Max, the host, was informative, friendly, easy to hear, and fun to walk around the park with. He was sensitive to our durability in the heat(we went on the 98' day!) and even treated all 13 of us to a cold water and ice cream. Although I live in...continued

He knows his stuff cold. Despite the on/off rain we still had a great time. He keeps the pace moving and is always pointing out facts (even to jaded New Yorker like me).

Max provided us with the greatest tour of Central Park. He went over and above what a tour guide should be expected to do or know. I am a native new yorker who has been to Central Park a million times. In 3 hours, I did not visit or know of any of...continued

Max revealed so many unique details about the park that I would have never known if I walked it on my own. I can't wait to go back to the East part and explore some more.

As a native New Yorker who has appreciated, but not been really familiar with, Central Park, I decided to take the City Rover tour. Normally, I avoid tours at any cost, hating crowds and preferring a low key approach. Max, at City Rover, made it...continued

it was terrific. It was over 3 hours long and worth every minute. A 3 mile tour on foot but we never seemed to get tired . A few rest stops but it kept moving. I would reccommend it

Max from City Rovers was very warm and friendly as well knowledgeable of New York history. I am a New Yorker who wanted to further explore Central Park and I was not disappointed. I definitely recommend Central Park Rover as a tour in the Big Apple.
