Wonderful 2+ hour tour of the National Gallery, for a parent and teen. Becky was engaging, knowledgeable on the art and provided a historical perspective. We saw paintings of different eras, and regions. Thanks again!

Our tour started at the British Museum and continued on to the National Gallery of London. Becky met us right where she said she would be. This was my third visit to the British Museum but it was by far the best because Becky knew so much history. She led us to different galleries and wove together so many interesting details. We then walked to the National Gallery, stopping for lunch (at our expense) at a lovely lunchroom on the way. Becky is an Art History major and she knew so much, not only of the art collection and artists, but also the history of the building and the gallery itself. We really enjoyed the day and would recommend this to anyone interested in a personal tour of these great facilities.

Luis was an outstanding guide. The British Museum and National Gallery were both incredible, but it wouldn't have been the same without Luis taking us to the best parts of each and giving us in-depth background on what we were seeing. He was very friendly, and overall our experience was top-notch.

Matilda provided an extremely informative tour. She was pleasant friendly and her breadth of knowledge regarding various paintings was more than impressive. We would go out of our way to book a tour with her again. It was that good.

Our family of four has been touring Paris & London for the past two weeks…and Ellie is by far the best guide we’ve had. While one could spend days in the British Museum, Ellie focused on what she felt were the most interesting and important exhibits, providing a complete, well received overview of each. She’s thoughtful, full of facts (interesting and fun), knows her history, happy to answer questions, is easy to listen to, et all. Thank you Ellie for holding the interest of our teen age children for the full 2.5+ hrs. It takes someone special to do that!
