What a fantastic tour with a GREAT guide! Gabby was wonderful and even during a pandemic with masks and distancing our group was able to have a great time and learn a lot. We thought our feet would be tired, but it was just the right amount of stopping to learn about the area and walking through the beautiful neighborhoods. We learned SO much and were super impressed with Gabby's knowledge and excitement for the history of this great city!! Thanks for an A++ tour! I would absolutely recommend this to those locals and out of towners that what to learn more about these unique neighborhoods as well as get great advice on where to eat, shop, and things to see!

Guide and learning new things!
The process was easy, the guide was unbelievable and without being too nerdy I learned a lot from him, despite having been to NYC and the Highline many times. Great.

Jenny our guide had so much knowledge about the highline and the surrounding buildings/areas! Got a little bit of time to go shopping and score some beautiful jewelry from Chelsea Markets. Such a great tour and even better guide, highly recommend!

How much walking is there?

There’s 2-3 miles of walking at a moderate pace. If you’re traveling with a stroller or wheelchair, the High Line also has elevator access instead of stairs, but we can’t guarantee the elevator will be working. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

Can I do the SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown Walking Tour at 12 p.m. after this tour?

Yes, you will have enough time to get from this tour to the SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown Walking Tour. This tour ends at 11:30 a.m. Take the nearby downtown C or E train just two stops to Spring Street where the SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown Walking Tour begins. Feel free to ask your guide for help.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
