A Family Company Bringing a New York City Tradition to Life
Central Park is one of the most beautiful and popular city parks in the world. It has many historical landmarks, and famous scenes from countless movies were shot in many parts of the park. As such, a horse carriage ride is an ideal way to explore the park for two reasons. The first is the size of the park. A horse carriage ride is the perfect way to see it without walking for days. The second reason is the need for a guide to learn about the park and know the significance of the tourist spots, statues, and natural landmarks. All our drivers are licensed local guides who provide commentary throughout the ride. Enjoy the tranquility of the park on a horse-drawn carriage while your driver informs you about many historical landmarks and parts of the city surrounding the park.
We strongly suggest that you book your ride online since there are usually long lines of people waiting for a carriage, especially on holidays and weekends! When you book online, we arrange one of our carriages for you at a specific time. You simply meet your driver at the corner of 59th Street and 6th Avenue (Across Park Lane Hotel) in front of the José Julián Martí Statue inside the park and go from there. Our drivers are all professional, and they really love and care about their horses. Some of them have been working as horse carriage drivers for over 30 years!
The NYC Adventures family brings people together from around the U.S. and the world with our experienced drivers and world-class tours. The result is always a pleasant experience. Please let us know if you have any questions. We are more than happy to answer. To see more pictures of our carriage ride tours, please visit our image gallery
Our carriages carry a flag with our logo. When you arrive at your meeting location, you simply look for carriages with our flag. Or just ask any carriage driver there for NYC Adventures.
The carriages are only allowed to drive in the city after 10:30 p.m. for six days a week and after 9:30 p.m. on Sundays. There are many other regulations in place by NYC authorities. For example, horses are not allowed to work below and above certain temperatures. When the weather hits those limits, we simply stop working.
