"Welcome to New York, it's been waitin' for you!"

Are you the ultimate New York City Swiftie?

Well, there's no Swiftie like a Big Apple Swiftie--one who understands just how critical NYC has been for Taylor Swift's career. 

From NYU, where she received her honorary doctorate in fine arts, or the Empire State Building, where she announced her album, 1989, the list goes on and on. 

GetYourGuide is looking for the ultimate fan to lead an in-depth Taylor Swift-inspired guided tour through the city.  The guide will essentially allow fans to follow in her footsteps.

Madison Pietrowski, Head of Brand US at GetYourGuide says they are looking for someone who will make fans feel welcomed and take them along on a highly personalized tour of her favorite spots. 

"They want to see these places through Taylor's very romantic eyes," she says.

Taylor's New York

A recent study done by GetYourGuide found that 44% of travelers globally choose a destination based on their passions and interests. 

Another survey by the brand found that 22% of Americans have been influenced to travel by a celebrity or influencer including 32% of Millennials and 26% of men.

With so many travelers headed to NYC, they decided on a Taylor Swift-themed tour of New York City.
