Greater London, United Kingdom

Tate Britain, where your tour starts, contains the main collection of British Art from the 16c. to the present day. It is a splendid 19c. home for the British collection. Updated recently it has all modern facilities and is endowed with some beautiful space for large sculpture in the Duveen Galleries. In the Clore Galleries you will find a continuous but frequently changing display of paintings by Turner, from the bequest he made to the Nation of over 300 works. They are a must for all lovers of this great artist.

Stop At: Tate Modern, 53 Bankside, London SE1 9TG England

A boat trip down the Thames links the two Tates and provides a wonderful panorama of London from the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben to St. Paul's and the City of London. You alight on the South Bank for the Tate Modern, the famous conversion of the Bankside Power Station (1957-60) which took place during the 1990's to house the 20 C. collection of Modern and Contemporary Art. Apart from the exciting modern collection of paintings, sculptures, and objects, it enjoys from the top floor splendid views over the Thames towards St. Paul's, to which it has been linked by the Millennium pedestrian bridge by Norman Foster. It also contains an imposing collection of modern European masterpieces from the beginning of the 20 C with great works by the Italian futurists like Boccioni or metaphysical painters like De Chirico, French masterpieces in sculpture and paintings like Degas' Dancers, Matisse, Picasso and an impressive collection of American Abstract Expressionists.

This in-depth private tour is hosted by a professional guide specializing in art history.

Marguerite was an excellent guide. I felt both Tate's were inferior to the National Gallery and next time will just go there. The Turner's were superb.

Our guide Ana María was fine. Was on time. Was very friendly and professional. But (but) we couldn't help to leave with the feeling that all she knew about the Tate Galleries was strictly the 12 or 15 pieces she showed us in both Galleries. She just basically told us literally what it was already written in the ID stuck on the wall next to every piece of art. Every time I asked about some other piece or some other space of the Galleries, she would answer (that, I don't know about). At least she was honest :)...but you would definitely expect more from a 4 hour private $550 tour. My recommendation, hire some other tour (there are plenty in Viator).

Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable and gave us much insight into the paintings, artists and events occurring in history at the time of the paintings. He also gave us recommendations to find more info on our favorite artists. I highly recommend this tour and Paul. It was fun, educational and very thorough.

Mark Bishop was the perfect guide. Five and a half stars. His deep personal art experience shines through.

I paid a lot of money for this tour. I expected a minimum of 2 hours at easy museum not including transporting from one to another. It was marketed as all day. But it was only 3 hours in total.
