A piece of Paradise
By Simone Verified Reviewer from Sao Paulo, BR on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Central Park Movie Tour by On Location Tours:

Central Park is a piece of paradise in the middle of the craziness of NYC. This tour was amazing not only by the fact that we were in the location of so many movies, but also because our awesome guide, Brienne, told us some very interesting historic facts about the park and the city. So even if you're not a great movies fan, the tour is worth.
