I booked a scooter tour as my mum has some mobility issues and I thought it might be easier than walking but on arrival she had a bit of a meltdown about riding the scooter. Philip our guide was so kind, he adapted to a walking tour and showed us the main sights of the park with some history. It was a great tour and I’m sure it was hard to suddenly adapt the tour. We really appreciated it and would highly recommend any tour with Philip.

What a great experience—we wouldn’t have missed this for anything!! Phillip was our guide and he was terrific—very helpful and concerned about those of us who had not ridden a scooter before. He was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Don’t miss the opportunity to do this—it’s a New York City highlight for sure!!

We loved this tour!! It was cold and a little rainy and we still had a great time. Loved our guide and would book with this company again! Our 22 yo, 14 and 13 year olds had an easy and fun time! Us parents held on for dear life, but so much better than walking. Vrooooooom!

Philip is a great tour guide- knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Would recommend- would also recommend wrapping your warm … brrrr!

We had such a brilliant time - our guide Felipe was amazing. Everything was well organised - the best thing we did!
