exc the experience! a genius Alex Illaramendi, the guide. He knew a lot and shared everything ... very interesting to go around the city like that and get to know it. On the other hand, we went to Harlem to take the bike tour that afternoon and there was no tour and the one that was available the next day was in English and that was not communicated in the Go Explorer pass app that we lost to use.

Our tour guide was extremely professional and down to earth. We were even late and he called to check on us. I was impressed by that. After being late he was gracious to give us the tour and take pics when he had someone soon after us. I would highly recommend!

Enjoyed this tour very much! John was an excellent guide and not only was he knowledgeable about Central Park, he took pictures of us. Best way to start our vacation!

Alex was friendly and knew just about everything about Central Park! Really liked the warm, fuzzy blanket on a very cold day!

Great trip! I was scouting spots to propose so the guided tour helped!
