A great way to start off your trip!

This tour was very informative and both interesting and fun! We went on it towards the end of our vacation, however, I would recommend that this be one of the first things you do, since it provides a great foundation for walking around central park. The tour guide gave us a small amount of background info on central park and then showed us many movie sights and then some other well-known sights of central park (ie. John Lennon memorial, celebrity homes). There were also lots of points to stop, so don't be fearful of the walking!

I really enjoyed the tour, especially because as a local who is not too familiar with the park, I was able to see places, like the "mall" for example, which I have not seen before. The historic information was very well tied into each site, and the movie locations were perfect because they incorporated many different movies and actors. It was interesting to see which buildings certain celebrities live in, like Jerry Seinfeld and Madonna, and I think the tour duration was perfect. My group had a great time, especially because it was a beautiful day out, and the tour went quickly--it did not drag on or anything. Our tour guide was very pleasant, and did a wonderful job in explaining everything to us, and handling the large group. I recommend this tour to anyone, and am interested in the agency for the future. Thank you!

This park can be almost too big to see everything there is to see--especially if you have never been to Central Park before. This informative tour was able to highlight interesting and famous spots in an organized fashion. However, it was still able to maintain a very leisurely feel--although it is probably hard to ever not feel leisurely in this park. It's gorgeous! Our guide was also enthusiastic and extremely nice. She encouraged discussion and questions, so that I felt like a very interactive member of the group. If you're a tourist--whether a family or on your own--this is a good use of your time!

Beautiful

Touring Central Park was better than great, and it was much more beautiful than I had imagined. The factual TV and movie location information was very interesting. Our tour guide was wonderful and respectful of participants' desire to spend time to really take in the sites. The landmarks seen during this tour are perfect backdrops for shooting great New York City photos. Overall, a great experience and one that I will never forget. I will definitely register for another one of the On Location tours the next that I decide to visit NYC.

good, but not as good as expected

I took my friend on the tour while she was here visiting. The tour guide was great and you get to see alot of the park. Alot of the movies mentioned were either really old or obscure. It's a fun way to see the park but, don't expect to recognize alot of it from movies you have actually seen.

Very enthusiastic tour guide

Our tour guide was Kimberly. She was full of energy and very easy to talk to. She offered to take pictures during the tour which was really nice we did not have to stop other people and ask them to take our pictures. Even though not very important to us, her knowledge of the movie locations was also very extensive. We took the tour in order to see Cenral Park, and Kimberly did a very good job of guiding us through the park, and along the way telling us all the movie trivia associated with Central Park. We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour tour.

Wonderful Experience

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable of all movies filmed in Central Park. We had a wonderful time and were able to see many parts of the park that we may have missed if we had gone on our own! I would VERY STRONGLY reccommend it to anyone who wants to have a good time and who has a love for movies!

Tour Falls Short of Movie Tour Title
Fri, Jul 15, 05   3:00 PM leastarr Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The Central Park Movie Tour was interesting, but was rather slow paced and did not seem to contain that much movie information. The history of the park is always fascinating to hear, as is the TV history, but I was disappointed that there were only a few movies actually talked about on the tour. Since the tour has to acommodate a large group of people of many different ages, the tour seemed rather slow paced and seemed to drag in parts.
