What to expect
  • Meet your private guide 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.

Spectacular Tour of the Highline!
Jun 2019 • Couples
We very much enjoyed our tour of Chelsea Market, the Meatpacking District and the Highline with Amelia - she was so knowledgeable! Although we were native New Yorkers, we recently returned to NY after being away for almost 20 years with periodic weekend visits - when we had lived here, the Chelsea Market had not existed - Amelia brought it all alive for us - terrific job!

This was a great way to visit Chelsea Market and Highline for the first time. It was nice to relax and have Amelia guide us on a comfortable, informative walking tour. She was friendly and made the experience fun. She packed in lots of facts and stories about the area. Amelia did a fabulous job and I would choose Top Dog and Amelia again!

YAS - New York and Rory!
May 2019 • Solo
Had such a great time walking about Chelsea with Rory. He knows so much about world history and New York. And, being an Englishman, gives his own objective viewpoint about the city from what he has experienced since he moved here. Super interesting. Loved his take on Lady Liberty, and this country's founding ideals, which we must still adhere to. Inspiring.
The tour itself was lovely. The weather was a bit nippy, but the sights made my soul so warm. What a great time!
10/10 recommend Rory.

Intimate tour of Meatpacking District
Mar 2019 • Friends
Alicia was a wonderful tour guide. We've been to Chelsea Market and the High Line before but we still learned several new tidbits! Loved her fun stories and the photos she provided as a visual to what she was describing. Had never really walked in the Meatpacking District so this was a great introduction. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Rory, our guide, was a wealth of historical information which made this tour fun and interesting. He was so personable and I would highly recommend him as a tour guide! He was at the designated meeting location when we arrived - stress free!
It is a walking tour, so wear comfortable shoes.

Must do tour in NYC with a must have guide!
May 2018 • Friends
My sisters and I have been to NYC several times and have never done this tour. We had Rory for our guide and he was excellent, very informative, relaxed and so interesting. We had a small group of 5 people so was perfect for walking around crowded areas. I loved this tour and will definitely be back to visit Chelsea Market. We walked back to our hotel, 51st and 7th and did most of it on the High Line, which goes to 34th and 15th. Highly recommend the tour and request Rory for your guide.
