I am so happy and excited to introduce you to the newest additions to our BUC tour guide staff! They are all incredibly energetic and full of personality and all of them have wonderful theatre resumes and are ready to share their personal experiences with you on the sidewalks! I hand-picked each of them from personal references and have had a great time getting them through the NYC tour-guide license process and teaching them the different stories and facts on our tour.
Every tour guide in NYC has to obtain a tour guide license which states they "know what they are talking about". To obtain the license you have to pass a 150 question test about random and obscure facts about the five boroughs of New York City. Needless to say it's a doozy! I'm proud to say that every single one of our guides passed the test with flying colors!
You can check out each new tour guide's personal page to read their bios, see production photos from their career and other wacky photos by clicking on each of their names below. I've included a little blurb about each of them so you can get to know them even better.
See you on the sidewalks!
