The employees are extremely rude. We specifically asked if the bikes came with certain features and they said yes. As soon as we paid and went to use the bikes, they changed their story and refused to give a refund. There are several options for bikes in NY. Go somewhere else!

We finally gave in to one of the many touts selling bike rentals outside Central Park. Everything was thrown in (helmets, locks, bell, maps), we just had to agree to a price. We didn't haggle much on price as it seemed reasonable. The shop was pointed out on a map and it was "just around the corner". Well it was... More

We had time to linger & take photos. Next time we come to NYC we will rent bikes again & go back to these places on our... More

We went to empire state building to take the tour of the building that at one time was the tallest building ever built. The tour was so so. It seems staff spent more time in leading you to the gift shop. There were lots of pictures during the construction phase on the tour. One thing that would have made this... More

It's a cash grab - be aware. Should have known after I looked at the website, was cheaper if I had made a reservation online. It cost $25 for 3.5hrs - at the time, I felt it was worth it, however the bikes were old and in dis-repair. No helmets were provided and no direction on best routes or areas... More

if you are a tourist, bicycle rentals are easy and all you need is a map and time to take everything in. You will stop regularly to experience the many wonders of this fabulous park. Food vendors are everywhere. Entertainment is non-stop, whether they are performers or just passers by. bring bread to feed the ducks. A ball or frisbee,... More

Don't beleive the response to these negative review that "...oh you should have contacted us" because we did and they just ignore you. Don't believe, see also... More

They still owe me my 250 USD refund for the bikes since 9 months now. Liars, rude and arrogant staff, old bikes, worse customer service. They do not respond to any emails or phone calls regarding the refund of my 250 USD. AVOID AT ALL COSTS, TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
