NY Missed You!

This week marks the long-awaited return of international visitors to the US, kept away by travel bans that lasted nearly 20 months. Tour guides have always worked to serve as ambassadors to our great city, and that was certainly the case yesterday, as the first travelers arrived in our post-vaccine era of travel.

GANYC member Patrick van Rosendaal was at the airport to welcome back these travelers, especially those from his native Belgium. And to hand out some refreshments, as seen here in this Associated Press video.

International visitors can peruse the "Find a Guide" section of this website. We have over 300 guides, many multilingual, ready to help make NYC memories for travelers this holiday season and throughout 2022.

[UPDATE: Patrick's welcome efforts were also covered by this Bloomberg news article.]
