Gilles was a wonderful docent. I enjoyed the tour tremendously. Not only was he patient with the group (one with a sore back and me with really bad jet lag) but so fascinating was he that kept us wanting more! I particularly enjoyed his thoughts on the sound qualities of baroque instruments versus modern, as well as he thoughts on how that is analogous to trends in voice in opera. Cosmopolitan and talented docent. Very grateful.
Reinhard was knowledgeable regarding the things we asked about.
Docent was knowledgeable and gave complete answers, set his responses in the historical context, took time when we had an interest in something, tour went to a variety of sites, e.g. churches, museum, provided MP3 players so we could listen to a piece of music, tour went over time Docent could speak louder and more clearly (traffic noise, other background noise), make sure everyone is assembled before speaking, direct people more obviously where to stand to view object, place
