Our guide Benji did a great job of making the tour very personal and meaningful. He asked us questions to find out what genres and movies we liked so he could highlight them on the tour. So fun!

We loved our guide, Benji! Very knowledgeable and fun. Right way we started with history at the Plaza Hotel. Benji, our guide, was early to meet us and the blue umbrella was very helpful to spot him. Nice leisurely stroll and very picturesque! Lots of highlights of the spots made famous by TV and movies . Highly recommended this tour and Benji was great!

Loved this tour! What memories when we speak of movies we have historically loved. The guide was amazing. She actually captured our group with the tv "take" sign! My only suggestion would be put photos on a larger electronic device. The phone was very small.

Our tour guide George was magnificent! He made the tour a 5/5 rating. He knew everything and his sense of humour and kindness was very enjoyable! Hopefully you have him as your guide. This is an awesome activity to do when attending NYC.

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.

If the speal is pre written then you need to re write it. George was great but the information not so much. Home alone 1 was an ok, movie 2 was terrible so to have so many references to this go to be boring. The guide George gets 5 but the tour is a 3. Also drop the John Lennon stuff , he wasn't a film of TV star if you want to see that stuff then go alone

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.

Beautiful weather for a walk in the part. It was fun for a first time visitor and seasoned visitors as well. The tour guide was a promising actor who will no doubt be famous some day. Finish the tour with a drink at Tavern on the Green

Our Tour Guide was a young actress/singer. The group was quite large and it was sometimes hard to hear what she was saying, but she knew her movies and scenes. Would definitely put this one on your list.

A good introduction to Central Park history and a number of the films and TV filmed there. Our guide Kelsey did a good job of highlighting different locations which would mean something to the wide age range of the group. Images were shown of films on an ipad but it might have been clearer to show print outs. The group was quite large so it wasn't always possible to hear everything. The guidance given for meeting the group was perfect.
