Testimonials "We so loved it and our group was fabulous. Doing an analysis I figured the artwork/installations ranged from dismal to creative and intelligent. Stopping at the wine bars in the late afternoon to have prosecco and chichetti was also such fun. Thank you!" (2011)

"Thank you once again for all the hard work you put into your La Biennale di Venezia tour. It was fabulous made, even more so by the considerable knowledge you bring about art, installations, the challenges artists face in getting ready for such a significant event, as well as your knowledge of getting around Venice and the places to go for wonderful food. Love the small group size also. It's my second time with you to Venice and I loved it as much as when I was on your 2013 tour." (2015)
