I would highly recommend the Central Park Scooter tour. We were a group of 3 ranging in ages from 20’s - 60’s and all really enjoyed the tour. Philip the guide was really knowledgeable about the park, gave great information and left lots of time at the different stops for a look around/take pics etc. A lovely way to spend the morning and a great way to see so much of the park and cover so much ground in 2 hours.

We had a great experience with our guide Philip on this 2 hour tour of central park. The bike rental company is great. I fully recommend this activity if you want to have a quick introduction to the park, then go back there to admire the site and share a moment with the squirrels and turtles.

Had a great time on the scooter tour. Scooter was easy to use and run to ride. Felipe, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided great information about the park. I highly recommend this tour!

Great tour and great experience on the electric scooters. Just for intetest...google Birkenhead Park..in England. Central park was modelled on it. Would reccommend this tour

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