It was ok, wouldn’t do it again
charlene_b, Sept 2023
The horse looked old and tired, the guide was hard to understand as his accent was very thick, also he told some stories that were not true.
An unforgettable experience
Michael_A, Sept 2023
Our carriage driver, Vitali, was perfect. He communicated with us beforehand regarding his precise location which took much stress away. He gave us many insights into the places we passed during the ride and was very generous with letting us top to take photos. Included in that was willingness to take photos of the two of us so our memories are even better than the typical selfie (stressful appearance) photos. He was the absolute BEST!
Julie_S, Sept 2023
We had a fantastic time, Vitalii was our guide and Strawberry was our horse. We were kept informed by text regarding the meeting point. Vitalii took some photographs for us. Lovely afternoon.

Did someone else get our spot?
Carole_D, Sept 2023
Despite having a confirmed reservation in advance for late morning we were bumped to mid-afternoon, then told it was too hot for the horses, even though it was 78 degrees and cloudy. it was our last day in NYC so we missed our chance to see Central Park.

We enjoyed seeing all the sights of Central Park. The carriage ride was very comfortable and relaxing.
Gary_F, Sept 2023
We were booked for the Carriage Ride at 10:30 am on Monday 9-11-2023. They asked us to change to 1:55 pm that day. About 12:45 pm they canceled the trips for that day due to hot weather. Rescheduled for 10 am 9-13 2023. So we haven't had our ride yet.

Great experience
Paul_H, Sept 2023
Vitaly was superb..kept us interested in all around us..stop for pictures which are fantastic…would recommend this to anyone..only advice is the 20 or so companies that run the rides need to be better can spend 10-15 minutes trying to find the right guy arrive early.
AMAZING experience!!!
Joshua_D, Aug 2023
Thank You & we’re so happy we enjoyed this occasion!!! The driver & horse (Strawberry) took extremely good care of us!
Peaceful journey
BonnieJo_M, Aug 2023
Very good experience! Our driver communicated before and during the ride and shared all kinds of facts that we were not aware of. Beautiful horse and carriage!
Lake view
Camille_R, Aug 2023
The most enjoyable aspect was The photos at the lake. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable but his English was not clear. We were not able to stop at any of the points of interest, so that made the tour not as interesting.
Renae_R, Aug 2023
Iconic and enjoyable. Vitalli was able to give us ample photo opps!! Pointed out movie sites Beautiful night

On the sunny side
Gary_L, July 2023
Stay was delayed by an hour, but communication was good and weather great. Nice leisure ride through the park, with good information from Oscar relation mostly to notable film locations.
Best way to spend a Sunday morning in Central Park
JASON_M, July 2023
Great way to spend a Sunday morning riding around the south part of Central Park! Driver was very friendly, but had a little bit of a language barrier /however we made it work!
