On a global level, I am a Certified International Tour Manager as well as a Hospitality and Hotel Tourism Management Certific holder..
On the local level, I am a Tour Guide who is licenced in NYC and in DC. I was born and raised in Manhattan where I lead groups and individuals through various "hoods":
Ellis Island, Liberty Island, Wall Street-9/11 Memorial Park, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Lincoln Center, World Trade Center, Museum Mile and Harlem (where I got my BA degree from Barnard College-Columbia University). Although most of my tours are in Manhattan (downtown, midtown and uptown) I have also conducted several tours in the remaining 4 boros: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
Furthermore, since I am licensed in New York City and Washington, DC, I conduct several bus tours where I compare the NY sites to the Washington, DC sites (as we visit both cities on 2 separate days).
Since I am also a Certified International Tour Director/Manager, I conduct several Over the Road Tours (OTRs) to destinations like Niagara Falls, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and Washington DC.
My Market Research background helps me quickly design a customized fun tour that concentrates on the audience’s areas of interest. For a private tour, I conduct an extensive phone consultation or email correspondence, so I can plan and customize the tour accordingly. Is you group interested in Art, Architecture, History, Movie Sites? Anything else I should include in our tour?
Since I am bilingual in Greek and in English and I am fluent in French, I can conduct my walking, bus, subway or taxi tours in English, Greek or French.
I also work with students, seniors and corporate incentive groups!
I can be reached at 646-709-8165 or please email me at NYCindyTours@gmail.com so we can start our memorable and exciting New York adventure!!! I also invite you to visit my web site: www.NYCindyTours.com Thank You!!!

Please note that I just noticed that the last paragraph on this page was inserted on my website without my permission or any prior knowledge to GANYC's unfortunate verbiage.
Plesse understand that I am very surprised with this offensive and insensitive insertion. I have been brought up with NOT using words like "entitled" and this insertion does not reflect MY true support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
My apologies if the reader found these words like "entitled " as startling as I was when I just read my own profile. I am in the promise of investigating the reason this paragraph(that has nothing to do with me) was inserted here. Once again, I sincerely apologize for GANYC's discomfort this may have caused!
Thank you for still considering my services in spite of GANYC's below insertion on my profile!
