I have mobility issues and Allan made it all easy. Allan is extraordinarily knowledgeable and it is lovely that the sharing of that knowledge can be a conversation rather than a lecture. The V&A is a treasure trove. I saw a lot and have barely scratched the surface. Now that I have had an introduction I am sure that I will go back. The Crash Course was a wonderful introduction.

My reviews must be getting boring, I can't find anything to improve. We enjoyed our tour with Hattie. The V&A is such a hodgepodge of stuff it would be easy to get overwhelmed or get bogged down in just one area without a guide. Hattie didn't try to see everything but gave us a series of glimpses to give us a sense of the breadth and quality of the collections. This tour was also well paced and included a timely tea break. We stopped a few minutes early, at our request, just because we couldn't absorb any more and would just be mechanically checking things off the list. But we did end with a sense of the organization of the collection and could identify some other areas we'll want to see on a return visit. Hattie is very personable and we enjoyed hearing her background. We shared a lot of common interests, like picture frames, that made the tour more of a conversation.
Alan was extremely knowledgeable. It was like spending 3 hours with a good friend who shared his knowledge of the V&A. As he said, it wasn't a lecture but a conversation.
