Great way to tour the park! Do it!!

Philip was a wonderful guide!!! We had so much fun and he gave a great and funny narrative of the park! So glad we did this instead of the other options! We would have gone back if not for the rain! 😞

Very poor guide and organization! Don’t book this tour!

The guide on this tour was poor. She was not a real host, she just drove away and did not pay attention if everyone was able to follow. And she had a strong french accent, which was difficult to understand. When we asked her to speak slower, she neglected that and said in an arrogant way that she never got conplaints. When we were half way, again I asked her to speak slower, snd tgen she got angry and told us that we did not listen to her. We had enough of this and left the tour and drove back to the rental. DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR!

Our guide had a very heavy French accent and was difficult to find understand, she had an e-bike and sped ahead of the group which pressured everyone to try to catch her for fear of losing her. There were only a few stops with little explanation and we were just left to wander around on our own for 10 minutes. It was a beautiful day in Central Park, too bad we didn’t get to learn more about the beautiful place. Next time we will just rent bikes and your on our own.

We are a family of 4 with the youngest member who is 8. We signed up for a family tour. Our guide was very inconsiderate. The 8 year old was a little slow while riding up the hill and the guide was frustrated that she caused the group to slow down! My husband’s bicycle chain came off and the guide was visibly angry at my husband in front of the entire group for it!! We are not expert bike riders and we’re there for vacation. We would have enjoyed the whole experience much more if the guide was professional!

Wasn't worth the money.

The tour left late and it ended early. The guide skipped one of the stops on the tour. (Not sure why since the weather was good and we had the time.) The park is beautiful but next time I will rent a bike and pedal around w/out a tour guide. Sorry to say, it was not worth the money.

Missed stops pour tour
Amy_A
, Mar 2022
We did not get to stop at all the stops listed in the description. It was very difficult to hear our guid speak as he did not talk loud enough. He also often spoke more of the building and things around the park verses the park. He would talk briefly about the stop or things in the park but wouldn’t talk about them while we were by them. It was very frustrating and also hard to retain or get much information. Our guid happened to get a flat tire which was unfortunate. Our guide skipped Belverede castle, the bow bridge, and cherry hill. We also got back 30 minutes late which was a problem when we had other events and tickets planned for the day. Our group was disappointed in the experience.

We’ve had a great bike tour with guide Edward who showed us all around Central Park and even navigated us Dutchies to some extra challenging paths to bike through the forest

We had a an absolutely great tour of Central Park with Edward. He was very informative and clearly passionate about his city. A bike tour seems like the best way to see most of the park if you are visiting NYC, you would need to visit several times to see all of it! The rental bikes were also very good quality. Overall one of the most pleasant bike rides I’ve had!

Central Park family Bike ride

Our tour was an amazing experience! Got to ride bikes around the most famous park with great history given by our tour guide Phillip. Phillip was great, he was kind enough to take pics of us, gave the history of the park and pointed out structures that were filmed :) I highly recommend this tour, my daughter (13) was able to complete it and was not too hard for her.

We had a wonderful time. Felt very safe riding in the park. We went on a day that had some rain earlier in the morning and it made for a extra beautiful and fresh feel, so don’t let a little weather scare you off. Our guide was Philip and he was great. Seeing Central Park from a bike is very different from seeing it on foot or by carriage. I highly recommend this tour. The bike shop is just one block from the park entrance and you walk your bikes to the park, so no biking in city traffic is needed.

Biking in Central Park.
Michaela_B
, Nov 2021
Beautiful autumn Colour’s. Nice spots, got some historical information at every spot. Friendly guide. We were all bikers with bad condition and our guide was the only one with an e-bike. Her speed was to high for us. So she told us that we go slower, but she always biked off and had to wait for us at the next stop. That didn’t feel very togetherly. Because of our slower speed we did only a small part of the park which we understand but that could have been told in the information at forehand. This way it felt a bit disappointing.

Thanks for sharing your experience. We're sorry to hear that you felt a bit disappointed with your tour. Your comments will be shared with our guides so in the future we can make sure that we get the right balance between seeing as many things as possible and moving at a speed that's comfortable for everyone. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon

Disappointed
Delitha_J

Booked this tour the night before and upon arrival to the bike shop was informed my tour was not on the books. The guy working said it was his 1st day, no one was there that has been working and I could wait an hour. Decided to just get the bikes and go as I was on a timed schedule. Was not offered a helmet or basket. Disappointed in this tour as I wanted a tour guide. Not a happy customer.

Thank you for sharing your feedback, we're sorry to hear you were disappointed with your experience with us. Unfortunately, since our reservations team only works from 9am to 5pm daily, any reservations made in the middle of the night won't be seen until the next morning, which in your case didn't leave us any time to find a guide available for your tour. We would love the opportunity to make things up to you though, if you're ever back in the area we hope to get a second chance.

Don’t Do It!!
Allison_F

The guide showed up 30 minutes late so our 120 minute tour was only 90. They said they’d prorate it but then didn’t and instead offered us another free 2 hour ride. The guide didn’t introduce himself, didn’t make sure all participants were with the group before leaving and made sexist comments as “jokes.” The bikes weren’t great. My brakes didn’t work well, another woman’s chain broke and a third person’s handlebars came loose. I’d highly recommend NOT taking this tour.

Riding through the park and knowing the history and facts about it all. It was exciting to see where all the movies took place. Seeing that it’s such an iconic spot.
