Skip-the-Line Metropolitan Museum of Art Guided Tour - Semi-Private 8ppl Max
New York City
Highly recommend the private Metropolitan Museum Tour
I set up a private tour of NYC’s Metropolitan Museum bc 9 family members visiting ages 86 - 19. About 1/2 enthusiastically embraced the opportunity for the private tour and 1/2 aren’t “museum fans” and planned to “hop out” after an hour to stand on the coat line for the rest of us. Our tour guide Mark texted me 24 hours in advance to set up the meeting location, greeted us with warmth, a big smile, helped us settle in and off we went. From the first moment Mark skillfully managed the group, shared secret nooks and crannies of the Met, its history, the fun human background on donors to the building and art collections, weaved us through the various rooms, and enlightened us with a fun, interesting dialogue of art history including history of the artists, the pieces and culture at the time of the painting. I watched our entire group smile, laugh, ask questions, and, before we knew it, 2 hours had elapsed!!! Our mixed group of 9 all agreed we need to meet with Mark on our next trip for another tour of a NYC landmark. What a fun afternoon!!! Thank you Mark!!
I recommend Mark’s tour for young and old. A testament to his exciting and interesting tour is we were followed by young and old trying to hear what he was saying bc other people at the museum who weren’t on our tour were also intrigued by his insight. Highly recommend this tour.
