"Between the amazing accommodations, transportation and itinerary, we could not be more pleased with our experience on our first Carnegie Museums trip. As a mother/daughter duo, we had the opportunity to learn about incredible artwork and the cities we visited without any planning or logistics to manage. It allowed us time to bond and discover things together, creating memories that will last a lifetime."
