British Museum with a private guide

I booked this tour for my grandson who is 13+ years old and who is particularly interested with ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. Our guide Natalie was already waiting for us at the agreed meeting point when we turned up at 13h40 for 14h00. She navigated us through the various sections of the British museum - Easter Islands, Aztec and Mayan art, Assyrian, Egyptian, Greek, ancient British, Roman - providing each time (in both English and French - she is of French origin and my grandson is perfectly bilingual) a lot of very interesting information on the sections visited. We truly enjoyed this visit and I would not hesitate to recommend it to other customers. As always, the museum was full of visitors, but Natalie guided us with great ease and speed through the various sections, which was highly helpful.

Melissa was wonderful, providing an interesting & entertaining tour!

We had our 9 year old and 15 year old daughters on the tour with us. Melissa did a great job answering all their questions and making the tour interesting to both of them, while at the same time making sure that the adults also were engaged and learned a lot. I would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in truly appreciating all the unique items on display at the British Museum.

Good -not specific for kids

Unfortunately the tour started 15/20mins late as the meeting point given to us and to guide were different, not her fault. Unfortunately no apology from the head office!! Tour covered a lot which was made possible by the small size. Tour itself started slow not really oriented for children but then tour guide got into the flow and even kindly customised a few elements based on our daughters interests.
