The weather was beautiful which made being in the park extra nice. Saw all the locations I've only heard about or seen on tv. There was a wedding at the Boathouse even. I will definitely go back to Central Park with a good idea of what's where now and spend time enjoying it even more.

Had no idea

I have been to New York City several times over the past few years. I have ventured into Central Park only as far as the merry-go-round and Tavern on the Green. I was scared that I would get lost in the depths of the park and not be able to get out! So, I decided to take the Central Park Walking tour to ease my comfort level regarding the park. The tour was wonderful and the guide was knowledgeable and she spoke so that everyone could hear! I had absolutely no idea how large the park actually is, nor what was in the park. I was pleasantly surprised. The guide also added lots of extra NYC facts, facts about the park, etc. and not just "all about the movies". That is helpful for those who may or may not have seen any or all of the movies discussed on the tour. My only regret is that I did not make it back near the start of the tour to visit the gift shop and the checkers/chess location. My only negative comment is that the bathroom stop at the park (while necessary) was unpleasant as the bathrooms were not really clean, but certainly that is not the fault of the tour or the tour guide. Helpful hint: book early! Our tour was full. I have tried to get this tour on the "same day" as my visit, but was unsuccessful. I booked one month in advance for this trip.

Recommend tour for teenagers

I was visiting New York with my wife, my teenage son age 15 and my teenage daughter aged 13, we all enjoyed the tour particularly my 13 year old daughter who really related to some of the modern films ( Enchanted, 28 Dresses, Maid of Honour) and TV series (Gossip Girls, Ugly Betty etc.). It's a good way to keep teenagers interested in what to them would have otherwise been just a walk in the park. The guide was very knowledgeable not just on the movie stuff but on history too, she related to all age groups easily and keep the tour interesting from start to finish. We couldn't wait to see some of the films again just so we could say we'd been there!

My wife and I would totally recommend this tour; it was a great way to learn more about the park and fantastic in keeping teenagers entertained. If you like the movies this is the tour for you.

If you know Central Park a bit or are just seeing it for the first time, this tour hits a lot of the highlights and gives a colorful, fun spin on things. Our guide, Kimberly, was so contagiously enthusiastic about her job and the movie scenes she was describing that it would be hard to not enjoy. Wished there were even more stops along the way. Loved getting the inside scoop. FUN!

I thought the tour was wonderful. Exactly what I wanted. I came to Central Park, loved it, but did not want to miss where some of my favorite movies and scenes had been filmed. Tour guide, Jessica, was full of information and presented the tour so well. Saw the Mall, the boat house, the fountains and so many other walkways and beautiful spots which were beautiful in there own right but also special because you had seen them before in movies. I had my husband, who is not a movie fan and my 15 year old daughter, who both enjoyed the tour well. 2 hours, prefect length.

Great way to see Central Park

My 12 year old daughter and I went on the tour and we both really enjoyed it. I had been to Central Park on past visits to NYC but had never really learned much about the park.

I had seen some movies use a specific Central Park location and I was always curious to know where it was located in the park. Our guide, Jessica, told us that this location was The Mall and told us which movies and what scenes in the movie were filmed there.

This tour is great for movie buffs but it is also a fun way to see the park and to learn about it's history.

Jessica did an outstanding job.
