Although my husband has been to NYC many times, this was my first time in NYC. As exciting and adventurous as my trip to NYC was, one of my favorite things was going to Central Park. Not just going to the park, but going to the park on a horse drawn carriage and being able to see a good portion of the park while the guide narrated and outlined for us the history of the park and many things in it. It was one of the most thrilling and enjoyable activities I have ever been on. Lori our guide was fantastic, her carriage was clean and organized, and she was professional and friendly. We truly truly enjoyed our carriage ride and getting to know Lori and Milo... please pass this review on to her so she knows ... a must do in New York, if your love horse drawn carriage rides.. we will definitely be doing this again ....

How do I begin!!!! It was truly beautiful. Our tour guide (Andy) was wonderful, professional and very attentive to our needs and comfort during our tour. He provided us with a blanket to keep us warm, as it was raining off and on. He pointed out the different locations where television and movie productions used the site as well as an historic overview of the park and the communities living around the park. We also saw a couple getting married in one of the gazebo over a small stream. At the end of the tour Andy allowed me to pet and feed his horse (Cynthia).
A comfortable ride took us to Dyker Heights, where we took photos of the many decorated homes. The guide asked for a significant tip at the end of the tour, which I found unsettling as it was definitely not a tipping situation and neither her nor the driver had done anything out of the ordinary to please us - plus the tour is pretty expensive, considered it's basically a 2-hour ride in a bus.
Nice to get to go up close and see the wonderful job on lights that these people do. Absolutely best way for touds as well.risty types to make this in. No need to try to navigate subway to Brooklyn and then find your way from there. Guide was very informative and entertaining. Got to see lots of surrounding neighborhoo
The tour was fantastic. Both our guide and our driver were excellent. Especially as we had my daughter in a wheelchair and they couldn't do enough to make sure that she enjoyed the experience as much as everyone else. Very much appreciated. Thank you
