Metropolitan Museum of Art: Un-Highlights Tour
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/24/2020
The tour was great! I've been to the Met many times before but it was nice to get a more in-depth view and history behind some artwork I wouldn't have been able to get on my own. Jen was a funny and informative tour guide.

Reviewed by Neisha R. on 12/29/2019
The tour was refreshing and very comical and enjoyable. All the major points of the museum were touched. Our tour guide had a very dry and sarcastic sense of humor that made the tour extremely funny.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 9/6/2019
The tour guide was lively, entertaining, and engaged. However, she walked to quickly for some of the older members of our group. Also, her speech was sprinkled with F… ING and other curse words which was completely unsuitable for the situation.
