Donna was wonderful
Donna was extremely pleasant knowledgeable and asked prior to embarking on the tour what we were most interested in and planned accordingly. She did such a wonderful job at highlighting the most important exhibits and led us through a thoughtful experience. We would highly recommend Donna and this tour to make the most of your time at this overwhelmingly huge museum.

Leigh was amazing-she took us to spots where we would not have went and maybe would not understood. She also is clearly an actress and professional storyteller so she delivered a message better than any documentary.

Brenda was fabulous. It is not easy to satisfy an age spread of 16-71, but she did! Her knowledge and ability to customize the tour to your preferences was outstanding. Tip: Husband had been before, but said he wished he had taken a tour because there was so much he didn't see. So worth going with a pro.
