Your tour of the Meatpacking District kicks off at the Chelsea Market, which is known for its diverse food shops selling savory and sweet treats. You'll hear the history of this popular attraction that was once a Nabisco factory and sample baked goods while you enjoy some shopping.

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. 

After a stroll through this popular park, you'll head into the heart of the Meatpacking District. See the Gansevoort Hotel and stunning Whitney Museum of American Art before walking past several high-fashion flagship stores and some trendy bars.

This was a fabulous tour of places in the city that maybe a little less recognized. We truly enjoyed the tour.

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.

Great day!

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!

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.
Fun and Informative

We spent a lovely morning walking thru Chelsea seeing the exciting Market and the High Line and Meatpacking District. Rory was knowledgeable and brought the area back to its beginnings which was a treat for a couple of history buffs. Learned a lot, visited a new part of the city for us and the pace was just right. Two hours flew by.
We learned a lot about the history...

We learned a lot about the history of NYC from our guide on this tour. She was charming and informative. The tour itself was amazing. The Highline Park was well-worth seeing. Congratulations to those who had the foresight to build it. on top of the old rail system. We sent back to Chelsea Market to explore in detail after the tour.
