Highly Recommended! Our guide told us a lot of information and little anecdotes about NY and Central Park during the trip. We stopped every now and then to look at individual places and take photos. The hour flew by and we really enjoyed the ride. Our guide was very attentive - even a blanket was ready for us.

This is definitely worth every penny! It’s such a fast smooth way to explore all of Central Park and learn more about the history of everything. They make it so fun with music & let you stop for photos! I believe my driver was John and he was incredible. I 100% recommend this to anyone!!

Great for seeing more of Central Park in a short amount of time... and resting your feet. Including photo stops and lots of information from the tour guide.

The guide was fantastic and really seemed to go above and beyond to provide a great experience.

Great way to see Central Park without getting lost or tired.
