This tour was a blast! I loved that our guide was an art history professor who loves sharing about her passion, so we were able to ask a ton of questions and hear her perspective on the evolution of art from the middle ages to modern times, and learn interesting facts about the techniques, materials, etc. We were also able to see many of the museum's blockbuster pieces, and get some of the rooms to ourselves (as we were able to enter before the general public hours). Our guide was also super helpful and gave us her number in case we wanted additional recs for things to do in the area, more museums to explore, or even recs for additional reading to learn more about art history. Highly highly recommend this tour!

I haven’t had much experience with art but the tour gave me a lot of insight and context so that I could appreciate it. While the signs give info on one piece at a time they were able to connect the pieces across location, time, and other events to have it make sense. I enjoyed how we spent a good amount of time on each piece to dive deep. It was very useful to have an expert answer my questions in real time with a small group. I’d recommend the tour and would love to go again!

We have had a pleasure to have a private tour at the Art Institute of Chicago with имя. The tour was greatly organized and was very well structured. The tour guide asked for our interests and tailored the tour based on our interests and preferences. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and an expert in his field. There was not even one minute of the tour that was not interesting and filled with information. Great tour! Will definitely recommend it to everyone who’s interested in art and would like to know a lot of interesting information about paintings, artists and the museum.

I cannot say enough about Marlin. He provided a private tour experience for my siblings and myself. It was our first time together at the same place and time in over 20 years. We enjoyed our entire four days together. That said, the highlight of our time together -- other than simply reconnecting -- was Marlin's tour of the Art Institute of Chicago. My siblings and I were born and raised in Chicago. We had all been to the AIC at least once in our lives that we could remember. I have been there more than any of my siblings thanks to my Master's coursework at the University of Illinois Chicago in French studies. This included a number of courses in art history. Thanks to Marlin's amazing skills of narrating a story and taking guests on a very unique journey, it felt like I was discovering the Art Institute for the first time. It gave me a brand new appreciation for the Institute and its collection. One think that I particularly loved about Marlin is that if he did not know the answer to something, he admitted as much and committed to researching and providing answers in a follow-up email. This is an incredible testament to his integrity as a guide. Most guides would simply make something up. Not Marlin. As others have commented, Marlin bends over backwards to provide flexibility to his guests. When he heard of our plans prior to and after the tour's scheduled times, he offered a variety of options (i.e., meeting us at our lunch spot) to meet us early or extend the time of the tour to enhance our experience. Who does that? Right! Nobody! Two thumbs way, way high for Marlin and this tour.

We had Sarah as our tour guide, a very knowledgeable art historian. Great for couples, families, and art buffs. My boyfriend and I didn’t know much about art, but we still enjoyed it a lot we would’ve overlooked a lot otherwise.

We learned so much more with this tour than we would have by ourselves. Marlin was wonderful and it was very well done. Highly recommend.
