Merrily gave us an enriching, entertaining and most welcome tour of select Chelsea art galleries. The introductions to the work of the particular artists and galleries were well planned and thoughtful in scope. On our next visit we will do another tour with Merrily.

Our guide, Merrily, had thoroughly researched each gallery and artist before compiling a list of places to visit. Walking through the galleries unguided would have been pleasant in itself, but the added insight about each artist was a huge bonus and it made the experience so much more enjoyable!

The tour of the galleries in Chelsea brought us to places and revealed to us artists we could not have reached by ourselves. Merrily’s choices where to go and what to see and her presentations and explanations made the tour with her a beautiful and soul enriching experience. Highly recommended.

Extreme well run. She was very knowledgeable and curated an interesting overview of the most important current exhibits in Chelsea. She is extremely knowledgeable so would be able to tailor the experience based on individual expertise and interest. Highly recommend this tour if you are looking to gain an insiders perspective to the art scene in NYC.
