Providing those who take my tours with information about the history of the community.

Found it on the internet when I did a search for tour guides in NYC.

How has GANYC helped you and your business?

I recently attended my first meeting and learned a lot about GANYC -- met some other guides and we exchanged cards.

What's your advice or Tour Guide tip you love to share to people visiting New York?

Walk the streets and soak up the atmosphere. And have a tour guide give you information you'd never find out on your own.
