Knowledgeable & Insightful Tour
Aug 2021
Michael gave our family a great tour of Central Park. He is very knowledgeable, engaging, and easygoing. It was well paced, informative, and enough time to take pictures. Michael also took photos of our family in the park and sent us copies at no additional costs. If you’re looking for a fun activity, I would recommend taking this tour with Michael.

Excellent tour (and I'm a picky rater)...
Jul 2021
We did four different tours during our trip to NYC and this was one of the top two! I'm picky when it comes to tours and usually find them to be "fine" but not special; this was different. And it's not just my opinion. Before the tour, our son (age 17) was moaning and complaining about having to go on another walking tour -- and asked if we could cancel. But even he had a great time and said it was one of the activities he enjoyed most on our trip.

Credit for all of that goes to Mike, who has the rare combination of excellent knowledge combined with an informal/easy delivery that keeps it from being too stuffy. It doesn't hurt that he has a good (dry-ish) sense of humor. :)

If you're on the fence about taking this tour, hop on over to the "Yes!" side. You won't regret it.

P.S. On the day that we scheduled our tour, nobody else was booked, so we essentially had a small 3-person private tour. That may color the experience and it certainly would be a bit less personal with a group, but I think it would still be pretty great.

We Loved our Tour! Five Stars!
Jul 2021
My husband and I took a walking tour of Central Park with Michael. We wanted to be able to walk through this beautiful park and feel like a New Yorker. Box checked! We wanted to experience, and learn about the history and details of the park. Box checked! We wanted to feel safe and have fun! Box checked! We can't say enough about this tour and we left with such an appreciation for this beautiful park. Thank you Michael! FIVE STARS!

Perfect Experience
Jun 2021 • Family
This tour was the perfect way for us to see and learn about Central Park! We decided to book this tour while already in NYC and it turned out to be one of our favorite experiences in NYC! Michael was friendly and knowledgeable. He engaged with our group of 18 year olds and held their interest.
