Overview

With a collection of at least 8,000,000 objects, and 80,000 on public display, you could spend weeks exploring the British Museum—and still not see it all. Skip the long lines and follow your guide on a whistle-stop tour of the museum’s key highlights: relics of ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, ancient Rome, and more. After your tour, explore independently for as long as you like.
  • Enjoy fast-track entry to the British Museum, established in 1753
  • Discover highlights of the museum’s vast collection with a guide
  • See artifacts from Egyptian mummies to the Parthenon sculptures
  • Admire the Great Court’s glass roof, an architectural feat in its own right

I booked this a week or two before the tour date. A few days before the event date, I got a call from somewhere abroad, to say the event was full and that they would refund me. I then started getting confirmation of payment emails through and now I'm asked to post a review. Well I dont know how the tour went because I was told I couldn't go on it. shame because i was looking forward to it.

My daughter and I enjoyed being the only ones on the tour. Alaria was the guide. She was very personable, passionate. The tour was 2 hours. Could have done more!

The guide didn’t bother to show up, and the number for the tour guide was routed through a French telephone number which DIDN'T WORK. Waited and waited and waited and the guide never showed. Totally conned. Can’t get through to get my money back. CRIMINALS! STAY CLEAR!!

Very good tour. Nattasha did a splendid and quite different guided tour going through most of the cultures exhibited at the museum showing us more philosophical view on the different cultures and what is the same throughout. Showing small things and signs that remains throughout time and culture.

Our guide did an admirable job of taking us to the most important exhibits in a very complex museum. There is a lot of walking and stairs but it was well worth it. Highly recommend this tour.

Guide did not show up. We called the number listed for the tour company three times. Each call was disconnected. We texted and those went unanswered. There was no way to contact the guide. Extremely disappointing experience. Will not use VIATOR again.
