Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Go beyond the typical tourist attractions with a laid-back stroll in this cool, elevated park that's popular with locals. Awesome views!
What You Can Expect
This two-hour walking tour of High Line Park takes you through the trendy Meatpacking District and into the Collier Publishing building, then along the 1.45 mile (2.33-kilometer) length of the park, which was once this elevated rail track. Your professional, knowledgeable guide will take you from the beginning of the Manhattan's West Side history through to the inception of the High Line, while identifying the unique plant life now inhabiting the former railroad tracks.
This region has been developed with public art, and the native greenery has been incorporated with the long forgotten tracks to create a spectacular, dynamic park. You will see magnificent views of the New York City skyline as well as the Hudson River. You will also have the opportunity to visit the White Star Pier, where the survivors of Titanic disembarked, as well as the old Nabisco factory, where the Oreo Cookie was invented.
Loved the tour and Annie was a wonderful guide!! There is so much more info we wouldn't have known if we'd just strolled it by ourselves.
Debra was fabulous! It was a highlight of our NYC weekend.
This tour was amazing!
We had a great time with the fabulous Annie - highly recommend
Annie was great! The Highline far surpassed our expectations-a very close second to Central Park. So well done. NYC has so many reasons to be proud of their city. I will definitely visit the Highline on my next trip to NYC.
What an interesting and fun way to spend a morning in NYC! A whole lot of people cared enough to work tirelessly for years to raise the money and do whatever was necessary to preserve and repurpose this piece of history. Our guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. The High Line is a NYC jewel.
Very good - went to Chelsea market first which was brilliant. Our tour guide Annie was very informative and gave us some great tips for our stay in New York. Park was very busy but plenty of places to stop and rest and to have a drink. Look forward to new part opening and visiting on next trip.
Our guide, Annie, was great - a real New Yorker. Loved the tour of Chelsea Market that she gave us before the High Line Park tour as well.
Excellent tour! Since it was a cold, windy day, we had Annie D., the Guide, all to ourselves. She was outstanding and had a great knowledge of the early history of NYC. We could also pace the tour to a speed with which we were comfortable. We would recommend this tour to everyone and recommend Annie as a Tour Guide for every tour. This was a wonderful, enlightening and memorable day for us!
Great Sunday morning walk and got to see a couple of celebrities on the walk
