This review is for the CP Sightseeing Co located at 56 W56th St. Although the Park is a must see for anyone visiting NYC, I can't recommend this company for doing so. I booked a 2 hour bike tour for my nephews prior to our NYC trip. When we arrived at CPSC, my nephews informed me that they preferred to... More

One block behind Central park. The bikes are not brilliant but look better than the ones all the guys that harass you at the subway exit offer. It's 67.12 dollars with tax for an hour (we did the tour in less than an hour with stops but my guys do a lot of mountain-biking) and 20 dollars for the second... More

no matter how many times you walk thru the park its always different. try walking at night. take a nap on one of the benches for a refresh. use common sense of course and don't carry purses and don't walk alone at night. bellissimo!

We used this company to rent bikes to ride Central Park. The ability to make reservations on line was easy to use. They also had good instructions on line. The line to get the bike was fast and we were on our bikes in 15 min. Was a little surprised they held my drivers license - maybe put that on... More

Getting a tour guide was the best decision I could have made for getting around Central Park. Richie's New York Pedicab Taxi & Tours not only took us from place to place but Richard Costella also showed us where all the stars live. He took the time for us to get on and off of his pedicab to view different... More

We did this tour with Free Tours by Foot on a lovely day in May. This was the second of three tours (the first-our favourite was SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown). The tour lasted approx. 2 hours and our group size was approx. 18. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and had a "weird" sense of humour. The tour follows paths with... More

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
