MEET YOUR HOST, NEILA SWAPP
"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE NEW YORK CITY AT CHRISTMASTIME!"
Neila Swapp has worked in group travel for over 25 years. From small, intimate groups to large groups of 350 passengers, Neila has hosted countless tours to New York City. Christmas is her favorite time of the year to be in the city.
Memorable, Magnificent are just a
few of the adjectives I would use to describe New York City. As soon as you arrive in the city, the Christmas Spirit takes
over your entire mood. A visit to
Rockefeller Center is a must do and you will be filled with wonderment at the
Rockefeller Tree, the ice skating rink, the gorgeous decorations, and the window
shopping. St Paul’s Cathedral across the street from Rockefeller
Center is always filled with Christmas Choirs and the
sound emanating from there is contagious. Macy’s on 34th Street features tree lightings,
holiday parades, Santa’s workshop is divine and caters to all ages. Don’t forget the Picture Windows on 5th Avenue is
a wonderful stroll through your childhood memories. The Christmas Markets are divine and range through all the
city parks including the wonderland New Yorkers call Central Park. Broadway is all decked out and the Radio City Rockettes Christmas show is a must-see in December. Can you tell I love New York in December? I look forward to
going again and I hope you will join me."
