History Tour Pub Crawl Guide Position:
New York Crawling is looking for fun, entertaining people to lead our History Tour Pub Crawls. As a Guide, you’ll take visitors from around the globe to 4 different historic taverns in the Stone Street area of Manhattan and provide a History Tour along the way. You’ll present a memorized script about New York’s role in colonial and revolutionary America while crawlers enjoy their drinks. Our crawls are split evenly between history and socializing.
Who We Are Looking to Hire:
Responsible, energetic, and outgoing people with passion. We want people who love going to bars, enjoy public speaking, and like to meet new people from around the globe.
The ability to memorize and present a script is important. Therefore we are looking for people with presentation backgrounds such as actors and teachers. However, this is not a requirement.
Hours and Schedules:
Our pub crawls operate daily from 2:45 – 5:15pm and 7:45 – 10:15pm
This is a part-time position with flexible scheduling as we try to work with our Guides to find them shifts that work with their schedules.
Guides earn a flat fee of $50 per tour and make more than that on tips from guests at the end of the crawl. On average, guests tip $5-$10 per person. We take groups of 1-12 people each crawl with larger numbers for private crawls.
Must be 21+ years old. Guides are also not allowed to drink while leading a crawl.
