Hop in the pedicab a couple of blocks south of Central Park to begin this fun 1- or 2-hour tour. With views in every direction, don't forget your camera. The park, which opened in 1857, was designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. Despite its organic natural look, the park was completely designed anew and wasn't carved out of already existing nature.

Learn about the history of the park as your driver pedals through through this verdant landscape. See some of the most popular sites in the park, including Strawberry Hill, the Great Meadow, Sheep Meadow, Literary Walk and the legendary restaurant Tavern on the Green. You might recognize several parts of the park as it has been the setting for a plethora of famous films, including including the Naumberg Bandshell from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Wollman Rink from Serendipity.

Need to stretch your legs or stop to take a photo? No problem. Just alert the pedicab driver and hop out of the pedicab. Don't be surprised if you find people taking pictures of you, too, as you whiz by in your quirky little pedicab!

After exploring the park, you’ll return to your Midtown Manhattan departure point, just a block from the high-end shops of Fifth Avenue.

It was a warm day and many people were enjoying the park. Our guide was awesome and showed us many beautiful sites in the park. He even rode us back to the hotel with a stop at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

PEDICAB tour is the way to go for a stroll through Central Park. Reason for a low rating is that the PEDICAB arrived 30 minutes late and it was very difficult to understand the tour guide

Waste of money!

It was a very short ride through a part of Central Park, it was difficult to understand the driver and we already knew more facts about the park than he did. His facts were about places where movies were shot in the park and we could have cared less about that. We also felt that he did not drive us safely.

I searched all over for the driver walking back and forth between Central Park and the pick up location. I asked several other pedicab drivers how to find you and I never did. I’m very disappointed.

Honestly we enjoyed everything! Our tour guide Graziano was outstanding!! His knowledge was remarkable but it was his humor and genuine positive attitude that sealed the deal!! Soon after the tour started it poored down raining. We got zipped up in a plastic cover and had the most fun ever 😀
