Great way to get a quick introduction to MET in 2 hours

I think the MET was the best museum we've visited in NY and it's huge. You really need to spend a full day in it. Having a guide for a 2h tour provides you with a quick way to see the highlights as well as learn to orientate within the vast museum. Our guide in particular was very pleasant and with many stories to tell about the things she presented to us. Things that are not included in most book guides. She could answer our question or simply say so when she didn't know the answer. It's a difficult job to choose what to show, but she did a great job.

Great museum, no reason to buy tix in advance

The Guggenheim is a marvelous place and we saw some great art and enjoyed some first-rate people watching too. But there's no reason to buy tickets in advance. You can't "skip the line." You get in the normal admission line, show the codes on your phone, and they print you a regular paper ticket. Fortunately the line was short, but it's hardly a timesaver to buy the tickets in advance. Annoying.

Our guide, Stephan was a fabulous teacher.

I loved that there were only 10 people in our group. Stephan explained and entertained us with his knowledge about the museums main attractions. He moved us along so we could see as much as possible and I made some nice acquaintances that day. This was the best way to find out which exhibits I wanted to revisit when the tour ended. Thank you so much.

Good highlights/overview tour for less experienced art fans

Stefan did a good job of moving through the museum at a brisk but comfortable pace. He was knowledgeable and provided good information about the art pieces. This tour is good for less experienced art fans who don't want to spend all day at the museum or study pieces in depth.

The highlights were perfect and our tour guide was passionate!

Our tour guide, Jason, could not have been better. I doubt there is a docent or curator at the Met itself that could as professionally done a better job. This guy is a keeper and deserves every compliment I'm sure he received. Great experience!
