This informative, fun tour originates at the southern end of Central Park in-front of the Bike/Rent.NYC store location at 203 West 58th Street, New York, NY 10019.

Your guide will lead you on a 2 hour walking tour through the southern half of Central Park, pointing out sights, presenting facts, relating a few stories, utilizing historical photos, and telling a couple bad jokes.

Guests will visit the following locations and more in this iconic New York City landmark: the Gapstow Bridge (pigeon lady bridge from Home Alone II), the Wollman (Trump) Ice Skating rink, the Dairy, the Mall (Literary Walk), Balto, the Conservatory Waters (Stuart Little), Alice in Wonderland statue, the Boat House (Harry Meet Sally), the Bethesda Terrace, the Bow Bridge (Spider Man III) and the John Lennon memorial of Strawberry Fields (Central Park West and 72nd) where the tour will end. Hop on a subway there, or your guide will escort you back to where the tour started.

While Central Park’s vast size is what makes it an oasis in the city, it also makes it difficult to navigate alone. Go with a guide to see the park’s highlights—including the locations of famous movie scenes—without the stress of getting lost. A small group sizes ensures the guide's full attention, ample time for questions, and a personal experience.
