Yesterday after a long travel day, I arrived in New York City with my husband and daughter. This city has been in my bucket list for a long, long time!
Our adventure began with a pleasant surprise. The taxi we arranged to get us to the airport arrived a few minutes early and with a friendly driver! I deliberately booked the cab 15 minutes earlier than required because they usually show up late. I think it is a little sad that on-time and friendly is a bit of wow.
And when we arrived, our cab driver doubled as a tour guide. He pointed out some sights and gave us an indication how to get to some places from our hotel on foot. Overall, a wonderful introduction to New York.
The taxi driver plays a key role in any city’s tourism industry. As the first and last point of contact, the impression they make lasts!
