Know More about this tour

Make your way to The high line to begin this exciting 3.5-hour guided walking tour of the elevated park and the famous Greenwich village. Expect to be wowed by the High line. Once an elevated railway line for cargo that went all the way down the west side of Manhattan, it fell into disuse and was eventually 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.

As youll see during your walk, they succeeded. The first of three phases was completed in 2009. In September 2014, the third and final phase opened, completing a park that is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long and 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. Once youve reached the end, at the Meatpacking District, descend the stairs and meet Greenwich village, one of New Yorks most historic and eye-pleasing neighborhoods. When New york city developed the grid street plan for Manhattan in the early 19th century, Greenwich village already existed, which is why the neighborhood is a charming tangle of curving, confusing streets.

Explore the Village in a delicious way, through its food. Eat a slice of real Big Apple pizza and get clued in on where to find some of the best Italian specialties and chocolate confections in the city youll make up to six stops and sample enough food to make a full lunch of it. But a neighborhood is more than just its food. Find out from the guide what famous people have lived in the neighborhood, and what famous people still do. Learn about the best underground jazz clubs and cool independent bookstores. The tour concludes in Greenwich village, leaving you free to continue to explore this vibrant neighborhood.

    We had an awesome time walking the High Line and receiving information along the way. To top it off, we sampled local cuisine which ended up being our dinner.

    We had a great tour of the High Line and Greenwich Village with Nancy, our tour guide. She was very knowledge, friendly and professional. The architectural details along the High Line were fascinating and the food tour in Greenwich Village delicious. I plan to do the Central Park/Hell’s Kitchen tour next trip, hopefully with Nancy!

    Our tour guide, Nancy, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She did a very good job with adjusting the High Line Park tour to a street walking tour since the High Line was closed due to high winds that day. We were introduced to a number of unique local foods during the food tour portion, but almost too much in a 2-hour tour. By the end, we were stuffed and couldn't fully enjoy the last places that we visited. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about that part of the City.

    Great guide; former NY policeman. Good historical perspective; fascinating buildings, plants, etc.
    I believe he also used to teach history.

    The tour was fun and interesting, and the food was great! French pastries, chocolates, Bleeker Street Pizza, Bantam bagels, Rocco's cappuccino and cannoli, and Italian subs – wow! Each food selection was the best of NYC. Our tour guide Annabel was absolutely fabulous. Her knowledge of the neighborhoods, buildings, shops, and history was outstanding, but it was her personality that made the tour. She is full of energy and incredibly knowledgeable, and she brings everyone in the tour together. We live in NJ and are in NYC all the time for dinner, theater, shopping and events. We didn’t think we would learn anything new, but we did! It was a great tour - whether you are new to NYC or have lived here for years. Don’t miss this experience. We’re sending all of our friends.

    What a wonderful tour! Our guide Jennifer was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area. And the food was absolutely unbelievable! Bleecker Street Pizza and Li-Lac Chocolates we’re the best I’d ever had. Would definitely recommend this tour and Jennifer as well! Thank you for showing us such a great time!

    This was a great way to see the High Line and sample the fantastic Greenwich Village food scene. Jillian is knowledgeable and fun and really seems to enjoy sharing the city with visitors. I highly recommend this tour!

    Great way to learn and see NY. Our guide, Nancy, was 5 star. Our teenagers (13 and 15) also enjoyed the tour. All the food spots were great. And the small more personalize group size was nice. Highly recommend!

    We have been on several walking food tours and this, compared to others, was very disappointing. The facts, stories, details shared by the guide were uninteresting, often irrelevant and not worth the time. Felt we learned very little about the High Line Park. The food portion was also disappointing: Sweets on an empty stomach followed by heavy pizza and meat sandwich was very unsettling and difficult to digest. Not a great way to celebrate Father’s Day.

    I coordinated this day with my coworkers to thank them for all the hard work they have done on a large project. I really wanted the day to be a day of relaxation and fun and this was such a great choice. Everyone, including myself, loved Alex. He was so informative and energetic and his passion for NYC is contagious. It was so great to see the development in the Highline and to learn about what is planned - can't wait for my next tour to see how it has changed. Beyond that, the food in Greenwich Village was delightful - we especially loved that every stop had a story about the food history. Highly recommend this tour to families and groups of all ages.
