“American Biography walking tour at National Portrait Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

It really makes a difference to have a guide who really knows the subject matter and cares about giving the audience a great experience. Katie Wood of Context Travel is an expert on American art and was able to discuss artists, their influences, and the historical times in a way that kept all of us in the group interested. I learned quite a lot during this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested in American art.
