Very Good

This is a NYC must do experience! It was a really great way to see Central Park, whilst undertaking some light exercise! The tour guides were super friendly and very knowledgeable. My first tour was rescheduled due to the snow and Mike was very easy to communicate with and sorted it out for me in a way that fitted my schedule. Thanks for a great time!l

Excellent experience from start to finish! Great communication pre-booking (Mike) and pre-run (guide Meredith), everything on time and as described! Meredith was friendly and informative. Photos taken along the route by Mike and Meredith were an added bonus. A fantastic alternative to the more common walking and bike tours. No better place to get out for a morning run than Central Park! Highly recommended!
