Manhattanite here just saying...I've traveled and toured all over and Giovanni's grand tour of the Met was the absolute best tour I've ever taken. As we walked from gallery to gallery Giovanni ensured we saw the highlights and captivated us with some juicy background on the best the Met has to offer. You can tell this talented young man loves his work. I'll be taking more of his tours in the coming months. I highly recommend this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm blushing... Thank You. I look forward to showing you my perspective on our shared city ;)

Geovanni gives such a high energy, information dense, fun overview of the Metropolitan Museum of Art...so much so that this was my SECOND time taking the same tour with him!
George KarlssonUnited States
Geovanni was outstanding, both as a Met guide and a person. He was very flexible in customizing our tour to focus on the Michelangelo drawings and provided us with compelling highlights of other unique exhibits in the museum. We highly recommend Geovanni.

Geovanni was an excellent guide, high energy with great knowledge of the subject matter. We would recommend him if you are looking to explore "The MET". He took us into all the various sections of the museum plus made sure we could use the elevators around the museum. He had very good stories about different items, explaining the history, background and why various items were in the museum. This was just the type of guide we were looking for as we only had 1/2 a day to spend in "The MET".
La Mejor decisión conocer el MET en NYC, de la mano de Giovanni, conoce TODO el Museo y se enfoca tanto en lo más relevante como en tus deseos y preferencias, ameno, educado y muy divertido todo el recorrido, no se hace nada pesado, en realidad fue EXCELENTE el servicio y la experiencia, MUCHAS GRACIAS¡¡

Geovanni was great. We had a small tour of 4 people. He kept a great pace and provided us stories on the Met's treasures that we would have never found on our own. Highly recommended!

Visiting the Metropolitan can be intimidating and a difficult task if alone with headphones ... not the case with Geovanni .... he gives you a very thorough overview of the entire museum in 2 hours and half . He makes fun and interesting.... gets us involved in every section ..... I will continue to visit this museum with him . This has been my favorite visit to this museum after many

It was a pleasure to tour the Met with Geovanni! Even though I had already been to the Met time, my children and I usually get "stuck" in a few favorite wings, and never really managed to really explore the Met. Under Geovanni dynamic and fun direction, we covered the breadth of the museum, had time to admire a few favorites and enjoyed very much his many stories about the pieces of art, and how they came about. Highly recommend to Met novices and veterans alike!
Virginia SorrowUnited States
We spent 3 1/2 hours in the Met with Geovanni and enjoyed every minute. I had just completed an art course and sent him a list of paintings I would like to see. With the extra hour, he customized our tour to include these pieces. Great guide!
Laurie BayneUnited States
Geovanni was our tour guide for the Met. There were 10 of us in the group. He was there waiting for us and asked what specific things we would like to see. He laid out the tour plan and took us on a delightful and informative tour of the museum. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of a huge museum. Geovanni was very personable and we would love to go with him again on our next visit to NYC.
Pedro VillaUnited States
Geovanni took us thru all the wings of the MET effortlessly and highlighted pieces that you would ordinarily walk by. He was fantastic!
Debra CuadrosUnited States
We had very limited hours to visit as much as possible of this wonderful city on weekend of September 11th. After a quick email and conversation with Geovanni, he crafted the perfect agenda for us. Note that this was extraordinarily complex because I had unexpectedly hurt my ankle and was confined largely to a scooter with strict instructions to stay off my foot. He designed a trip that left us in love with the city and considering him all but one of our family.

