Rossa was extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and informative. we were contacted before the day to make sure all our arrangements were catered for. The group was small and we were thoroughly engaged for the whole tour (Even though my partner and I had to leave to early). I would highly recommend this tour for anyone of any age, who likes archaeology, or the British museum. Fun and informative from the start!!
