It was fun and we felt like royalty being ridden around in a Horse Drawn Carriage. Truth is the Park is just way too big to see all the good spots in one day on foot so I am very happy we went for it.

Really relaxing tour round Central Park. Clean carriage and warm blanket was useful in February. Colm and Ende were very knowledgeable about local celebrities apartments and film shooting locations and were willing to stop for photos as needed. Only downside was that it would have been significantly cheaper to walk up and ride, than to book in advance and there was plenty of availability off season (although probably a very different story in summer)
Wonderful tour guide and amazing experience! She was very knowledgeable and friendly and even stopped a few times to take loads of pictures! Relationship between horse and rider was clearly very good. The carriage was in lovely condition and with blankets lovely and warm!
Great experience, easy enough to find, driver was friendly and new lots about Central Park and New York. Would definitely book again!
Had our ride with Luis and Dante. Very nice and friendly. Gave us really good informations about Central Park and other attractions.
Very beautiful and well taken care of horse and the owner was so nice and informative
