    I traveled to Scotland and London with my 11 year old grandson. The British Museum was at the top of his list to see. I discovered quite late that private tours were options. However, when I went to book it there were no private tours available. I contacted customer service to see if they could find something and they did. Even though I thought the price was highly inflated, this was for my grandson so, I booked it. We were met by a wonderful young lady named, Alexandra. She could not have been more lovely in sharing her excitement about the museum. The first part was wonderful with the Parthenon and the history there. But from there it was in areas that really didn't interest him. We had told her he does Civil war re-enactments and so it would have been better to have focused on the British history or even American history. She also tried to engage him in activities which were for a much longer child. Also, being at the British Museum it would have been a more enjoyable experience to have a guide with a British accent. I also don't know why I was under the impression that we would have the opportunities to go into areas that maybe weren't open to the public. I realize it was a Saturday in July but it was extremely crowded which made it difficult at times to get around the crowds and see the displays. I have used Viator before so that's why I used them again. But this tour was WAY overpriced for what the website showed for other private tours and most definitely not worth what I paid. :(

    Tim was a great guide. We booked the private tour for the boys. What I loved was that he explained the building and what the meaning of the pictures carved into the building. He was informative and took note of the boys were getting tired. He suggested we go and see the gardens which was a good choice since the museum was getting crowded

    Our guide Tim was excellent-he was incredibly informative and was great with the kids age 6-15 engaging them and sharing some little known facts that really impressed them. He was the very best guide you could have and we are grateful for the time we spent with him

    We had a great experience with our guide Lucy. I was with my 4 daughters who range in ages from 8-22 and we all found our experience exceptional. I had my concerns initially taking my 8yo who is a very active outdoorsy kid to a museum, but she loved it!

    Ainura was wonderful. She really helped bring the museum to life for our kids and did an expert job guiding us through the crowds. Would definitely recommend.

    Chris gave an excellent guided tour of the British museum. Explanations and selection of artifacts were perfectly tailored for children.

    The British Museum is incredible, and incredibly large. Having a private guide that knew our interests and knew how to navigate the museum was worth it! Our guide Lucy was so knowledgeable, and made sure to incorporate facts she thought our daughter would find fascinating.

    Catherine is an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and charismatic with children. We had a fantastic tour and our daughters (10 & 12 years old) were constantly intrigued by her stories on the exhibits we saw. Thank you Catherine!!!!

    Lucy was an incredible tour guide!! We had her on consecutive days for the Tower of London and the British Museum. She was wonderful with our three young kids (9 and 7 yos; boy and girls) and had great stories to share that kept them engaged and informed. They spent the dinners both nights recounting the stories and trying to solve the mysteries we learned about earlier in the day. These tours were a great way for all of us to really appreciate what we were viewing by understanding the context surrounding the artifacts. Highly recommend!!
