Even on a rainy day the tour was well worth battling the rain. The guide was very informative with a few suprises. Highly recomend the tour.

thought the tour was informative and well led. had a little trouble finding the beginning of the tour because the subway entrance was not marked very well. better initial gathering place on a corner.

Great experience and value.

I really enjoyed the tour. It was an excellent introduction to the Park which is complicated and easy to get lost in. I carried a compass but was still a little confused and just followed the herd. There were a few surprises on the way as the park is always being used by the media!

Except for the heat, we loved it!

This is a great way to see Central Park. The park is huge, so it helped having a guide who knew her way around. Being movie fans, we had seen almost every film discussed. It was so much fun putting the film with the location. Not sure non-movie fans would love it, but we definitely did! Only drawback--it was 95 degrees!! The guide did a good job of keeping us in the shade when possible, but at the end of the two hours, we were all ready to get into air conditioning and find something cold to drink. Would recommend it to anyone to loves movies and/or beautiful parks.

We had a very enjoyable time. There were others in the group, however, who found the walking to be too much.

Kim was totally accommodating! She makes you feel like you are her good friend with a on of trivia and information to share. Felt like we saw and learned everything we could wrap our arms around. Kim was so good I would take the tour again. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her! Thanks so much!

Wonderful way to get to know Central Park!

We are from the West Coast and were visiting New York City. We always find that using a tour company is the best way to get to know any city that we are visiting. This was one of our best tours in New York. Our group was a managable size (about 20 individuals) and our tour guide (Jessica) was delightfully engaging and informative. The walking tour was beautiful. The length of time, distance, rest stops AND the weather were PERFECT! What a wonderful way to get to know the Big Apple! Thank you

A little slower, please!

This was a good tour, even though it was a rainy day. Our guide was pleasant and very knowledgeable and we learned not only about movie sites but interesting facts about Central Park itself. The pacing of the tour could have been a bit slower to accomodate all group members. I was with friends in their 60's, very active hikers, but our tour guide was moving faster than was comfortable for us. There was also very little time to take pictures and keep up. She was about 15 minutes ahead of schedule on a two hour tour. She also said that two breaks were planned, but when we got there asked the group whether or not they wanted to stop. Some did, some didn't and it was a bit awkward for the group. She should have simply made the decision. We took three tours this trip (all through Zerve) and while I would recommend it, I would do so with some hesitation. I had no such hesitation about the other two.

A beautiful, interesting tour

It was a gorgeous day in New York; therefore we found it a perfect time for a walk in Central Park. Our guide was a very knowledgeable young woman who really knew the movie sites and discussed each one intelligently and with humor. That said, the five of us agreed, however, that the presentation would have been better received if she had waited until everyone arrived at the site before beginning to inform us about the movie or TV show that was filmed at that particular location. We felt somewhat rushed in that she was trying to fit everything into certain time limits. Those of us who were in the back of the group discovered that our guide was almost finished with her descriptive comments by the time we arrived. Also, perhaps a megaphone would help her project her voice so that everyone could hear.
