This was a great tour, Joel had lots of stories to share with us about the history of the park. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see a lot of the park in a couple of hours.
We had a lovely walk around the main sights of Central Park- lots of details and info about the history of the park and about current events in and around the park.
The tour was amazing. The guide was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. Great small group of people on walking tour.
Our tour guide Jole was extremely knowledgeable, and happy to answer any questions we had.
A wonderful tour. Our guide was so informative and interesting!
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
We found this tour to be very interesting and our guide had a lot of information to share. He spoke very rapidly to fit it all into the tour, but at times he was a little tot fast and difficult to understand .
The guide was very good and we really enjoyed the tour. I think without it we would have wandered around not knowing where we were or what we were looking at. I would recommend this to anyone going. The pick up/start point is a little hard to find as it is just a sign on a wall next to a garage door (where they keep bikes). Most enjoyable and we went back on our own.
There was only 4 of us on this tour so we saw a bit more than bigger groups would of, I had a great time walking around.
It was a warm, humid morning but what a way to see the gem of New York. It was a quick walk so not for the slow, but it was great.
I'm giving this tour 4 stars because I'm sure it was fabulous. We didn't make it. We were so exhausted from the tour the day before we just couldn't get out of bed. They even called to make sure we weren't coming but I slept through the call. Great tour company!
The tour was good. The guide knew a lot of interesting facts about the Park and surrounding buildings. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to walk and learn about the Park.
Very informative, tour guide made it more interesting with his knowledge :-)
Great tour! The guide was very knowledgable and informative with a lot of local knowledge! It maybe would have been better if we were issued with maps. We did receive maps but these were issued by friendly 'passers by' maybe something to consider for future tours? However I would recommend!
We had a private tour as we where the only ones on the tour, Debs our guide was great, friendly and informative, showed us sights we'd missed on our previous visit to Central Park. Would recommend if it's your first visit to Central Park.
It was good. Wasn't long enough. Only one other couple plus our family of four. Was a bit surprised at so few people. The guide Bernard, was knowledgeable about different things. Next time, I would not book ahead. Would wait until I got to NYC.
The guide was not at all knowledgeable. He basically guessed at nearly every feature we encountered. He did, however, take us to some locations that we may not have seen otherwise. Overall, I recommend getting a central park map, and seeing it yourself.
We enjoyed the walking tour of Central Park and we were able to cover a lot of area in the park. Our group consisted of just the three of us in my party and the guide, so in some ways it was like a personal tour. Our guide was very nice but I think he could be better informed about the history of the park. Our impression was that he might be new at this and was still learning about the park himself.
