    So selective which is a relief as there is just so much in every direction. Our guide Matilda was knowledgeable and engaging and also challenged us at times to get involved with certain pieces...what do we feel...what else do we see?

    Loved our private tour with Eleisha! She has an impressive resume and terrific knowledge of modern art that was engaging and relevant in today’s world. I could have toured with her all day.

    My daughter (an art history minor in NYC) and I cannot imagine having gone through the Tate Modern without Becky.She was so knowledgable and thoughtful in how she curated her tour of the Tate in a manner to engage us with the art she had carefully selected and constantly assessing how much more we would be able to take in without underestimating our interest in what she had to share with us. She let us think what we wanted to think and shared her thoughts. She dialogued with us meaningfully leaving us with a most full and satisfying experience at the Tate. I only wish we had done this tour with her prior to our self guided tour of the British Museum. We are grateful to have matched with her and been given the best experience we could ask for at the Tate.

    Matilda is extremely knowledgeable and brought the art to life providing us historical perspectives we would not have had on our own. She was terrific.

    Matilda was very knowledgeable and super nice! A small group of 6 people, we went through exhibits of a very varied selection of paintings, sculptures, photography, installations and mixed media. The museum is big and it’s absolutely a great idea to get your own guide, even if you are an Arts Major like myself. There is just so much to see and so little time. Someone like Matilda, makes the visit more concise and time efficient. The tour lasted more than 2.5 hours. Great value!!

    Sacha was fabulous. We had a great tour and would easily recommend a tour though Tate modern with Sacha to anyone.

    Museum has an amazing collection of modern Art organized helpfully. Our tour guide Ellie was a University trained art historian who was exceptional in every way. She not only enhanced our appreciation and understanding of the art, but put engaged with us in a personal and inspiring manner. Would heartily recommend her without hesitation. By the end of the tour we felt she had become a kind acquaintance.

    Wonderful Tour! We did not know much about modern art. Our guide, Becky, took us through the galleries while explaining the evolution of the modern art period. She would then show us works that exemplified what we were learning about. In addition, she asked our opinions so that it was not a mere lecture experience. We all came away with both knowledge and appreciation, As a side note, Becky is full of enthusiasm, clearly knows the material and was a lot of fun!

    What a wonderful tour! The Tate is huge, and Becky, our guide, made it doable. She took us through each gallery while providing the background of each period of modern art. She would then show us something that brought her explanations to life. We went with 2 young adult children and 2 parents and we all learned a lot without being overwhelmed. Highly recommend!
