About Central Park Sightseeing
Central Park Sightseeing matches riders with the proper transport or tour for exploring the 843 acres and 47 miles of scenic pathways that make Central Park famous. Park explorers can select from more than 150 new basket-equipped bikes for men, women, and children in a bevy of styles, such as hybrids for comfortable cruises, mountain bikes for tackling the park’s hills, and tandems that seat two riders or one cardio-savvy centaur. Tour guides piloting pedicabs convey visitors around the park while bestowing pearls of wisdom concerning the area’s history, including which famous movie scenes were filmed in the park and where. Some of Central Park’s more popular attractions, horse carriages take passengers on a relaxed trip through the trees and streets. For visitors who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, Central Park Sightseeing also offers walking tours led by guides that are well-versed in pop culture, park history, and the process in which baby squirrels hatch from their eggs.
