    Great Walking Tour of Central Park
    Chris_S, Feb 2024
    Our tour guide, Michael Hunt of Central Park Environs Walking Tour, was excellent - well-informed, interesting background on the park — its layout, its history, the artistic effort that went into creating it — as well as the local politics affecting the surrounding area and buildings. Mr. Hunt was on time (early, actually) and kept our group informed and entertained for 2-3 hours. I highly recommend this tour!

    Myself and my partner did this tour during our trip to NYC - we've booked a few tours during our stay and so far, this has been the best! Michael is very informative, engaging and we both learnt a lot Yes you can walk around Central Park for free but it was great to do the tour with Michael and learn a lot about the history of the park Michael includes information about nature, celebrities, history and all-sorts during this tour Would 100% recommend for any age of person!

    What a wonderful way to begin to explore this magnificent park. Our guide, Michael, is very well-versed in the history and facts about the park. He also is very knowledgeable about the different species of trees and birds that live within this beautiful environment. I also very much enjoyed learning about its present maintenance through the Conservancy.

    Excellent tour of Central Park, Michael, our guide is brilliant! He is so knowledgeable about the park, its design, the origins and construction of it, the significance of the art and sculptures, the benches, the various structures and elements of the park, as well as the birds and the trees! Very informative, and his appreciation of it and the efforts to preserve it is infectious.
