Next, you'll head up to the High Line—a 1.45-mile (2.33 kilometer) park built on an elevated train line that's no longer in use. Learn about the controversy surrounding its development, and take in fantastic views of the West Side of Manhattan.

New discoveries in Chelsea area.
Donald_W, Nov 2021
Christine was very pleasant and personable. We had a small group so it was easy to hear and questions could be addressed. It was our first introduction to the Highline which we had heard of and the Chelsea Market was an interesting experience to visit. We also walked to see where and what the "Little Island" (park)was.
‘Twas Good

Chelsea Tour
Anne_M, Mar 2020
We really enjoyed our tour with Alyssa. She was very knowledgeable, and made the tour a lot of fun. It was windy and cold on the day of our tour, and it was mostly outside, so we were a bit frozen when we finished. But, Alyssa managed to get us inside and let us warm up when she could. This is an area of the city that we had not previously been to, and we were really glad that we made time for it.
A Great 2+ Hours !

This tour was very informative. Amelia did a great job with her knowledge and insight of the area ...specifically the Chelsea Market and the Highline itself. She was very congenial and integrated everyone on the tour resulting in a great experience. It is a really good activity for anyone with zero knowledge of this part of NYC.
Highline tour
John R, Aug 2019
The Highline Walking Tour we took on Sunday August 11th was great. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We would recommend it .
Great day!
Sheila R, Jun 2019
This tour was a great way to explore Chelsea Market and the highline for the first time. The tour was fun, informative and introduced us to lots of things to see and do in the area. Our guide Amelia was friendly and well prepared. She knew exactly where to go and the interesting landmarks to point out. At the end of the tour we had time to return to a few places on our own and enjoy a great lunch. We loved it!
Meatpackers Tour
Lyn_H, May 2019
This was both enjoyable and informative. Ched, our guide was helpful and insightful. We would recommend this tour and the tour company.
Nice small group!
Suzanne Y, Apr 2019
We only have 4 of us in the group which made it a nice intimate tour. Not a struggle to hear for sure! Fun area. I'd have liked to have walked a lot further on the Highline itself and heard a bit more about specific buildings.
