“It was a perfect tour of Central Park highlighting things many New Yorkers don’t even know about their beautiful park! The guide was very knowledgable, polite and open to many questions. A wonderful experience! I learned many new things about Central Park and will definitely share them with my family and friends. I am looking forward to more guided tours with this guide and the company.” — regina251, Trip Advisor
