New York City's Central Park, a National Historic Landmark, draws upwards of 30 million visitors a year. But those being led by Central Park Walking Tours' guides gain a deeper understanding of the park's many paths, castles, ponds, and gardens. Guides are not only knowledgeable of the park's history and wildlife, but multi-lingual as well—they speak German, Spanish, Italian, French, and Taxi. So during their tours, they turn this sprawling maze of nature and monuments into a digestible narrative full of history and insight. They wax poetic on the park's history and it's wildlife, and introduce guests to some less-known spots. And despite the name, Central Park Walking Tours offers multiple means of exploring the park: by foot, pedicab, bike, and horse and carriage. During tours, guests can expect to see landmarks such as the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, The Central Park Zoo, and take in the many anonymous though no-less scenic spots tucked between the trees and weaving paths.
