How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in about 3 hours. The terrain is mostly flat, though there are a couple of small hills and some steps. You’ll be on your feet most of the time, but one of the advantages of a private tour is that the pace and distance covered can be tailored to your group’s needs (as well as local snack/refreshment stops).
What About Kids? Another benefit of a private tour, if you’re traveling with kids, is that we can personalize it to keep both adults and kids engaged, informed, and entertained.
Meeting Point: The tour typically starts on Fifth Avenue and Central Park South and ends near Strawberry Fields. However, we can pick you up from your hotel, if you’d prefer that option, and end the tour at a place that’s most convenient for you.
Weather: Our tours take place rain or shine, barring a severe storm in the forecast, in which case we would email or call you and offer options to reschedule. If severe weather prevents us from leading this tour and you/we are unable to reschedule, then we would issue you a refund for the tour in question.
Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated, though certainly not required or expected.
