  • What an amazing trip this was! We were so lucky to have Debbie. She was brilliant and so informative. The experience started off the day before when we recived an email to confirm our booking and to warn us to wrap up warm as it was expected to be a chilly day the next day. Debbie was waiting for us when we arrived with a huge smile and gave us such a warm welcome. We started of with a thorough tour of Chelsea Market first and then went straight on to the amazing High Line. Debbie had so much knowledge and information about the whole tour and took some amazing photos of us. You could tell she was very passionate about the High Line with all the information we were given and we are so pleased we booked it as a tour. We were lucky to be the only 2 on this tour and even though it was for 2 hours out trip lasted at least 3 hours! At the end Debbie asked where we were going to next and as she was free she accompanied us on our next stop to the Empire State Building where we had a private tour from her. Someone was looking over us that day. The whole experience was amazing and it was made extra special by having Debbie.
