I really think you have an exceptional talent in the way you present and teach art history during your tours. You are energetic and enthused and are able to integrate a great deal of background and relevant information along with the art data in your lectures. The private tour at the museum was outstanding and classic Mishur.

New York Art and Architecture Tour


I really enjoyed the Pittsburgh (Fallingwater) trip. Your plans were thorough yet flexible. I enjoyed the opportunity for some free time. I loved the "extras" such as seeing more of the houses, and taking pictures, which a friend of mine who went two weeks earlier could not do. The cocktail party was a wonderful addition, and I met some very nice people.

My wife and I had a wonderful and very informative time with you at The Art Institute of Chicago.  Thank you again.

Still pinching myself that I enjoyed your wonderful Fallingwater Tour even more than I had anticipated.  Your tour included the total package to enjoy; the history of Pittsburgh and its fabulous downtown restoration, the Frick Mansion and the Carnegie Art Museum.  To think that my reason for going on the Fallingwater Tour was to see the FLW houses and that the other places on your itinerary were equally as enjoyable to me was a delightful surprise!  The fall colors traveling thru PA were a bonus and I hope one day I'll go back to the area.  Many thanks to Jeff for hosting this tour and to Michelle for behind the scenes work.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for the summer excursion to CA. I have a very colorful bulletin board outside my art room of “Ms. B’s Awesome Summer Art Excursion.”

Thanks for another well-run and enjoyable trip. We all know how much work and devotion you both put into the planning of your trips, and everyone appreciates it.

Fiesta de Santa Fe Art and Architecture Tour


What a wonderful tour you gave us.  It was very hard for me to choose what I liked best, I enjoyed all of it so much. Visiting the private collection was my favorite, I think.  Viewing all the works of art in a home setting really made it come alive. You took very good care of us and chose an excellent place to stay near to many excellent restaurants, and providing a convenient shuttle service and concierge. We have praised the tour to our friends and many seemed very interested.  It is also a very comfortable tour, if you are traveling alone.  The group was very friendly and watched out for one another all the time.  I look forward to going on many more.

Many thanks for your assistance and expertise in leading a wonderful tour. We all enjoyed it and we know we will be asking you to help us again. Also, I will be doing research on the three artists you mentioned. It is always good to have a fresh new viewpoint in the up-and-coming area. (Review also posted on Tripadvisor.)

You were very well received among the group this morning. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be with us. I am elated that my friend highly recommended you for our meeting.

We wanted to thank you again for a very interesting program on Edvard Munch. Our patrons gave you high marks on the feedback form and they very much appreciated your thoroughness on the subject. We are looking forward to our next program.

We just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much we enjoyed the Fallingwater tour to Pittsburgh. As always the venues were excellent and your planning and execution was flawless. It was a pleasure to spend time with people from previous tours and to talk with the new people. Thanks for the acknowledging us for twisting your arm on the tour idea. Now we'll have to rack our brains for some more ideas. We were, of course, looking forward to the Fallingwater house tour and it was great - but Kentuck Knob turned out to be a very pleasant surprise - we enjoyed it very much.

What a delightful team you are and what a spectacular tour. Everything was just fantastic and I am definitely a fan!  I expected to enjoy Fallingwater. I did not expect to feel anything like the intensity of my reaction to its majesty. I can only compare it to standing next to Michelangelo’s David. It was a truly spiritual experience and I thank you so much for making it possible.

Once again my Art Excursions tour number 20 was a fabulous success. Everything was just great. And it is always like a class reunion to renew some prior acquaintances and to meet new people.

I wanted to thank you for all your work in planning and organizing the Philadelphia tour. I had a great time. My friend and I talked about how well you had set things up so that there was a variety in the excursions. Also, I appreciated your knowledge about all the things we were seeing. I will definitely be interested in any future trips. Thanks again for a great excursion.

Philadelphia Art and Gardens Tour featuring The Barnes Foundation


Just a quick note to thank you for another great trip! The Barnes Foundation collection is quite remarkable.  The Frida Kahlo exhibit was a pleasure, as was the Philadelphia Museum of Art. And as always you find additional small jewel museums that we might miss if we were on our own. We are looking forward to the Fallingwater tour next!

Philadelphia Art and Gardens Tour featuring The Barnes Foundation


Thank you so much for a wonderful long weekend. We are both looking forward to another excursion--or more. Boston, Washington, Santa Fe and Falling Water all appeal.  The Barnes is incredible--both for the collection and for the eccentricity.  I'm sure we will travel with you again--and thanks again!

We had a wonderful time on our trip.  Jeff is an outstanding art historian and a pleasure to listen to...

Everything was very well planned and executed.  We are seriously considering Santa Fe and are hoping to work it into our schedule.
