Matthew Baker has been a New Yorker since 1992 and a licensed tour guide since 2005. Having worked in such venerable institutions as the New York Public Library, Saks Fifth Avenue, and FAO Schwarz, he has seen, known, and loved an incredible cross section of New York City cultures. And now, he wants to share them all with you.


Since entering the tourism trade, Matt has served as guide for the Duke University Basketball Team, the legendary Tony Bennett, and a photographer for National Geographic. But it is the countless school groups from around the world that are closest to Matt's heart. "If just one kid decides that, once they graduate, they're coming to New York to live," Matt says, "then I've done my job."
