Full description
On this 2-hour guided tour you’ll take a walk through the High Line, New York’s only elevated park. The 1-mile-long linear park was created on a section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad on Manhattan’s west side. Stroll through the Chelsea neighborhood from a unique vantage point, treading along the path once traversed by fire-breathing locomotives! Enjoy surprising views of the Hudson River. The tour begins at the famous Chelsea marketplace and a visit to an art gallery may be included. Walk through former factories and warehouses, where trains would unload their goods right inside the building. Hear stories about the famous Meatpacking District and how it was transformed from rows of slaughterhouses to one of the most chic neighborhoods in the world. See amazing architecture ranging from the ultramodern Standard Hotel and the undulating glass curtain design of the IAC building to the Art Deco-era Empire State Building.

The tour was very informative. Maki, our tour guide, was excellent. He was full of interesting facts and full of energy as well. You could tell he really enjoys his job! Would recommend to all. We did a private tour of only the 4 of us and it was well worth the extra money.

Kevin L. Was our guid for this tour and he did an incredible job introducing himself, the city and specifically chealse and the high line. Lots of pictures to get an idea of the then and now which helps appreciate more the transformation of the district. Would definitely suggest this tour!

Gabby was pleasant but a few too many stories or comments about sexual topics for a family tour (what she and her tour witnessed in the windows of the Standard Hotel/Standard Hotel opening its doors to affected New Yorkers during the recent power outage and innuendo about how their time was spent are just two specific examples). I’m far from a prude, but the extent of similar comments was unnecessary. Then, she provided totally inaccurate information about the new 30 Hudson Yards building and “balcony.” She said it was part of a $35 million penthouse. Its actually an observation deck opening to the public later this year
