Overall rating

4.7 / 5

I took me and my three children, ages 10 and 7, for a 55 minute carriage ride. Due to traffic we got there a bit late (5 mins) but and the driver finished the route about 5 mins early, so we didn't quite get the full 55 minutes. It was enough given the weather, time of day and the ages of the kids. Personally I was a bit disappointed that the tour references movie locations mostly and nothing much about any of the scultpures or architecture, but the kids liked it and I was only doing the whole thing for them. It's an expensive treat. One I will repeat!

Our guide, Omar, took us around to see the main highlights in Central Park: the ice-skating rink, Strawberry Fields, statues, lakes, and the sites of many movies. His pedicab is comfortable, and he allowed us time at a few stops to take pictures. He took pictures for us, and told us a lot of the history of the park.

Prepared driver, kind and non-invasive. Useful tour to test the atmosphere in the park, with stops at famous places.

On time Polite Helpful and informative Would recommend to anyone visiting the area

Rasheed is an excellent host! Highly recommend booking with him. Beautiful park.
