to our preferences as we were a small group. I would highly recommend taking this tour, as it gave us a foundarion to further explore the more than 4 million pieces in the museum's collection. Many Thanks!!!

Angus Templeton was an great expert guide who gave us a fantastic highlight tour of the British Museum. His insights were great and his personality and enthusiasm made us right at home. Before leaving us he gave us wonderful ideas about how to tour the rest of the Museum on our own.

My guide was awesome. It was very much worth the money. I only had 1 day in London, and I wanted to see as much as possible. One could spend the entire day at the museum, and she made sure I saw the most important artifacts. I would highly recommend the private guided tour.

Cathy is a terrific tour guide - we had two tours with her -- one at the British Museum and one at the National Gallery -- and learned a lot about the exhibits as well as the other works on display. I think this is a tour that is a must when in London.

Great experience! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable! He kept it fun and exciting...He knew which items to see, explained the historical significance and could answer all our questions! Our teenager loved it too! We really valued this experience... Would recommend this to anyone going to the British Museum!

The British Museum was my favorite tour of this trip! Our Tour Guide, Becky was great - she was very knowledgeable and gave us the top objects to see, and added some i was interested in. I was so impressed with her ability to answer all our questions and have very even-sided discussions on the items that specific countries wanted back - would definitely book this tour again on our next trip - in two hours you can only see a very small part of this museum.
