Big Apple Greeter is a non-profit organization that matches visitors with friendly and enthusiastic New Yorkers who are happy to share the city they love with families, friends, and individuals traveling solo. A visit with a Greeter leaves a lasting impression of the city, the warmth of its people, and the energy and diversity of its neighborhoods, which each visitor carries forever and communicates to others.
Big Apple Greeter’s services are available FREE OF CHARGE, and there is a NO TIPPING POLICY. To help us continue providing this unique welcoming service, please consider making a donation. The New Yorkers who serve as Greeters are all volunteers, come from varied backgrounds and can welcome visitors in over 20 languages. Greeters and visitors are matched according to language, neighborhoods requested, and interests, when possible.
Big Apple Greeter welcomes all visitors without regard to race, color, creed, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status or disability.
