Supertolle, professionelle und individuelle Führung von Marcel durch das Museum. Er konnte nicht nur alles toll erklären, sondern ist prima darauf eingegangen, dass wir den Tag zuvor in Giverny waren und somit die Eindrücke gut kombinieren konnten. Die Agentur hatte die Führung vorverlegt, uns darüber rechtzeitig informiert und wir freuen uns, dass wir so in den Genuss von Marcels interessanten Erläuterungen gekommen sind. Sehr gerne wieder, denn es war einfach toll.

Our guide was very knowledgeable

We were very happy with our guide. She was knowledgeable and very pleasant. We got lost walking over to the museum but she was there waiting right where we were told she would be.
