A fascinating insight that left me wanting more... - Matilda was a fantastic guide; knowledgeable, enthusiastic, funny, and clearly had a real passion for her subject. I had been to The Tate Modern several times before but being guided through the art with Matilda brought the place to life. I left with a totally different perspective on the subjects and was encouraged to think about art in a different way. Highly recommend the tour, highly recommend Matilda!

Excellent! - We enjoyed the tour very much! Our guide, Ellie, was lovely. She told us a lot about periods and selected pieces of art of special significance. She included us in a very good way, asking questions, and was interested in our reactions to various artworks. We also had inspiring discussions. Very recommended

Becky made abstract art come alive! - I love all types of art but my husband is not a fan of modern art. Becky changed everything! She made our 2 hour trip interesting & interactive. Conversations were thought provoking & helped us look at the abstract & modern art from different perspectives. Now if we go to an art museum we will always hire a guide to give us educated & different perspectives!!

Best docent ever! - Becky was amazing! Having a tour with an art history buff was great. She made it very interactive for us and did a nice job of providing context for the art we were viewing without interpreting it for us. Would highly recommend!

Fun afternoon at the Tate Modern - We had a fantastic and enjoyable tour of the Tate Modern with Matilda. She was very knowledgeable of art in general, and in particular, the art objects in the Tate Modern. Matilda explained the art in the museum in easy to understand language and asked our impressions and interpretations. She was also very helpful in giving us assistance with getting back to our hotel.

Don't debate. Just take this tour. - This was a most fabulous day at the Tate Modern. Our guide Sacha was excellent. He showed exceptional knowledge of art and conveyed it in the most pleasant way. We learned so much from all that he shared. No one can see everything in an art museum and understand its place in history by reading wall panels. You need a guide that can put the art and its meaning in context. Sacha did that. But he also made it interactive by asking our thoughts when we looked at the art. The Tate often changes exhibits and I was impressed that Sacha stopped in the Tate prior to meeting our tour. That way he was prepared to see and describe the most current exhibits. If you are debating a guided tour at any museum, don't. It's money so well spent.
