In business together for over 10 years
“We’ve been in business together for over 10 years, and this year, we will celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary, though we’ve been together for 15 years,” Cindy and Andrew tell us about mixing business and pleasure. “Turnstile Tours & Studio is a mission-driven social enterprise that works with nonprofit, community, and cultural organizations to help them build capacity to welcome the public in various ways.
“We operate a number of tour programs in New York City, including our street food and public market tours. We also work behind the scenes with clients on training, program development, and accessibility. Our whole team is just eight people, and with over a dozen partnerships, we all have to wear a lot of different hats.
