What You Can Expect

High Line and Chelsea Walking Tour

Explore the High Line - New York City's only elevated park!

Chelsea Market is your meeting spot for this action-packed and information-frenzied 2-hour 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 2-hour 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 area of NYC. Tour was informative. It would have been a little more enjoyable during the warmer months, as the HighLine area is very scenic. Great tour for the price. Lots of history and side stories.

We had a great tour with Maki! He was very informative and made the tour very interesting and fun. While you can walk the High Line on your own, this tour really brought the elements to life learning about the history. Glad we took this tour and would recommend!
