Begin your tour by learning about the master painters whose names fill the halls of the National Gallery.

Craig was absolutely fabulous. We saw all of the highlights. He has a great sense of humor and there was not one question (we had many) that he could not answer! I would use Craig again in a heartbeat. It was just my wife and me on the tour so that made it easy. Still, very affordable even for 2. Thanks

Tony our guide was fantastic and we would recommend him. He is knowledgeable, entertaining, organised and professional. The British Museum itself is a beautiful building and the exhibits were impressive and beautifully displayed. A great experience to enjoy and learn.

I am glad we booked this tour - made our visit so much more meaningful - the museum is HUGE. We only had 4 people on our tour - which was great too.

It was a very interesting experience. I recommend this to.anyone who wants to learn things and facts and not just looking around.

We used Dani to help us with the British Museum. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Truly excellent experience!!!!
