How to Become a New York City Tour Guide

GANYC Board member Jeremy Wilcox was among the guides interviewed for The City NY's piece "How to Become a New York City Tour Guide".

The article explores how the NYC government legally defines a tour guide, the licensing and exam process to become a legal guide in the city, what it takes to be a successful guide in a crowded industry, and more.

Remember: It is essential when hiring a guide in New York to hire a vetted, licensed guide. Another reason to hire a GANYC guide!
