The Guides Association of New York City is New York City’s professional tourist guides association. All GANYC members are licensed by the New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Pro-tection. GANYC is a nonprofit 501(c)6 volunteer organization whose members are mostly independ-ent contractors that work in all phases of the guiding industry, from conducting private tours, to working for local, national and international tour operators including the double-decker bus compa-nies and destination management companies; and local cultural institutions. GANYC guides are site-specific and introduce and unveil New York to millions of visitors and locals each year. GANYC is not an employment agency; however, it assists tour operators, destination management companies, tourists and others with finding qualified professional licensed guides for tours. GANYC does not charge a fee for its services.
