A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour. Exceeded all our expectations. Very knowledgeable and thorough description of the evolution of painting styles, the history and politics of those supporting the arts through the ages and the artists themselves. Also very well versed in the work involved in restoring and maintainig the pieces of art in the collection.
