I was not disappointed in the ride, but very disappointed, in the park! it was Christmas time and I thought the park would have lights. I thought during the booking, it said “a Christmas light tour.” We took the trip at night, so we would see the lights. I love horse carriage rides. This one I would take during the day so you can see the park.

Niko arrived on time and made us very welcome. He was super friendly and very knowledgable - he shared lots of facts about the park and New York as well as his own experiences. Jack was a great horse and full of character. Highly recommend. Was a lovely experience for my birthday.

I can’t think there has been anything that made our family more happy than this! The rates were cheap, our guide, Nikko was so knowledgeable and our horse, Jack was so cute and had the best personality too. We felt like royalty in our private carriage strolling though Central Park. Thank you!
