Every time I have booked any tour through Viator, I am convinced they find the best in that specific city.

Dan was just tremendous! Trusted our ability to actually ride in NYC traffic after our two-hour ride through Central Park. He pointed out so many interesting sites and gave us time to walk around to inspect certain landmarks, such as Strawberry Fields marker. Highly recommend! I was no doubt the oldest in our group of 12, but I was never made to feel that they slowed down for me to keep up. Great pace, plenty of spots to rest in shade and drink water.

Extremely poor!!! We would not recommend this tour to anyone!!!! Look at other options!!! My partner had gear trouble with her bike and the tour guide rushed off leaving us with no idea where we were in the park after the first stop!! We eventually found our way back to the shop and they were not helpful at all.

A lot of fun and a great way to explore Central Park. We had beautiful weather. Our guide was funny and kept us entertained and all together. We walk but that's the extent of our every day physical activity, and it wasn't too difficult for us. One of my favorite tours, I highly recommend it.
