Take a Privately Escorted Tour Through the World's Most Famous Park!


Come along as I bring you through the world's most famous park. Created in the mid 19th Century as an "Urban Oasis" in the middle of what was already the nation's largest city, Central Park is still one of the city's most visited attractions and called "the most photographed place in the world".
I'll bring you on a walk past famous sights on the park's fringes, such as Columbus Cirle, "The Ghostbusters Building" and The Dakota Apartments (John Lennon's home) as well as those in the park, including but not limited to Strawberry Fields, The Imagine Mosaic, Belvedere Castle, The Ramble, Bethesda Fountain, The Mall and much, much more.
A Central Park institution is "Joey" who draws really bad portraits. He'll date and sign it "Strawberry Fields, NYC". It's crazy, but it's fun and so NYC! When you book my tour, as long as Joey is there (which is almost all the time) I'll get you a really bad portrait on ME! .
No visit to New York is complete without seeing Central Park, book your tour now!

What’s Included

Other: The services of a devoted private tour guide who not only loves NYC but loves sharing this great city's treasures with her visitors. None of the marvelous and awe-inspiring sites you'll see on this tour charge admission. My price is all inclusive for your entire group. For your convenience I also had a hotspot installed on my mobile device so my tours come with free Wi-Fi too!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 USD - All the attractions we'll visit are free so you'll just need "walking around" cash for souvenirs, snacks or drinks.

What’s Extra

Other: Public transportation and any items or purchases of a personal nature. Please note we will visit the 9/11 Memorial, which is free and open to the public. This tour does not include the 9/11 Museum, which is private and requires separate admission.

A Recent Review of this tour

Despite the cold, this was one of my favorite activities of the week. First of all, I love the peace of mind that comes with a guide meeting you and returning you to the front steps of your hotel. Secondly, even though this was a Central Park tour, Brian began giving us information about other points of interests and even the subway before arriving at our Central Park destination. He obviously knows NY and enjoys sharing it. He was very accommodating and interesting. Highly recommended.
