Great introduction to Central Park for first timer

It was an informative tour of the park. It would be even better if the geography of the tour could be enlarged to cover the northern part of the park as well.

We really enjoyed the tour and thought it was great fun!! Honestly, anyone should go for not only the movie references, but the history of the park and an outstanding tour! Don't go on a carriage ride, walk it and learn all about it!!

Good tour

Our guide (I forgot her name) was very nice and easy to talk too as well as knowledgeable and genuinely seemed to like doing these tours. The only issue was the time of day. If this tour happened in the morning (maybe 9 a.m.) it might be better especially in the summer, but that isn't our tour guides fault. IT was just warm and from 3-5 p.m. that is usually when the high temperatures for the day hit. But we had plenty of opportunities to get in the shade and also buy water (if you didn't bring any with you or ran out). She was able to point out a lot of places in Central Park that were part of the tour (movies sites) as well as some general history which is also interesting when you are on these types of tours. Just be sure you do know that it is a full 2 hour walking tour when you sign up. It is a good tour though and I would possibly do it again if the tour had more to offer for those that had taken it before (or just a history tour of Central Park even).

A fun way to see Central Park!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our trip through Central Park! We were able to see many cool movie sites from the silverscreen that have brought many smiles to our faces! Some of our favorites were scenes from the movies "Elf", "When Harry Met Sally..." , "Serendipity", and "Home Alone 2". There was about 2.5 miles of walking, which wasn't bad except for the temperature hitting 95 degrees! The tourguide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was courteous and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed it very much and viewed it as a very safe and fun way to see New York's famous Central Park! :) Annmarie Lodick Niagara Falls, NY

Our guide was great, very enthusiastic. But we would have liked it better had there not been so many home alone 2 references, and if there had been some more newer movies included in the tour.

Unenjoyable marathon run through Central Park

I was very displeased with the Central Park walking tour on Saturday, July 5 with Jessica. From the moment we all arrived in the group Jessica mentioned that because of the rain we would be moving at a faster pace and try to get done in less than 2 hours. Well in our party we had someone that was unable to keep up the pace. At the first "stop" we explained to Jessica that my mother had 2 replaced hips and was unable to walk at her pace and she simply told us to "keep up." When we were able to catch up and listen to the tidbits she had to say she spoke so quickly it was very difficult to understand her. She spoke English and I speak English but she did not enunciate and when questions were asked she quickly sped through and kept on going. My father attempted to keep up with the tour while I stayed behind with my mother and he even had a hard time keeping her pace and he is in shape and walks everyday. I feel that the tour guides' lack of compassion, rudeness and clear attitude with having to do her job was unacceptable. We paid good money for a TWO hour tour and ended up leaving the tour early and walking around Central Park on our own with no explanation of movies and TV Shows. I would NOT recommend this tour to anyone, instead walk around and then get a 40 minute ride on the Horse and Buggy as the driver tells you information along the way and keeps you entertained.

Wonderful Tour!

This was my first time in New York, so needless to say, I wanted to see as much as possible. My friend and I took the tour, and it was wonderful. Our tour guide was a native New Yorker, and very good at her job. We felt like we got to see alot of Central Park, and also got alot of history as well. It was a nice walk and very fun. I love movies and the Tour Guide didn't miss a beat!! I definately would recommend this to anyone visiting New York City for the first time.

This was a nice tour, it was 90 out the day we went so I imagine it would have been better in the fall. Tourguide really knew her stuff. A longer tour would also be nice. Overall would definitely recommend.

Must Rethink the Rain or Shine no refunds policy

My mother and I were in town for a wedding and had one free day to be tourists. The Central Park Movie Sites tour looked interesting and would give us a nice walk through central park. We were there on Friday May 9, rained the entire day and was VERY windy. Out of 24 people, we were the only ones to show up for the tour. They offered to put us on another tour (the next day) but due to our time constraints it was push on or get nothing for what we paid for our tickets. The tour guide was a sport and we got through about half the tour in less than half an hour. Central Park is beautiful and we had it all to ourselves that day...we were the only ones fool enough to be out in that weather. While it was nice having the park to ourselves, eventually the rain leaked through my dilapidated umbrella that the wind had bent and destroyed and I felt awful for subjecting my mother through the torturous walking tour 'rain or shine' so we called it off. The tour guide was nice enough to show us how to use the subway and make sure we made it to Macy's. I can say that had we been offered a refund...none of us would have been walking through central park in that cold, windy, rainy weather. My apologies to the tour guide...I feel like I tortured her as well..I do hope she didn't get sick.
