What people are saying about Central Park
Superb trip and superb value for money. Jay (travel guide) was excellent and so helpful. We covered more than originally shown on the trip and as I mentioned at the time, "This trip exceeded my expectations". Jay also provided additional info and links via a printout to help with getting show tickets etc. 5 Star trip and 5 star travel guide. Highly recommended.
Shah the tour guide was so friendly and welcoming. He gave a lot of information and gave us plenty of time to walk and explore parts of Central Park. It was easy to locate the meeting point and Shah came to find us right on time. I thoroughly enjoyed this I would definitely recommend this experience to others.
Buddy did an amazing job. His overall knowledge was great. He was very interactive and explained many of the highlights in and around the park fro historical to movies. I would recommend highly!! Hey Buddy your travelers from Buffalo!! ☺
Provided you with great information in an entertaining way. The guides were informative well beyond the scope of telling what it was. I enjoy the historical perspective with a touch of humour added.
Louis was our driver and Dante our horse. It was a great adventure and we are horse people, so we loved getting to learn about how the horses are chosen, get vacation, etc. Thanks!
