This was a great experience
our driver Emily was very knowledgeable and did a great job taking pictures and letting us know about the park
Highly recomend this carriage trip
I loved this ride around Central Park with Lester, he was quite beautiful. His owner Sal has two horses, so they get 6 months off work each year. The horses were well looked after. It is hard to describe the feeling going round the park in a horse drawn carriage, we got some great photos and saw the centre spot of New York which is in the Park. Yes it's pricey but it's worth it.
Sal was a good business man, he saw us walking up the road with the voucher in hand, checked it against the database they have access via their phones, found us on there so let us climb aboard - very easy. I'm not sure if we were suppose to go to the front of the queue but no one seemed to mind.
We had other horses over take us, we got the full time at a lazy pace, which is what it's all about.
Excellent ride and informative information about Central Park.
I would suggest an easier way to find the carriages that we should ride in. Difficult to find, maybe put name on carriage itself, or sign where they are stationed along street.
The horse and carriage trip was fabulous,no problems getting there only thing i would say is it would have been cheaper leaving it till i got there as they charge 50 for first 20 mins then 20 for every 10 mins and because the pound is good against the dollar i would have been cheaper getting it there than booking it before i went so just a bit off advise to anyone thinking about it.
The tour was excelect but I'd advise to pick your driver carefully. Ours was more interested in making sure we gave a tip even before we started. If there had been other caries waiting we wouldn't have picked him. This doesn't tke away from the tour it's self being excelect. The driver stopped to take pics for us and pointed out places of interest. Great way to see the park and perhaps walk back another time
Wonderful service, great driver, Had a wonderful time even in the rain. I would recommend this to everyone.
Perfect! That's what I can say about our experience with our carriage ride. We were quickly able to find a participating carriage and our driver, Paul from Ireland, was very kind and friendly and gave us a wonderful tour. It was definitely a highlight of our New York visit. I would recommend not missing this. It's not cheap, but worth it. I lived in NYC for three years a while back and never took this ride before. I'm so glad I did now!
This was a very peaceful way to see Central Park. Our guide provided amusing and interesting facts about the park. It was very romantic . We saw it after dark with the city and park lit up.
The ride was great. Our guide was very informative and agreed to stop a couple of times to let us take pictures. I would definitely recommend this trip.
Wonderful experience and what a lovely way to see the famous Central Park. The driver and his favoured steed Black Betty made our trip truly memorable, so friendly and so much interesting facts passed on. Would definitely recommend to all.
very courteous driver--provided details about park--had a great time
It was the most relaxing tour. The driver was informative and we'd do it again
This was my one thing I wanted to do in New York City and it was everything I expected. Central Park is just beautiful and this way was a great introduction. Loved it.
Terrific tour. First, for those who've heard otherwise, horse was sound, happy, well groomed, and clearly well fed. Driver was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and professional. It was a great way to be introduced to Central Park-keep the carriages!
The carriage ride was something I had wanted to do for a long time. It was lots of fun and made much more enjoyable because the driver was friendly and informative.
Well, this was definately one of the highlights of our family trip to New York.
I'm always very sceptical regarding unscrupulous Drivers etc and the possibility of being 'taken for a ride' excuse the pun inthis case. But I needn't have worried. Our Driver was both courteous and informative and a lovely young man. All the Drivers seemed the same.
We just turned up with our aviator voucher and one of the Drivers helped us find our particular driver.
Seriously, it was superb and we will even do it again on any future return.
Our 19 and 21 year old lads confessed to really enjoying it also, so can't be bad.
Thank you New York AND aviator.
