Our private tour guide Leigh was simply FANTASTIC!!! She was a wealth of knowledge and amazing with our little ones, who ADORE everything dinosaurs, animals, and nature. She was flexible, accommodating, and very entertaining. She engaged with the kids, shared fun facts, and played trivial with our curious little learners. I would 100% recommended this private tour, and next time we visit we will definitely be requesting Leigh again! Thank you for making our quick day-trip a memorable one!!!

Excellent guide through a museum packed with exhibits—it would be so easy to wander though here and not understand what you are seeing. Best tour of the three we booked that weekend.
