Experience Central Park at its most beautiful time of day on this three-hour sunset walking tour, a favorite with both native New Yorkers and visitors. Led by a licensed tour guide doling out plenty of charm and information along the way, you'll get an overview of the park's most iconic spots bathed in the warm glow of the day's waning rays of light. You'll learn the history of the park and its significance to the city, discover great places to go on dates or to hang out, and see locations you'll recognize instantly from your favorite movies. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, because you'll cover about two-and-a-half miles. It's a leisurely pace, though, since you'll stop to look and learn at about 27 spots, including Shakespeare Garden, Bethesda Fountain, the carousel, Tavern on the Green Restaurant, Bow Bridge, Heckscher Ballfield, the Strawberry Fields John Lennon memorial and the elm-lined mallway promenade.
Children are allowed on the tour, but parents will be responsible for ensuring that their child is well behaved. Crying, whining, rough-housing and rowdiness will not be permitted. The tours have a relaxing — and for some, romantic — quality, and if the guide feels that this is being disrupted, they may ask you to leave the group. A refund will not be issued.
