NYC Central Park Bike Rental

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I received an email with a 50% reduction the day before our departure which was very welcome. The bike hire was very easy to find and the staff were very helpful Note that you will have to leave ID with them. We were told we would be charged an extra hour if we were more than 10 minutes late bringing the bikes back but we were over half an hour late (we got lost!) and weren't charged.
We bought a map for $2 at the park and you have to stay on the roads - we were warned that we would be fined on the spot if we went onto the walking paths.
The attractions in Central Park aren't signposted so we did get lost a few times and had to ask for directions but everyone was most helpful.
Definitely the way to see Central Park - just wish we had had longer than the 2 hours we booked.

My Review

What an incredible experience. Well worth every pound/dollar spent. We were well looked after pre and post flight by the staff who had great sense of humours. The views over Manhattan were unbelievable, especially of Cental Park and the Yankee Stadium. This was definitely the highlight of our trip!

My Review

We paid for the package with the free bar as we knew drinks would be expensive. This, along with the views, were the plus points. The food however was atrocious. We had a bouche amuse which was a tortilla chip with some paste, the ham and asparagus inedible and the main courses of chicken or pork were tiny portions. The dessert choices included a chocolate cheesecake which was very heavy and a scone which was rock hard. We also had to keep asking for drinks instead of having a bottle at the table.
However, the views were fantastic. We had a window seat and the views over Manhattan were incredible. We went very close the the Statue of Liberty on the return leg with a beautiful sunset over New Jersey. Although it didn't completely make up for the food it certainly made it a very special evening.