Amazing! We loved seeing the hidden treasures of the Met. Geovanni was delightful and so knowledgeable!
Rick IveyUnited States
Our group loved the custom "Highlights of the Met" that Geovanni put together and led for us. As a guide, he was not only knowledgeable, but personable and fun, and we felt we got more than we paid for. Highly recommended - among the best we've experienced anywhere! THANK YOU, GEOVANNI!
Kathleen JewellUnited States
Geovanni was outstanding as a guide. His knowledge of the museum is phenomenal and his ability to pace the tour perfectly for our abilities was so helpful. We all four talked about what a great afternoon we had. We highly recommend Geovanni for this tour.
Sharon McCrackenUnited States
Giovanni is a wonderful guide. Informative and fun, my 13 year old granddaughter really enjoyed his tours as did I. We had 3 tours with Giovanni and I would highly recommend him
Jeffrey SeabournUnited States
Great tour. The Met is massive...for scale it is 4 times larger than the Louvre museum in Paris! Obviously, this type of brief overview tour is meant to give you a glimpse of what is possible to see at the Met. You will likely want to come back same day or another day to take a "deeper dive" to some of your favorite locations in the museuem. Geo did a great job of navigating the museum and this is a huge benefit! No need to stare at a map...just follow Geo around the museum and be amazed!
Frances TakenUnited Kingdom
Giovanni is probably the most patient man on the planet and extremely knowledgeable. He answered all questions set, changed the itinerary to suit us, did not get phased by sudden alterations and showed us the most amazing things we would never had seen on our own. If you would like a guide who is not only knowledgable but also cares about his subject, his clients and is very polite then Giovanni is definitely the right person for you. We had a fantastic time. Thank you Giovanni.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your kind words are what inspires me to be the guide I am. Thank You so much for helping make my job a great one! Warm Regards, Geovanni R.
John DashnerUnited States
Great tour just as advertised. Fast pace view of the Met, seeing and learning about the numerous masterpieces in an enormous museum. One word would describe the museum and tour: WOW!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tell everyone how big and impossible it is to do on their own! Most people simply have no idea. Thank You for the one word description ;)
Melody KoenigUnited States
My daughter (16) and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Geovanni. The MET is so large, it was great to have someone who could guide us through in 2.5 hours. Geovanni was right, that is just enough time. We thought we might go back to look, but were really 'done' afterwards. He was very knowledgeable with fun facts that we would have never known. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad you two got to do it right. Your daughter was very knowledgeable and it was truly a pleasure to see her enthusiasm. Happy Holidays!
Laura BlackUnited States
We saw so much---he was wonderful! Will use him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for allowing me to show you and your friends the museum. My way! ;)
Julie EllisUnited States
You cannot go wrong with Geovanni as your guide! Smart, personable - he knows this museum. Well worth the money and time! We learned and saw so much. Never could have done this on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You absolutely could have done that on your own! It only took me a few hundred practice runs ;)
Jesus SiozonUnited Kingdom
We had a great time with Geovanni. He showed us the best of the Met and managed to keep his tour fun for the whole family. He even waited for quite a bit when we came in late. I highly recommend him as the Met can be a daunting task for the inexperienced. And great value for money too!
Joan JarvisUnited States
Excellent tour. Geovanni is a wealth of information about the Met, even if you have been many times before. He showed us several areas and pieces we had never seen before. And, he recommended a wonderful place for lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed the unprecedented visit from someone who had already been so many times before. It was a pleasure to show you the treasured collection in a whole new way. I'm also glad to hear your lunch was wonderful. Cheers and thank you.
Geovanni gave us what he promised: a whole tour of the highlights of the Metropolitan. But also a lot more: amusing stories 'behind the scenes', interesting details, and with an enthusiasm we've rarely encountered. He's highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I never know what to say to these comments. But I want to say thank you for choosing to spend a few hours with me in NYC. It was a pleasure.
This was the highlight of our trip to NYC. All members of our family (including 2 teenage boys) gave this tour top rating. Geovanni is very knowledgeable (and patient!) His enthusiasm for this incredible institution is infectious. The time just flew by while we were with him. Thanks so much, Geovanni.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, Thank You. It was a pleasure to have such an engaged family where I was able to give it my all! Once again thank you for the kind words.
My son and my husband had an excellent tour to the MET, museum in New York with Giovanni. It was great for them to have an Spanish speaking tour guide. My son 10 years old was able to repeat to me everything that he learned with Giovanni. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure sharing my favorite museum in NYC with your family. Con suerte nos vemos otra vez. ;)
Jason GreenblattUnited States
Geovanni is a fantastic guide and made the tour thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable. I like that we have similar artistic tastes and I also discovered new facts I never would have known if it weren't for him. I will definitely recommend Geovanni to my friends when they travel to NYC and I'll also rebook with him again upon my return this spring. Thank YOU very much for such a memorable tour!
