Free Celebrity-Led Tours in New York City

Free in NYC: Celebrity-Led City Tours

The Big Apple Greeter Group is spicing up its 18-year-old all-volunteer program with free celebrity-led tours. Typically, tourists are paired up with New York residents who show visitors the city they know — not the guide-book version.

They'll recommend what to order at classic eateries and take you through their favorite neighborhoods, and the celebrity-led tours essentially offer the same arrangement. Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber took a couple from Colorado to his favorite Vietnamese restaurant, and Sopranos star Dominic Chianese has plans to take a tourist to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.

Would you prefer a tour led by a regular New Yorker, or by a celebrity?

What would be cool would be different city tours led by celebs that were originally from that a tour of Cleveland with Jerry Springer or something like that. But just having a random celeb giving tours of NYC would be kind of stupid, IMHO.

It would be neat to go on these tours to meet the celebrity but I think I would get a better sense of the city with a tour guide who's just a regular person, unless the celeb is originally from that city.
