National Tourism Week (May 7 -13, 2017)
The Guides Association of NYC, in cooperation with NYC & Company, is celebrating National Tourism Week with a week of free tours offered by our member guides. National Tourism Week was established by a U.S. congressional resolution in 1983, and serves to champion the power of our vital industry. Travel and tourism professionals from across the nation work throughout the week to promote the impactful contributions their travel markets and organizations make to the U.S. economy.
