Was a bit concerned about the welfare of the horses but all was put to rest upon meeting Atakan and how well he looked after Lucy. We booked the evening before on a whim (sore feet!) and we received confirmation immediately, follow up email the next day and a text an hour before from Atakan himself. Meeting point was perfectly situated and Atakan called me just as I arrived 5 mins early to make sure we could find him. He was really informative about the parks history, pointed out historical and film/tv points of interest. We stopped at the main points we'd wanted to see and got pictures taken. All in all a fantastic experience and perfect for those wanting to rest their legs for 45 mins but still cover some ground sightseeing NYC. Thank you Atakan and Lucy for making our honeymoon so much more memorable!

We had a nice ride with Johnny Cash (horse) and Idris (driver). Idris was very nice & stopped to take pictures of us along the way. We were able to feed carrots to Johnny. The carriage was clean & elegant. The company did a great job of updating us on meeting place & a change in the driver. We took a 45 min ride & expected to see a bit more of Central Park-several things were further off the route than we expected. It was a bit difficult to hear the driver along the route due to the noise in the park & his softer voice, but it was a nice, relaxing experience.
