I have many nieces and nephews who come and visit the USA uncle and aunt. There are only so many times I can take them all to NY for the day. Now that they are old enough to take the train to the city on their own, I booked the central Park bike tour (10:00 am) and they coupled it... More

We had used this bike tour company before for the movie tour of the park and loved it. The guide was amazing and the entire experience was so positive we booked again this year to take our friends with us. From beginning to end it was terrible. Not only should we not have paid we wasted valuable time by even... More

We truly apologize your experience on our Movie Scene Tour and on behalf of Central Park Bike Tours. We have fired the tour guide that did the tour that day. We take pride on what we do and I do not tolerate for our tour to be a disaster and not satisfying to our customers. We have issued full refund... More

We arrived here about midday to get a 3 hour fee rental with the New York pass.. We waited a bit for one of the guys behind the desk and faff on a bit (perhaps he was new), but then we were given our bikes and offered helmets and locks too. Had a lovely day in the park and no... More

Having purchased The New York City Pass and being keen cyclists we thought this would be a really good way to see the Park. We went on the Sunday 9 AM tour, a group of around twelve of us on the tour (I'm glad we opted for this tour as there was a tour just about to start as we... More

We went for this tour as it was included in the City Pass, we elected for the 9am 2 hour guided park tour. Our tour guide Joel was very informative. Would recommend to anyone, a really nice way to see Central Park, seeing parts you wouldn't normally see. You need to comfortable cycling for two hours and to cycle on... More

This place was only visited because of the New York Pass. There were about 5 groups of 2-4 people in front of us and it took about 30 minutes to reach the counter. At this point we were told there was not enough bike locks which are included in the New York Pass price. Considering the trip we had planned,... More

Scheduled the Central Park tour online a few hours ahead of time. Easy. Arrived a bit early. I was unhappy about two things: 1. No bathrooms. Really? You are going to send folks out on a tour and have no bathroom? 2. The bikes didn't have water bottle holders Everything else was great. Liked the bike, liked the helmet, seat... More

My wife and I did the 2 hour tour yesterday. Although I would rare the overall experience as just ok I think that the guide talked too much about trivial things making it more of a standing tour than a bike tour. Yes it's good to hear the background about what you are seeing but not to the extent this... More

We do apologize you did not have enough cycling in the park. Unfortunate the way to see all the attractions in the park is dismounting and walking over to each attraction. This is the reason we provide tours, so our guides could give a brief description of the attractions in the park and guide you to the attraction. There is... More

I found the tour too fast paced - not a slow ride around the park. Guide tried hard but mainly focused on movie references when providing information. Did not speak loud enough. Office staff unfriendly. No washrooms available at tour office. Could have been so much better.
