Testimonials

  • Wonderful! James, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. I’ve been in Central Park many times but learned so much more about it: about how it got there and why; about the architecture and all the contributors; historical facts and interesting stories. Definitely would recommend this tour. – Marie Van Duyne
  • Great tour. I’ve lived in NY for over 20 years and spent a LOT of time in the park and our tour guide Ryan still showed me places and told me lots of facts and trivia about the park that I didn’t know. He timed it perfectly so we saw sunset from Bow Bridge. I recommend highly. – Marty K.
  • Expected a short-ish walk through the bits of the park everyone knows… We were treated to a thorough history, interesting stories, and sights I never knew were there. Suitable for New Yorkers and tourists alike. – TripAdvisor Reviewer
  • I’ve been living in the NY area for almost 25 years and have been missing out on Central Park’s history, beauty and wonder… until now. – TripAdvisor Reviewer
