Phillip was just such a funny and interesting guide who knew so much about ‘his office’ as he called it. Very enjoyable and informative trip. Many thanks 👏🏻

Great tour!
Tamera_R, Apr 2024
Highly recommend—great way to see the park with brief history as well. Options to upgrade to electric bike as well.
Great time in central park
Michelle_C, Mar 2024
Philip was our guide and was knowledgeable about the park. We enjoyed learning about the history of the park and seeing the park from different viewpoints. The weather was gorgeous and the cherry blossoms and daffodils were a treat to see in bloom. I loved hearing about the different movies filmed in the park and seeing the locations in person. We showed up for the tour a few minutes late due to getting caught in St Patrick's Day parade traffic and the tour company was very understanding. My husband enjoyed the electric bike while others in our party used the standard bikes. There was only one hill that I found a little steep and challenging on the standard bike as I am older in age but was able to manage it. We really had a nice time on this tour and I would recommend it.
Don’t regret but could have been better.
Suzanne_K, Mar 2024
Guide was good, and bikes in good condition, but the shop people who checked us in were not friendly and did not communicate among themselves well, asking us multiple times for our receipts (after we had shown them, multiple times). Also, tour size was supposed to be capped at 15, but they threw in extra riders so we had at least 20 in our group which took away some from the experience. I would still recommend but didn’t appreciate the issues above.
Postponed due to too good weather?
DannyPlaisier, Feb 2024
Well the tour was suddenly postponed due to the weather. Although there was a clear sky. No refunding possible so what else can you do than change our plans? Apart from the tour, not done!
Great tour
Huseyin_G, Jan 2024
This tour was brilliant to be able to see everything within 2 hours was great and it didn't feel like we was on a bike for ages we had constant stops for pictures
A brilliant tour!
Robyn_H, Nov 2023
A fantastic bike ride through Central Park. Loved every minute. We saw all the highlights of the park with very good commentary. Thank you.
Great tour, highly recommend.
Randy_R, Nov 2023
Philip, the guide from Bulgaria was very enjoyable. I've biked in Central Park 5-8 times on my own on past trips and learned so much from Philip and the tour. Plus I did the first tour out and was a single. Cried at the Lennon Spot. Very moving.
Phillip was a great tour guide……
Carol_O, Nov 2023

Phillip was awesome! He set a pace that was good for all, ck'd our bikes before we left & went over safety rules. Had the right # of photo stops/breaks. Best of all he was friendly & knowledgeable, not only about park but N.Y. & history. Thank you Philip!

There were key sites we wanted to see in Central Park and this tour hit them all! Even with a race being held that morning we were able to maneuver the park.

Not worth it but the weather was poor
Russell_t, Sep 2023
Terrible Western but we were willing to still go for the tour , we were taken on a short ride saw a couple of spots and then taken back so it was not worth the cost.
Enjoyable ride thru the Park
Roberta_B, Sep 2023
Fun ride through Central Park. Our guide was informative and fun and kept us all safe. As born and bred New Yorkers, we saw parts of the park we never saw before. Very cool and great way to spend a crisp Fall day.

Great, easy bike tour. Our tour guide, Philip was knowledgeable and able to accommodate, bikers, Ebikers and scooters! We saw a the major sites and had time to stop and take pictures. Loved it - just the right amount of time. Bikes should be more updated but not really an issue.

Ann_T, Aug 2023
Central Park was way too crowded to my taste for bike riding.."……………………. Not as pleasant as had hoped
Great tour from New Yorker , Benny !
Justin_C, Aug 2023
Excellent tour from local New Yorker Benny who has 15 years of tour experience. We couldn’t believe our luck at the Dakota Building stop, when Sean Lennon emerged to get into his car ! Amazing stuff Benny ! Thanks !
Wonderful experience!!!
