Best decision! - Best decision of my trip to book this tour! Richard was absolutely delightful, incredibly organized, and took the time to collaborate to ensure I saw what interested me specifically. Was such a great tour I was confident to go back later in the week on my own to see more items (you could easily spend a week at the V&A!).

This tour is a 10! - We were blown away by our guide Robert’s knowledge, enthusiasm, story-telling, and overall passion for the art. The three-hour tour flew by and for hours after, we walked and talked about it. We highly recommend this tour—and feel assured that the positive experience would transfer to other museums.

Take this tour! You won't be disappointed. - We had a wonderful time in the V&A with our guide Robert! The museum would be very overwhelming without a guide, but with Robert in charge, we were able to focus on the special pieces of art and the stories within (most of them are items we would've just passed by without knowing their significance!) This tour made our experience so much better and very special. I highly, highly recommend.

AN AFTERNOON TO REMEMBER - Robert was amazing, this is very obviously his passion. He had so much to tell us, and was keen to tailor our private tour to our interests. However his narrative told a story, linking sculptures and artwork to history, with stories of which artists/sculptors influenced/taught who. We talked about where original pieces of artwork were still kept and when hearing of our planned future trips he was keen to give us things to look out for. 3hrs of the history of artworks that flew by so quickly, a tour to suit all levels of interest. Thank you Robert for a memorable afternoon.

Entertaining and thorough! - Robert was absolutely amazing! He is so knowledgeable and entertaining weaving a thread through the vast collection at the V&A. Three hours is a very short time amidst this monumental collection of art and artifacts, but Robert managed to give me a great introduction to various exhibits and point me to the most outstanding and unique pieces while tying it all together historically. I am so grateful I was able to spend this time with Robert. I would give him 10 stars if able!
