    Turned up on and waited for fifteen minutes in the cold. No show from guide. No contact from anyone since, even though I requested a refund two days ago.

    I organised to do the lower Central Park running tour on my first full day in New York. City Running Tours were very helpful and quick to reply to some email questions I had before booking. As it turned out I was the only person on the tour along with my guide Jill. The tour was at an easy pace perfectly suited to sightseeing and chatting as we went . We stopped at a few places as we went for photos and information about the sights. Jill was friendly and very knowledgeable about the park. Overall it was a great introduction to New York and Central Park. Highly recommended

    Great morning with our guide, Donna, on the Central Park running tour. Covered a lot of the park and learned a lot too. The park was empty and the perfect pace for me to have a comfortable conversation and see a lot of the park. Donna explained the sites and we stopped multiple times and took pictures. Highly recommend!

    The two hours run felt like half an hour, because it was just an amazing time. I learned so many stunning things in that short time you don't learn on many other tours. The guide was also very friendly and you could talk and chat with him very nice. It was a unique experience and I can recommend this tour to everyone who is staying in New York and wants to learn some things about the incredible Central Park.

    Loved the running tour of Central Park. What a great way to learn more about New York City and the park itself while being active and getting a nice run in. David was a wonderful guide for the morning and I learned a lot of interesting information. Highly recommend both David, this tour and this company.

    Michael took my daughter and me on a fantastic run in Central Park, just before Christmas. Chatty and friendly, he made the miles fly by and fly we did. The fastest I have managed in a long, long time. A wonderul way to start the day!! Thanks!!

    I did the Central park 4 mile run with Jeff last week and loved it. I’m not a very fast runner but Jeff let me set the pace. He started by giving me an overview of the area and then we ran through various parts of the park, stopping to see attractions and hear the history of them and take photos. I had always wanted to run in Central Park but worried about getting lost and not being able to see much of it so this was the perfect way to do it – it was a run and a tour in one. If I go back to New York I will definitely book another running tour.

    I had another incredible running tour experience. My guide Michael was professional, informed, pleasant, and helpful. I highly recommend this tour.

    As a novice runner and visiting NYC I thought there was no better way to see Central Park but on foot so why not run , I found City Running Tours on line on made my booking . Really straight forward process with detailed information on return. I met my guide on the morning of my run and off we went , Michael was very patient with me as I just plod around lol , he gave me a run down of any places of interest along the route with great knowledge and some amazing photo opportunities. I would have no issue on recommending this tour company , I would have never have discovered how beautiful and the vastness of the park otherwise lol and if out on my own I probably have got lost or given up , Micheal was very friendly and chatted away , even if I couldn’t lol and the refreshments at the end were much appreciated. Until next time thank you so much Estelle - Craigavon Lakers NI
