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

The tour was fabulous. The guide was knowledgeable and pointed out things that I would have never noticed on my own. He also chose some smaller less famous paintings to show us. I highly recommend this tour.

The Religious Art Tour was excellent--I mean fabulous, and I would do that one again hands down. This one was good, but I wouldn't pay to see it again. The difference was that this tour focused on the gossip or stories behind what was depicted...continued
