My wife and I took the Central park Horse carriage ride. We took a carriage from 59 st. . We really enjoyed the ride- but it was only 12 minutes long.
We felt we were ripped-off - could any experienced folks answer the following:
-We wanted one particular carriage, told that we must take the next in line, yet, the first in line seemed to be waiting on someone (no people in sight) and we were told to take the second in line? Can you reserve these and how do you do so?
-The entire ride was only 12 minutes. I know the sign said "1/2 hour or parts there of" but we expected a ride close to 30 minutes long. Is this normal?
-Dropped us off at 5th ave, when questioned why such a short trip and no return to the original start point, told me this was due to traffic. It was 10 AM.
-Paid him $40, he took the money like I was just giving him a $6 tip.
Any tips suggestions, we do plan to return one day.
