    Our guide, Nina, made seeing The Met, a whole new experience, even for this long term member. She provided history, context and helpful insight in a way that was not overwhelming, but engaging. Her broad based knowledge of the museum meant we had an excellent overview of the top works of art, and many of the less celebrated artists as well. I can highly recommend this tour.

    This was an excellent tour Both I and my three grandchildren enjoyed Scott’s tour. We are still talking about it. He was engaging and informative. Never lost our attention.

Thank you for making this museum visit so special. Monika Ghattas
