“Getting to know Central Park”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I never imagined there was so much to learn about the history of Central Park! We were a small group and Geovanni was an excellent guide, very enthusiastic about the park and it´s history, he knew all of the secrets and let us in on many details in a very pleasing way. But not only did we learn about the park, we also learned about the history of New York City, which made it even more interesting and fun. I highly recommend Better Adventures Tours for a different and relaxed way of getting to know important parts of this incredible city.

My husband and I, along with another couple took our first ever walking tour. We met Giovanni and our group by Central Park. It was fantastic and we highly recommend him and will defiitely do another one. From the very beginning, Giovanni engaged all of us asking us how much we knew about Central Park. We all learned that we did not know very much. He is obviously passionate about his job as he is energetic, personable, interesting, incredibly knowledgeable about every detail of Central Park that we stopped at. H walked backwards the entire tour so he never had his back to us and could talk the entire tour and answer our questions. He had pictures of what Central Park used to look like and explained to us how it became what it is today. He gave us great recommendations of where to eat and places to see. It was a great experience and we will definitely look do go on another tour with him.

“Absolutely Delightful Walking Tour of NYC's Central Park”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Geovanni is a phenomenal tour guide. Whether about Central Park history or tibits of info about life in and around the park, the tour, even for us life-long residents of the metropolitan area, was such fun and so informative. This is a "gotta do" thing. Furthermore, Geovanni is a good businessman in terms of adjusting for an order snafu we made.

“Let Elizabeth introduce you to Central Park!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Even if you've lived in NY your whole life I encourage you to take the Central Park Walking Tour, preferably with Elizabeth. She is an incredibly knowledgeable, thoroughly engaging tour guide. Her enthusiasm for Central Park and her passion for NY in general make her a tremendous asset to Better Adventure Tours. The tour itself took us to many places in Central Park we'd never seen before, something we weren't quite expecting as native New Yorkers. The pace was perfect; it was a lovely stroll through a gorgeous park in a beautiful city. Whether you're just visiting or you want a little home town exploration, this tour is well worth taking.

The tour with Geovanni was informative, fun and a great way to see a part of New York City. He is knowledgable and shows how much he also enjoys what he does. I am planning on taking more tours with him.
