Jeff Dobins was a five star guide for the Met Museum of Art. I have hired private guides in China, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia and Spain, He was one of the best. He was full of enthusiasm and definitely tailored our tour to our interests and needs. I still remember so much of what he told us about the history and culture of the art that we saw. He personalized the tour with little stories from personal experiences. i was in NYC with a girl friend for the weekend. This is money well spent,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you both and exploring the masterpieces at the Met with you. I hope the rest of your time in NYC was wonderful. Thanks again.

I was glad we booked this tour. Jeff showed us New York more than I can imagine in one day. It was so relaxed and not rushed, considering we toured with my children aged 9,7 & 4. Jeff even kindly agreed to adjust our meeting time from 0900am to 1000am due to our late arrival in New York. Despite the lack of sleep we had a fantastic day. We didn't just take photos but learned interesting facts about the places we visited. I highly recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure exploring NYC with you and your family (I always enjoy sharing the city's wonders with smart, perceptive kids). I hope you had a wonderful trip.

Jeff is a pro at what he does. He shared tons of information with us, paced the whole day so we ended at the time and place we needed to be, and offered tips for the rest of our stay. The tour was interesting and tailored to us. Well done!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for touring with me and the kind words. I enjoyed meeting you and exploring the city together. (It was fun to see you again at the Met museum.) I hope you had a wonderful visit to NYC.

Two of us visited NYC to learn about its history. We did research as to which guides had the most historical knowledge. We found Jeff and booked him for an afternoon. We made a great choice. He has wide, deep knowledge of NYC history. We toured the Plaza Hotel, Central Park, the Library, Grand Central Terminal, and several other stops along the way. In each location Jeff told interesting historical stories. We had a great time and definitely recommend him to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and exploring NYC's historic sites together.

Tour: Experience the Statue of Liberty With a Private Guide, New York City, New York, United States
Date: Apr 13/19

Jeff gives a thorough and interesting tour of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. My husband and I had a great day with him. He is interesting to talk to. We had a lot in common with him as we are all avid world travelers. In addition to his great organizational skills he was spot on about where to eat and directed us to the 9 11 museum when our tour was finished. Thanks for a great day, Jeff and have a great time on your upcoming travels.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I truly enjoyed meeting you both and exploring the Statue & Ellis Island with you. Thanks for the kind words and touring with me.

We had a great day with Jeff in New York, he was in our hotel perfectly on time and guided us through the city whilst giving us a lot of background information. We have experienced New York in a different way now, so much better and so relaxed if you do not have to think on how to get from A to B. The cherry on the cake was the visit to the grand central terminal, where Jeff showed us some nice secrets about the station. All in all a perfect day to remember and I would recommend Jeff to everyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. I enjoyed touring NYC with you and your family. I hope you have a wonderful visit to the city.

Jeff was an excellent guide, providing a wealth of information on all that we saw as well as the museum's history. He was friendly and attentive, asking if there were particular things we would like to see. We never felt hurried or rushed. With the vastness of the museum (which may be a little overwhelming to the first time visitor like us), we highly recommend taking a tour with Jeff. We truly enjoyed our Met experience with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. for touring with me and for the kind words. I enjoyed meeting you and exploring the Met’s treasures with you, particularly the Impressionists. I hope you had a wonderful visit to NYC. Thanks again, Jeff

We (my mom, 4 kids ages 17-11 and I) had the best day touring the city with Jeff! We walked through Central Park, subway to Brooklyn, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, to Greenwich Village, lunch at Joe's, Littly Italy, Chinatown and Grand Central station. A wonderful way to see NYC, loved the stories and history!

Personalised tour of New York which I highly recommended if you have limited time in New York. Our guide Jeff was superb. He is knowledgeable and knows everything about New York. Jeff met us at the Penn station and gave us an overview of the places that we would visit. We visited all the places we wanted to see at our own pace. My family and I had and enjoyable day out in New York and learned some interesting facts about all the places we visited. Wished we had more time in New York. Thanks Jeff.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure meeting you and your family, and I enjoyed exploring NYC with you. I hope the rest of your trip was wonderful.

I had booked Jeff D. for a 3 hour tour of the Metropolitan Art Museum. Jeff met my wife and I promptly at the designated area. We spoke to one an other and created a "game plan" for the Museum, what we liked as far as artists, time periods and our level of knowledge regarding art and other museums we had visited. Jeff was extremely knowledgable at all levels, each exhibit he would highlight a particular piece or collection, and explain it's importance. I will contact Jeff for future tours. Thank you Jeff.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words! It was a pleasure meeting you and exploring the magnificent Met together.
