British Museum tour

"This is a museum where having a guide to help you navigate and explain all that you are seeing makes a huge difference as to how much you enjoy the visit and how much you will remember from the experience. Our LivTour guide, Mary, was an excellent guide, thorough, clear and precise and a lovely person as well. We saw the most important exhibits and learned so much from Mary. Thank you LivTour for this tour and for your wonderful guide, Mary."

British museum tour

"Richard was our guide for this tour and he was amazing. Very knowledgeable and a great comunicator -- always very entertaining and never boring. The museum is one of the best in the world but there's alot to see. It's important to have a guide to help you navigate the museum, see as much as possible and learn about what you are seeing in a way that you'll remember. This tour, offered by LivTours, was the perfect way to see the British Museum. I'm sure their other museum tours, in other cities, are just as great!"
