We had a GREAT tour guide who was able to change the tour as we went along to meet our needs. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It's very helpful to have a private guide to make the most use of limited time. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend the 2-hour tour of the Whitney. The museum is awesome, but with eight floors you can spend days there. If you're not an art aficionado you won't really know what you're looking at and it's relevance. Having a tour gives you a...More
