Learn about any neighborhood for the cost of nothing. – Overview
If you're the kind of tourist who prefers a personable bed-and-breakfast to a generic hotel, this is your kind of experience. Big Apple Greeters is an assemblage of native New Yorkers who love the city so much that they've volunteered their free time to show it off. Your host-for-the-day arrives at your hotel then whisks you off to several neighborhoods by foot, bus or subway. (A free subway pass is part of the package.) It's like taking a walking tour with a knowledgeable friend. And the best part: It's all for free.
All tours are personal and cater to your desires. If you follow fashion, request the Garment District and Soho. If you're into architecture, you might admire the Gothic arches of the Brooklyn Bridge as you walk underneath them. With a native New Yorker by your side, count on personal anecdotes to spice things up.
Carole Tinkler – I can not understand why anyone would not want an Apple Greeter. It was so wonderful being met at the hotel and told, I'll take you wherever you want to go and smiling all the way and spend a 1/2 day roaming New York City!! It is the best thing going. The knowledge they share is wonderful. Talk about a private tour-this is the best!!!!
And it's free, what more could you want?
