    Stop: 3 hours
    Enter the National Gallery of Art and follow your guide through one of America’s best collections of artwork produced by Renaissance artists, French Impressionists, and great American painters. See works from Claude Monet, Raphael, Gilbert Stuart, and Edgar Degas, as well as more modern artists like Picasso, Pollock, Warhol, and O’Keefe, as you learn what’s really behind the creation of some of these pieces. Your private guide will lead the way through the halls of the museum, telling stories, and stopping at famous works of art. Some pieces you’ll see on this tour include “Ginevra de’Benci” by Leonardo da Vinci, “Self Portrait” by Vincent Van Gogh, and “Woman with a Parasol” by Claude Monet. Listen as your guide fills you in on the techniques behind some of the paintings, as well as some of the history and scandals that happened because of them. You’ll also learn about the museum’s building which took just 100 years to transition from a nearly hollow building to the home of the US’s best art collections.

Donna was awesome, very known. She is very passionate about art . We completed about 20 galleries in 2 1/2 - 3 hours . Perfect duration . She gave us wonderful historical facts about the paintings from Leonardo Da Vinci to Monet !!! Strongly recommend this tour as this Gallery is so big unless you have all day , best to have a guide to cover the most important paintings !!! Dr Randeep Suneja.

Richard is as entertaining as he is informative. We had a wonderful afternoon touring the National Gallery. Discovered many things about the building and it’s development in addition to the treasures inside. We would highly recommend this tour to get more seeing in and less reading (and a few laughs). Patron’s note here, the bulk of the tour is in the main building so if your interests are in the East Wing, please express that to your guide.

Richard was an absolutely fantastic guide. He told us great stories about the museum and great stories about all the pieces of artwork that he showed us. The National Gallery of Art is an absolutely amazing art gallery. Without Richard guiding us I think we would have been overwhelmed by all that there was to see. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to DC.

Donna proved to be very friendly, very personable, yet very professional and knowledgeable. She built her presentation wisely, moving us from one masterpiece to another - not chaotically, but rather starting with Giotto and moving slowly to modernists. We couldn’t wish for a better tour guide!

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.

I cannot say enough wonderful experiences about our private tour. Yet, the highest on the list was our tour guide, DONNA!! She made the overall event intriguing, sometimes humorous, well-paced, and overall compelling. A tour for all levels of art lovers (and even those who are not, as there are enough back story nuggets to keep you interested). Ask for DONNA if you are going to do this tour with Babylon Tours. You will not be disappointed.

It was a real pleasure to learn some surprising insights into the artwork and artists from Donna. She asked our interests toward specific art movements before our tour began. The tour was set up chronologically so it was interesting to see the progression of work through time. Donna was conversational in her approach which made the experience personal. Time flew but we were able to see many of the museum’s highlights. Thank you Donna for making our visit to the National Gallery so enriching!

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!

Donna, our tour guide, was outstanding. Her knowledge, pace, good humor, and leadership helped us cover 20 of the 90 galleries in about 3 hours and enabled us to have a deeper appreciation of art from the 13th century to modern art/Warhol. This is not a graduate level lecture. This is a tour that can be enjoyed by those of us who have visited many galleries to children. It was fun! The gallery is expansive, beautiful and quite a maze. Get this guide!

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.
