My education in architecture included one fifteen week class on landscape architecture, and one ninety minute period of that class on Central Park, so of course, I knew it all, right? Completely, completely wrong. Our tour guide, Matt, could teach that class. I didn't know what to expect when I signed up, but figured we'd walk around and get blurbs... More

As a native New Yorker, I found this tour to be interesting and worthwhile. I learned so much from Matt, our knowledgeable tour guide. He was excellent at fielding questions and has such a breath of knowledge about Central Park and NYC history! I'd recommend this tour to tourists and native New Yorkers!

I have lived in New York for over ten years and oddly enough I've spent very little time in Central Park except for some running and the occasional stroll. My partner surprised me one Saturday with a private walking tour of the park with Matt. Simply put, Matt was amazing. We visited 27 iconic spots throughout the park, learned the... More

This was fantastic. Matt, the tour leader, was knowledgeable, informative and fun. I have lived in NY most of my life, but learned so much on that tour and saw so many points of interest and beauty that I never noticed before. I plan to take it again...the best day walk ever. Lee

This is the way to see Central Park! I saw more in 2 1/2 hours than I would have been able to find on my own in twice the time. Our guide, Matt, was knowledgable and entertaining. He shared the perfect combination of historical facts and entertaining tidbits (like movie scenes filmed at certain places, etc.); I felt like I... More

This is a fun tour of Central Park that covers many of the major sites throughout the park. Matt, our guide was knowledgeable and very engaging. I especially enjoyed some of the lesser known trivia about some of the locations. As luck would have it we enjoyed an almost perfect day of fall weather which added to the experience but... More

I recently took this tour and Matt was our guide. It was an incredible journey. In addition to seeing highlights of the park, we also saw at least 4 brides and grooms getting photographed along with a couple getting engaged while we were standing at the Castle. There was so much activity in the park with the musicians, performers of... More

Matt our guide was excellent and his pace suited all ages. We live in NYC and never learned so much about the history, design and construction of the park. This was one of the most delightful and informative activities that I have ever done in my 40 years living on the edge of the park- and all of the credit... More

I did this tour just 2 days ago. I have done a lot of walking tours in the US and elsewhere and this one was very good. Our guide, Elizabeth, was very good and really knew her stuff. Its a great way to learn more about the park and to see so many differnet parts of it. The park is... More

We did this tour on a recommendation from a friend and loved it. Unfortunately it rained but that didn't seem to dampen the spirit of our guide Caroline or our group. In the time we had we got a comprehensive history and some exercise! We did this after a flight from Australia so it was a great way to stay... More
