Additional Tour Info
How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in nearly 3.5 hours. Assuming the benches in the Park are not wet, there will also be plenty of opportunities to sit down (while your guide tells you interesting stories). However, this tour does involve several short walks uphill and a few staircases to climb and descend. If you feel that this may be too strenuous for your age, level of fitness, or state of health, then please consider joining another CityRover tour or contacting us for a private tour. Generally, if you can walk up a flight of stairs without losing your breath, then this tour should present no challenges.
What About Kids? Our public tours may not be appropriate for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. Further, some of our tours reference adult content some parents may deem inappropriate for children. On this particular tour, references may be made to murder, crime, and drugs. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets available for each public tour for children aged 12 and under.
Meeting Point: Detailed meeting point instructions will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed. Please note that the tour usually ends either near the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the American Museum of Natural History (not at the starting point), so we recommend using public transportation to get to the meeting point (vs. driving and parking).
Stops: There will be at least 1 restroom break during our walk. Each participant will also be offered a complimentary bottle of water on the walk and a small snack along the way. A meal prior to the tour is recommended.
Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
