Ride was good but instructions on finding the carriage could have been better. Also while we were waiting we noticed there were lots of carriages available and there was no need to make a reservation. When asking one of the drivers for a price he said $140 for 30 min. We paid $285 for 40 min. Next time I wont reserve

The carriage ride was an absolute highlight in New York. The tour lasted just under 50 minutes with stops for great photos. Our driver told us interesting details and knew a suitable film for almost every location that was playing there. We found the starting point quickly. About an hour before the start, we got a call with the mobile number and the name of our driver. We didn't need the number. Just ask a driver for their name at the meeting point. They will help you quickly. Good to know: you can't make it through the whole park in 50 minutes. We weren't at the famous Bow Bridge. Nevertheless, the tour is highly recommended.

How do I begin!!!! It was truly beautiful. Our tour guide (Andy) was wonderful, professional and very attentive to our needs and comfort during our tour. He provided us with a blanket to keep us warm, as it was raining off and on. He pointed out the different locations where television and movie productions used the site as well as an historic overview of the park and the communities living around the park. We also saw a couple getting married in one of the gazebo over a small stream. At the end of the tour Andy allowed me to pet and feed his horse (Cynthia).
