learned a lot,about central park , certainly more than just renting a bike on our own. big thanks for our guide Alp, who brought back my wife's bike back when she had issue and wasn't able to ride back to the start point

Ed was a great guide, personal and knowledgeable. I saw parts of the park I’ve never seen and it was so gorgeous. I’m not a great biker but I did just fine and had a fun experience to put in my memory bank.

Very nice involved and passionate guide who could tell and explain clearly and fascinatingly, did not pay much attention to the time.

Been to nyc many times. And wished we had done this the first day of our first trip. So much new information

Awesome experience, my son and I had a lot of fun!
