I proposed to my now fiance last week. I was stressing out about who to book for the proposal horse and carriage ride. I am from Alabama, and I had never been to New York so I was pretty nervous. I decided to book the ride with Ariel, and it was the best decision I made on the whole trip.... More

Ariel was a lovely tour guide with 35 years of experience. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. He was very photo gracious, knowledgeable of the city, of horses and their care and a true pleasure to meet. He even had lights on the carriage that lit up and was decorated nicely. He took good care of his horse and... More

The carriage ride was absolutely wonderful and the proposal was a complete surprise to me! We are from Florida, and my fiancé and Ariel had spoken for months prior to plan this. Not only did Ariel do a great job at taking pictures without me catching on, but he then took us down a gorgeous path near the lake, and... More

It was FRIGID COLD! But we enjoyed our ride very much. We loved hearing the history of the park--would have loved to hear even more. We enjoyed the stop where we walked under the bridge and out onto the fountain patio. Unbelievable little gem! My only complaint is that Ariel booked us at a certain time, and we didn't get... More

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
