Our guide Chris was just the right amount of informative but not overbearing. He was warm, welcoming and seemed interested in everyone in our group of 7 visitors from the US and Europe. Central Park in Autumn is absolutely beautiful! The biking itself was strenuous at times, there are some long inclines that don't look like much, but your legs definitely feel them. If you don't normally bike longer distances, consider a powered bike vs a regular bike. The tour itself was informative and gave a short history of the park at the beginning, but the best part was to have a guide who knew where he was going so you can just relax and follow, while looking around at the amazing trees, plants, people and of course the New York City skyline in different areas of the park. After the tour, walk around some more and just enjoy this world class public space, my adult daughter and I loved seeing all the different breeds at the dog park, playing in the sunshine. New York in the fall is stellar!

Being keen cyclists, my daughter was a little sceptical about signing up to a guided tour of Central Park. Our guide Edward, was not only interesting, funny and full of unusual facts about the area, he was extremely passionate about New York having lived there most of his life. We had four teenages on the tour and he even kept their attention, which can be hard at times.

I would highly recommend these tours as there is so much to see and learn about the history of the park and surrounding areas, which you could easily miss if you were cycling the park on your own.

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teen girls) did the Central Park Guided bike tour on a sunny Easter Sunday morning 2022. We collected our bikes and helmets at 58th street and were introduced to Edward, our fantastic tour guide. He instantly made us feel very welcome and took a genuine interest in where we were from (Ireland) and chatted to the kids. We were taken safely over to Central Park where we had a fascinating 2 hour guided tour. Edward was very interesting and informative about the history of all areas of the park. He gave us time to explore different parts of the park on foot, whilst he looked after the bikes. He helped us with photographs and kept us safe throughout. We would highly recommend this tour.

Very disappointed!

My daughter and I paid £75 each for a two hour guided tour of Central Park.
The tour guide had 19 people.
Within the first ten minutes, myself and three other people lost the group.
I tried tried to catch up with the group, but couldn’t.
I never found the group the whole of the two hours, and had to navigate my way around Central Park on my own.
My daughter managed to stay with the group, thankfully. The guide told me to just make my way back to the shop, as I would never be able to find them!!
When I returned my bike to the shop, my daughter informed me only 11 people managed to stay with the group.
The guide was not happy, saying it had happened before, too many bookings on a weekend when the park is at its busiest!

Very disappointing day!

Bike rent NYC provided my young family and I with a wonderful two hour bike riding experience in central park.
Our guide, Ed, was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and thoughtful with all parties in our group of six.

Ed was particularly cognizant of my two daughters 10 and 12 year olds and made sure that we rode safely at all times and kept them amused with with his constant jokes and quizzes

Eds knowledge of the parks history, characters, and events are second to none and we left knowing we explored all facets of this wonderful park.

Eds red track pants were easy to spot!

I noticed some of the other reviewers, who are inexperienced riders, were talking about not being taught how to change gears or being given time to be practice riding; this is an important point.

If you are a very inexperienced rider, do not sign up for a guided bike tour - get into biking in your own time, then join riders on guided tours who are comfortable on bikes - it is a great hobby.

If you take this tour be aware that you will be riding 4 miles and it can be extreme heat. They do not tell you to bring water so bring water and sanitizer. The people at the bike place were friendly, but when I thought I had paid for electric bikes he said well that is an upgrade and was discouraged to get the electric bike. I would say if you are not an avid bike rider, get the electric bike there are hills in central park.
Also make sure you have a guide that you can understand. The guide was a woman, but she spoke French and was difficult to understand at times. Other than that the tour was good, but could have been given more tips before taking the tour for water, sanitizer and getting a nicer ride with an electric bike.

Excellent! My guide not only knew all the history of Central Park, he was able to tell of other parks in the nation and world with similarities. There was plenty of time to get off the bike and wonder the trails a bit. I was also introduced to the woods of Central Park which is mainly only used by the locals; it is important to me to be immersed and this “fit the bill”

The park was huge and lovely, the roadways are pretty busy with cyclists, scooter riders, runners and horse carriages but the road markings make it pretty safe.
Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area but….. the shop and staff weren’t very very helpful. Despite having booked the electric bike guided tour well before, when we turned up there was another couple expecting a walking guided tour. The company only had one guide available and hadn’t seemingly worked out he couldn’t do a cycle and walking tour at the same time. There was limited direction on use of the electric bikes, which we hadn’t used before and the shop staff weren’t very helpful. It was still a very enjoyable couple of hours

Started out on the wrong foot. Original guide had an emergency. Totally understood, so they were getting another one. Said it would be only be 10 min. At 35 min we requested a refund. At that point the manager upgraded our bikes to electric and then the replacement guide showed up. He (Daniel) was well worth the wait. He was knowledgeable, funny, and genuinely loved what he did. What could have gone wrong, went way better, great tour!!!

We had a fantastic time on our tour with our guide Ed (Edward). He was knowledgeable about the park, it’s history, and plenty of additional topics about the city and other parks across the globe. In 2 hours we saw so much and the price was great too! Highly recommend.
