Great journey of discovery

The High Line Walking Tour turned out to be a highlight of our visit to NYC, thanks in part to the knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. The involvement of the neighborhood and the municipality in the realization and maintenance is encouraging. However, the walk also illustrates in a very confrontational way how the city is developing. The necessary counterbalance to cynical project developers is still somewhat present, but it makes it painfully clear how disrespectful historical heritage is relentlessly sacrificed to impersonal 'progress'.

Kevin was AWESOME

That was the best guide we ever had. So well informed, local so knew past and present too. Kevin gave us so much history, all the facts and even took us further than our tour to show us where to go for lunch! Would rate him 100 % and the tour too.

Fun, interesting and delicious

Alex was very knowledgeable and made our tour fun and interesting. Although part of our to was canceled due to weather Alex made it up with food and drink and interesting conversation. Would definitely use his service again.
