Private Meatpacking District Chelsea Market and The Highline Walking Tour
From US$70.00
Overview
Experience the rebirth of two of New York’s most famous neighborhoods during this 2-hour private trip with stops in Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Experience New York’s trendiest spots for food, fashion, art, and leisure as you stop by the Chelsea Market, tour the once-gritty and now trendy Meatpacking District, and explore the famous Highline Park.
What to Expect
Meet your private guide at the intersection of 15th Street and 9th Avenue near Chelsea Market. You’ll start your excursion inside this former Nabisco Factory turned into an artisanal shopping sector, offering you time to sample a variety of produce, baked goods, snacks and groceries (own expense).
Leaving the market behind, climb the stairs up to New York’s newest superstar attraction, The Highline Park. Built along what was once an abandoned elevated railway line, this transformed green space today offers a 1.45-mile (2.3-kilometer) walking strip offering great views of nearby attractions like Chelsea Piers, and the slick Standard Hotel that now towers above it. You’ll also hear details about the Highline’s construction, including controversy created by local residents.
After finishing with the Highline, proceed into the Meatpacking District. This formerly gritty area that once housed the city’s meat processing industry today is home to some of its trendiest retail and nightlife businesses. Check out the chic Gansevoort Hotel before exploring several hip bars and high-end fashion stores.

Highlight of our trip

Rory, our guide, was amazing and very knowledgeable. I loved the stories of the history of the area. Chelsea market is lovely and the highline great, even in winter. To me it once again shows the impact ordinary people can make on their world.More

I don't know about refunds but these are small tours: if you don't show up they need to go home. Out of respect for the guide, only book if you really plan to go. It's really worth it, plan your other stuff around it :)
