This 2.5 hour semi-private guided museum tour welcomes up to 8 guests who want to see the worlds most iconic artists inside two extraordinary buildings. The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is a world-class museum housing an incredible timeline of Western Art from the old masters of the Renaissance to the quintessential personalities of the 20th Century. Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Picasso, and Rothko are just a handful of artist on view (as well as Vigee le Brun, Cassatt, and OKeeffe).

    We had a great tour of the National Gallery of Art with Donna. As a person who hasn’t had much art education, I greatly appreciated how Donna gave the back story of each artist and linked it to their work. Donna was a great tour guide and I recommend her with great enthusiasm.

    We had Leigh as our tour guide and couldn’t be happier. She based the tour around what we wanted to learn and see, which was super helpful. Leigh’s knowledge of the paintings, the painters, and painting techniques was amazing.

    All the classic collection (Rembrandt, Degah, etc.). Richard clearly described not just content of exposition, but history of its creation. Fontaine Gallery

    Annemarie was an excellent guide. The tour moved at a good pace and was very informative along the way. It was so nice to have someone hit the highlights of the museum rather than wander aimlessly myself!
