How do I begin!!!! It was truly beautiful. Our tour guide (Andy) was wonderful, professional and very attentive to our needs and comfort during our tour. He provided us with a blanket to keep us warm, as it was raining off and on. He pointed out the different locations where television and movie productions used the site as well as an historic overview of the park and the communities living around the park. We also saw a couple getting married in one of the gazebo over a small stream. At the end of the tour Andy allowed me to pet and feed his horse (Cynthia).
Really relaxing tour round Central Park. Clean carriage and warm blanket was useful in February. Colm and Ende were very knowledgeable about local celebrities apartments and film shooting locations and were willing to stop for photos as needed. Only downside was that it would have been significantly cheaper to walk up and ride, than to book in advance and there was plenty of availability off season (although probably a very different story in summer)
Our English tour would have been cancelled today if it hadn’t been for Stefan who was taking the German tour stepping in. He was fantastic, switching between German and English. The tour was interesting and informative. Even though we have visited NY before, we still saw things we had not seen before and learnt new and interesting facts. Well done Stefan and thank you to the German ladies for allowing us to join your tour - Danke
The most interesting part and the well known sights is in the first half. Recommend sitting on the left if you can as the tour goes anti-clockwise round Manhattan island, although most space is reserved for premier ticket holders. We sat on the right and missed a lot inc Empire State. Second half has less of interest and after 2 hours was enough.
I have done 2 cruises. This one at 2 and a half hours long and the one hour long cruise. In my opinion the longer cruise is more suited to Americans as there is a lot of history here and very interesting. However being a Brit I much preferred the shorter cruise, altho if you want to see the bridges this is only available on the longer cruise.
