    Katie was excellent! We were a group of 10 adults and my 12 year old granddaughter and the 3+ hour tour could not have been better. The content, timing, humor and comfort were priceless. Seeds of excitement to return and learn were planted in a 12 year old! Thank you, Katie.

    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.

Your guide will provide all the gossip about this and other exhibits, such as how Jackie O procured the Temple of Dendur for the Met; tales about the armor of Britain’s infamous King Henry VIII; and how some think the Antioch Chalice may be “The Ho...

    I think the MET was the best museum we've visited in NY and it's huge. You really need to spend a full day in it. Having a guide for a 2h tour provides you with a quick way to see the highlights as well as learn to orientate within the vast museum. Our guide in particular was very pleasant and with many stories to tell about the things she presented to us. Things that are not included in most book guides. She could answer our question or simply say so when she didn't know the answer. It's a difficult job to choose what to show, but she did a great job.

I have been to the Met many times. Finally booked the tour. Was not disappointed.This tour is fantastic. Walks of New York is the company. Katie was the tour guide. You will experience the highlights of the museum. All explained and detailed by Katie. No question was left unanswered. Katie made the tour highly educational and fun. Very enjoyable tour.

Nina Grand did a wonderful job moving us quickly through hordes of people to get to all the key sites efficiently so that we were able to see much more than we would have on our own. She took all our interests and needs in to account and was knowledgeable about the museum and its art. Nice to spend an afternoon with her!

Katie was excellent! We were a group of 10 adults and my 12 year old granddaughter and the 3+ hour tour could not have been better. The content, timing, humor and comfort were priceless. Seeds of excitement to return and learn were planted in a 12 year old! Thank you, Katie.

If you are late for your tour please let someone know when you enter the MET. Everyone is very helpful and will guide you to the tour agent.
