Marion was a superb guide — knowledgeable about Mackintosh and about every other topic we raised with her (Scottish history, religious history, literature, contemporary events). She was very enthusiastic about Glasgow architecture, and clear and organized in her presentation of quantities of information. She was, further, most generous with her time and incredibly helpful with everything, including taking the bus. And she was a charming, delightful companion. We could not have wished for a better guide.
Ms Ezra was whip smart, energetic, and professional. Her broad and deep academic training enabled us to learn about art and architecture, history and techniques from the late 1890s to now. And she is very nice.
Ruth was extremely knowledgeable and came very well prepared. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was time well spent.
