Discover more about this tour

The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is a world-class museum housing an incredible timeline of Western Art from the old masters of the Renaissance to the quintessential personalities of the 20th Century. Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Picasso, and Rothko are just a handful of artist on view (as well as Vigee le Brun, Cassatt, and O’Keeffe). This 2.5 hour private guided museum tour welcomes you to see the world’s most iconic artists inside two extraordinary buildings.


Our engaging guides will take your own private excursion through the changes of history as told by magnificent works of art – money, power, war, hope, and triumph. From the intimacy of a da Vinci portrait to sweep of a Monet to the bold strokes of a Kandinsky, you will be dazzled by the vast holdings and the stories that accompany them. You’ll delight over familiar names and hidden gems while our passionate guides navigate you through notable highlights of technique and artwork from over the past seven centuries.

    Aaron was absolutely wonderful with us in this tour about the National Gallery. Very knowledgeable guy and nice to be with. He showed us unusual stuff inside of the Gallery and we’ve learned a lot . This is a very good way to start in Washington.

    Great experience. I called the evening before to see if it was possible to reschedule to a later time. They were able to accommodate us, texted info back, and generally took care of everything. Our guide, George, was friendly, really responded to our interests, did a great job explaining some interesting antidotes and had an engaging personality.
