We, my fiancé and I, had a magical time at the met on the griffins, goblets, and gold tour. My first time at the Met my fiancé surprised me with a magical tour for my birthday gift. I am convinced all tours should be as magically inspired. Our tour guide, Evan, was witty and warm as she was creatively genius in all things Harry Potter. We had so much fun and the memories will forever be cherished. I can see years of conversations together with my love, “remember on the tour of griffins, goblets, and gold when…”. Thank you for your dedication and magical inspiration!

Our tour of the Met was incredible. With two girls (ages 7 and 11) in tow, Evan kept them interested and engaged going through the Met, finding angels, sketching, and looking at exhibits. They never got bored and made their first visit to a major museum, an engaging, interactive experience. The 11-year-old said that she loved it. I would definitely book another tour with them!
