Max - the tour gude, was very friendly and professional. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. He was very knowledgeable and provided little insights that I didn't even know even though I lived here for 4 years. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour, like all of Max's tours, was informative, interesting, and absolutely enjoyable! He keeps the groups small (maximum of 10 or 12 people), and the pace easy. We stop for snacks and bathroom breaks too. I highly recommend this tour.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! Max is so knowledgeable and easy to listen to. I felt like I was on a treasure hunt and couldn't wait for the next story! Last year I did the Brooklyn Bridge tour with Max and it was also a great experience.

Great tour. It was easy and relaxed. Walking through the park with Max is like having a friend with you who stops periodically to tell you cool or interesting things about the park.

Great, Great. I learned so much about the Park and New York history as it relates to the creation of the Park. I could attend the tour over and over again. What a joyous learning event. Thanks Max.

I made the reservation for when my parents were visiting from Seattle. Thinking it would be something great for us to do together, thinking it was a very nice "tourist" idea. We went on the tour, and it was fantastic ! Not just for tourists, this...continued

Our guide was great. He seemed genuinely excited about the park and was helpful on and after the tour. A very small negative, I think it is a little more strenuous for the older tourists than the description described.

So glad we booked the Central Park tour with Max! I've been on a couple of different tours in different cities and have to say he is the best tour guide I have encountered yet. He is very personable and knows his city very well...and knows how to...continued
