We spent a lovely morning walking thru Chelsea seeing the exciting Market and the High Line and Meatpacking District. Rory was knowledgeable and brought the area back to its beginnings which was a treat for a couple of history buffs. Learned a lot, visited a new part of the city for us and the pace was just right. Two hours flew by.
We learned a lot about the history of NYC from our guide on this tour. She was charming and informative. The tour itself was amazing. The Highline Park was well-worth seeing. Congratulations to those who had the foresight to build it. on top of the old rail system. We sent back to Chelsea Market to explore in detail after the tour.
Great tour! Loved the Highline walk. Our guide Patrick was knowledgeable and fun and we were very spoilt as we were the only two on the tour so it was virtually ‘private’ - appreciate that they never cancelled which many companies may have.
Really enjoyable, as a visitor the tour provides you with the opportunity to learn about the area and history that you just wouldn't get by simply visiting the area. Really provided intwresting insight into an important area of NYC.
My cousin and I recently took the small group walking tour of the Highline area. We were the only two on Jordan's tour that day and essentially ended up with a private tour. Jordan is a wonderful tour guide and most definitely made the tour what it was. While not a native born New Yorker, he has certainly done his research and was able to give us not only the historical facts about this area, but interesting tidbits as well. We would highly recommend this tour as a great way to spend a few hours in NYC, and if you are lucky enough to have Jordan as your guide, you definitely won't be disappointed!
Booked this tour and day of tour was rainy. Attempted to push it back a day and was told by the vendor that a 20.00 per person charge would apply. Hotel supplied us with umbrellas and we were on our way. As it turned out rain was not an issue and our tour guide Liz who was very good took us on a two hour jaunt of this very interesting district. Would recommend this tour.
Don't miss this! We went on a beautiful Saturday morning and it could not have been more perfect. Our guide, Sean, was friendly and knowledgeable. The High Line is a lovely marvel and the Meatpacking District is more interesting than it sounds :
