We booked a two hour private tour to see the highlights of the Met. Maite our guide was so knowledgeable and personable. It was a completely different experience than trying to visit a museum on your own. Her stories of Egypt were fascinating and she made paintings that we wouldn't have given a second glance to come alive. Book through Art Smart and you won't regret it. I have visited NYC probably two dozen times in the past few years and our tour with Maite ranks in the Top 3 of everything we have seen and done.

What a great evening!
Feb 2019 • Couples
We had a guided tour with Senta from Artsmart at the Met on a Friday evening (highly recommended as the museum was literally empty). Senta was able to adjust perfectly to our level of art understanding and gave us a fantastic tour. Very insightful and at the same time highly entertaining. Senta told us the amazing stories that lie beneath selected pieces of art and galleries. Totally recommendable!

I can say that without this experience, the visit to the Met would have not been the same.
Our tour guide, Whitney, was very inviting and engaging. Gave us a new perspective on the art collection and helped us understand so much more about what we were seeing thus making the experience that much more rewarding. I booked this tour as a present for my wife and she was so excited. The time flew by! Something that doesn't happen often (at lest to me) when I visit museums. We even chose to skip the wine reception and continue enjoying the exhibits.
Highly recommended!

The best four hours we've ever spent at any museum!
Nov 2018 • Friends
NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art is a vast depository of art from every part of the world and every era of human civilization. We started at ancient Egypt, then Rome and Greece, then reviewed the creation of Impressionism. Our guide, Maite, was friendly, had a great educational and professional background and covered lots of territory without appearing to hurry anything.

Without her guidance we could never have covered nearly as much art, would not have had the benefit of her insight, couldn't have enjoyed the visit nearly as much as we did.

The Met is a wonderful and great institution, but it can be an overwhelming prospect when you are in the giant entryway wondering where to start. We spent the previous day at the American Museum of Natural History, which I have visited several times before. The guided day at the Met was far more enjoyable as we didn't have to wonder where to go nor how to get there, because Maite knew our next stop.

She also knew the history of most items we discussed, often could discuss how they were created and the biography of the artists. I arranged the tour online not long after we booked our suite and airfare into the city. Everything was great!

Wedding party tour
We booked a last minute tour for our small wedding party, many of whom had never visited New York. Art Smart was wonderful, arranging everything to fit our not-quite-fixed wedding day schedule. They arranged for us to have lunch and a champagne toast at the private Balcony Lounge and everything went very smoothly. The tour itself was very interesting and professional. Our guide, Maite, was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the subjects we covered. She made the tour very engaging, even for people who don't normally visit museums. She was very accommodating and covered subjects that were requested during tour, even things she herself was not an expert in. Overall, Maite managed to keep the interest of a diverse group. This tour was a very positive experience, and the company is very professional, with amazing service. I highly recommend Art Smart for your tour.
