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.

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.

Onze gids was zeer oordeelkundig , vriendelijk en vlot ter taal
British Museum : leuk om met een gids te bezoeken . Onze gids heeft het zeer goed gedaan voor een zeer beperkte groep . Van de 14 verwachte personen waren er maar .......4 opgedaagd zodat de hetgeen de gids te vertellen had nog beter uit de verf kwam. Goede ervaring .

Erinomainen
Opas kertoi selkeästi ja osasi johdattaa hienosti aiheesta toiseen. Tuli itsekin opittua uutta historiasta. 2 tuntia kestävä kierros oli juuri sopiva.

Lohnt sich sehr!
Da die Größe und die Vielfalt der bedeutenden historischen Schätze des britischen Museums einen schon erschlagen können, war unsere Führung die Rettung. Wir würden mit hohem Fachwissen und großer Begeisterungsfähigkeit durch die Highlights geführt! Alleine hätten wir das nie gefunden und als solches erkannt! Ein großes Dankeschön an unsere tolle Führerin! Regine und Peter mit Kindern

Great tour giving interesting insights into the museum.
There were only five people on the tour, making it a great experience. The guide, Trudy, was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly, explaining things with a wonderful enthusiasm. It is such an overwhelming museum, so having someone show you the highlights is certainly the best way to get the most out of a visit! A great morning that we can definitely recommend!

Very good tour but stories could have been brought to life a bit more
Super well organized tour and the headsets were definitely needed in a place as loud as the British Museum. Our guide was super knowledgable and pacing/timing of the tour was excellent. To improve would be that it felt too much like a history from school "this happened, then this happened, etc." > I would love to hear some stories to spice things up, or details that would relate life 2000 years ago to today. Just adding more life/spice to the whole thing. Ultimately, that's why I go with a tour guide instead of just walking around with wikipedia on my mobile phone. Could have been a bit more fun.

A great experience
We had a great day in the museum with a very nice guide showing us the highlights, providing information about the amazing building and also about the area. If you are in London and have a day to spent, don't miss to go to the British Museum. You better book a guide - it is simply too much and you might miss the important parts. Thanks again!

Gute Führung in gut verständlichem Englisch.
Wir waren erfreulicherweise nur zu sechst, netterweise haben alle auf uns am Treffpunkt gewartet, denn wir waren etwas zu spät dran. Die Führung war interessant und gut zu verstehen, unser Führer hat klar und langsam genug gesprochen, so dass auch mein 14-jähriger Sohn gut mitkam. Ich hätte bei den einzelnen Stationen gern noch mehr Zeit zum Fotografieren gehabt, daher nur 4 von 5 Sternen.
