      Efficient way to learn about the great works
      Damiano was outstanding. Great knowledge, great culture, and sense of humor. Wonderful way to see and enjoy the important works within the museum. If you want to get a bit more exposure to the museum, you might plan on morning tour, lunch and going back through to hit what might have been missed outside of the major works covered by the 2 hour tour.

      Great guide at natural history museum
      I would like to express my gratitude to the excellent guide Damiano, who showed us around the Historical Museum in London. He is very friendly and paid special attention to my son. He took the time to communicate on his level and that made my son feel involved. Moreover, Damiano is very knowledgeable and shared fascinating riddles and facts about things. Thanks to him we had a wonderful experience in the museum. Damiano is an absolutely recommended guide!

      Excellent for everybody !
      Damiano is an excellent guide. He did a very interesting excursion around the National History museum. We asked Damiano to adapt the tour to our children and he managed to do that professionally - children laughed, listened to his stories carefully and recollected the tour all evening. A very friendly, positive and knowledgeable guide. I would definitely recommend him for everybody !

      Great for families
      Damiano was a fantastic tour guide, who has an exquisite knowledge of London. He made this walking tour a really enjoyable experience. I’ve lived in London for several years, but wanted to take my young cousins on an exploration - and we all learnt something new!! We had a great time, and would highly recommend!!

      Wonderful In Depth Guide
      Stefania was an amazing tour guide, she was able to distill the experience by taking us on a deep dive through some of the museum’s best pieces and explaining/showing us why they were important; the links and evolution of art, how it is reflective of the time it was made and also how it ties to art over all. There were many times I caught people around us straining to hear her presentation.

      Friendly and fun tour of the museum!
      Damiano was the perfect host to take us seamlessly through the entry gates and all throughout the natural history museum. He made us feel so welcome and made the museum feel less overwhelming by curating a lovely set of exhibits that we all enjoyed. Even my older teens were interested! i highly recommend this experience when you are in London.

      Excellent tour guide!
      Damiano is a fantastic guide. We got lucky randomly booking him in March and saved his contact information to use him again for two more tours when we returned in May. He’s easy to communicate with, reasonable pricing, excellent handle on facts and history, pleasant presentation and overall a pleasure to do have take us now on 3 different tours. Highly recommend!

    Worth every penny! Stephania was absolutely lovely. She navigated us through the busy museum, providing insight to the "must see" objects. She was great with our 3 kids (13, 10 &10), keeping them engaged throughout. The office was responsive when I contacted them with a question beforehand.

    Damiano was honestly the best guide we’ve ever had! We got stuck and almost smushed walking through the Pride parade and were nearly 30 minutes late. He was so kind about it even when we were at the wrong entrance! Then he tailored the tour to our interests (Greek ruins) and answered every question in such an informative, interesting manner for me and my 2 kids. He even found a sitting chair or places to sit when he could see my kids melting down. He answered some questions about Italy which we were later visiting since he’s from there and also recommended the fluffliest fish n chips place near the museum (Hobson’s). We wish every tour guide could be like Damiano! It made our visit much more meaningful. Do not hesitate to book!!!

    We were a family of 6 visiting the British Museum for the first time. Damiano was our tour guide. He did a fantastic job, starting from getting us a great spot in the queue (~30min before the museum opened). He showed us some highlights that we would have never seen if not on the tour. We were just in Greece so he showed us the Greek statues here in London that were not in the Acropolis Museum. The two hour tour just flew bye. We had a great time and I highly recommend it.

    Damiano was great! He maneuvered us through the Museum in a very efficient and organized manner and we left feeling like we had seen not just the "must-sees" plus some extras that were equally intriguing. He was knowledgeable and entertaining and very concerned with making sure we got the most out of our tour. Highly recommend!

    Our Guide, Damiano was excellent! We got delayed in traffic and he not only patiently waited, but extended his time for us on the tour. He was polite, affable, and extremely knowledgeable - explaining the history and stories of the historic artifacts in a manner that was clear, insightful and meaningful all with a great inviting demeanor. we moved through the galleries at a good pace providing time to see and appreciate most of what is there...

    This was absolutely the highlight of my trip! Damiano was such an amazing guide and you can tell how passionate he is about the history in this museum. He was so caring to continue to make sure I was learning & seeing everything I was interested about. I haven’t been this excited about history in so long! I laughed so often and was awestruck multiple times with facts that I learned.

    There is no other way to see the British Museum. Damiano was also great about recommending other areas for me to explore after our time concluded. It not only met my expectations, it more than exceeded them. I will be recommending his tour to anyone that comes to London.

    Grazie mille Damiano!

    Best. Tour. Guide. Ever. Booking the private tour was money well spent. We had a tight schedule and our guide Damiano was clearly experienced and well versed on all things British Museum. Our group ranged in age from 25 to 60 and he engaged with all of us. His language skills were seasoned which made the tour that more enjoyable. Most of all, he was genuine. It was a delightfully, entertaining, time well spent morning.

    Damiano was superb as a tour guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. The tour was two hours, hitting some of the highlights of this vast museum, and was perfect for getting a taste of the galleries. Afterwards you can extend your visit on your own as long as you like. He will also tailor the tour to any special interests in your group. All considered, this was a great tour at a great price. Highly recommended!

    Damiano was extremely knowledgeable and highly charismatic. He was willing to customize the morning to our interests. We stayed in the museum after our tour and it was a far less exciting experience without him. Highly recommend this tour, and it came at a fraction of the price of some of the competition.

    Damiano was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. He was great about taking us to see the most important things (e.g. the Elgin marbles) and telling us their stories.

    It seemed short, because there’s so much to see, so clearly we didn’t see everything. We had the feeling that we could take the same tour several times with Damiano, and we’d see different things each time. He would not have run out of things to tell us.

    Expensive, but recommended.
