Big Apple Greeter
February 28, 2011

We are from Australia and in October 2010 my husband, son & I stayed in New York for 3 days and had the priviege of having a volunteer from Big Apple Greeter show us around New York. This experience far exceeded my expectations and we got to see a lot of New York that we otherwise would not have seen. The volunteer was very knowledgable and we learnt heaps of stuff about New York which we otherwise would not have known if we were on our own. Also got to see some different residential areas when we side-tracked off the normal tourist path.

It certainly was the best way to see New York from a locals perspective

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being a visitor to New York and having a volunteer show us the city.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't make any changes at this stage, as I am very happy how everything was done.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & We had the opportunity to catch a train to South Ferry which is at the end of Manhattan Island then slowly walked back up the island. We saw where the World Trade Centre was, Wall Street, Chinatown, etc.
