We loved this tour! We were a party of four, and to be honest, the other three were vary wary of the outing. In the end, though, every one of us loved it! Max did a great job, and we will surely go with him on another of his tours!

Loved the tour of Central Park. I go often with my dogs and friends but after the tour I see familiar places with new eyes and discovered new corners I had never been to. Max was brilliant, entertaining and the three and a half hours breezed by.

Max has an abundance of knowledge delivered with such enthusiasm!!!!! I learned so much about a park I played in as a child and walked through as an adult. So worth the tour, I would do it again in a second!!

Max was very interesting! The walking tour went at a nice meandering pace. Even the locals on the tour saw some things they didn't know existed.
