A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second tour of the day with Eugenie. Our family really enjoyed the tour. She engaged our children and really got us involved in discussions of the art and history of the pieces we saw. She knows very interesting stories about the artists and the time periods. We would highly recommend Eugenie.
