Tour Description

Discover more about this Semi-Private Tour of The National Gallery

Instead of wandering the National Gallery aimlessly, let our guides immerse you in the stories and history behind some of the world’s most famous artists. This 2-2.5 hour semi-private guided museum tour is limited to 8 people and will explore the museum’s best work.


You’ve heard of Van Gogh and da Vinci, but what do you really know about them? Learn about the painters behind the paintings as we browse our favorite works by masters like Botticelli, Monet, Rembrandt, and Vermeer. If none of those names mean anything to you, we’ll make sure that all changes by the end of the tour.

The National Gallery houses a collection of paintings from the 1300s onwards, so there is no shortage of choice. View da Vinci’s “The Virgin of the Rocks” before fast-forwarding to Seurat’s “Bathers at Asnières” to witness the changing styles over the centuries. During this semi-private tour, we’ll arm you with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the 2300 paintings on display at one of the world’s most visited museums.

    We had our guide to ourselves which is always an added bonus. he was a most informative young man and we had a great afternoon in his company. The selection he chose to show us was really thought provoking and great to see in such a wonderful setting. I would recommend this tour.

    Cathy is a terrific tour guide - we had two tours with her and learned a lot about the works on display. I think this is a tour that is a must when in London.
