How do I begin!!!! It was truly beautiful. Our tour guide (Andy) was wonderful, professional and very attentive to our needs and comfort during our tour. He provided us with a blanket to keep us warm, as it was raining off and on. He pointed out the different locations where television and movie productions used the site as well as an historic overview of the park and the communities living around the park. We also saw a couple getting married in one of the gazebo over a small stream. At the end of the tour Andy allowed me to pet and feed his horse (Cynthia).

Although my husband has been to NYC many times, this was my first time in NYC. As exciting and adventurous as my trip to NYC was, one of my favorite things was going to Central Park. Not just going to the park, but going to the park on a horse drawn carriage and being able to see a good portion of the park while the guide narrated and outlined for us the history of the park and many things in it. It was one of the most thrilling and enjoyable activities I have ever been on. Lori our guide was fantastic, her carriage was clean and organized, and she was professional and friendly. We truly truly enjoyed our carriage ride and getting to know Lori and Milo... please pass this review on to her so she knows ... a must do in New York, if your love horse drawn carriage rides.. we will definitely be doing this again ....

Die Kutschfahrt war ein absolutes Highlight in New York. Die Tour dauerte knapp 50 Minuten mit Stopps für tolle Fotos. Unsere Fahrerin erzählte uns interessante Details und wusste zu fast jedem Ort einen passenden Film, der dort spielte. Den Startpunkt haben wir schnell gefunden. Etwa eine Stunde vor Beginn haben wir zudem einen Anruf mit der Handynummer und dem Namen unserer Fahrerin bekommen. Die Nummer brauchten wir gar nicht. Fragt beim Treffpunkt einfach einen Fahrer/ eine Fahrerin nach dem Namen. Sie helfen euch schnell weiter. Gut zu wissen: in 50 Minuten schafft man es nicht durch den ganzen Park. Bei der berühmten Bow Bridge waren wir nicht. Trotzdem ist die Tour sehr zu empfehlen.
