Carriage tours are really a tourist trap but they have lasted the test of time. Plenty to choose from. Interesting tour guides.

Myself and my husband visited New York in May and a horse and carriage trip in central park was on my bucket list. Our driver Frank Rodden was absolutely fantastic. He was so chatty and told us so much about the surroundings. His horse Pickles was adorable. Frank really made this experience excellent for us and I would highly recommend asking for him if you are looking to book this. Fantastic experience. Rita

We caught a carriage at the South East corner of Central Park. It was a nice and sunnt day in May. We had an interesting conversation with our well-traveled, friendly driver of Irish descent. We talked about the sights we passed, New York and politics. And I could pay with a credit card; which was great. But all in all; I would say that 54 dollars is too expensive for a 20 minute ride through the park. It's better to walk.

Frank was delightful. After running the gauntlet of salesmen trying to talk me out of the horse carriage and into a people powered carriage, I was directed to Frank. He has a wicked sense of humor and is quite informative. He seemed to enjoy his job and has been doing it forever. He knows history, misc. facts, gossip and rock & roll anecdotes. It was relaxing.

I prebooked online, a 45min carriage for Chritmas Day at 10 am, as requested we arrived at 9.45 - but due to bad organisation we did not get in a carriage until 10.15 and then the ride only lasted for 30 mins . Also I discovered the company actually charged my credit card for 2 carriages instead of just 2 people. They have refused to return my calls or emails. Extremely disappointed -

First of all Christmas Day is an extremely hectic day for us, one of the busiest days of the year. Secondly I have checked my records and I have gotten back to you and there is no double charge. If you can email me a copy of your credit card statement that shows where you were charged twice by "Central Park Carriage Company" then by all means you will receive a refund but there are many companies out there with very similar names.
