Matt was an excellent guide. His knowledge of NYC and particularly Central Park was unbelievable. His outgoing personality added to the tour as he kept us entertained the entire tour.

A Very Interesting and Different Tour in Central Park
Nov 2019
We visited Central Park in early November, 2019, and registered for the tour based on a friend's recommendation. We were the only people on the Tour, so our guide, Kelsey, tailored the discussion and walk for us. In a word, Kelsey and the tour were FANTASTIC! She explained the history of the Park and showed us places the great majority of people never visit. There is so much more to Central Park than taking a stroll through the meadows and trees - politics, the effects of personal biases on the design, women's rights, and oh yeah, the history of this iconic landmark. Kelsey was a veritable encyclopedia of interesting and suprising stories and facts, and most importantly, fun to talk and walk with. The tour took about 2 1/2 hours, and was well worth the cost. A jacket was needed as we finished just about sundown. Again, highly recommended - we will never think about or visit Central Park the same way in the future.

Worth every bit of time and money
We enjoyed an afternoon walk in the park with Kelsey who is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the park, the island of Manhattan, architecture, and the people who shaped the city. We learned a lot and are glad we did it. You can tell there is a true passion for the history and not just script reading. Great job.

The guide was a no-show
We booked the trip through Trip Advisor and everything was fine. We waited at the location of the beginning of the tour at the time inducated on confirmation. The guide was nowhere to be seen. We called agency's number to find out what's going on but there was no one to be reached. Sent mail with complaint yesterday morning and to this time still no reply.
Terrible customer service. The worst I've ever experinced. Trip Advisor should take its role more seriously in assuring that such things do not happen.
From now on I will double check with agencies directly to confirm reservations.

You're right. This should not have happened. I'm the owner of Central Park Sunset Tours. We're a very small company but as you can see from our reviews, quality is of the utmost level of importance to us. Thursday morning, I had surgery. I thought everything was covered and I have not checked email for the past few days. I messed up. And I'm deeply sorry for that. I've processed your refund. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to be of service.

Sep 2019 • Couples
We ended up being the only ones on the tour and were able to cover a lot of ground, we went to places I hadn’t even heard of and got to hear about all of the changes that the park has gone through since it was first thought up. Thank you Matt for all of the new knowledge!

Sep 2019 • Couples
We had a great afternoon in Central Park with Matt he was super knowledgeable about the park and kept us on a nice pace. We saw places in the park I didn’t even know existed little hidden trails and he also had great stories and history about some of the bigger statues and monuments in the park. A great day and both really learned a lot he even gave us some great restaurant recommendations when we finish the tour .

Perfect blend of history and sightseeing
Aug 2019
On a recent trip to NYC to attend to US Open, we had the good fortune to spend a lovely summer evening walking Central Park with our tour guide Matt. He shared with us the fascinating history of the Park, the beautiful woodlands and gardens and iconic sites such as Bethesda Terrace, The Mall and Strawberry Fields. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys being outside (read brisk walking) and getting a history lesson with a good dose of New York culture.

Perfect Summer Evening
Aug 2019
It changed my relationship to the park I'd been visiting my whole life. Having heard the intricate background on the planning, politics and evolution of the grand scheme of the park in the context of the growth of the city during the era in which it was conceived and built, and the story of its reconstruction over the years, I will always feel more a part of its evolution.

Our guide Matt is steeped the history of New York City, particularly the parks. He answered our most picayune questions with authority and relish, and in a loud voice, for which I was grateful.

We had fun group of six, three of which were men, each with the name Steven, spelled just like that, and another man and I are Steven Marc, with a C. Almost uncanny. I couldn't have asked for more pleasant company.

I'll probably go often. It's a great way to learn history, experience the beauty of the nature and architecture and have a healthy walk.

Thanks Matt
