Great way to learns about Central Park and get a bit of exercise too!
We did the 9am bike tour with our guide Dan. The bikes were in great shape and Dan was a super guide. It ended up being just the 2 of us with Dan so we got to go at a great clip. We saw many parts of the park that we did not know existed despite walking through different area during many yearly visits. Central Park and the surrounding building have so much history to them! Dan was a wealth of knowledge and answered all our questions. 9am is great time to go!

Dan the man delivers! Try out an ebike too.
First, I think even if your out of shape/overweight a regular bike will do. Just a few short hills. Yet I have been wanting to try out an ebike and boy I’m glad I did. Super comfortable and I didn’t worry that I would be dragging the group down.
Lots to see in Central Park, but I appreciated other information about NY as well.
Dan even gave us time to take pictures and an all around joy. He offered to share information of restaurants and other areas of NY to explore.
You won’t be disappointed!

One of the most fun activities I have done in New York
We did the 2 hour tour of Central Park as a part of our pass options in New York. Chuck was our guide and we had a great bike ride through the park. We stopped at places I never would have known to stop. The history of the parks formation was great. Riding a bike is hands down the best way I have ever seen the park and Unlimited biking did a great job. This would be on my must do list of things to do in New York.

Fun and Knowledgeable experience in NYC!
Sep. 2021 • Couples
If you want a fun and exciting way of getting to know Centra Park, this is it! From the beginning of the check in process to the checkout, everything was so simple and quick! Our tour guide “Dan” was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He knew everything about the park and everything around it. (Bonus: He is a great photographer!) He took the time to answer questions about the best museums and eating spots to check out of the city. Do not feel shy to ask, Dan will answer any single question you have! Thank you Dan for making my first trip to NYC a great one! You reading should definitely book a tour with Unlimited Biking and DAN!!

Fun ride!
Dan was a great guide. He kept the tour informative and entertaining. Since this was my first bike tour, I was nervous about keeping up and hearing everything. Dan did a great job keeping us together and stopping at noted points. He also recommended a great lunch at the end.

Great Way to Experience Central Park!
Jul. 2021
My son and I had a great time on our Central Park bike tour with Dan yesterday! We were a group of 8 and he was very accommodating to everyone - even when there were challenges with some of the riders. Dan is a wealth of knowledge, engaging, and helpful. The ride was a fun and interesting way to see Central Park. I highly recommend this for individuals, couples, friends, families with tweens and teens, but it might be challenging for those with younger children.

All around, excellent company and excellent guide! Thanks, Dan!

Thank You Dan!
Had an amazing time with a special shout out to our tour guide Dan. We stopped and took photos at all the key points we requested, and he took us past every key spot we had on our list. Strawberry fields, the resivoir, Shakespeare garden, the castle, and more. Not only was the tour a great way to see the spots but we also learned a lot. Dan had knowledge of nearly every building, and every site in or around the park. He pointed out the celebrity hot spots and we even saw a few on our trip. After the tour he gave us great dining recommendations and offered to help any way he could to make our trip to NYC a great one. 5 stars all around, highly recommended.
