Thanks so much, it was such a fun group! I was really glad everyone appreciated the special dental addition to the tour!
THE WAY to see The Met. Jonathan was excellent.

Because of weather in NYC, we switched our Met day (and to Cicerone Travel's tour) at the last minute, from another very well reviewed similar tour. We were cautiously optimistic it would be comparable and we found it to simply outstanding. Jonathan, our guide, contacted us prior with instructions on finding the tour, breezing through security, etc. We had about 13 people in the group and it was a good size, could move around easily, yet hear everything. Jonathan was knowledgeable, well prepared, easy to understand and interested in the group's members. We saw literally the best highlights of the Met, yet still were there for several hours, moving at an efficient pace. No reservations in recommending this tour to anyone interested in seeing The Met (and not getting lost/sidetracked in the process).

Thanks so much for the kind words! So glad you had a great time!
Worth every penny!

The Met Museum would have overwhelmed us and we wouldn’t have known where to start so hence why we booked a private tour. Jonathan was totally brilliant , clearly knows his subject inside out and explained things in a fun and interesting way. A lovely Guide who we can’t recommend highly enough!
Katherine the great guide.
Stefan_K, Nov 2022
Katherine have us a wonderful and very informative tour. Extremely knowledgeable and couldn’t do enough to make our visit enjoyable.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks so much! I'm glad you appreciated Katherine as much as we do - she's the best!
How to truly experience the M.E.T.
Richard_M, Jun 2022
Our tour guide, Mark, was awesome. Having an expert in the art, artist and all other subtle things surrounding a piece is the only way truest enjoy the MET. Laura and I loved the way Mark asked our group questions to make us think and truly engaged us.
Only way to see this museum!
Lynette_B, Jan 2022
We had a fantastic time touring the Met with Jonathan. He provided amazing insight into various pieces and answered our questions. Easy to communicate with before meeting up and was right on time. So glad he suggested going early as the line to get into the museum was VERY long with vaccine checking when we left later in the day. With such a huge museum it was wonderful to get to have someone show us the highlights and walk us around. Our time flew by! This is the only way to see this museum. We would tour with Jonathan again!
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Thanks, Lynette! Let's do a reprise when you're back in town!
