Delightful experience!

I enjoyed the afternoon with our guide. She took us through the magnificent artwork and what they represent and brought history closer to the group. We also debated the exhibitions during the afternoon tea, which was fabulous. I would highly recommend the tour!


Great insight!

I don’t usually care much about art, so I was skeptical when my girlfriend booked the tour. The experience was surprisingly fantastic as the guide investigated the artwork, which helped me understand it immensely! We even put the email address for the national gallery newsletter subscription so we can follow up on the new exhibitions. High recommendations!
