My two teenage daughters and I had a fabulous tour at the Met with Marina yesterday! She was engaging, friendly, and highly knowledgable. I emailed the company ahead of time letting them know what our specific interests were, and Marina had prepared a tour just for us. We

Amy, thank you so much for your review! Our team is always so pleased to deliver the best experiences of museums. It warms my heart that teens were involved; we've heard stories about how kids' art experiences with us have made impact 10+ years later as they continue their lifelong love of the arts that started with our tours. I'm thrilled to know that you'll keep treasuring those moments with us!

Thank you Michelle! We know how challenging large museums can be for families to navigate, and we love letting parents just relax and enjoy knowing the whole family will be in for a treat. And we're so excited to have William on the team. He's my son's favorite guide and my son, being raised in museums, is one of the toughest critics! We look forward to seeing you soon on another adventure.

We must have picked the busiest day of the year to visit the Met. Thank goodness the Art Smart tour allowed us to skip standing in line in the rain. We did a three-hour tour with Marina, and she was a gem. She rolled with the punches when areas were crowded, and her
