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 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

This is an absolute must do activity in NYC! Ariel is fantastic. It made Central Park both memorable & special! Ariel even stopped at certain landmark locations to let my husband & I get out of the carriage & walk around to take pictures. Overall, fantastic!

Many weeks prior to our holiday, I contacted Ariel and managed to coordinate the arrangements, he would discreetly... More

I used Ariel to propose to my partner in NYC yesterday. Ariel went the extra mile and then some to ensure everything ran smoothly. I called up to book it the week before(even woke him up because of the time difference,sorry Ariel) Ariel planned everything down to a T and knew all the great spots. The ride around Central Park...

We had a great driver Adrian who happily chatted with us telling us about central park and some of the buildings around. It was cold but with the blanket across us it was fine. Adrian let us take photos at the end... More
