One of the very best tours my family and I have ever taken. Edward was beautifully descriptive, patient, a wonderful explainer, and so personable. He knew the British Museum like an old friend, and made it come alive for me, my wife, and my two children. I'd book a tour with Edward no matter where he went, which is the highest praise I can give.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's very kind of you Robert. I took a look at your books on amazon. They seem very interesting

Edward was incredible. He was waiting for us at the steps of the museum and we went through it in slightly over 3 hours.He has amazingly vast knowledge of all the collections, artifacts,items and periods that are housed at the British Museum.He was helpful in reminding us about historical facts we couldn't possibly remember and put them in context. Explanations were clear and interesting. Kept us engaged. Don't go to the British Museum without him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's a lovely review Cristina. Many thanks

Edward was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide for the British Museum! He kept it interesting and interactive for our children! His knowledge of history and the museum is quite impressive. The museum can be overwhelming- make the most of your time with a guided tour with Edward! He even showed us to a great, quiet, outdoor lunch spot after our tour, which we were most grateful for!

Even though my husband and I have already been to the British Museum, it was a totally different experience when you're accompanied by an expert in British history and antiquities. Ed made history come alive. We were able to move throughout early histories of several civilizations and the impact they have today. Many of these antiquities are from areas that are now destroyed.

Edward combined our wish list with his knowledge of the important artifacts at the British Museum to bring to life the long and complicated history told by the museum. Since he knew his way around he was able to arrange the tour so that our time was spent efficiently. We had a grand afternoon and highly recommend his tour.

Edward and I had traded emails before the tour and had gone over what I particularly wanted to see. He covered everything, plus bit more. I thoroughly enjoyed the British Museum and found Edward to be an excellent source of information. In addition, he showed me how to use my new Oyster card and how to navigate the underground. On the way to the museum he pointed out Ll the places he thought I would find interesting. I really appreciated his expertise.

Edward was an excellent tour guide! He was sensitive to our areas of interest as well as our pace. His extensive knowledge of the history of the periods from which the artifacts came, provided a quite interesting perspective. He readily directed us to what he considered to be the most significant artifacts, thus enablying us to gain a omprehensive overview of the massive collection. Our visit would not have been nearly as comprehensive without his guidance.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words Claudia. It was a pleasure to meet you all

Edward was fabulous! We toured the museum with our 12 year old grandson who was studying ancient history. Edward kept him completely engaged (a difficult task). He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. There were 8 family members in our group. He related so well to each of us. Because of his knowledge of both the museum and its artifacts, our time there was very efficiently utilized. He was, by far, the best city guide we have ever had.

Edward has a wealth of knowledge about the British Museum and its contents that he was able to draw upon in introducing us to its collections. Had we attempted to visit the museum without his assistance, we would never have gotten as much out of the experience. Of course we could not see everything in a half-day; but Edward curated the exhibits to point out those things of most interest. He is an enjoyable companion as well; like having a knowledgeable friend guide you through the Museum.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind review James and it was really a pleasure for me too
