Juan did a fantastic job teaching our tour about some of the rich history of Central Park. My daughter and I came away with an appreciation of the park and the ethos of the area. Time well spent.

Great tour, but even the worst tour in the world in Central Park will be awesome. The Conservancy runs the park pretty much, so they're really the experts. Great to hear stuff directly from the source.
