be explored, has had special training or education in that specialty whether it is horticulture or history, art or architecture, and can provide a personalized insight that general tours often lack. Most of our guide associates are working professionals in specialties such as fine arts, design, or the performing arts. They are thoroughly familiar with the tour itineraries, having participated in creating the tours.
Our licensed guide associates are available for tours in Dutch, French, German, Italian or Spanish. With advanced notice, A FRIEND IN NEW YORK™ can arrange for licensed tour guides fluent in Chinese (Mandarin), Hungarian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish or Ukrainian.
