This three hour tour with Katie was excellent. She was extremely informative and entertaining and guided us around the rabbit warren that is the museum. It was packed with families and it must have been tricky keeping us all together. The queues for the toilets were a downside! We also found it difficult ti find Katie at the meeting point and would have appreciated a better system for finding our way into the museum and finding her.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job showing us the highlights of the extensive collections. This gave us good direction in deciding what we would like to explore in more depth. I would recommend this tour for all first time visitors so as not to be overwhelmed by the vast building and galleries.

SCOTT was the beat guide! Even if he was from Michigan - haha!!!
He was personal and gracious, mannerly and interesting. He gave us what we wanted and MORE! I agree we spent too much time in Egypt and not enough on paintings, but it was an excellent tour! Not too taxing on my 81 year MIL.

This tour was superb. The guide was a walking library with so much knowledge and stories. We deviated at the end to see other areas of the museum not included but it is very comprehensive and with every penny of it. Must come back to spend a week here!

Best way to go through the Met for your first visit - we would've been so lost without our tour guide Katie! She was very interactive and answered any and all questions we had.

Excellent Tour by Guide Katy. We are not big Art fans, but Katy made this tour extremely interesting and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.
Katy's love and excitement for the Artwork / Artists was so strong and this really added to the enjoyment of the Tour. Katy was very knowledgable, shared lots of History, and kept the pace moving at a good speed which we also really liked as it allowed us to see more.
I would highly recommend taking this Tour with Katy and doing the extended 3 1/2 hours as it flys by very quickly because she makes it so interesting. Thanks very much Katy !!

This was our first experience with Viator and we were very pleased. We visited the Met last year but found it overwhelming. Katie guided us to the highlights, was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions.

This was the extended tour. For non-New Yorkers who walk everywhere this is about too much. We were whupped.

Enjoyed the tour guide, he was both knowledgable and quite funny. It added SO MUCH to hear the little extras he went through at practically every stop. We would have missed a lot even if we had followed the exact route on our own. Several times he went off the path to show me a painting that I asked to see.
The Met is impossible to do in a day or even a week, but in three hours we really got a great feel for it. Most important, we found several areas that we returned, even though exhausted, to after the tour, to examine works of art in even greater detail.
I would strongly recommend this tour Though the lines were not long when we got there, at another museum, the Skip the Line access was a true life saver.

Fabulous tour! Katie expertly guided us through the museum to see the highlights. She stopped at key points to explain exhibits and each came to life in a way that can't be done with an audio headset. Museum was crowded but we avoided lines. Well worth the reasonable cost.

There is just so many things to see in the MET. I was not a big museum person but the history and beauty of the art is amazing. The tour did a nice job of bringing us to the top highlights of the museum and gave us time to explore on our own. The rooftop view made for a stunning finish. If you have never been to the MET before or if it has been awhile since your last visit check out the tour as the guides really have interesting back stories that you just would not know going on the tour yourself.

Fabulous tour with Stefan on Saturday afternoon. His enthusiasm and knowledge made the two hours fly by . Will definitely visit The Met again after such a great introduction. 100% recommended tour.

If you don't have much time, this is the best way to see the Met. We had only 6 in our group. Scott was knowledgeable and spent the right amount of time in each exhibit. The Met can be overwhelming as well as a maze of exhibits so a guide is great.

I chose the extended 3 hour tour for my daughter aged 14, myself and a friend and I have to say it lived up to my expectations. Our guide was highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and engaging. He gave us a 'best of ' style tour, considering the size of the collection, which encouraged us to come back another time to explore further. I can thoroughly recommend this tour and it was worth every penny. Thank you!

The museum is so extensive you can never see it in 3 or 4 hours.
However the guide we had: Kashmir, made the best of it , taking us through some of the most beautiful , various and interesting pieces of art and providing with very good explanations.
