“Great way to see all of central park”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Tour was included as part of our New York pass and was an excellent activity on our first day in Manhattan. The guide was very knowledgeable and we saw parts of the park we would not have seen exploring on foot. Highly recommended

“Great Tour Guide”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We did the Central Park Tour with Joel … it was truly a hysterical experience. You have to ride faster than we expected, and listen very intently – but it’s worth the effort. Joel packs a lot in to a 2 hour tour (he speaks fast!) – information galore, and some of the funniest acting we’ve ever seen. All round good fun.

“Beautiful park, great bikes but ...”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

On arrival there seemed to be some confusion as to which tour was being run. Was it the Arts & Architecture, Movie Scene or Central Park Tour? There seemed to be participants with an interest in each. We really just wanted some little light exercise in beautiful surroundings.

Unfortunately the guide attempted to satisfy everyone which resulted in him talking ‘nineteen to the dozen’ which detracted considerably from the enjoyment of the tour. A great deal of time was spent at the statue of Alexander Hamilton where the guide delivered a monologue on the great man. Far too much detail and it seemed delivered for the self gratification of the guide rather than the tour participants!

These comments may be slightly biased as we arrived straight from the excellent Grand Central Terminal Audio Tour which was very concise and professionally delivered.

Notwithstanding this the cycle tour is worthwhile although you may want to come equipped with ear plugs! The quality of the cycles is excellent and Central Park is one of the quintessential sites in this wonderful city.

The undoubted highlights of this tour were not only the wonderful park itself, but also the visits to Strawberry Fields and the Dakota Building.

“CAREFUL”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I don't usually make the effort to complain on Trip Advisor, but in this instance I feel it necessary. We paid the fairly expensive fee for the Central Park Movie Scene Tour based on the list of movies and tv shows that their website said we would be seeing. We were NOT interested in learning about the history of America and were certainly NOT interested in standing there and listening to a 20-minute story about American politics!! 90% of the movies & tv shows listed were not even mentioned on the tour and the ones that were mentioned were from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Although the guide (Joel) was a nice bloke, he spoke so ridiculously fast that for the majority of the time whatever he said was just a blabbering mash of words and spit. In the end it was still a nice ride through the park, but we did NOT get our money's worth and would NOT recommend this so called 'movie scene tour' to anyone.

“Great way to see the park”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We did this as it was included as park of our New York Pass. It was a bit of a last minute decision but we all really enjoyed it. For me it was the best thing we did in New York. We had 3 hours included with the NY pass and in 2h30 we did two full laps of the park, stopping frequently to take pictures/video. This is the best way to see the park as you can cover so much of it quickly and it is far more enjoyable than walking.

A great experience would definately do it again.
