Walking Tour Guide

Would you love to meet people from around the world? Do you love to show people around New York City? Everyday, we offer walking tours to see and experience New York City. This is the perfect opportunity to meet people from around the world.

Daily Walking Tours meet at our beautiful Victorian mansion on the Upper West Side. From meeting location, we offer tours to Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and all types of locations in the five boroughs of New York City. If you have a specific area of expertise whether it be a neighborhood, type of food, art, or anything else, you can propose a custom tour.

Note: All volunteers must be punctual and able to commit to regular attendance over a 8-week term.

Volunteers will:

  • Give weekly or multi-weekly tours

  • Foreign language ability is a plus but not a requirement

  • Leaders can request tours for specific locations in the five boroughs

  • Serve as representatives of New York to a global audience

  • Help develop your public speaking and communication skills

  • Receive volunteer hours that can be applied towards free hostel stays anywhere in our network of over 50 hostels in the USA

  • Be eligible for volunteer trainings, appreciation events and more

If you’re interested, please contact activities.newyork@hiusa.org for an application and more information.

We’re looking for people who love to travel! HI New York is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to youth travel in New York, and the largest hostel in North America.
