New York City: Highlights of Central Park Bike Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
Always fun to ride a bike ! But, even more fun with having a very knowledgeable historian for a tour guide... Otherwise you will just be riding your bike around Central Park... You will not know what everything is... Dan not only pointed out the various sights and attributes of Central Park but was able to explain what they were how they got there and answer our questions... This was a very worthwhile activity, and the fact that I did it the first day of my trip really helped because then I got some good ideas of what to do the rest of the trip .Be sure to ask for Dan !
The only tricky bit was finding the meeting point ! However when I rang the help line they contacted our guide who found us. This tour was excellent: our guide was really knowledgeable, he took our photo in all the great spots allowed us to walk to the areas he couldn’t access if we wanted to and even dropped us at the subway. We had wanted to book a horse and carriage but actually this was more than twice the price and as the horses seemed to know their way we noticed that many of the drivers were on their phones! Just remember to wrap up warm if you go in the winter!
4 of us took the tour together around central park. 2 people in each pedicab. Victor had the microphone so he narrated the trip as they cycled together. The trip was totally enjoyable, the weather was cold but beautiful and crisp. The 2 hours flew by. We really got a feel for the park and the pleasure it provides to so many. Recognised many locations from movies but didn't bump into anyone of interest ! would highly recommend this to anyone vusiting NYC.
I can honestly say that I really enjoyed this tour of Central Park with the very knowledgeable Dan. As a very (very!) occasional cyclist the level of the tour was pitched just right, and it helped that we picked the perfect sunny day. We finished the tour with a short ride from the park back to Unlimited Biking though some of New York's busiest streets which was definitely an experience not to be missed!!
Our guides name was Herbert! He was unbelievable. I have toured the park many times with other pedi cab drivers and horse and carriage and bikes or walked myself. I wanted a friend to experience the park who has never been. He was fantastic!
