Central Park Pedicab Tours
This is the most popular Central Park Pedicab tour. Over the course of an hour, you will see roughly 1/3 of Central Park. This is enough time for the 150 year story of Central Park to be told. Our Pedicab visits spots used in movies from Elf to When Harry Met Sally to 27 Dresses and view numerous celebrity homes – from the outside of course. You will see everything from the Intro Tour and the majority of Central Park’s most spectacular and famous spots including:
1 Hour, 5 minutes
$125 per pedicab (up to 3 people)
Central Park Pedicab Tours enters the Southern End of Central Park and moves past the Carousel and Wollman Rink and pauses at The Mall. We pass the statue of Balto, the spot where The Good Morning America Friday Summer Concerts are filmed, and the Boat Pond where Stuart Little steered his model sailboat to victory. Central Park Pedicab Tours then stops at Bethesda Terrace to see the Angel of the Waters and numerous unique and elaborate carvings in the Nova Scotia Sandstone that the Terrace is carved from. We then do a short walk along the edge of the lake to Cherry Hill, passing through the Ramble and past the Bow Bridge.
Our next stop is Strawberry Fields where visitors usually walk up the hill through the memorial to see the Imagine Mosaic. Your driver for Central Park Pedicab Tours will be waiting for you at the top of the hill to show you the Dakota, where John Lennon lived and died. On our way south we pass Tavern on the Green, Sheep Meadow, and the spot where the New York City Marathon finishes. We generally exit the Park at Central Park South and 7th Avenue but we can go elsewhere.

What are some of your most memorable tour and foraging experiences in Central Park?
Getting arrested. Meeting my wife on a tour. Not being able to lead a large group out of the park during an unpredicted torrential rainstorm when too much water was running down my glasses for me to see. Finding 60 lbs. of gourmet wine-cap stropharia mushrooms. Finding a chokecherry tree for the first time south of the Adirondacks in the Northern Woods just this year.
