Super great, professional and individual tour of the museum by Marcel. Not only was he able to explain everything very well, but he also explained that we had been in Giverny the day before and were therefore able to combine the impressions well. The agency brought the tour forward, informed us in good time and we are delighted that we were able to enjoy Marcel's interesting explanations. I'd love to do it again, because it was just great.

We enjoyed a private guided tour in Italian. Signora Lucia guided us very competently through the museum and we really enjoyed it.
