My wife and I are lifelong New Yorkers but we really enjoyed guide Heather's excursion through the park. We learned a lot of cool stuff we'd never heard about before and Heather's easy-going and personable style made for a great afternoon. Hardly noticed the cooler temps! Would recommend to tourists and homegrowns alike looking for a great way to fill... More

This is a great tour! We moved to New York six months ago and had visited Central Park several times but this tour gives a great background and overview to this iconic place. Our guide (Heather) was friendly and full of interesting facts and stories about the park's history. Our group was small, which made for an intimate experience, but... More

I felt I was really misled by the name of the tour. I had taken several Central Park tours before and signed up for this tour only because I thought there would be something special about seeing the sunset in the park. Their website states "Each tour is planned to perfectly coincide with the sunset and leaves in the late... More

If you follow our schedule year round and the changing time, or you look at the user submitted photos, you can in fact see that the tour is planned around sunset. We view it from a bridge and a scenic overlook. Some days however, the weather is overcast. How are we supposed to control that? We also take great care... More

The tour was full of so much information that I'll never look at Central Park the same way! Matt was knowledgable, warm, and just so much fun! It's apparent he really knows what he's doing. The day started right on time and we covered so much. The weather was perfect, the trees were beautiful and the sun set at the... More

It was a little rainy the day my wife and I took this tour and because of that there was no sunset. Matt did an excellent job nonetheless. He was very knowledgable. We had a great time. I highly recommend the tour.

This tour fits newcommers and New Yorkers. Matt took a mix of people to 42 spots at sunset in this amazing park. Thanks Matthew Falber for an excellent stroll trough the park and the parks history.

This is hands down the best tour when visiting nyc. Central park is the second most visited destination (1st is times square) in NYC (learned that on the tour) and it was worth every penny. Matthew was our tour guide and the amount of information he knew was incredible. He takes you to spots in the park that I never... More

I have been to Central Park hundreds of times and every time I go I see something that I have never seen before and know something new. Matt is a great tour guide. The day I did the tour it was raining and we were not able to see the sunset but it was worth taking the tour of Central... More

We're from New York City and we visit Central Park all the time (I run there almost every morning), but to see it with a tour guide, listen to the history of its planning and development, and to do so in the evening on a night with a gorgeous sunset, was a treat even for these seasoned New Yorkers.

Living in New York City is an adventure. After 10 years we took the Central Park Sunset Walk tour. It was very interesting to learn about how the park was put together. Our tour guide Matt was extremely knowledgeable about the park. The guided tour took over 3 hours. If you are in the city and looking for a fun... More
