Highly recommend!
Fantastic your! It was just two couples on the tour and it was a perfect way to start our day. We learned a ton about the area and really enjoyed the tour. As we passed other tour groups I couldn't help but think we really lucked out. Our guide was awesome and engaging and the small size made it feel like such a treat. Highly recommend.

Excellent tour and Guide - highly recommend!
Jun 2021
Took this tour last week as NYC was opening up again. What a great tour, and our guide Julian was excellent! Because it was a weekday, we ended up being the only people on the tour so was essentially a private tour. Met in front of Chelsea Market and proceeded to walk around Chelsea, the Meatpacking district, and High Line. Learned so many little nuggets of interesting information and history about the city and Chelsea in particular. Julian kept the tour interesting and entertaining. Would highly recommend!

Excellent walk around this area
Dec 2019
Patrick led us around on a very cool early December morning. As a result we were the only two on the tour, which made for a really cool personal tour! Patrick was informative and weaved humour into the anecodotes as we strolled around. Due to the snow the previous day, the High Line was closed but the tour still covered the details, we'll just need to head back another time! Great spots around the start and end of the tour to grab a late breakfast or early lunch. Highly recommended.

Brilliant tour by Liam of Top Dog
Oct 2019 • Family
A great way to start a few days in NYC as it really got us into the swing of things and showed us the highlights of an interesting part of the city which is a must for any visitor. Liam was great...very informative about the area, and also full of ideas for other things we could pack into our visit, including a great pizza place.

So glad we booked this tour!

Let’s face it, you can walk the Highline on your own, but if you want to learn more about the history this amazing neighborhood and understand the history that led to the revitalization of the Meatpacking district, then this tour is a must do. I gave this tour a 5-star because of our amazing guide, Amelia. Amelia was knowledgeable, charismatic, and warm. With Amelia as our guide, we felt less like we were on a guided tour and more like we were being shown around town by a friend!

Very informative; no treats

Patrick was engaging and fun. We learned a lot about the history of the area, and about the neighborhood as it exists now.
We never had the opportunity to sample any treats, but we still enjoyed the tour.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback from your tour. However, we wanted to clarify a statement you made since it might confuse any perspective guests. The group is given a break to explore the Chelsea Market. It's possible you chose to do something else during this time, but we've found most guest use this time to "sample treats" as you've put it. The guide even instructs the group this is what they should do during the break and usually provides a few suggestions. The tour also ends directly across from the Chelsea Market (to allow guests another visit) and in front of the Gaansevort Market to allow more food tastings. We hope you have a lovely stay here in the city and a safe trip home!
