Reviews for New York Art Tour
Date of tour: April 2012
Our group had a wonderful time in New York. There was a perfect mix of ‘culture’ and ‘fun’, and I know the entire group thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Paul was an excellent tour manager – very professional, everything ran like clockwork, and he was informative, approachable and a mine of useless (and useful) information. I hope he enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed his.
