This was a great concept and the tour leader was very well qualified as an art historian. Added many interesting historical details, was friendly, encouraging etc.. I really enjoyed going through the museum following a theme rather than room to room, epoch to epoch and seeing only one area. I wished it were a bit longer (would have paid more for that). I wished it had incorporated some of the Lautrec and the Kahlo exhibits, which have obvious shady content. Two of three times, our leader could not find the dart works he wanted to show us as they had apparently been moved. So, perhaps he could be better updated on locations of things. So, I was satisfied - more than "somewhat" but a little less than "very". I would take another of these tours because of the themed aspect as a great way to look at museums/art differently. Plus you get to actually walk a bit faster and cover some ground between pauses which makes me more alert and attentive.
