Erich was amazing and my family and I had a blast on this tour :) I enjoyed juicy and gossipy tidbits and loved imitating paintings with the tour group. A must do and a refreshing change from stuffy tours.

Molly is the woman. You should absolutely ask for her by name. Not only is she spectacularly knowledgable, but she has a wonderful sense of humor and is a terrific story teller. She connects with her tour very well.
