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.

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.

Rosa Maria (my guide) was amazing. I highly recommend this tour! Our time together went so fast. She was so knowledgeable and she catered the tour to my interests. While we saw popular items, she showed me things I would have missed in the museum. The Soane museum was so fascinating. We could have easily spent 5 hours on the tour!
