Another Metropolitan Museum of Art tour review

5 Stars  * * * * *

"Met Tour
Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We went the weekend before Christmas and I was very thankful I booked it. Busiest weekend, lots of people. We didn’t have to wait in line. Worth every penny. We were guided around based on our interests and what we wanted to see. The tour guide was very knowledgeable not only about the Met but, fun NYC facts! We would totally do this again. Thank you for a great experience!"

Private Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City

By J.

Great tour ... what a wonderful way to bypass lines, start enjoying the museum immediately with your own knowledgeable guide.

Jared focused on our interests and educated us on the art we were passionate about. A loved the ease in which we moved around the museum and the personal touch from our guide. The only way to see this incredible museum!

Five Star Review for NYC Tour

Five Stars

Reviewed August 4, 2016

Fantastic Private NYC Tour with Jared G.

Our family of four (including two teens) had never set foot in New York prior to our recent nine hour layover. ... it was an afternoon/evening layover ... so we arranged a private tour that covered the highlights of the city. Well, the limited highlights you can see in 5ish hours.

... our tour guide was truly superb! He completely customized the agenda and made adjustments as we went along to be sure we could visit our preferred areas/sights. He was incredibly knowledgeable and just plain fun to hang out with for the day.

Vacation time is truly precious and you'll be immensely gratified if you spend a portion of it with ... Jared G.

Wedding Tour leads to an Arthur Ave Little Italy tour

Hi Jared,

I hope this note finds you well!  

It has been about two years since we last spoke and since you led a private bus tour for my friends and family after my wedding. 

I am not kidding when I tell you that my family still talks about that tour - and it is usually my grandparents from the Bronx and Brooklyn that are the most complimentary of the experience.  Being New Yorkers themselves, they can be a tough crowd but you blew them away!

On a separate note, my mom is celebrating her ____ birthday this year and asked for a NYC "experience".  She has been on your tour, and taken a ... tour of Central Park, but I think she would really love a tour of Arthur Ave, or even Little Italy.  ...

What a wonderful email from a family about their Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour

Dear Jared,
Thank you for a truly memorable tour of NYC--including Lady Liberty, Liberty Island, Ellis Island, and 911 Memorial. You made our day with
you an experience that was both educationally fascinating and FUN!!

Our children, although younger, still talk about our time with you and remember much of what you shared. To catch and keep the attention of
both young and old alike requires skill and character, and we feel you possess each of them in beautiful form.

We genuinely appreciated how you considered our input regarding pacing, timeline, and points of interest throughout the day. Spending a full day together could be overwhelming, but your thoughtfulness in taking necessary breaks and adjust pace to accommodate our family's needs made the day fabulous!

Jared, you are a gifted tour guide, one that NYC should be proud to call their own!

I am sharing below some photos of our lovely day with you.

Thank you again and many blessings to you!!

Respectfully,
The _____ Family

Continuing Education Museum Class Tours

"Thanks Jared!!  Great tour again!  I'll be in touch!"

I did two tours of Public Art in Lower Manhattan for an adult education class' trips to NYC.


Less than 90 minutes and we visited sculptures in the Financial District and the World Trade Center.  Abstract ones like those by Isamu Noguchi, Mark di Suvero, Louise Nevelson, duBuffet, and Fritz Koenig.  We also see more realistic ones by J. Seward Johnson, and the America's Response sculpture near the 9/11 Memorial, as well as a couple by John Quincy Adams Ward of George Washington and Integrity at the New York Stock Exchange.  We also experienced the Oculus building by Calatrava, and Federal Hall.

I wish we had time for the doors of Trinity Church, and the financial district sculptures of the Charging Bull and the Fearless Girl.

Since 2008 have been providing tours for passengers of a river cruise company that provides bus tours for their local visitors.

We see the World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial, and various sights in Midtown and Downtown Manhattan.  I step on their bus.
