Highlights
  • Visit an area that most tourists overlook
  • Enjoy the personalized experience of a small group
  • Learn lesser-known trivia about the High Line
  • Get insider suggestions for the rest of your trip
What to expect
  • Chelsea Market is your meeting spot for this action-packed and information-frenzied 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 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 Time with Christian Neely
Jul 2021
Christian N. was a very fun and enthusiastic guide. He provided us tremendous historical information about the High Line and Meatpacking district that was extremely interesting. In New York you often times walk by seemingly unsuspecting buildings or landmarks that are actually very rich in history, but are only revealed to you by a person that thoroughly knows the area. Christian was beyond friendly and had a great personality, making sure we all had a wonderful time. I loved the experience and would absolutely do it again!

Great Highline experience with Christian
Jul 2021
Make the Highline a part of your NYC experience. The tour involves an easy walk on the elevated path with wonderful views of the city. Christian does a great job sharing the history of the Chelsey market area and the development of this gem of a park. Thankfully, community members supported the development. Christian is warm and welcoming and engages all in the group with his insights and good humor.

High Line with Kevin Lawrence was great!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Step away from the crowd of Times Square and learn about the Chelsea High Line. This is a beautiful area, and Kevin Lawrence led a great tour as he told us the history of the area and his own personal experiences as a child there. Thanks again!

Guide and learning new things!
Feb 2020
The process was easy, the guide was unbelievable and without being too nerdy I learned a lot from him, despite having been to NYC and the Highline many times. Great. Maki had a balance between making jokes and being informative. I loved the parts about the posh restaurants outside Chelsea Market and the...'dodgy' building at the docks!
