Outstanding Personalized Tour for older kids

Our guide, Jared, had such a vast knowledge of and several personal stories/behind the scenes anecdotes about the museum that were so interesting. He was prepared to entertain and inform older kids and adults alike who already knew a lot about the Met. Our family learned so many new things about one of our favorite places.
Our girls enjoyed Jared’s tour!

He engaged kids of different ages well, and they look forward to going with him again!

1st visit for 8, 10 & 14 year old. 2.5 hours. We all loved the exhibits he showed us and we all learned things and had fun. Hate to think of vacations in terms of efficiency, but wow, did we use our time well with Jared.

We could not have been happier with our personalized family tour with Jared. He customized our route exactly according to the interests and whims of our two boys ages 13 and 9 and my husband and I. I explained our sons enjoyed Greek Mythology, have a limited knowledge of Impressionists and Renaissance but we hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for art in general. However, when they were enthralled with the Medieval art section, Jared was quick to adept and equally as knowledgeable and engaging for an area not on the list. Jared was excellent at encouraging questions and leading where the interest lie. He provided interesting back stories on the artists themselves and the message of the art itself. Exactly what we had hoped for. When the boys weren't any where near ready to leave after 2.5 hours, we considered the tour a smashing success.

Not worth it.

Our tour guide was not particularly engaging with our kids. The security line (skip the line line) was as long as the real line. Not worth the extra money. Was hoping to engage our kids for this money.
