We enjoyed our tour, though we wish we had chosen a daytime tour because even as the sun had just gone down, it was too dark to see much of the park. We were able to bring our bottle of wine, which we enjoyed. Our driver was friendly, though he didn't talk much about the park, he would answer questions.

from Central Park Horse and Carriage Tour
There is nothing more romantic or charming than seeing Central Park from the back of a horse-drawn carriage. The feeling of stepping back a little in time is one never to be forgotten. Sitting shoulder to shoulder beside the person you love as you meander through the most beautiful park in Manhattan, wondering if he or she planned for the stars to come out early is one of the most whimsical of lover's dreams. The soft jostle of the carriage rocking to the gait of the horse ahead and the gentle sound of hooves on pavement are a balm to the soul you will feel as your guide points out several popular and some secret places of NYC's crown jewel of parks. If you have eyes only for the person beside you, ignore the guide. He won't mind at all.

Central Park Sightseeing's prearranged horse and carriage rides allow up to four adults per carriage. We will try to accommodate all the sights you wish to see and more. Perfect for any family outing or a birthday party for your prince or princess of any age. They will see the park with new eyes forever more and maybe keep that magic within them for so much longer than the 45 minutes of the average carriage ride.

However, an increasingly popular favorite is the single-person carriage ride. Sit back and relax in the privacy and safety of your personal carriage as your guide shows you New York’s Central Park as you have always wished to see it. Take your time, have fun and ‘play tourist’ – even if you aren’t one.

Each Carriage can take up to 4 adults or 3 adults and 2 kids under 12 years old

I and my son was visiting New York. We waited on 59th Street for our guide Max. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. He guided us through the Park and pointed out all the places where films and tv shows had been filmed, He was so inspireing that I had to watch Enchanted on my flight to LA.

Danny did a great two hour bike tour of Central Park. He was brash and irreverent, even rather profane, in between being informative and funny and watching out for the folks on the tour. Great combination!

We did the Central Park Walking Tour on a warm May day. Our tour guide, Maggie, was very knowledgeable and made the tour very lively and interesting. We were able to see most of the major sites during the two hour tour. We would definitely do another tour with this company again.
