Excellent local activity

The clear advantage of this type of tour is having a local NY Person who is also involved with or has had experience in the industry ,and is thus very aware of the nuances and style required, and the type of person attending this tour and their interests in the world of film and TV.

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.

We loved the tour! It was my Mom's first trip to NYC, and I knew she'd love the park, but I also know we'd be overwhelmed to tackle it ourselves.... the trou was great to orient ourselves with the park, and the city too! The movie tidbits make it a little more relatable and familiar, and we were comfortable with the park for the rest of our trip.

The tour guide knew her stuff, and was very helpful and friendly too!

Keep it up...

A good way to be shown around central park. Lots of helpful information and friendly guide. Shows you where lots of movies are filmed - take pictures or film or come back and spend more time at those locations. Central Park is the best place in the world and the most filmed

My mother and I truly enjoyed the tour. We learned so much about Central Park's history and its surrounding streets. We saw where all sorts of movies were filmed, and where stars currently reside in NYC. The tour guide was professional, friendly and a wealth of information. I highly recommend this tour to those wanting to enjoy a beautiful day in the park with family and friends.

Jessica was a super tour guide. It was even better than I expected. My whole group enjoyed the tour. We recommended it for next time to everyone on our bus 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.

Nice guide, but it was raining cats and dogs, so there was no fun any more.

Could have been better

We enjoyed the tour but have some suggestions to make it even better. First, the group was WAY TOO BIG (34)! We also had a lot of trouble hearing the guide. Finally, we felt the tour could have included a few more locations, for example, Belvedere Castle. It wasn't that far from some of the other sites we visited, but we had to back track after the tour finished to find it on our own.
