Our driver was called Idris. He obviously does this day in day out. He was so unanimated when telling us about the park. He didn’t speak very loud either so we couldn’t really hear him. We didn’t expect life and soul but someone who was a little interested in their job would have been nice. The carriage was beautiful and Harry (horse) was absolutely gorgeous.

Fantastic ride with Niko & Jack! Despite a bit of rainy weather at the beginning, it was still very enjoyable; Niko was very informative and shared old and new pictures of each landmark as we came across them. The short stops were welcome and allowed for additional pictures to be taken. Will remember this as a highlight of our trip to NYC!

A sunny day, what more could you ask for. We walked from Riu Plaza Times Square to Central Park. Our guide Nico was very charming, explained a lot and didn't just run through a program. We added another 20 minutes to the carriage ride, which means we liked it. The horse (this is also important) and the carriage were in good condition. Gladly again.
