Hear What Past Participants have to Say:

"…Highlights included the Prado, the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Dali museum in Figueres, and the incredible Sagrada Familia church by Gaudi in Barcelona, plus a chance to see some of the beautiful Spanish countryside as we travelled between cities.  Tapas galore, a flamenco performance, and some great dinners completed a wonderful Spanish experience."
-Ann Cameron, participant in the Spain Art Tour (April 21-May 1, 2017)
"...As we watched the stunning sunset over beautiful Havana Bay on our final evening together, we bid Adios to Havana, but the memories linger on."
-Sue Rubin, participant in the Havana Art Experience (March 30 - April 6 2016)
"...Visiting the studios and, in some cases, the homes of contemporary artists (from a medieval tower to a stunning Roman palazzo) with the wonderful Caroline Soderkamp, who guided our recent tours to New York and Chicago, along with her colleague Ketty Teerling, made this trip unforgettable."
