Geoffrey was an excellent guide.Had a wealth of information on the highlights and was very engaging. The Special Access Tour is the best way to see the museum,especially the Rosetta Stone. Great to have the "alone" time to spend with such a great collection. Well worth the money and will take this again on our next visit

Terrific tour, the guide was very informative and the experience of being in the museum before it opened to the general public was very worthwhile.

This was the most amazing experience we could have imagined. Our guide, Nigel Haynes, was brilliant! He was personable and so knowledgeable about the Rosetta stone, Egyptian exhibits and the Elgin marbles -- he made the experience a once-in-a-lifetime event that we'll never forget!

Taking this tour was the best decision I made during our trip to London. The guide was brilliant! I'm bit of a history buff and the guide had many interesting anecdotes. It was really great to have the added bonus of getting into the museum earlier than everyone else and seeing the Rosetta stone without being mobbed by people. We really appreciated having a more intimate experience. Definitely worth taking this tour. 100% Recommended!

It was a very good experience! I had already visited British Museum on my own but this time I wanted to have a different guided tour. I joined it with my boyfriend and we had lots of fun with the guide Alex. We got lots of very interesting information! The best part of the tour was when Alex opened the door of the Rosetta Stone and we were the only visitors inside! Yes, I really recommend this tour!
