ART APPRECIATION TOURS - 2020
Art Appreciation Tours have arranged trips to Amsterdam, Florence, Paris, Glasgow, Oxford, Edinburgh, Cornwall, Liverpool and London. Jennie presents a series of talks related to the tour theme and brings to life the intricacies of, for example, The Pre-Raphaelites, The Italian Renaissance and the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
"The visits are so well organised that we make the most of our days often visiting three sites in one day but without feeling exhausted. The breaks we had for snacks and lunch were well balanced and using specially hired transport meant a quick and effortless transit between sites. In the evenings we had the chance for further discussion and feedback and then social time. The hotels were good with wide facilities on offer."
