Full description
Visit Central Park, one of New York City’s most defining features, on a 2-hour private walking tour. With your local guide, discover the city’s history as you visit historical sites and monuments along the route, including the statue of Balto — the legendary Alaskan husky. Start your walking adventure at the Obelisk or "Cleopatra's Needle" and see the oldest man-made object standing freely in New York City, originally created for an Egyptian Pharaoh over 3000 years ago. Hear the history behind each monument from your guide as you stroll, like the story of Balto, the husky who helped indigenous communities threatened by a diphtheria epidemic. Continue to Bethesda Terrace and Bethesda Fountain, which have appeared in films like 27 Dresses and Disney’s Enchanted. Finish your tour at the Strawberry Fields memorial, near the Dakota Building, where John Lennon was tragically killed in 1980. Pay your respects to his legacy, before your guide gives you recommendations on how to spend the rest of your time in the Big Apple.
