Took a ride

The ride was nice enough. It was a little pricey for the time but it's New York City. The park is nice and the temperature was very warm for December. Overall nice enough.

We had a terrific time on this iconic and leisurely ride through Central Park. The driver was very pleasant and the carriage was nice. The horse was very gentle and appeared in excellent condition. Experience this before that commie nut deblasio gets rid of it.

This was on the honeymoon to do list. Although I enjoyed the ride and the somewhat skewed information the driver gave us, the charge ($120 plus tip!!) for a 40 minute ride which hardly covered any of the park and we really didn't see anything was a bit much. After travelling from Sydney, Australia it just wasn't up to what... More

Spent $50 for a twenty minute ride through Columbus Circle and then back through the park. I believe they call it the Standard ride. Good amount of time for a four year old. She liked it a lot. The driver did a good job of being friendly and getting my daughter involved in the experience -- she got to hold... More

A trip through Central Park via these carriages is an experience but it's really a very overpriced experience. A 40 minute trip half way into the park and back cost US $90 which is just a little steep

Even in the middle of August it's just beautiful to ride around and get to see the park at a comfortable pace. The short ride was shorter than Id expected so next time Id probably go for the longer option.

Although it CAN be pricey, it doesnt have to be you have the option to bargain down for a half ride (usually 20 minutes to 1/2 hour). I've done this everytime Ive gone to New York and I have yet to have a bad experience...once the horses werent available due to near 100 degree weather in 2011 but they still... More

Ok $50 maybe a bit steep but what a great way to see the park. On a cold crisp day wrapped up in a velvet blanket. So romantic. Worth it as great memories and photos of a great experience.

It is a great experience to take a ride in the traditional horse & buggy outside of Central Park. This was the second time I did it. My first experience was much better. Your driver can make or break the experience. First driver took us through Central Park and the streets and provided us with an endless source of information... More
