Central Park guided tour.

Central Park tours are famous across the US and around the world. That is because the park is home to many famous attractions, such as Belvedere Castle, Gapstow Bridge, Wollman Rink, Strawberry Fields, and Bethesda Fountain.

If you are interested, we are ready to give you an exciting 2.5-hour tour of Central Park. Our tour is private and will include:

Gapstow Bridge

Our Central Park tours start at the Gapstow Bridge, where you get to explore the southeast section of Central Park. This is one of the most photographed sections of the park. During the tour, you will get to see natural scenery as well as killer views of the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Zoo

We will then head over to the Central Park Zoo. The zoo is a small natural habitat with a surprisingly high number of plants and animals from various parts of the world. This rare attraction is ideal for families with small children because there are many things to do, including visiting the recently installed 4D cinema experience.

Belvedere Castle

Once we are done with the zoo, our next stop will be Belvedere Castle. Here, you will stand on a balcony and enjoy panoramic views of the entire park. Some of the things that you will see include the Great Lawn and the Ramble.

There are also many things to see within the castle. Visitors have the opportunity to examine the skeletons of birds and animals. We can also take you to where there are telescopes and microscopes for studying this natural environment. Therefore, our visit to Belvedere Castle is ideal for anybody who wants to have a scientific tour of the park.

Wollman Rink

Kate Wollman built the Wollman Rink in 1949 when she donated $600,000 to construct a rink in Central Park. Donald Trump bought the rink in the 1990s, and his organization continues to manage it to this day. This is where we will take you as part of our walking tour of Central Park. You will join other skaters as they glide on the ice.

One major advantage of this rink is that it's open throughout the year, including in summer. While you are skating, you will discover wonderful views of the Rockefeller Centre. If we do the tour at night, you will see the stars as you listen to calming winter music.

Strawberry Fields

John Lennon was a peace activist who is immortalized in Strawberry Fields. This particular attraction in Central Park is part of our walking tour. Once we arrive at Strawberry Fields, you will have the opportunity of seeing a large mosaic with the word "imagine" inscribed on it. This memorial is located in the midst of a tranquil place that has benches and attractive trees.

Strawberry Fields was first opened to the public in 1985. Architect Bruce Kelly designed the conservancy after consulting Lennon's wife. Officially, this is a gift from the Italian city of Naples.

Bethesda Fountain

We may end the walking tour at the Bethesda Fountain near Bethesda Terrace. This is one of the most prominent fountains in the park and New York City. Moreover, the fountain is one of the few attractions within Central Park that was part of the park's original design. The fountain has a sculpture of an angel and four cherubim.
