Rude guide

The guide was very rude- first he changed our set time for the tour and then he was not clear with the instructions to meet- He didn’t t even bother to give us a good description of the park- Don t go
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Were you not rude when you insisted to call us to your feet to 3 blocks away to the wrong spot? Address is very clear. 99 percent of the people are finding without any problem. You are in the 1 percent Helena!

Not wheelchair accessible
Barbara_G
, Aug 2022
The drivers were great but, the reason I picked this company was because it said wheelchair accessible, it’s not. I have bad legs and can’t get up stairs easily. I really struggled to get up into coach. I got up first step, then laid on the floor to get up on my painful knees to work myself up to seat. If I was with other people, I would had sent them off without me. But it was just me and my granddaughter, and I didn’t want her to miss this memory. So if you need easy on accessible, this is not it. I should have double and triple checked the information. But the drivers were very kind and tankful, I enjoyed the actual ride

Barbara You called and asked before you came. I explained you we take wheel chair separately, you need to be able to get in the carriage. You said you will try and you did it. Thank you

I was disappointed with the carriage ride. They arrived late and they finish d early. Not what I expected. I also paid a lot extra for this service. I would not recommend.

You didn’t want to get off the carriage and use your photo stops. We also told you that your will be shorter. You said its fine. Please read the instructions before you go to activities

Nice Carriage Ride In Central Park
joe_d
, Aug 2022
Tour guide was pretty good. Carriage was beautiful and well maintained. Pretty good experience overall. Just wasn't happy that we got started 10-15 minutes late and they did not add that time on the back end of the tour. If you pay for an hour you should get the full hour, since they charge by the length of the tour.

If you booked extended ride you have 3 picture stops IF YOU DONT USE THEM YOUR RIDE WILL BE SHORTER read the instructions please

It was an okay ride. The driver was great, but we didn't stop at a few of the spots. I pictured being VIP differently, I guess. Help in and out of the carriage would have been a plus, but that's fine. Recommend only if you just want "a ride".
