Alex was the worlds best tour guide! He was fantastic! We had a ten year old and a thirteen year old and two adults. We all loved history but thought that we really lacked any l relevant knowledge, especially for the children. Alex selected items as we went round the museum that were the best fit for us. His passion REALLY enthused us! He was patient, thoughtful and efficient. We would like to go on more tours with Alex. If you want to visit The British Museum and you have a group like ours, you must do this small group tour, otherwise it could be overwhelming.I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
Great guide Alexander Mariotti
we very much enjoyed our small-group tour we were the only two in the group, our guide Becky asked us our main interest, as this is a huge museum, and adapted the tour likewise also showing us the other most interesting or controversial pieces of the museum. the tour also took us to a few lesser known civilizations and sparked our interest in those . Manny thanks to Becky for making our history tour a succes
