Review for Big Apple Greeter, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer Big Apple Greeter for 4 years and it is truly a rewarding experience for both the volunteers and the visitors. For the visitors, they can to experience a day through the eyes of a New Yorker, appreciate the little things about the city not found in a guidebook, and get help navigating a bustling city. I'm confident that when they return home, the time they spent with one of our volunteers was a big highlight of their trip. And I know that firsthand, having been a visitor myself as well when I visited Buenos Aires and signed up for the sister program there. As a volunteer, the programs is very rewarding as we get to meet people from all over the world and share our love for New York with them.

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

many rewarding times spent with visitors

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

figure out a way for it to grow even bigger

Role:  Volunteer & Guided visitors to New York, and showed them great places to see in the CIty not always found in guidebooks.
