I'm so happy I booked this tour, because there's no way I would've been able to find each stop by myself. Lyall used to work for the park, so he knows what he's talking about. He shared fascinating information and stories about the people involved in creating the park, and I left feeling like I had a strong grasp on the ins and outs of beautiful Central Park. I was the only person on the tour, and Lyall offered to take my photo in all the best spots, which I also really appreciated.

Incredibly beautiful Central Park with a fantastic guide Lyall. Heard from a true New Yorker all the little things you wouldn’t notice if you meandered the park alone. He knew where movies were made, the statues stories, the trees, the skyscrapers history. Who lives where. A walking park historian but far from a boring guy he was animated & a genuine all around good guy. Book. This. Tour. It’s not a trip to NYC without strolling thru Central Park with an expert.

Our very entertaining guide allowed us to have stops for photos and to get to know the park. We had the opportunity to run the park in its entirety. Excellent Bicycles. 100% recommended!!!

Really enjoyable tour. Insightful & was able to see all the best bits of the park which otherwise days could be spent exploring such a big park. Much better than exploring on your own!

Knowledgeable tour guide well versed on park history. Will definitely do another tour with this guide
