Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Chelsea Market to begin this exciting and information-packed 2-hour guided walk through the elevated park known as the High Line as well as Chelsea and the trendy Meatpacking District.
Expect to be wowed by the High Line. Once a functioning elevated railway line for cargo that went all the way down the west side of Manhattan, the railway fell into disuse and was abandoned in the 1970s. It sat there unused and unloved for decades until a group of locals, with a few celebrities tossed in for good measure, began a movement to turn it into a park. They succeeded. The first phase was completed in 2009. In September 2014, the final phase opened, completing a park that is enjoyed equally by tourists and locals.
Learn about all the public art in the park, as well as the new buildings by famous architects that can be seen from the High Line. Check out Chelsea, a hip neighborhood known for its art galleries, restaurants and bars. At the end of the High Line, explore the Meatpacking District, a neighborhood that was once, as the name suggests, home to the city’s meat industry. Today it’s a super-trendy neighborhood with a hot nightlife scene.
In 2 hours and just over a mile of walking, you’ll see an insider’s view of New York, leaving you ready to continue to explore these areas on your own.

  • Learned a great deal! Guide was informed and informative. Would definitely recommend!

  • Thoroughly delightful morning walk, great sites, interesting comments from our tour guide who did a great job. Fascinating little part of the city, definitely worth seeing.

  • We had a great tour with Maki! He was very informative and made the tour very interesting and fun. While you can walk the High Line on your own, this tour really brought the elements to life learning about the history. Glad we took this tour and would recommend!

  • We enjoyed this but felt that it was lacking something.. We enjoyed it but not sure I would recommend.

  • Eric our tour guide made this tour very fun and is very entertaining.

  • Our tour guide was Kevin. We had 5 people in the party. It was a very cold morning and I wasn't sure how this would go since I booked it first, then told everyone later. They all loved it! Even my husband who lived on Long Island for 30 plus years, enjoyed the tour tremendously. Kevin was very knowledgable, funny and patient. All of us recommend the trip and ask for Kevin.

  • Our tour guide, Evan, was funny, full of information and very entertaining. A lot of fun to be with and it was a great introduction to the High Line and all of the surrounding sights.

  • Our first tour of our break, so we were a little tired but it was a nice easy going introduction to the quieter side of manhattan. Coming from the countryside I very much take it for granted so maybe a little of the high line was lost on me. The tour also too in the interesting surrounding areas and many interesting places were pointed out that otherwise would have been simply walked past.

  • Cory was our tour guide - affable, well spoken and very knowledgeable - would do any tour with Cory again. Thanks Cory!

  • Great walk in the sky, highly recommended, was eveything I thought it would be.
