Reviews “The tour guide has a British accent. He was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained during our entire trip.” – customer review on yelp “Stephen really gives it his all. His performance as a tour guide is award-worthy”- customer review on TripAdvisor “While guiding us to a selection of the art at the gallery Stephen Mead was entertaining and informative. He had a story to tell about each piece of art that he took us to view and pointed out details that would have escaped most of us if we were on our own. In the process we learned something about art that we didn’t know before the tour. It will stand us in good stead as we continue to view and enjoy the masterworks of the art world wherever we go.” Goldstar
