Central Park Bike Rental runs like a machine - very efficient process with nice helpful people. All bikes were in very good condition and the (Must See Central Park Bike Rentals) online booking price for the full day was the best deal I could find anywhere. I think I paid little more (with an unknown discount applied) for our five... More

To me, the best place to go in New York City is Central Park. Sure, there are lots of other more exciting attractions, but the park breathes life into the city and you feel revived after you have visited there. Every time I go there, regardless of the season, it is great to just wander around, sit down for a... More

I often frequent Central Park Sightseeing for quick weekly bike rentals and have a blast! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable on the bikes. The bikes are always new and are light with baskets for my backpack or purse. You can take the bikes anywhere , not only for Central Park which is a plus since I'm a local :)... More

We couldn't have been happier with the Central Park Sightseeing Co. We were looking for an adventurous way to see Central Park in the city with our two families of five each and found it. It was remarkable how organized this operation was with such an influx of people in the city renting bikes. The staff was overly friendly and... More

Poor quality bikes and even poorer customer service. My son was given a bike that we had to stop every 5minutes to fix the chain. The staff were rude with an unbelievable dismissive attitude. Total disregard to elementary/statutory rights of a customer. Pretending they can not do refunds in store or they have no manager on site. They seemed like... More

The employees were rude throughout and made several errors which were only rectified after we pointed them out. Some of these errors include: printing off an incorrect receipt saying we rented bikes but didn't book a tour (we had booked and payed for the tour weeks earlier), not giving my 11-year old a helmet required by law which held up...

Central Park Sightseeing has different options other than bike tours that can meet your activity level from bike rentals, Pedi cab tours, walking tours, horse and carriage tours. We had used a voucher for the Central Park Bike Tour and thought it would be a good alternative to walking the park and still didn’t see all the sights in the... More

We rented bikes for me, my husband, and my two girls and used the time to ride around Central Park and it was perfect. However, keep in mind that to see many of the noted sights, you have to leave your bike parked. Bike locks aren't included. Staff was awesome. We made reservations and although the line was long when... More

My wife, daughter, and I did the carraige ride through central park. Overall it was very good. Its unclear how many different companies may be offering this ride. You'll be approached by people with signs offering you this ride and/or package deals with bike rides, etc. Instead we went to the southeast corner of the park (near FAO Schwartz) where... More
