All that and Dim Sum
Evan did a nice job finding some hole in the wall spots for cheap yet tasty dumplings. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. Not much walking required at all but a big appetite is a must.

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!

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!).

Fab dumplings!
Evan was a great host and introduced us to three dumpling restaurants in NYC - all within a short walk of each other. From traditional pork & chive pot stickers and pancakes through to a full range of dim sum at the famous Nom Wah Tea Parlor, it was a great insider guide. Evan also very generously shared other tips and ideas for our stay in NYC - and very patiently accommodated our 7 month old baby, who joined us for the tour. Thanks Evan!

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.

Yummy
A fabulous short tour of dumpling tasting with Evan. Not only did we eat the most amazing dumplings we got to spend time with Evan a local with great knowledge of the city. He gave us tips on where to go that we had not heard of. and we definately will be trying those dumplings again. Not only would i recommend this tour i will be using like a local again when i travel.

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!

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.

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 :)

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+++++++
