Best Tour!
, Feb 2020
This was hands down our favorite tour of the trip to NYC! Lauren was so knowledgable and my eight and ten year olds learned so much from her. She was very patient and helpful. The Met is huge and can be intimidating. This was a perfect intro tour, especially for families with young kids. Highly recommend this tour!
Private tour at the Met
, Jan 2020
Our family had a private tour of the Met which was amazing. Our contact for the day Sarah was simply brilliant . She designed and executed the tour as we had requested to appeal to the interests of our 11 year old son who simply loved his time there. He really felt engaged and Sarah made him feel very comfortable. For us we also enjoyed Sarah’s knowledgeable explanations. We also valued saving time and effort by not having to worry about maps and working out what was where and how to get there. We didn’t see the private tour as an extra cost but more so an investment in getting the best experience possible from our short time at the Met. I highly recommend the private tour at the Met and Sarah.
Great Experience
, Nov 2019
Anastasia was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job connecting with our 11-year old granddaughter during the tour. Anastasia made the tour fun for all ages through the interesting pieces she selected to explain in depth and the details she highlighted. Most importantly, she got our granddaughter to overcome her shyness and ask questions! And the 2-hour tour length was just perfect.
Wonderful Tour with Sarah
, Jun 2019
Our tour of the MET was fabulous. Our tour guide Sarah was informative, interesting, engaging, and most of all FUN! My two nieces, ages 16 and 17, had a wonderful time. The tour was a highlight of our visit to NYC!

Because of the wide age range in our family group, 12-75, it was imperative that we personalize the tour to cover items of interest to all. Will was able to incorporate our special requests while still hitting the standard highlights of the Met.
Worth the money
