We felt so very fortunate that Stephan was our guide. He whizzed us around the Met with so much energy and grace - perhaps we lingered too long in the Egypt section but that’s understandable. The collection is amazing. I could have listened to him all day - he had so much information to share and added flavour and context to the art that we were viewing. We had limited time so the express tour was ideal for us. If we had tried to do this solo, we would have missed so much. We only regret that we raced off to catch our ride back to the ship without leaving a generous tip. I hope those that read this are able to compensate for my oversight.

Charlie was amazing. He made the tour a great experience by making it interactive and mentioned many of the details of the artwork.

Katie was truly exceptional as a tour guide. She was knowledgeable, engaging, creative, personable, and downright funny. My wife and I will definitely return just to see Katie again.

Had a great day here! Charlie is very knowledgeable and adds a lot of character. Learned a lot - couldn’t have done it on our own. Was very accommodating.

John was incredibly knowledgeable and provided colorful background on each piece we saw. We were consumed by the beauty around us. It was an incredible experience! Thank you, John!

The Egyptian exhibit was fantastic as always, and Kevin added great and interesting insights. I used to be a member of the Met and I am likely to join again.

The guide was a very “special” person. He cared more about himself than others. It's a shame because we were really looking forward to enjoy the experience. I do not recommend it.

Pam_M

Ask for KEVIN and you will not be disappointed. Excellent knowledge base and friendly personality really makes the visit a gem. I know nothing about art and his narration and stories really made the visit.
