A treasure of a tour

Great tour, a comprehensive behind-the-scenes journey around Central Park. Interesting, informative, and fun. I loved all the stories and the history both of the park and the city. Not to be missed. A real highlight of my return to NYC after 25 years.

Great tour; poor hospitality

Central Park was beautiful that day. The tour itself was alright. Michael was talked really fast and when I asked questions, he kinda answered them in a snug way, and then continued. The tour, to some extent, felt kinda rushed. He told us at the beginning that the tour usually runs closer to 3 hours, which was a little rude to find out then. Why not officially make the tour 3 hours? Definitely leave plenty of time around this tour if you take it. I still recommend it because of all the information you learn.

Unique information I never knew

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Central Park. So many amazing things around the park that you would never notice just walking through. He walks at a brisk pace but allows for you to take plenty of pictures. Be prepared to get your steps in. I loved that he would take us near places where we could sit and hear him speak and loved that he incorporated bathroom breaks along the way. I would love to do it again.

Excellent tour guide. Mike knew his material and showed us the many statues and then talked about the history of Central Park. Geology and plant life were discussed. My wife and I enjoyed many of Mike’s stories about the famous people echo live near the Park.

Michael was an excellent guide. The tour was informative, enjoyable and well presented. I found the story of the expropriation of the Afro American village of Seneca especially interesting and appreciated the beauty of the park in general, in particular Bethesda Terrace.

Michael was knowledgeable and passionate about his love of the NYC treasure! He was an excellent speaker and stopped at all the right places for photo opportunities. The three restroom breaks suited our tour group of 12 perfectly. We would give him 24 thumbs up!!

Mr. Hunt is an excellent guide. He is friendly and welcoming. He is able to share details about the development and history of Central Park in a humorous, story-telling way that kept our attention. He has a relaxed style and a great sense of humor. The two hour walking tour through Central Park was one of our most memorable experiences n New York.

Although we have visited New York a few times, we never ventured far into Central Park - it seemed too big and a bit overwhelming. Walking through the park with a knowledgeable local was the perfect way to get to know it. Michael pointed out interesting design details that we would never have noticed on our own, and shared some of the park’s history. It was a wonderful way to spend a morning in New York.

Growing up across the street from Central Park as a kid I had so many fond memories. Our tour guide was able to show us things I have never seen before in Central Park or even paid attention to. I recommend the tour !!!!

This was a great tour! We learned a lot about the park’s beginnings, design, structures and original purpose. We learned about some of the plants, trees and birds that call the park home. The information was given in super interesting stories with political and historical context that gave it impact and made it relatable. Michael, our tour guide was knowledgeable, personable and funny-a great guide!!! We are looking forward to booking other tours with Michael on our next visit to NYC, and would highly recommend this tour to others! Thank you for such an enjoyable morning!!!
