So informative and interesting.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Met. Our guide Isabelle was friendly and an excellent teacher. We learned a lot about both art and history. The Met is enormous, as is its collection and her knowledge and ability to share information was top notch. We would gladly take another tour with Isabelle anytime. Also, the context travel customer service team was pleasant and professional as we had to make a couple of changes regarding the date and time of our tour.
Great tour through the highlights of the Met collection. We would have been lost without our guide.
