  • New York: Best of the Metropolitan Museum 2-Hour Tour

    5. New York: Best of the Metropolitan Museum 2-Hour Tour

    Avoid wandering around the Metropolitan Museum in New York lost and confused, and discover the highlights of the museum's huge collection with an expert guide. Tour in small groups of no more than 15 participants (for a more intimate experience), following a carefully-planned itinerary that starts in Ancient Egypt. See perfectly preserved Ancient Egyptian tombs, and tiny dioramas that show what life was like in the times of Tutankhamun. Learn about their burial rituals in the Egyptian mummies area, and see the Met’s mascot “William.” Continue to the Temple of Dendur, and discover a temple of Ancient Egypt smack in the middle of Central Park! Your guide will provide all the gossip about this and other exhibits, such as how Jackie O procured the Temple of Dendur for the Met; tales about the armor of Britain’s infamous King Henry VIII; and how some think the Antioch Chalice may be “The Ho...

    I think the MET was the best museum we've visited in NY and it's huge. You really need to spend a full day in it. Having a guide for a 2h tour provides you with a quick way to see the highlights as well as learn to orientate within the vast museum. Our guide in particular was very pleasant and with many stories to tell about the things she presented to us. Things that are not included in most book guides. She could answer our question or simply say so when she didn't know the answer. It's a difficult job to choose what to show, but she did a great job.
