“You never get a second chance to make a first impression – and to many people, their first impression of the United Nations comes in the form of a tour guide,” said Deputy-Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, addressing approximately 50 former tour guides from the 1960s who gathered in the Delegates’ Dining Room for a reunion luncheon recently.

Organized as a private reunion by the former guides themselves, it was an opportunity to reconnect with old friends, reminisce and see what had changed since the heyday of Guided Tours.
