Well worth it

This was my second tour of a major European art museum within a week, and I was glad once again to have opted to do this rather than wander the museum myself. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the works she showed us, and I appreciated the depth of her commentary about the individual works and the social and historical context within which they were created.
