Absolutely amazing 5 🌟

‘Jeremy’ arrived to meet us with the biggest smile! Only us 3 (me, hubby & son) on the tour. A wonderful morning spent . Jeremy was so knowledgable about the Park and NYs history . His file full of pictures gave a great insight into the design, build and makeup of Central Pk. 100% recommend the tour - with Jeremy. NB: the horse carriages and pedicabs can’t access the majority of Park areas - walking is the only way 😉

We did the Central Park Walking Tour early January with Jeremy as our guide.
What a great tour and definitely well worth doing, we had all been to Central Park before but this tour really gave us an insight to the history of the park and many interesting facts and old photos to see how the park and surrounding New York looked back then.
Jeremy was a wonderful guide and we would highly recommend. Meeting place was also very easy to find.

Aug 2019 • Solo
Jeremy's tour was full of fun facts throughout. I've lived near Central Park for years yet and Iearned a great deal. He showed us a number of spots from movies and pop culture but also told us the history of how hte part was made. I had a greater appreciation for the park's beauty after the tour. Strongly recommend.

Apr 2019 • Couples
My husband wanted to do this tour. I was ok but thought a park is a park. I was so wrong! This was a great tour and one of the highlights of our trip. We had Jeremy, he was very knowledgeable and interesting. We loved the old pictures he had. A carriage ride would be fun but they can’t go the places we did. And you wouldn’t have Jeremy! I have a bad hip (to be replaced this next week) so I was pretty concerned about the walking. But the pace wasn’t that fast and we had frequent stops. Can’t recommend it enough!

Great Tour of Central Park
Apr 2019 • Couples
We are life long New Yorkers and we still saw parts of Central Park that we had never seen before.
Our tour guide Jeremy was outstanding and this is one of the best non-good tours we have ever taken. Highly recommend when you are in New York City. Also very reasonably priced for a 2.5 hour tour.
