Boy did CityRover ever do that for us and then some! We took the Central Park tour with Rodney and the Village Sampler with Danielle and we were wowed on both tours. Their knowledge, ability to effectively communicate, and passion was incredible!
We always do small private tours as we travel internationally and domestically and these two guides rank right up there with the best of the best.
Each tour was paced to the group size and adapted to the interest level with the stories told and information given. Not only were Rodney and Danielle skilled at their craft but they we truly nice caring individuals.
I cannot speak about other tour operators but in my opinion if you tour with anyone else you are making a mistake- CityRover Walks NY is the only one I'll use!

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 are not ideal for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. If you would like to tour with us and have children ages 10 and younger, please contact us about a private tour. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets ($25 each) available for each public tour for children ages 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.
