Heather was very pleasant and easy to converse with. She could improve by having a more defined plan of presentation, allowing more time at the end for Impressionist paintings. We felt that we spent too much time with pre-Renaissance and later Renaissance paintings. I did appreciate the themes she was using to organize periods and topics, but found we were somewhat distracted at times, and not always finding the painting she was looking for. I think having a more set progression of paintings and a more defined path through the museum may help stay on point and on time.
Heather was terrific!!!Felt like we had had a survey course in World art and history. Liked it so much we booked a Context tour in our own town. We've taken many, and only one disappointed.
Very knowledgeable and very good delivery of information
