A pleasant and very informative walk through Central Park

On a very hot and sunny afternoon, I had the pleasure to be the only guest to show up for a walking tour as most visitors chose to use bikes. The tour guide, an expert on birds, history, geology and cinematography, showed me many sights in the lower part of Central Park. His helpfulness to other visitors to Central Park - mainly about directions - and shorts chats with fellow guides - often in their mother tongue - impressed me greatly and added to the excitement of the day. I can without any reservations recommend the walking tour.
