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.

Entertaining AND informative - our guide, Eric, was absolutely terrific. He made exploring the High Line park so much more enjoyable than just trying to walk it by yourself. If you want an excellent experience, go with a guide!

Kevin was the best tour guide with lots of laughs and interesting historical facts of the Chelsea Market, the High Line park, peirs and the Meat Packing district. This tour is highly recommended and if you can ask for Kevin as he is also a stand up comic at the Gotham comedy club.

The tour gave a lot to see and a lot of information without being rushed. The guide, Kevin, was good-humored and willing to take any questions the group had. He also gave a lot of good tips on where to eat in the Chelsea neighborhood.
