Highlights
  • Visit an area that most tourists overlook
  • Enjoy the personalized experience of a small group
  • Learn lesser-known trivia about the High Line
  • Get insider suggestions for the rest of your trip
What to expect
  • Chelsea Market is your meeting spot for this action-packed and information-frenzied guided stroll through the High Line, trendy Chelsea, and even trendier Meatpacking District. After greeting the guide, ascend to the High Line Park, one of two elevated parks on the planet (the other is in Paris). After the railway was abandoned in the 1970s, the elevated structure sat unused and unloved for decades until a movement began to turn it into a park. Finally, in 2009, phase 1 opened and it has been a huge hit ever since. Meet your guide at Chelsea Market to begin this exciting and information-packed guided walk through the elevated park known as the High Line as well as Chelsea and the trendy Meatpacking District. As of 2014, all three phases have been completed. Walk a portion of the High Line as the guide points out cutting edge architecture and art projects along the way. Descend the park and begin to stroll the streets of Chelsea, a neighborhood crammed with art galleries, cool restaurants, and chilled-out cafes. Learn about the history of the area before making your way to the Meatpacking District, popular with trendy Europeans (and the people who love them). The cobblestone street-laden neighborhood was once a center for meat production: today it's all about eating meat and drinking trendy cocktails.

Informative and amusing guide, a really enjoyable tour.
Kevin Lawrence was a superb guide, moving us through the tour at a sensible pace which allowed us to cover as much as possible without being rushed. He is a knowledgeable and amusing guide and he made the tour a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Fun Tour!

Philip did a great job making the tour both fun and interesting. Like many neighborhoods in New York, things have changed a lot over the decades. Learning how what once was has become what now is provides a better understand of why things are the way they are today.

More than we expected!!
Our walking tour of the High Line, Chelsea and the Meatpacking district was top-notch! Our guide, Kevin Lawrence, was superb! He brought a wealth of local color and very detailed information to the experience. He’s a born and bred New Yorker which gives him a unique perspective to the neighborhoods we visited as well as a keen insight into the history and factors which have influenced their evolution into the vibrant areas they are today! Bravo, Kevin!

A must when visiting NYC
I love walking tours and these tour wasn't the exception, Maki was our tour guy and it was amazing! He told us the origins of the meatpacking district, Chelsea market and the highline. He told us the perfect mix of history, culture and celebrities fun facts.

Couldn't have asked for more, a must when visiting NYC.

I also took the one around Soho, little Italy and Chinatown, I would have loved to take the one from Dumbo and Central Park but I didn't have any days left.

The reason I took them was because these tours are included in the new York pass wich was GREAT.
