Jeremy was our guide, he was very knowledgable and kept up a good pace. I am from Queens, took this tour with my family visiting. Even as someone that is from New York city it was fun listening to the facts and history of central park. Made me appreciate it even more. Recommend for sure!
Amazing walking tour of CP

We did a tour of CP, and it could not not have been better. I have lived in NYC for almost a decade, and I still learned so much. The tour was informative, fun and not static. I liked the tour so much that I plan to do future walking tours with the company.
Beautiful walk through...
