Overview

This 2.5 hour private guided museum tour will show you the world’s most iconic artists inside two extraordinary buildings. The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is a world-class museum housing an incredible timeline of Western Art from the old masters of the Renaissance to the quintessential personalities of the 20th Century. Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Picasso, and Rothko are just a handful of artist on view (as well as Vigee le Brun, Cassatt, and O’Keeffe).

Take excursion through the changes of history as told by magnificent works of art - money, power, war, hope, and triumph. From the intimacy of a da Vinci portrait to sweep of a Monet to the bold strokes of a Kandinsky, you will be dazzled by the vast holdings and the stories that accompany them. You’ll delight over familiar names and hidden gems while our passionate guides navigate you through notable highlights of technique and artwork from over the past seven centuries.

Megan was a delight. Her knowledge of art and artists was amazing and a bit overwhelming. We learned quite a lot about some artist we we're less familiar with. She engaged the preteen children in the group with fun questions about the art. Definitely a worthwhile tour.

Our guide, Bess, provided so much knowledge and information. It was exactly what we were hoping for! We very much appreciated her ability to share and her way of communicating. Can’t wait to come back for our next Babylon private tour.

Donna made our visit to the museum much more engaging! We all learned so much. We touched on a little art from many different eras. After the tour we felt more confident to revisit areas of the museum and study more on our own.

Our Babylon guide was incredibly knowledgeable, well-traveled and kind. Her tour was the perfect mix of historical, cultural and personal perspective. We’ve already recommended her to friends and family, and will find her again for another tour! Babylon was also very well organized and responsive- a perfect experience!

Our tour guide, Donna, was absolutely outstanding. We toured a museum we had all been to so many times, but learned so much we never knew. Thank you. I would highly recommend this to my closest friends. I will definitely use them again. The value far exceeded the investment. Amazingly delightful success.

Donna was knowledgeable, friendly and explained things thoroughly. She asked up front if we had specific interests and worked those into the tour. We had a great time!

We could not have asked for a better experience!! Amanda was knowledgeable and informative. She asked for our guidance in the type of art we were most interested in and planned the tour accordingly. Our time together was extremely enjoyable and we came away with an even greater appreciation for all art - even modern art as she opened our eyes on how to view it from a different perspective. This was our first private tour ever and we are totally spoiled. Other guides will have a tough act to follow. If you book a tour, I’d definitely request for Amanda to be your guide!
