Alan made the museum come alive. He was great with the kids and kept us all enthralled for the full 3 hours. An excellent way to see just a small part of the museum - because it is so large. We could have spent 3 days!!!
Helena was great but you have to expect very detailed information from an archeologist's perspective. This would not be the tour for someone who expects a quick and "dirty" overview of the museum. My wife and I really enjoy her companionship and knowledge but we had a limited experience and would have liked to see more in the Egyptian and Greek areas of the museum. To accomplish this expectation, more time with Helena would be required, possibly including lunch.
So many people touching the exhibits….
