Jeremy did an awesome job! Just bring your walking shoes. He did a great job of bringing some history of the park and New York City together to truly appreciate what a wonder it really is.

A fun and comprehensive walking tour of this amazing park. I saw all of the landmarks that I wanted, and our guide answered every question we had. So glad I took the tour. Blown away by the history, size, and beauty in this park.

It was a perfect spring day to walk...

It was a perfect spring day to walk at central park and our guide was very knowledgeable. We were running a little late because of the March/Rally but our guide waited for us and was understanding of the situation.Thank you! I am happy with the various sites visited and the knowledge of the guide. I would suggest that to make the tour maybe just a little bit more longer. This is to allow more photo opportunity and maybe a sit in between the walk. Other than that, I did enjoy this walking tour.
