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.

Great experience!!
The tour guy, Tom, was no time, explained us all historic facts and also answered our questions. At the end of the tour, kindly explained how to get to another destiny.

Christian Neely, our fantastic tour guide !
Oct. 2021
Christian Neely, our fantastic tour guide, provided great insights to the early origins and historical and cultural evolution of the Chelsea Market, Meatpacking district, and the High Line through out our 2 hour walking tour. He received and responded to all questions in a thorough, enthusiastic, and respectful manner. He related very well to all participants, including 2 young boys with lots of questions. Coming from another large east coast city, Philadelphia, Christian and I shared several discussions about comparisons between similar locations in both cities. He provided a few historical insights that I had not considered previously. I would highly recommend Christian to those considering a NYC tour.

So glad we did it!
Although I wish we would have walked more and covered more territory, our guide Tom was so knowledgeable, even having studied New York history. Very educational and fun!

New experience for frequent visitor
Oct. 2021 • Solo
I’ve been to NYC many, many times since I live 2hrs away, but I wanted to experience something new. I’m so glad I did because my tour guide Kevin Lawrence made this a well spent 2 hours. He gave a thorough history of each area we visited interwoven with personal interest stories that were entertaining. Since Kevin also does the street art tours, he was able to give a detailed answer to my question about a mural.
I loved that it started at 9:30am when there were fewer people out. After the tour, you were free to go back to explore in more depth and sample some of the food.
I plan to take another one of these affordable tours when I’m back again.

Jared - High Line and Chelsea Market Tour
Sep. 2021
We did this tour with Jared. Jared was, by far, the best tour guide we had in NY. He illuminated us with wonderful themes and concepts during his tour. Thank you Jared, great tour, and we wish everyone has a Jared as a tour guide for their tours.

Great Tour - not to be missed!
Sep. 2021
Christian Neely was a great and engaging guide, giving us a wonderful walking tour - seeing and learning about the Chelsea Market area and the High Line. This was certainly an added value experience we wouldn’t have gotten if we had done this on our own. This should be on everyone’s list to do when in NYC!
