BEST Walking tour of Central Park

, Oct 2019
I love that we learned the history of the park and unique "secrets" that nobody knows. I have walked in Central Park almost every day for the last 22 years and I now have a whole new appreciation for the park all thanks to our tour guide Lyle.

My highest measure of a complement is being able to help even a local to discover things about the park! Thank you for joining us Kelly!
Lots of interesting facts on a good walk

I was lucky as I was the only participant on this tour. My guide was profssional, took me hidden places, told me a lot of interesting stories, I was a bit sad that the tour was only 2.5 hours long. I recommend this to everyone who likes to hear the backstories.

Fantastic tour and tour guide!!!

The Central Park Walking Tour | Jun 2019
This was my first time taking a Central Park tour and all I can say is, it was amazing!! Lyle, our guide was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and had a great personality. We were actually late for our tour and Lyle kept in contact with me and met me at artisan gate to help us catch up with the rest of the group. Truly a gentleman. Would highly recommend this tour and tour guide.

Could be better

The Central Park Walking Tour | Apr 2019
First of all, the meeting point is inside the "Bike Tour" office and it's extremely hard to locate your tour guide. No sign for the Walking Tour. I was 20 minutes early for our meeting time and asked the Bike Tour people and they seemed mostly unaware of this Walking Tour business. I almost missed my tour. I called the number on the voucher and finally caught my tour guide before the group went on for the tour. Tour guide seemed knowledgeable but wish we could hear more as we were walking along the park. We would walk and then stop to hear bits and pieces about the park and wish it was packed more throughout the tour.

OK tour

The Central Park Walking Tour | Oct 2018
Because it was Columbus Day weekend, it was extremely crowded in the park. Our group of 13 was large and it was very hard to hear the guide who didn’t wear wear a mike. We skirted the perimeter of park and missed some of the highlights. I had taken the tour before, and knew what we missed. However, my friend enjoyed it, as she had nothing to compare it to.
