Overview
Dig deeper into ancient history on a guided group tour of the British Museum. The world-renowned institution can be overwhelming to navigate on your own. But with your dynamic guide leading the way to the Rosetta Stone, Parthenon sculptures, and Holy Thorn Reliquary, you’re able to sit back and enjoy the historical ride. Along the way, enjoy immersive commentary that goes beyond guidebook for an insider’s perspective.

A very enjoyable and informative way to see the museum. You learn about parts of the history of the world that you didn’t even know existed. I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was very knowledgeable. Just wished we moved a little faster to cover more ground. We probably covered less than 10% of the museum. I'm impressed by his history knowledge though.
