Fantastic
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.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

There are 2-3 miles of walking at a leisurely pace. If you’re traveling with a stroller or wheelchair, the High Line also includes elevator access instead of stairs. However, the elevator may or may not be functional. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.

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

Yes, you’ll have enough time to travel from this tour to the SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown Walking Tour.  This trip will end at 11:30 a.m. Take the C or E subway two stops to Spring Street, where the SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown Walking Tour starts. Please do not hesitate to seek assistance from your guide.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.
