“Disappointing”

New York Gallery Tours
Ranked #448 of 660 Tours in New York City
Attraction details
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Tour in TriBeCa 11/23/13. Guide seemed unprepared, commentary was trite and uneducated as to background and significance of art viewed. Almost entirely relied on New York Times reviews. Shame, Rafael has gotten great reviews previously.

We had a great time on the lower east side tour. Dr Risemberg selected 7 galleries that each provided a very different experience. We would never have found these places on our own and we may have been too timid to go into some of them w/o the group. You have the added benefit of seeing the neighborhood and finding stores, galleries, restaurants to visit after the 2-2.5 hr tour. We plan on hitting the Chelsea tour next time we are in NYC.

We took the Chelsea Gallery tour with Dr. Rafael Risemberg. It was a great experience. Dr. Risemberg reviews the current offerings of the Chelsea galleries and picks the 7 best for his tour. We visited 7 galleries in two hours, so the tour is fast paced and covers all different types of art. Dr. Risemberg did his homework in advance and was able to speak knowledgeably about each artist and gallery. He is really enthusiastic about art and it came through on the tour. I would recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in learning what is current and interesting in the Chelsea galleries.
