per group up to 4
Although my husband has been to NYC many times, this was my first time in NYC. As exciting and adventurous as my trip to NYC was, one of my favorite things was going to Central Park. Not just going to the park, but going to the park on a horse drawn carriage and being able to see a good portion of the park while the guide narrated and outlined for us the history of the park and many things in it. It was one of the most thrilling and enjoyable activities I have ever been on. Lori our guide was fantastic, her carriage was clean and organized, and she was professional and friendly. We truly truly enjoyed our carriage ride and getting to know Lori and Milo... please pass this review on to her so she knows ... a must do in New York, if your love horse drawn carriage rides.. we will definitely be doing this again ....

How do I begin!!!! It was truly beautiful. Our tour guide (Andy) was wonderful, professional and very attentive to our needs and comfort during our tour. He provided us with a blanket to keep us warm, as it was raining off and on. He pointed out the different locations where television and movie productions used the site as well as an historic overview of the park and the communities living around the park. We also saw a couple getting married in one of the gazebo over a small stream. At the end of the tour Andy allowed me to pet and feed his horse (Cynthia).
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)
Shah the tour guide was so friendly and welcoming. He gave a lot of information and gave us plenty of time to walk and explore parts of Central Park. It was easy to locate the meeting point and Shah came to find us right on time. I thoroughly enjoyed this I would definitely recommend this experience to others.
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!
