The High Line, aka High Line Park, is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33-km) New York City park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of old New York Central Railroad called the West Side Line. The High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park.

This walking tour runs the full length of the park, from the Tiffany and Co. Foundation Overlook—with a view eastward to the Meatpacking District and westward to the Whitney Museum of American Art—to the CSX Transportation Gate.

In between, there are sundecks and more overlooks to see. There’s also a two-block-long pathway that winds through a miniature forest of dogwoods, bottlebrush buckeye, hollies, roses, and other dense shrubs and trees, plus a grove of bigleaf magnolia, sassafras, and serviceberry trees. There’s even some of the wild landscape that grew up on the High Line before it was a park, like crabapple trees, asters, sedges, goldenrods, and alumroot.

On this tour, there will also be a chance to visit Pier 54, where the survivors of the Titanic arrived, and the old Nabisco factory at Chelsea Market, where the original Oreo Cookie was invented.

High Line Park was once the High Line, an elevated freight railroad track that connected trains directly to factories and warehouses. In 1847 street-level railroads allowed freight trains to utilize Manhattan's West Side as their main thoroughfare. New York's "West Side Cowboys" assisted in managing the traffic, however because so many accidents occurred, the city and state of New York and the New York Central Railroad constructed the High Line as part of the Manhattan West Side Improvement Project. After the High Line was no longer used, it was commissioned into High Line Park. This two-hour walking tour of High Line Park takes you through the trendy Meatpacking District and into the Collier Publishing building, then along the 1.45 mile (2.33-kilometer) length of the park, which was once this elevated rail track. Your professional, knowledgeable guide will take you from the beginning of the Manhattan's West Side history through to the inception of the High Line, while identifying the unique plant life now inhabiting the former railroad tracks. This region has been developed with public art, and the native greenery has been incorporated with the long forgotten tracks to create a spectacular, dynamic park. You will see magnificent views of the New York City skyline as well as the Hudson River. You will also have the opportunity to visit the White Star Pier, where the survivors of Titanic disembarked, as well as the old Nabisco factory, where the Oreo Cookie was invented.

Despite the rain we had a very enjoyable trip. The local guide Annie was great, lots of information and knowledgeable about the area. Don't bother having breakfast you can pick up some great food as the trip starts with a stroll through Chelsea market . We would recommend this as an excellent way to experience the High Line.

Arrangements for meeting guide were terrible. We went to the High Line but we were supposed to go to a cafe to meet up. Nearly missed the whole thing which would have been an enormous waste of money and very disappointing. Guide was interesting and informed but not sure that it was really worth what we paid

Recently spent the morning with Annie our guide on the New York on the High Line Park Walking Tour. Annie was very well informed, interesting and fun and highlighted many points of interest around the Meat Packing District, Chelsea Markets and the High Line. The High Line now extends to 34th Street which was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Our tour guide was Anna and she was very knowledgeable about the area. We really enjoyed the tour, helped by great weather, the High Line walk gives you good views around the area. We did feel though that the tour would have been better taken the other way around- finishing in the meatpacking district as we would have like to continue to walk around by ourselves and spend more time at the Chelsea Market. Definately recommended

I visited N.Y and put in for a number of N.Y tours. I found this to be one of the better ones. Started in Chelsa met Deb, who took us through the markets and explained the history of he meatpackers area, then to the highline. Great idea for disused rail lines, made walking the line easy, deb kept us informed of various buildings and the architecture. Finished up near 34 st, which made it easy to return to hotel.
