Really enjoyed the tour. Sun shone. Great guide. Got some good exercise
Extremely poor!!! We would not recommend this tour to anyone!!!! Look at other options!!!
My partner had gear trouble with her bike and the tour guide rushed off leaving us with no idea where we were in the park after the first stop!! We eventually found our way back to the shop and they were not helpful at all.
A lot of fun and a great way to explore Central Park. We had beautiful weather. Our guide was funny and kept us entertained and all together. We walk but that's the extent of our every day physical activity, and it wasn't too difficult for us. One of my favorite tours, I highly recommend it.
Such a great tour. Our guide Garrett was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and personable. The cycling was fun and pretty easy. If we hadn't been on bikes and with a guide, there's no way we would have got to see so much of Central Park
