Lora structured our visit at the Rijksmuseum in such a way as to give us a history of Amsterdam and the progressions of the artists. It greatly enhanced our understanding and appreciation. Lora was an excellent guide and a delightful companion for the day.
It was splendid.
When planning this trip, I made a mistake with the date by one day. When I contacted Context, it was already in 100% penalty phase. They were wonderful in allowing me to change the date without penalty, just the Rijksmuseum tickets had to be purchased. The tour itself: Lora was great! As an art historian and professor, she was an excellent teacher at the Rijksmuseum-she showed us Netherlands' major artists and works, even tying some together to make a "story", which helped us to better remember. When on the tour of the city, she asked our interests, and she made sure she covered every one of them. We felt very comfortable with her and would love to have her as a docent again!
