New York City’s Leading Inbound Travel Advisors Announce Merger
Today, Beyond Times Square and Discover New York announced the merger of the two companies to create the largest local tour company focused on providing custom travel experiences for visitors to New York and other cities on the eastern seaboard. The new company will operate under the name Beyond Times Square and cater to a variety of visitors: luxury travelers, group travel, student travel, shore excursions, and others.
Discover New York has more than 24 years’ experience providing custom experiences for international and domestic visitors to New York, from student groups to luxury clients. The company’s expertise extends to other nearby destinations including Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. It has been recognized as a top travel specialist for New York by Condé Nast Traveler and featured in other leading travel publications as well as on the Travel Channel. Discover New York has served thousands of clients, each enjoying their unique travel packages or bespoke itineraries.
Beyond Times Square was founded in 2003. The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, and Crain’s New York Business are just a few of the publications that have turned to Beyond Times Square for its expertise on the city. Thousands of satisfied clients have also relied on Beyond Times Square’s team of experts and local guides to provide insider access, curated experiences, and VIP treatment at the city’s top restaurants, bars and music venues. Like Discover New York, Beyond Times Square creates trips to nearby destinations from the Hudson Valley to Washington, D.C.
The combined company will bring together the strengths of both companies. Jeff Guberman, President, says of the merger: “Discover New York and Beyond Times Square are known to be the best New York has to offer in the world of high-end travel. I am excited at the caliber of each company’s team and look forward to seeing what they will create together. This merger is sure to create a true powerhouse in the industry and introduce our clients to the very best that this dynamic city has to offer.”
Eric Gordon, the founder of Beyond Times Square—and a native of New York—says that he is “thrilled about the combination of these two extraordinary companies. Both bring unique areas of expertise that are guaranteed to enhance the experiences of our clients.” Gordon will continue to lead Beyond Times Square as its Director of Sales and Marketing.
