Jeremy met us at the Sherman Statue at the entrance of Central Park and then gave us a wonderful tour of the park with so much knowledge and interesting facts. I had previously had a tour of the park on a pedicab but this tour was way more informative an interesting.

One of the highlights of our stay in New York!

Our guide, Jeremy, knows Central Park like the back of his hand and gave us a great tour showing us all the points of interest. Very helpful with questions and trivia, route was easy to walk with places to stop for water and take lots of photos. Would definitely recommend to both locals and New York first timers.

We did a tour of CP, and it could not not have been better. I have lived in NYC for almost a decade, and I still learned so much. The tour was informative, fun and not static. I liked the tour so much that I plan to do future walking tours with the company.

‘Jeremy’ arrived to meet us with the biggest smile! Only us 3 (me, hubby & son) on the tour. A wonderful morning spent . Jeremy was so knowledgable about the Park and NYs history . His file full of pictures gave a great insight into the design, build and makeup of Central Pk. 100% recommend the tour - with Jeremy. NB: the horse carriages and pedicabs can’t access the majority of Park areas - walking is the only way 😉

We did the Central Park Walking Tour early January with Jeremy as our guide.
What a great tour and definitely well worth doing, we had all been to Central Park before but this tour really gave us an insight to the history of the park and many interesting facts and old photos to see how the park and surrounding New York looked back then.
Jeremy was a wonderful guide and we would highly recommend. Meeting place was also very easy to find.

Our family booked the walking tour and we were lucky enough to have Jeremy as our guide. His knowledge of the Park was really amazing and he even showed us pictures now and then on the route of what it looked like long ago. He was patient and answered all of our questions. The length of the tour was just right. This was a very good value for the price!
