    This was the best guided tour we've ever had, anywhere.

    This was the best guided tour we've ever had, anywhere. Our tour of the Pompidou collection was a fascinating two-hour mini-seminar on modern art. Boris, our guide, is a genial, attentive, well-spoken, thoroughly knowledgeable young humanist scholar. We thank him for an altogether delightful and informative morning at the Pompidou.

    Je recommande vivement même en tant que français à être accompagné dans un musée de France. D'abord vous n'être pas seul. Et c'est déjà énorme ! Vous partager une expérience sensorielle et culturelle inédite avec un accompagnateur à l'écoute de vos problèmes face à l'art et vous apporte des clés de compréhension.

    Kein Plan von Moderner Kunst? Eine private Führung mit Boris und in zwei Stunden führt er seine Gäste mit großen Wissen und in bestem Englisch anhand einer wohl überlegten Auswahl von modernen Werken in die verschiedensten Stile und deren Facetten ein. Besonders zu erwähnen ist, dass dies nicht dozierend erfolgt. Es hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht, ihm durch dieses faszinierende Museum zu folgen und die Werke in einem besseren Kontext einordnen zu können und sie somit mit anderen Augen zu betrachten. Wir haben Lust auf mehr Modern Art bekommen!
