WOW is all I can say about our 1 Hour Central Park Pedicab Guided Tour with Ricky! Not only did Ricky provide us with historical videos of specific Central Park locations, but he shared so many facts about the park, it was amazing. And did I mention he is an excellent photographer?? I wasn't expecting the photos to be so amazing. Ask for Ricky, trust me, you will not regret! A few other details that made this tour worthwhile: The blanket, the stops, the knowledge, the weather and Ricky's charismatic personality.

This tour deserves more than 5 stars. We did the 2hrs tour. Our guide John was so much fun, informative and took great photos. I had seen parts of the park through the years but to see it all and the hidden gems was awesome. If you are on the fence, Just do it.

Communication was great before our booked 2 hour park tour. Our guide Ricky turned up promptly in a lovely clean new rickshaw unlike many of the others. Ricky was the perfect host giving a warm welcome and making us feel very relaxed. His knowledge of the park and its history is encyclopaedic and always had a perfectly timed movie clip or piece of music to bring it all to life. Very professional but kept it all great fun without ever appearing to just be going through the motions. The park has lots of bits to see you might struggle to find yourself and though it’s not cheap it was an enjoyable trip for us all and I would recommend. There are probably other good guides but I would ask for Ricky.

10/10 would recommend! Ask for Ricky! He brought us a blanket and even let us stop for coffee to begin. He pointed out really great spots and took great photos of us!

We chose the 2 hour tour and loved every minute. We were fortunate to have a beautiful Autumn day for our ride. The three of us ladies fit comfortably in the cab, and our guide provided us with a warm, soft blanket which we welcomed. Our guide, Ricky, was the best! We enjoyed conversing with him, appreciated his knowledge of the park and how he accommodated our every need. Ricky was delightful, took photographs and provided us a fun and informative Sunday afternoon in Central Park.

A true trip highlight with Omar being one of the best tour guides I’ve had. On booking I honestly thought I was paying for someone to drive us around the park for an hour. It wasn’t something I saw as a great value since seeing the park can be done for free on your own two feet. However; I was so wrong. This ended up being the best return on investment I felt like I had across the whole trip to NYC. My sister and I were encouraged to get out and explore each of the park highlights we visited. Omar got out with us at each, volunteering to take a few photos then letting us have our privacy to explore/ see the site. He truly cared about helping us get great shots and even offered some fun pose ideas along the way. However; the highlight was Omar’s personality! He was welcoming, funny, and informative. The tour was peppered with jokes, history, and modern day facts about the park and the surrounding area. We especially enjoyed how much he taught us about the section of the park dedicated to John Lennon. Using a pedicab service allowed us to cover much more of the park than we could have ever done on foot. Partially because of timing, partially because our feet were exhausted as this was the last day of our trip. Combining that with the personalization our guided brought, this experience was hands down worth every dollar spent. A must do for any first time visitors to NYC!
