Central Park is HUGE. Using these electric scooters was much more time efficient and way more fun than just riding a bike - not to mention, you'll see parts you're guaranteed to miss otherwise. Orin is a straightforward, great guy (we're family now, right?;)) that is full of historical info on the area and has a great sense of humor. I really can't say enough good about him and our experience (did I mention he also acted as our personal photographer throughout the tour?!) Our entire family - two adults, three teens and one kindergartner - agreed that this was the highlight of our trip!

This is a very non-standard way to experience Central Park and New York in general, which makes Cityscootz a much preferred alternative to the standard touristic activities (all those cliche horse carriages and bikes which are limited to roads only anyway). Orin is a true professional - everything is well-organized, all things/requests are taken care of. We did a trip with our 12/14 yo kids with no previous e-scooter experience and, with Orin's help, both of them managed to get up to speed quickly. Highly recommended! Thanks, Orin.

What a great way to see Central Park. Orin provides a safe trip through the park and areas i have never seen. It was really a great way to cover a lot of territory and see areas I have never seen. Peaceful. Fun. Highly recommend

My 12-yo son and I did this scooter tour of Central Park in late August and it was so much fun! I feel like there is really no other way to see the park. Other people on bikes or just walking were sweating and going slow. We were zooming around to all the best spots with the wind in our hair. Orin made sure to tell us lots of history of the different areas and took lots of pictures. He took the time to make sure my son felt comfortable on the scooter, too, which was very nice.

My husband and I took our two teens to NYC for a long weekend; they had never been there before, and both were excited to see Central Park. We booked a tour with Orin at CityScootz about a week or so ahead of time. He was easy to communicate with; the booking process was a breeze. The day of our tour, our daughter got sick. Really sick (food allergic reaction). I felt awful canceling at the last minute, but Orin was very kind and understanding and allowed us to reschedule for the next day; he even texted me later to ask if she was feeling better. When we came the next day, he had us practice a bit, and then off we went. Orin is very knowledgeable about the city and the history of the park and surrounding buildings. He was patient answering our many questions, and he took a load of really great photos (it is SO nice to have photos of all four of us that aren't "selfies")! My kids have a need for speed, and Orin did a good job of "reading" his audience...he took us flying through some of the wider bike paths, I mean really cruising! My husband and kids loved every minute! I am the cautious one in the family, but I enjoyed it, too. You simply can't see the whole park in one experience, but we got close. It was simply the best afternoon we spent in the city.
