The pieces selected for the tour were mostly from the Director's Choice list, which you can do on your own with the brochure or audio guide. Our group was large (about 40) which made it difficult to see the pieces and the details for which our...continued

The tour itself was excellent. I just wished that Goldstar had made clearer that the tour was NOT affiliated to the National Gallery of Art.

The National Gallery of Art is a wonderful museum. I love the West building and all the collections. Even though we had been to this Museum before, my friend and I booked a 2-hour private tour with Stephen Mead, a professional museum tour guide. ...continued

Clearly a highlights tour. No tour can do justice to this great art museum unless it is for several days and preceded by a class. But this is an excellent use of two hours to get an expert view of great art.

Such an informative way to visit this museum. Our guide, Steve, was a raconteur who provided such interesting tidbits, and often with humor. Two hours of viewing selected works of art in a chronicle order. Anyone, even those with only a slight...continued
