      George was an absolute delight. He was knowledgable, funny and very professional. Would definitely do this tour again the next time we are in New York.

      Tour guide would benefit from a microphone as it was difficult to hear him. Also locations chosen to stop and talk were very noisy. Good and interesting knowledge on the park and movies.

      We had a great time. It was a little complicated to find the meetup location but we got there in the end. The guide was very knowledgeable and we got to see some parts of the park we had never seen before;)

      This was a great walk through the park. We saw all of the “big” sites in the park; Bethesda fountain, the mall, the boathouse, strawberry fields, Wollman rink. And our guide Max was great. He did a great job showing us all the sites and keeping us entertained. So fun to see where so many iconic movies were filmed.

      Our guide was great. I am so sorry I couldn't remember his name. At the end of our tour he did a great impression of Jim Carey. The park is huge and without the guide we will just be strolling in just another park. There were so many movies that were shoot here. Our guide will show us some movie scenes on his iPad on the location that we went through. He will give us time for toilet and camera stop. Overall, it was a great experience.

      On reflection I dont think we needed a guide to see the sights in Central Park - we could have walked this ourselves.

    • 12-Oct-2017

      Great tour, again very knowledgeable guide with funny stories and willing to help with photos.
      Saw great sights that I wouldn't have found.
      Definitely.a must do if you plan to have a day around Central Park.
