Best decision of our trip
I was in NYC to celebrate my good friends birthday and she really wanted to spend some time at the Met, but we didn't have all day. Thanks to the great reviews on Trip Advisors we decided to book a Museum Hack tour. Best decision of the trip so far. We met up with Frank by the pharaoh and the fun began. Frank dodged the crowds like a native New Yorker, and soon had us standing in front of a beautiful painting by Lorenzo Lotto: Venus and Cupid. Normally I would have looked at this painting, thought "oh beautiful" and moved along. But Frank took the time to explain the subtext in a way that would make the recently departed Hugh Hefner proud. From there we zig zagged through galleries, viewed art and artifacts, played games, and were the envy of all the people on the boring tours. Finally, Frank claimed he was no expert, but I think I learned more about art, having fun, chasing your dream(even if it includes Lion's in Mexico) in two hours than I ever did in my art appreciation course in college. I can't wait to book a tour of our local museum!

Awesome
I cannot recommend this group enough! I took a date on the VIP tour of the Met and loved it. Anna and Kylie were so much fun, hilarious, and very knowledgeable. I simply cannot say enough positive things about the experience.

Fascinating
After several failed attempts and cancellations (due to flu attacks) my husband and I finally went on the MET VIP tour. I must mention that Christine at the help desk was very empathetic and changed our tickets last minute - twice.
Based on reviews and friends recommendations we expected a great tour and were not disappointed. Everything was perfectly organized from the first minute to the last, Scott and Jim, our hilariously entertaining guides made sure that there were no dull moments. We learned a lot of fun facts and background stories about countless pieces on exhibit and even the museum building itself that most visitors (including regulars) will never hear.
Absolutely loved the tour and shall return!

Awesome time!
My friend and I took our other friend out in NYC for the day for her birthday. One of the things we did was the museum hack at the MET. It was so much fun and we had the best tour guide...Frank! He made us laugh and kept the tour interesting and upbeat! Love, love, love Frank and will ask for him again the next time we do a hack. The birthday girl also had a wonderful time, which was the goal!

Scott was a fantastic guide! Fun and fascinating un-highlights tour!
My daughter and I decided to take this tour to learn things you might not find out on a traditional docent tour of the Met. I don’t want to give anything away but it did not disappoint! Great way to spend a couple of hours in the winter in NYC and see and learn things at the Met even native New Yorkers might not know about.

Highly recommended
We had the best time on our Museum Hack tour at the American Museum of Natural History with Zak. He was super informative, engaging and very funny. We left knowing so many secret facts and info about the museum that you would NEVER hear from a normal guide. I highly recommend this tour for both museum lovers, and not so much lovers. So much fun! Thank you Zak! Really looking forward to booking my next tour with Museum Hack!

I learned more during this tour than I have in years on my own!
I attended Museum Hack’s Badass B$!&ches of the Met tour, and it was AMAZING. I've visited The Met at least a dozen times and I saw parts of it on this tour I had never seen before and I definitely learned more about the art, particularly some "hidden gems" and really interesting stories about female artists. Our tour guide was the fabulous Anna--I swear I'd follow her through every museum in this city.

Mangos Dropped From the Sky!
Elizabeth, our Bad Ass B$&@$& tour guide was a great story teller, an energetic and knowledgeable tour guide and just lots of fun!

This tour was a great way to see The Met, stay out of the “willie” zone and enjoy some of the pieces of art and hear great stories about them.

I would take a Museum Hack tour again. It is a different way to experience a museum!

BAB Tour SO fun!
For my friend's birthday gift, a few of us treated her to the BAB Tour at the Met. It was SO fun and our guide, Sara, was amazing. It was the perfect size group, the right pace (walking around enough without getting fatigued), the appropriate mix of witty commentary with facts and a light fun attitude. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon and I have been raving to friends all over to do the tour. So much fun - I HIGHLY recommend (esp with Sara because she was hilarious, genuine, caring and witty - she herself was a BAB!).

Couldn’t have been better!
Evan is the perfect guide. He knows so much, but doesn’t lecture you. His choices for dumplings were amazing. We had the best time. We made our own choices, with his guidance and ate a LOT ! A+++++++
Dumpling Tour of NYC’s Chinatown
Great Tour
Evan provides a fact filled and enjoyable experience in the heart of dumpling country. He is also a great resource for anyone not from the area looking to make the most of a trip. Would recommend :)
