Hi, I’m Mitch.
I write guidebooks, lead trips for people around the world, and train new tour guides. I also speak at companies and conferences on a variety of travel-related topics. Below you’ll find descriptions of what I get up to.
I’ve written four city guidebooks, available through TGR. They’re geared towards helping tour guides (and anyone in the travel industry) get up to speed quickly on learning only the most interesting stories, trivia and fun facts that groups want to hear.
Local NYC Expert & Guide
For 17 years I’ve created special experiences & private walking tours around NYC. I specialize in creating unforgettable experiences tying together locals, food, and the best storytelling there is.
International Tour Director
I lead groups of adults and students around the world, principally across the U.S. and Europe. I organize private tours and also contract with the leading tour operators of the world.
My side-passions include photography and composing classical music. My photos have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, The New Yorker, and LA Times, amongst others. My music has been performed for ensembles around the world. Most recently I premiered my second opera, Les Trois Mousquetaires, at the 2017 Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice.
