The range and number of the impressionists was wonderful at the Met! Katherine is knowledgeable and passionate about art and art history. She is able to tether together the arc of Art history and show how our art and culture are not isolated to separate epochs, but are built layer upon layer. Highly recommend

Fantastic Private Met Tour by Mark

My husband and I have been on a lot of art gallery and museum tours, and they can be hit and miss. The Viator private tour of the Met was a definite hit. Our tour guide, Mark, did a fantastic job. He was passionate about the Met and its collection, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable. We had a lot of fun and would book another Met tour with Mark again in a heartbeat.

Our guide Katherine expertly guided us through the huge number of rooms. As an art historian, she was able to bring the pieces and the artists alive for us. We were able to ask questions and the time flew by. Everyone in our group said they would book the same tour again if they had the opportunity to go back.

Jonathan was a very personable guide. He was very knowledgeable and also very willing to include our “want to see” exhibits in his planned program. I loved the story behind Washington Crossing the Delaware. I appreciated his giving us the story behind the displays and encouraging a different perspective on the displays. I will highly recommend your tour

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He used our time wisely. If you ask for my time to give you feedback, you should not require that I do so in at least 100 characters. Fix this. Thanks.

Guide was kind and reliable - Viator was not
Kim_A
, Feb 2022
Guide whisked us past long line and tour began immediately. He was kind and knowledgeable. However, Viator was not helpful with adding an additional person even 24 hours prior to tour therefore my experience was not as good as my own daughter could not join us. It would have been very easy to add her - the museum was not crowded.
