What a fun tour!

I have visited the park hundreds of times and learned new fun facts thanks to the enthusiastic guide Matt. The beautiful fall sunset was a bonus.

Took a "Sunset Tour" of CP on Saturday. My Tour Guide Matt was friendly and very knowledgable. The Tour enlightened me greatly and was fun and at times beautifully scenic. There are GREAT spots to behold and what a wealth of information to be learned. I highly recommend the Sunset Tour. I'll definitely spend more time visiting CP now that... More

Even -and maybe especially- after living in NYC for 15 years, this was a very fascinating and delightful treat. Heather was absolutely great. Showing us around parts that we've walking so many times, she managed to make the park more interesting with factoids and anecdotes.

Loved it! I've lived in the city for more than 10 years, walked through Central Park 100's of times, and learned so much about the park in "my back yard" on this tour. I highly recommend this tour for tourists and native New Yorkers.

Really recommend this guided tour! Have often wandered around Central Park before now, but never with a guide -- this gave me new perspectives and information on familiar spots. Wonderful to make discoveries like how each lamp-post in the park tells you were you are in relation to a cross-street and whether you're closer to the East or West side... More

It was my first tour of the Central Park but I would say that I didn't regret choosing this one. Matt was very knowledgeable and nice. If you want a relaxing stroll to cap off your day after a strenuous day around the city, this is the tour for you. I would advise though that it'd probably be nicer if... More

Matt would have heard it. He is as charming as he is knowledgeable. The tour starts out at the Arsenal in Central Park and meanders through Central Park stopping at most locations you would hope for along the way. Matt was our tour guide and had me smiling and peppy throughout. He was easy to be around expressing confidence in... More

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

TourCentralPark, Owner at Central Park Sunset Tours, responded to this review

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
