Evaluation of my American Museum of Natural History tour for family

Here are the comments:

Great!  Saw everything we wanted.  Very knowledgeable.  So fun, kids loved it.

We customized the tour to make sure we saw the dinosaur mummy, lots of other dinosaurs, sea life.

And I showed them something special to me, a fossil that I found when I was seven that I sent to the Museum of Natural History.

I worked in sights from Night at the Museum, such as Dum Dum, the Easter Island head; Dexter, the Capuchin Monkey; the Ostrich. 

I also got us into the hands on lab for kids.

I have been honing my tours of this museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but  that one is mainly for adults.  

I'm developing a tour about the links between the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.

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!"

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.  ...
