definitely include a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park when you're in NYC. You can book early through a service like this one (which we did), or catch a ride on location around 59th Street, 5th - 8th Avenues (I think this area is called Central Park South), where the horse carriages line up. Our driver gave us some local... More

The horse looked well cared for and the carriage was clean. We called ahead and made arrangements with a driver. The carriage was waiting as planned, so we thought. During the ride I got a call asking if we were going to show up for the ride. Turns out another driver picked us up and left the first guy without... More

My friend organised a surprise horse and carrage ride for me for my 30th birthday. We went over with the confirmation, and she even received a confirmation email day before. We get to the address an hour before the ride and no sign of any horses. We walked the whole end of the park, spoke to people in the street... More

We booked online through centralpark.com and it turned out not be worth it or good value! The drivers were charging much less at the park and there was a continuous line of carriages waiting. They were of varying quality and when ours finally turned up late it wasn't the best at all!! They say you need to take the first... More

Josephine made contact as soon as the service was booked through American Sky. We were having a low key wedding at the ladies pavilion in Central Park. Josephine made sure everything was organised well before we flew out, and met with Josephine as soon as we arrived. I cannot recommend this lady highly enough. She took all of the stress... More

We came to New York with a view to visiting Central Park and of course do the obligatory horse and carriage ride. There are a number of horses lined up along 59th Street. We went to the first one, all of the carriages display the fixed prices. We agreed on the amount of time and had a very relaxing trot... More

Wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the time or money on a horse and carriage ride through Central Park, but I'm so glad we did as we all enjoyed it. The carriages were all lined up on 59th St, so I approached the first one, but he referred us to the next carriage when he heard that we only... More

Hi, We visited NYC for 5 days from the UK and planned to experience central park on a horse drawn carriage. A little apprehensive as there were lots of rumours about neglect, but we live in the country and are surrounded by horses and these were in very good condition so don't necessarily believe the rumours because sometimes that's all...

This company provides NO service whatsoever. I agree with other people who have posted about receiving no response from this company. I sent 3 email requests because there is no other way to contact this dodgy company. At no point did I get any response to my webpage query, leaving email details and phone numbers (and nothing went to junk... More

We wanted to arrange a horse & carriage ride around Central Park after our wedding on the 11th July. We were getting married at Shakespeare Gardens, then lunch at the Loeb Boathouse. We wanted to be picked up from the Loeb & then finally dropped off at the Tavern on the Green. We didnt realise that a number of different... More
