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

"Walking Tour of Central Park with Mihele on 20th September 2017"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 21, 2017 NEW
Our 2 hour walk started at 4pm with a wonderful lady "Michele" :-) who was wonderful, great passion for not only describing the history of the park (how fascinating/interesting that was) but her knowledge of what we could see in the park and what you could see from the park looking at various building visible over the tree tops. Michele's knowledge of the designers of the buildings, statues, bronze sculptures, fountains, ponds, lakes, shelters, bridges etc etc. Such an enjoyable experience, highly recommend this walk with Michele. Wear comfortable walking shoes, take a water bottle. MIchele also does guided bike tours through the park.

"Tour was icing on the cake"

Utterly brilliant tour of Central Park with our tour guide, Joel. He suggested different options for the tour and luckily, all 7 of us chose the longer route. He was very informative and amusing, especially whilst walking backwards to easily project his voice, pointing out numerous key facts. This tour was certainly the icing on the cake in our stay in New York.

We took a two hour guided bikiing tour through Central Park. Our tour guide was Dan. He did an excellent job. Not only did he explain a lot about the park, he also did it in a fun and entertaining way. He made the whole group laugh on several occasions. And he has a great (Flemish)Dutch accent....

Last week we joined Damien for the 2 hour tour in a group of 10 people. Damien shared interesting stories with us about the history of the park, the surrounding buildings (and the people living in them). Great way to discover Central Park.
