Joel, our tour guide, did a great job with us. A tour guide can make or break any tour and he helped to make it. For a walking tour, we saw about as much as could be seen of this massive park. But it didn't feel rushed or hurried. You don't have to be a speed walker to do this tour, but need to realize you're not at a snail's pace either. For a first time Central Park tourer, my family of four gives a big thumbs up!

If you've never been to Central Park, this is a nice short 2-hour walk around the park from the Southeast corner, up and around, and ending at the Southwest corner. The tour guide pointed out and educated us on the history and little hidden gems around the park. Very lovely. Nice way to start our first day in the city.
