This was worth every penny! Even though it rained it was such a special thing to do. My daughter and grandson were with me and they loved it . Shadow was a great horse and Onar was a great driver. The lights of the city were beautiful! Onar gave us all kind of facts and info about the city and Central Park.. The only thing that would have made it better was if there was a speaker inside the carriage for when the weather doesn’t cooperate so you could hear him speaking. I’ve wanted to do this all my life and it was even better than I had imagined!!! Thank you Onar and Shadow!

Very cool experience. Very cold but well worth the time. Driver took is on loop through the city that you don’t get to see from the sidewalk or a cab.

Our driver had very poor communication skills. We pre booked and prepaid for our night time ride. Towards the end some random people asked for a ride and he told them to meet him at the corner. Where he proceeded to kick us off and picked them up. Causing us to walk a few blocks in the freezing cold back to the point we were supposedto be dropped off at. I personallywould have gone with a different company had I known our driver, named: Ilan, was going to be so rude. The ride would have be absolutely perfect otherwise
