London: Highlights of the British Museum Guided Tour

Enjoy a stress-free visit to one of the most famous museums in the world on a small group tour of London’s British Museum.

Located just steps from Russell Square, the treasure chest of objects on display spans the continents and centuries of human civilization to tell the story of mankind from the beginning of time. With over 8 million pieces spanning 2 million years, it can be a daunting task to navigate on your own. This specially crafted guided tour takes you to the highlights.

Your guide will skillfully weave you through the 70 galleries to marvel at Athenian marbles, Egyptian mummies, and Anglo Saxon treasures. Discover the original Rosetta Stone, and learn how Egyptian hieroglyphs were deciphered. Admire the enormous Parthenon Frieze, one of the most important relics of classical Greece.

In the Egyptian Rooms, your guide will explain the importance of death and the afterlife in Ancient Egypt. Then, move on to see artifacts from Anglo Saxon culture, such as the relics found at the burial sites of Sutton Hoo.

Trudi was an excellent and knowlegable guide to the unique exhibits.
The well organised administration was followed by an excellent guide of the world leading exhibits led by a knowledgeable and informative guide ( Trudi). Her thoughtful presentation and professional approach provided us with a memorable visit and introduction to a range of civilisations and artefacts. Thank you.

My guide was already at meeting point before the allotted time. Throughout the tour she was very helpful, informative and was considerate of those in the group who were not as quick as the rest of us. Altogether an extremely good experience and one I would not hesitate to repeat.

Ich war der einzige, der zum vereinbarten Zeitpunkt da war und kam dann in den Genuss einer Einzelführung. Alles in englischer Sprache war mir allerdings etwas anstrengen. Anschließend habe ich dann mein 'Pausenbrot' verzehrt, mir einen Audio Guide in Deutsch ausgeliehen und noch einmal eine Fotorunde gedreht. God save the Queen!

Die Führung mit Trudi war super interessant. Man möchte gern mit ihr durch das ganze Museum gehen. Leider reicht dafür die Zeit nicht. Man merkt, wie sie als Dr. der Geschichte von allem was sie uns erzählt hat, selbst total begeistert ist.

Hat sich wirklich gelohnt
Das British Museum ist ja bekannlich rießig groß mit unzähligen Exponaten und es sind wirklich Menschenmassen unterwegs - die Führung lotst einen gut durch alle Epochen an Hand von wesentlichen Kunstobjekten. Alles wunderbar.

We would not have been able to navigate the massive museum alone.
Great tour. Enjoyed Augusta's tour and unsure. She engaged the small group and helped us efficiently navigate and understand the artifacts. This included keeping three teens engaged after long day. Only suggestion is to see more of museum with a bit less discussion at each of sites. Thanks again

Our guide was wonderful and made the visit so much more valuable!
It was easy to find the red phone box at the corner of the square. In fact I stopped into the Nero across the street for a sandwich first. The guide chatted amiably with me while we waited for the others. She was a very interesting person and when only two others showed up we were able to have a terrific tour. Her selection of artefacts gave us an introduction to objects and history which I otherwise would have passed over on my own. As a result of the tour I plan to go back whenever I am in London, and may well book another tour as each guide seems to have their own preferences. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting London or even living there. I was astonished at how many people in London don't bother to go to the British Museum when it has so much to offer!

kompetent, effektiv, informativ auch auch für junge Erwachsene.
was mir besonders gefallen hat, ist die Art und Weise wie Augusta auf die Herkunft der Teilnehmer einging und die Führung auch für unsere 17 und 18 Jahre alten Enkel interessant gestaltete. Für uns sechs war es wirklich ein Erlebnis.

good view of the high spots, efficient use of time
let's face it - you can't legitimately hit the British Museum for only two hours. But if that's your schedule, this was a straightforward brisk guide to the high points, and probably got us to the places we'd want to start with faster than if we wandered around the museum on our own.

schön, die Dinge erklärt zu bekommen
Haben die Führung mit unseren 3 Kindern (9, 12, 14) gemacht. Marc Zakian hat den Rundgang kurzweilig und interessant gestaltet und mit Humor gewürzt. Sein Englisch war für uns gut verständlich, auch die Kinder haben viele Informationen mitbekommen. An manchen Exponaten wären wir wohl achtlos vorbeigegangen. -Schön nun über ihre besondere Geschichte bescheid zu wissen! Die Führung ist unbedingt zu empfehlen.
