Slow it down!
Anita_S
, Oct 2021
The tour guide provided so much history and info about the park and also made certain we hit all the highlights BUT needed to slow it down a bit. There were no pauses for pics or a single break to even grab a drink. Everyone on the tour as expected is visiting out of town and would have loved the opportunity to capture a few pics along the way without fear of being left behind. Perhaps cover less ground and make it more like a relaxing walking tour and less like a tour/boot camp

It's not about Central Park
Luane_N

This tour is not about Central Park, it is about a guide, very sad. The guide was all over the top, I didn’t mind if he gave any good information. The tour ended 30’ early. I mean nothing about Central Park. It is a waste of time and money. If you read one page about Central Park on the internet it will be better. Truly Terrible, Don’t do it

We had a wonderful two our walking tour from a guide who has lived in NYC all his life. He knew the history of every single corner, statue, rock and leaf in the park. Offered to take pictures and gave us tips about NYC not found in guide books. He had a friendly and fun sense of humor that kept everyone interested. Pointed out best picture locations. This tour is one you don’t want to miss! Five Petey Stars and Roll Tide!!!
