A six star review. One of the best walking tours I have ever taken.

A friend and I chose this tour because it was the only one available for our schedule in New York. Did we ever hit the jackpot! Michael was a font of information (history, biography, plant life, and personal anecdotes plus plus. He was accommodating to everyone's needs, funny, candid, and polite. I recommend this tour for anyone and everyone. My rating is six stars!

Great stroll of the park

This was a great way to experience Central Park. Michael did an amazing job explaining everything to our group, learning a little bit about us, and sharing the amazing history of the park. In my point of view the best way to see the park is by foot. The group was small only 7 of us and the stroll through the park didn’t feel rushed or hurried it was just a great stroll with a knowledgeable guide. It also felt good to support a small business owner like Michael.

First time walking Central Park without being lost. Michael shared so many good details with us. It was a nice walk but be ready to walk for more than 2h. The weather was amazing so this helped. We loved the tour.

Hi Mike: We enjoyed the tour immensely . I visited Central Park many times, your tour was most enlightening. We especially liked your detailed info on Bethesda Terrace and the angel in the fountain.

We knew very little about Central Park despite being in NY repeatedly over the years so we booked this tour. Michael has an extensive knowledge about the park. He is easy going and presents the information in an easy to follow flow. Michael also has wealth of knowledge about various locations films and TV shows used in the park. He has a wealth of interesting and funny stories that brought them to memory and life. We learned so much about the park's history and present status that we now feel like we have a interest in the park and its future. We would highly recommend the tour to our friends.
