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.

Although I thought this was a food tour of the Chelsea Market and a tour of High Line Park, it was just a walk through of the market. The Park portion was incredible though, in great part due to our awesome guide - Christian. He was so informative and fun! Highly recommend this tour!!

Kevin Lawrence was a great tour guide. His knowledge of New York City and particularly the architecture and high line was impressive. We will surely book another tour.

Very well organised with clear instructions on where to meet. I was a little worried about the size of the group but it turns out there were 2 guides so i was in a group of 12 which was a manageable size. Christian Neely was my tour guide and he was really knowledgeable. Walking through Chelsea market right at the start is see it very quiet was great so when I returned after the tour I had photos of the building with less people in the way and could then look in the shops/have lunch. Good to do on a Sunday if you like people watching although it did mean some of the recommended eating stops were busy.

Brandon was our tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed his interesting commentary about the history of not only the Chelsea Market, Meat Packing District, and High Line. Thanks for all the "fun facts" about the piers, buildings and historical accounts. Great stories.

Our guide, Brandon, was knowledgeable about the Chelsea district. It was a pleasure to have him as a guide, and I recommend him highly.
