Our guide, Omar, took us around to see the main highlights in Central Park: the ice-skating rink, Strawberry Fields, statues, lakes, and the sites of many movies. His pedicab is comfortable, and he allowed us time at a few stops to take pictures. He took pictures for us, and told us a lot of the history of the park.

We had a group of four so we had two pedicabs. Both drivers were fantastic!! Bill was incredible, he was very friendly and was happy to take pictures at all the sights! Ali was also great he was very funny and super informative about the park. Overall a 10/10 experience and would definitely recommend.

It’s well worth it! Loved every minute. Our tour guide Chris asked what we were more interested in and catered the whole experience to what was appealing to us. He also took his time. He also took amazing photos. Let us take our time and take “selfies” as well and take in what was all around.

We booked for the hour tour and our guide was brilliant. He explained and showed us all the key sites on the tour and took loads of photos of us.

although windy and chill, we managed to hit almost all important dpots of the park
