    What to Expect
    Meet your guide just a few blocks from Central Park, and then it’s time for a stroll through the cultural history of this New York City icon. Learn about and fall in love with this New York City landmark, exploring the many bridges, fountains, and sculptures throughout the park while learning about its history and design from an experienced guide.
    Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, with almost 40 million visitors each year. It’s also one of the most filmed locations in the world. In fact, over 300 movies have scenes within the park, from 'Romeo and Juliet' in 1908 to 'The Avengers' in 2011 and beyond. Some of the cinematic highlights on this walking tour include the Boathouse Café from 'Sex and the City' and 'When Harry Met Sally,' the Bandshell in 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' and 'Kramer vs. Kramer,' the pond from 'Home Alone 2,' Tavern on the Green from 'Wall Street' and 'Ghostbusters,' the Conservatory from 'Stuart Little' and many more.
    There are plenty of rest stops along the way where the guide talks about the many interesting details of this National Historic Landmark park. The tour is rated as an easy stroll, with no significant hills to climb. And with no more than 25 people on the tour, it makes for an ideal, personalized experience.

    Potentially, this could be a good tour, but we found it disappointing. The guide verbally delivered the tour so quickly, it was difficult to pick up what was being said and consequently some of the anecdotes were lost. Also due to the pace a couple...More

    You would have to contact them. We had a group of 12 people on our tour (ours was a party of 4). Not sure they would change or not.
