This hands down, was the most wonderful thing I could’ve done for me and my family. Our guide was knowledgeable,, funny and truly seemed to enjoy this tour himself. We would have been lost and without any historical direction on our own. Highly recommend this park tour.

It was a rainy, damp day when we met Mr. Wilcox for our walking tour, but it turned out to be a superb few hours of enjoying the phenom that is Central Park in NYC! Although we were in the Park many times, we had no idea of the incredible sights we would see and the knowledge that was shared with us by our guide. We cannot wait to do this again and explore another part of the Park with him!!! This is a definite opportunity you don’t want to miss in NYC!

Awesome tour of Central Park. Jeremy was super knowledgeable and I’m certain after the tour that if I hadn’t taken the tour, I would have just wandered around Central Park with no appreciation for the meaning and thought behind each part. Absolutely loved it!
