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.

Description

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 have taken this tour because it was included in my New York Pass package. The tour was very interesting and informative and I have learned a lot of the interesting information about Central Park, including it-not-so glorious past. I would like to compliment Maggie for providing us with very interesting overview and answering all of our questions. If you go to New York, pick up this tour and don't forget to tip Maggie. I think that the best time to visit NYC is on the winter - it is not too crowdy.

We did the two hour walking tour which was very informative and a great way to see the park. Did not realise it was so large, actually did not expect NYC island to be so huge. Our guide Joel was very knowledgeable, entertaining and pretty animated which made the tour fun! We did this tour in early November 2017 and would highly recommend to all first time visitors to NYC. This was our first time in New York.

This two hours tour was very informative and a great way to see parts of the park visitors may not even know are there!! Our guide Joel was very knowledgeable and pretty animated which made the tour fun! We had some bitter cold temps the morning of our tour so the stop at the boat house to warm up and get a cup of coffee or hot chocolate was extremely appreciated. We booked through this company as there were no tours offered through Free Tours on the day we had company in town. It is a pretty good deal if you use their discount code.
