Alison Martin currently works as a tour guide with Go New York Tours in New York City. In this position, she provides historical information as well as entertainment to individuals participating in the company’s double-decker bus tours, which operate on a hop-on, hop-off basis. She is additionally tasked with managing individual passenger needs, monitoring the passenger ticketing process, and overseeing other customer services. Her position requires excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as she interacts with a number of tourists on a daily basis. In this way, Alison Martin is less a tour guide and more a brand ambassador for the city of New York.
Alison Martin studied studio art and communications at Manhattanville College. When she is not working for Go New York Tours or participating in charitable activities, she enjoys visiting the city’s many museums and art galleries. Her favorite artists include the French impressionists Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, and Degas.
