Our guide, Max, was great! We saw so many landmarks in Central Park and he kindly took our photos during the stops. Highly recommended if you are wanting to get an overview of Central Park in an efficient manner.

Activity was ok but short. Less than 20minutes. Rider took lovely pictures. But it is highly overpriced at over $100. I expected way more.

Moni was an excellent tour guide. He had lots of great information and we had a really enjoyable tour.

the tour guide made it more entertaining and full of knowledge

Great experience, knowledgeable guides, fun photo spots.
