Fantastic Tour!! Our tour guide was full of information and just a true delight!
Although we are not Movie Buffs, this Walking Tour was very enjoyable. We were a little worried about how fit we needed to be but our wonderful tour guide had many stops and always waited for everyone. She had such a fantastic knowledge of the Park and the movies. She had an iPad and continually showed us pictures from the various films she was talking about (e.g. Kramer vs Kramer, Serendipity, When Harry Met Sally). We DID feel that we had walked a considerable distance by the end of it but it was well worth it and not too tiring. Had we just gonr to Central Park on our own, we would not have seen a quarter of what we saw on this tour nor would we have been able to identify particular parts of the park. We particularly liked the John Lennon "Imagine" memorial and Strawberry Fields
