Guide NEVER showed up. Planned out day around this…everything about this was unprofessional. No one knew what was going on, couldn’t talk to anyone in charge..the whole experience was a disaster. Use at your own risk!


Booked for 3 people, Tour guide NEVER showed up. We planned our entire day around this. 😡 Called number listed, no one knew anything at all. We showed up early at the meeting point. Was so looking forward to it…should have hired an actual company and not go through Viator. Will never trust them again.


The tour guide didn't show up at the departure point, and never responded to multiple messages confirming the tour.


Wonderful tour with Peter as my very informative guide. Will do it again after the season starts in September


“Peter is extremely intelligent and passionate on the subject of Contemporary Art as well as Film and Philosophy. He’s a great person to visit galleries with for an afternoon in Chelsea He is well read, and incredibly savvy with his perspective on the contemporary art world without being pretentious while sharing his insights and in-depth knowledge. I think you could enjoy his tour as an art expert or like myself - a newbie to the contemporary art world scene. I am a New Yorker who isn’t super entrenched in this world so I wanted more knowledge of it. He helped guide me to all the gréât galleries in Chelsea, Manhattan and gave me a tutorial on the world from many perspectives. I saw great art too. He’s a thoughtful creative companion to guide you through the NY art scene. Highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again” - Kirsten
