Great tour, however long--3+ hours but worth it. Saw most of the entire park and although lived in NYC and go in frequently now, never knew of the many things shown us. Very knowledgeable tour guide in Max.

This tour was excellent! Max is smart, quick and keeps it interesting. This is not a dumbed down tour - it's lively, intelligent and engaging. Max really works hard to make sure you get the experience you want. The tour was a little over 3 hours...continued

This was the most fun and informative tour. Max is an excellent story teller and guide for City Rover. I'm a New Yorker and have been in Central Park many times, but Max knew tidbits, stories, and history that brought the Park to life!. I...continued

I really enjoyed this tour! A fun way to spend a Sunday and learn about this great NYC landmark. Max, the tour guide, has a very creative way of unveiling the park. He tells many interesting stories behind the creation of the park, its...continued

Max was a great and informative tour guide. We enjoyed the Central Park Tour so much that we went on his afternoon Village Sampler tour as well. He even gave us a wonderful suggestion for lunch so we could recharge between tours.

Great tour. You'd think giving this same tour over and over that Max would lose his enthusiasm, but it's quickly made clear that he loves what he does. The tour was great and uber-informative. I've been in Central Park dozens of times and learned...continued

highly recommend it, a great value for the money! i'm surprised how many attractions were hidden inside the park and the interesting stories behind them. They were relevant and personal, some funny others sad, but all memorable. It helped that...continued

Max was an awesome tour guide. Really made it interesting. I got some great shots in during the day. It was great going in October when the leaves are changing. Definitely recommend.

This 3 hour leisurely walk from the south of CP to the east and west, ending up at the obelisk behind the Met, was the most informative and pleasant walking tour we have taken in the city (and we try to take alot of them). Max the guide was very...continued

This was a delightful tour. Our group of 8 was enjoyable and inclusive. Max is a highly skilled NYC historian who points out many otherwise-hidden delights. The fun was not even slightly dampened by the 30 mins. of rain--watch the forecast & plan...continued

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.

Very interesting. Well researched, knowledgeable, well thoughtout. Presenter was sensitive to people's needs without being cloyingly sweet etc. Very enjoyable afternoon.

This is a tardy review because we've been on the road since the day of the walk. My husband and I, both seniors, have done many walking tours in different cities. This Central Park tour was, unequivocally, one of the very best! It wasn't our first...continued
