The docents on hand do a fantastic job of explaining the historical context of each scene. Coupled with state of the art lighting and a top-notch orchestra, there is no spectacle quite like the Pageant of the Masters. With just a few weeks left in the season, the window to see The Grand Tour is quickly running out.
