The classic New York Central Park ride

Very knowledgeable and entertaining driver. A nice trip around the highlights of Central Park. Helpful to book in advance during crowded times.

My boyfriend (now fiance!) worked with Ariel to set up a carriage ride and a proposal. Ariel was AWESOME!! He was so slick when it came to taking pictures of us and took us to a beautiful spot near the lake, when my fiance got down on his knee I was not expecting it! It was the best surprise and... More

Surprised my girlfriend with a carriage ride in Central Park. Ariel was very helpful from the moment he called me to arrange the ride. His price was very reasonable even with the roses and chocolate. Ariel lets you enjoy the moment and does not intrude unless you ask questions. However he was very helpful in taking pictures when needed.

Ariel our driver with his beautiful horse Rebecca gave us a near midnight horse and cart ride around New Yorks Central Park in the rain. Ariel was so kind and told us all about the history of the park and how it came to being. Really enjoyed this tradition of this a romantic horse ride.

Ariel made our trip to New York a very memorable one!! He went out of his way to make our carriage ride special!! It was a special trip for me, my 2 sons (8 & 10) and my mother and he made it even better. His knowledge of New York and his calm nature put us at ease in such... More

Towards the end of a 10 day stay in New York (Manhattan) we decided to take a ride on a horse and carriage through Central Park. We had walked through the park earlier in the week but a carriage ride would enable us to see the park in a different way. We managed to secure a carriage ridden by Gerry... More

We booked the green line ride- 55 minutes for $110. The carriage was clean and comfortable, and Joe was our driver. We saw many places where famous films had been made, and Joe was incredibly knowledgeable. The pace was perfect. Only complaint was that Joe's conversation was non stop and rather political.

I booked a romantic horse & carriage ride as a belated birthday gift for my girlfriend, and we both had the best experience, being taken around Central Park by Ariel the Driver & Winston the Horse. It was a fantastic, relaxed trip that left us both extremely pleased. Thank you, Ariel (and Winston)!

We were so excited to relive our wedding of a horse drawn carriage ride through Central Park. Our hopes were dashed upon arrival, during tour, & conclusion. We made reservations online to secure a time slot. We called the driver and he told us where he was and the carriage color. I think we had the ugliest carriage at Central... More
