The tour was a great over view of the collection. I have been several times but this took me to parts of the Art Institute that I hadn't visited before.

Excellent private tour of the Art Institute.

Marlin was a fantastic guide. He gives a great introductory orientation to set the tone, and he engaged the interest of my two grandson, ages thirteen and fifteen. He took us to the most important exhibits, with wonderful information and anecdotes about the works of art that the average person would never have a chance to know. . Marlin spent well over two and a half hours with us , and we were never bored. There is so much to see at the Art Institute, that would have had a hard time knowing what to see on our own and would have missed important works. This tour was worth every penny, especially as a great cultural experience for two teenagers!
