My experience was great. I was trained as an art historian. Having said that, the experience that an individual walks away with depends on the level of the knowledge an individual has relating to the objects they have witnessed. In particular, I look for works of are that I can relate to because I have studied that specific work. For example. When I walked into the Baptistry at the rear of the Siena Cathedral, I was blown away at a specific work by Donatello, that I wrote a 23 page paper on.
The MET is an amazing museum. Reserved a 10:00 time slot because they said to do that online, but when we checked in with our tickets they didn’t care about the time. There is SO much to see and not enough time. My friends and I tried to see as much as we could in 2 hours but it barely scratched the surface!
The offer of the attractions is very varied, redeeming the tickets to enter the museums and centers was practical and fast. The tour guides were very friendly, attentive, and always aware of all the details to fully enjoy the experience.
Get Your Guide does not provide the ticket to bypass the ticket booth inside the museum. We had to wait a long time to get the tickets at the counter. It is not very helpful if we cannot skip the line.
Bobby was beyond expectations. Wonderful tour of the city from a knowledge, delightful guide. Thank you!
