See Central Park in a timely fashion while on a vehicle of your choosing.  It makes experiencing the park that much easier so you can enjoy your ride and concentrate on the beauty and tranquility of the Park.   We will pick up our vehicles just outside the park and travel on most of the 6.5 miles of drives to see the park from bottom to top and back again!  We will stop at strategic points along the way and tell you the detailed story of how Central Park came about from a rocky and hilly pastoral land inhabited by squatters to a landscaped urban park and one of the great works of art of the 19th century.   See the statues of the Mall, the beautiful west side skyline from the Reservoir,  walk amongst the flora and fauna of the North Woods,  see the attractions at Mid-Park like the Greek-style amphitheater and a Victorian style castle.  Capture the scenic beauty of the signature landscaped Bethesda Terrace and Fountain and the famous angel statue.  All this and more on this wonderful jaunt through one of the most famous parks in the world.  

Tour includes option for different type of vehicle for a higher price.
