Robin made the experience come alive

Robin was amazing. She knew the answers to all of our questions and shared so many insightful lessons that enriched our experience. We thought we would stick around on our own after our time with Robin ended. Sadly she ruined us. We were not getting the same value from our time in the Met without her so we left while we were ahead. We will definitely book again and request her specifically.

We really enjoyed the Dutch and French artists as well as the American art. Robin was masterful in knowing the details and creating storylines around the paintings. Our guide, Robin truly made the experience wonderful!

Our guide Robin was excellent in giving us an overview and highlights of this great museum. Obviously it’s impossible to see this treasure in so little time, but she had a wealth of information and interesting stories to convey. Her educational and career background completed benefitted us all. Our whole family, including two teenagers, were truly entertained and educated by this experience.

The tour was perfect and very educational. The only way to visit the MET to learn all there is to know about its history and the fabulous art it contains.

Disappointed tour

Not worth the price. While the guide was nice enough, she did not seem to have the same type of outgoing personality we have had with other tour guides. Typically, we are given an overview of what the tour would be and entail. It did not seem to have much structure to the tour. Even at half the price, it was too much for what we got.

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.
