Really enjoyed our tour with Mark. His knowledge of the art was outstanding and he entertained us with unusual facts. He read the room very quickly and went off piste with us a few times which we really appreciated as he very quickly saw where our interest went. I thoroughly recommend this company for their connection with us and for keeping us posted with times etc. lovely to meet you mark, good luck. Knott family

Awesome tour! Mark was wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable. We would not have been able to cover 1/2 of the art we did without him. I HIGHLY recommend Mark and Viator for your NEW YORK tours.

Mark was amazing! Knowledgeable and passionate about art and art history. Went with my wife, but he would be perfect for families or groups of any kind. If you can, ask for him, you will have a great experience.

Exciting tour with a passionate, knowledgable guide

Our tour guide, Mark, was an absolute delight from the moment we met him. Informative, friendly, so passionate about art and New York. He guided my mum and I through the gallery towards pieces he is particularly fond of and interested in, but was also attentive to our individual interests and tailed the tour accordingly. I thoroughly enjoyed our musings and discussions over each piece we stopped at and was left feeling joyful and inspired by the experience. We couldn't have asked for a better guide and first introduction to the Met! Worth every penny.

The total experience has been memorable. I could have never imagined that America has contributed so much to the world of art. The building itself is a lesson in American art history. It was all possible due to Mark

James wasn’t that good
Meander32524879230
, Jul 2019
The tour guide James wasn’t good. He didn’t visit w us about the areas we cared to see. Instead spent more time in areas we didn’t prefer. Too many anecdotal stories about an artist or piece but very very little about it the art itself. It appeared he wasn’t very knowledgeable about the art itself. Many times simply reading from the iPad notes.
