I have lived around New York City for 35 years and still found this tour fascinating. I saw parts of Central Prak I had never seen and learned so many cool facts. Max's enthusiasm is wonderful. Highly recommended.

Our tour guide Max told us about some facts about the park of which many people are not aware and pointed out items that most people don't notice. It was a fun 3 hours! We also witnessed a marriage proposal!

The guide, Max is just an all around awesome person. Super knowledgable and has kick butt story telling skills. . . .'cause lets face it, that is what a tour of anything is. . . .an old story being retold. :)

This tour is well worth it. The number of participants is limited to twelve which is wonderful. It allows everyone to hear everything and no one to get lost. This is something that we always are wary of when booking a tour. An extensive area...continued
