Hello there! I’m Dayan, but you can call me Dan! I’m originally from Brazil, (US) American Citizen, living in London and passionate about history and tourism. I’ve guided dozens of groups to Israel and Egypt and what a surprise to discover many of the treasures from that land here, in London, at the British Museum! I hope to take you on this unforgettable journey and to share some good knowledge while at the museum!

Tour description

I know, I know! Visiting a museum can be stressful sometimes. Specially one with 8 million objects and a place visited by more than 6 million people a year… it can be overwhelming! 

But at the same time, how can you visit London and not go to the British Museum??? (everybody will ask you this when you get back home, trust me!) 

THAT'S WHY I PUT TOGETHER THIS ROUTE AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM.
TO VISIT ONLY THE HIGHLIGHTS, MOST IMPORTANT, ESSENTIAL AND FAMOUS ITEMS.

 In just over one hour, I promise we will see:

  • EGYPTIAN
  • GREEK
  • ASSYRIAN
  • PERSIAN
  • ROMAN
  • POLYNESIAN
  • BRITISH

Art and other objects, sculptures and statues. I will share some very interesting facts and stories about it. 

 

YES IT IS POSSIBLE! 

So now you’ll have time to visit other hundred (or two hundred) important and unmissable places in London! 

 

Of course, we’ll go straight to the point when we get to the museum. 

Book now, get here in time and let’s enjoy the tour. 

 

Oh, Yes, I forgot to mention: you don’t even need to book tickets to the museum, I’ll take care of it. (Because it’s free ;-)  

We will meet under the columns, in front of the museum entrance just after you pass security!☺️🙏🏼

Dayan is an incredible guide! He was able to show us the most essential exhibits in the most informative, fun and kind manner. We would have never covered so much in an hour and half in our own. British museum is a must and we were very happy with our first visit guided by such an energetic and knowledgeable guide. Definitely would recommend his tour.
