Our guide, Dan, was informative and very knowledgeable. Loved his enthusiasm and interest in our group. The park is a must see and riding through it on a bike is the perfect way! The bikes were in good condition and the route was easy on the legs -- minimal hills.

Isaac the guide was very good. I also liked the bike. I haven't ridden a bike in 10 years and it was light and the seat was comfortable. I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up,
Dan is the Man
Julie_C, Aug 2023
Dan made the bike trip fun. He is very funny and he takes lots of pictures of everyone while biking. He makes frequent stops while biking to talk about the area so if you're like me and have trouble going a little up hill you know he is stopping shortly thereafter to chat about the area. After I saw that was the pattern I felt better when I felt tired like how am I going to go on :).
Pleasant morning

Man, this tour was fantastic and our guide, Joel, is a really good dude. Learn a little. Laugh a little. Great service and equipment, too.
Great day in the park
Janet_A, Jun 2023
Dan was a great guide. He went out of his way to make sure he knew all our names and where we were from. He answered all our questions and made the day fun.
With passion for Central Park

Being a true New Yorker living the majority of his live in Manhattan John showed his passion and dedication to Central Park. He even spend more then the scheduled time to give us all opportunities to really discover the special spots of the park.
Great tour guide, company is eh
Jenny_G, May 2023
Issac our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and super nice. The reason for 4 stars is because the company charges a $1 pre authorization on your credit card at check in, but will not refund it when you return all the gear. It’s an unethical money grab.
Great morning in Central Park

Paul was amazing and we had a fantastic time on the tour! Great for all fitness levels and he gives plenty of time to ask questions and enjoy the ride!
Try to choose your guide!
Sandy_G, May 2023
The weather was the best part of the day! We had a brand new guide, which made the ride too slow and uninformative. We chose this company because of the reviews that said how great the guides were. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a great one.
Samantha was a great...
Veronica_A, Apr 2023
Samantha was a great guide, full of energy and knowledge to share. I went many times to Central Park but never saw some of the places she took us. And also knowing the history behind son spots is really interesting.
Great bike tour of Central Park!

Central Park History Junkie
Scott_U, Apr 2023
I liked the backstory behind billionaires row and learning about the history of how Central Park was created over the years. I especially liked that we got to stop and see the theater where Shakespeare performed and Belvedere castle
Fantastic Tour experience
Kevin_G, Nov 2022
This has to be THE way to see Central Park. Forget the horse drawn carriages, cycle with a friendly group and a brilliant guide. Dan is indeed the man. Brilliantly entertaining, funny and knowledgeable. Dan made the tour every bit as much as the park. Absolutely fantastic.
Senior riders stay away from this tour
Lpigott59, Oct 2022
Not a leisurely bike ride through Central Park nor is the company set up for any problems on the ride. First disappointing tour we’ve booked through Viatour. The bikes gears were not checked to see if they were set correctly nor was anything offered such as an e bike. We are 70+ years old and after the tour guide left us because she had a full group of people (I don’t blame her,unfair to the other riders). We had to walk our bikes back through Manhattan to get back to the bike shop. No refund, no nothing from the bike company. We’ve done bike trips before and this companies motto is take your money and anything that goes wrong not our problem!
Bike tour of your dreams ….. imagine
Ann_B, Oct 2022
Good experience for a tourist Only heard maybe half of what he said Saw a lot in the park. Glad I had Mike picking up the slack in the back, he answered a lot too
