The tour was amazing! I booked it not knowing what to expect and loved every second of it. Katie could not possibly have done her job any better. She was engaging and entertaining and it was 100% worth it!! I would recommend people doing the tour get to the Met a good 40 min or so before the tour to make it through the massive lineup outside to get into the museum itself.
