Our guide Deborah was excellent. We covered more of Central Park than I was expecting, and it was such a fabulous tour with great insights into so many of the highlights of Central Park.

I visit New York City annually, yet I had never actually walked enough in Central Park to actually get a feel of it. The tour is two hours of walking with a very knid, knowlegeable guide. He took me through some beautiful areas surrounded by green trees and waterfalls. For a park that size, I found it helpful to be taken to areas that I could have easily missed myself.

The tour guide , Stan, was very NYC knowledgeable and also a movie buff ! My husband and son thought the tour was great! It was 2 hours and we really were only able to visit the lower third of the park. I did not realize it was so large!! The temp was about 90 that day. It was hot and it would have been better if it was 10 degrees cooler for me and I love to walk!! But that aside, it was a great walking tour!! Char E
