Louis was great! Great way to see Central Park! Worth every penny! Friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding areas
Enjoyed the ride
Holly_S, May 2022
We enjoyed the ride. We had opportunities to stop and take photos at a few sights. We booked a 45min ride but that lasted 30min. I am guessing it’s the same route just depends how long you take for pictures/stops. The tour guide/driver John was very nice.

Celebrated my daughter’s 29th birthday with a carriage ride through Central Park. Juliette was a sweetheart and Onur was the best guide ever! A very memorable experience.
Worth the money!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed the experience! Onur was communicative, friendly, and knowledgeable about the park. He had answers to all of my questions as well! My wife gawked at the price originally, but we both agree it was a great introduction to NYC. Worth it!

Luis was great - very chill and relaxing ride through the park. He was charming and informative providing details and history about Central Park
Crystal_K, Dec 2021
Exactly what we wanted and expected!
Driver showed up on time, texted with us to make sure we had all the information.
Stopped at a few places to show us and tell us about some famous areas in Central Park. It was quite relaxing to just sit back relax with a large blanket and admire the park and sound of the horse trotting. Recommend for a peaceful time in the park. Not too long and not too short.
Awesome time!! Kids loved...

Awesome time!! Kids loved every minute!! The park was beautiful and we had the best time! Would definitely recommend to everyone.
Hire a carriage at the park instead of booking in advance.
Yoko_H, Dec 2021
The ride was enjoyable and worth doing. However we were very dissatisfied about the charge. We booked and paid in advance £144 for a family of 4, yet only to find out the ride would have cost only $100 if we had hired a carriage at the park. Felt ripped off.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi Yoko. We are happy to learn that you enjoyed the ride. There are different types of tours in the park, ranging from 20 minutes to one hour. The drivers working for cash misinform online customers to convince them to go with them only to find out that they would charge them much more than what they say at the beginning. The $100 price is for a short ride, 20-25 minutes. Our ride is 45 minutes and it follows the long circle in the park. Prices are generally higher during Christmas period and the cash payers end up paying more for a tour that is much shorter because the driver would not have any responsibility for providing a good experience., they would just try to finish the tour as quick as they can.

Got to see more of the park that I didn’t actually know was there! Also to hear about film locations throughout the park
Mid-day Central Park carriage ride

Fun, relaxing, educational, a little romantic. A little rain, a little sunshine, a little color and interesting people. Luis was terrific.
Trip through Central Park!

Qwon_R, Nov 2021
Carriage driver spent most of the 45 minutes actually 30 minutes on his cell phone. He mentioned roughly (3) points of interest during the 30 minute not 45 minute trip.
Taylor_B, Nov 2021
Ride was amazing! I will definitely do another carriage ride next time back in New York City. Loved hearing about the landmarks in the park.
