What an amazing experience. An absolute treat. This is a unique opportunity to really get to know New york. Those little nooks and crannies that arent on the tourist map. Those gems of informations that only real locals know. Our greeter made us feel totally at ease and took us on a 4 hour tour of down town and Greenwich village. We were met at reception dead on time and we were asked if we would prefer to walk or ride. we visited buildings, old theatres and land marks, got talks on the history of famous buildings and amazing pieces of architecture, we went down side streets to see old and historic restaurants, shops etc. We took the subway to greenwich Village and walked the gorgeous streets stopping at famous residence and tiny bistros being treated to insites from past and present. I wouldnt have missed it for the world and it really made our holiday.Our greeter kindly dropped us at a wonderful little xmas market making sure we new our way back. If you get a chance make sure you make a booking and I would do this well in advance. let this be the first thing you book.

There are none. it was very easy to book our tour and we were called (and I live in the UK) a week before we arrived to confirm our requirements and to give us details of our Greeter to ensure our safety. Our greeter arrived on time and was totally professional. He wouldnt even accept a cup of coffee as a thankyou.

Travelled to NYC on CHristmas Eve 2010. We were met by our Greeter, Donald, who quickly oriented us to the city's transport systems, showed us important landmarks, and gave us important tips as to how to get along.

Going above and beyond the call of duty, our greeter acted on a passing
comment I made about the World Trade Centre, and took us to the site, and St Paul's Chapel. After doing this, and acting on another comment that I needed to find a church near our hotel for CHristmas, our greeter promptly showed us a church near the UN.

We cannot speak highly enough about this service. It got us ready for a week of sightseeing and made us feel like we belonged.

My best friend and I visited NYC in June of 2010. We signed up for a tour with a Big Apple Greeter guide. His name is Doug and he was wonderful. He knew everything there was to know about Manhattan and he shared his enthusiasm and knowledge openly and without rushing us. We three spent three and half hours together exploring. I'd like to thank Big Apple Greeter for arranging such a service for out-of-towners like us. Having the Big Apple Greeter organization is a HUGE benefit to NYC. It really brings out the best in people and makes NYC more welcoming. We have communicated with Doug through email and shared photos of our trip. We recommend using the Big Apple Greeter to anyone contemplating traveling to NYC in the near future.

Four of us (plus our 1.5 year old) visited New York in 2008 for my 40th Birthday.
Our Big Apple greeter was a wonderful woman who showed us how to negotiate the underground (subway) with a buggy (stroller). She was very knowledgeable and courteous. We will be visiting again this year (2011)
and look forward to meeting another greeter!
Excellent service everyone who visits New York should arrange for a greeter as it sets you up for what to expect and how the city works.

My best friend and I visited New York for the first time in August of 2009. Our Big Apple Greeter was a wonderful woman from Brooklyn Heights and she showed us a side of New York that we would have otherwise not seen. Her friendliness and knowledge added another layer to our New York experience. I look forward to returning to New York in the future with my husband and I'm hoping we will have the opportunity to meet another Big Apple Greeter.
