We had a private tour around the museum with Becky who was fun, easy to talk to and knew so much about the museum. we had a 2 and a half hour tour around the museum seeing all the bits that we could in that time, having our questions answered and then after this we were left to roam on our own which was great and see any bits that we didn't get quite enough time to see. worth absolutely every penny. This was our first trip here, firstly we are so glad we did it this way and we certainly will be back. Thank you!

Anthony is very knowledgeable and knows the museum by heart. He made my 8yo experience like walking with dinosaurs and human's ancestors. He is fun and made him feel really special. Is the best tour we (but especially him) had during our stay in London.

Our tour guide informed us perfectly about the most important pieces around the museum, we were all very impressed by this tour and at the end we were given recommendations that we could still admire after the tour. Thank you for this great tour.

Luis our guide was amazing. He didn’t let us lose our interest for a minute in the 2.5 hour tour. Overall a very fulfilling experience.

Overall great focus on the key highlights. Pleasant discussion. Right no of group attendees.
