Me and my family had the privilege of getting toured with Debbie M. She was very knowledgeable and provided as much information as she can about the history of Chelsea/High Line Park. Debbie was also very considerate with our personal needs (bathroom breaks, walking stops, family photos) and made sure that we were all accommodated properly. Highly recommend this tour as more people should attend it: Chelsea is a treasure trove of history and it really brings out a lot about New York's past and progress, especially once you see the park and the highline. You will definitely get all your money's worth since I personally think it is better to tour these hotspots with a professional guide to highlight the background of the attractions.

We always love doing something we've never done before when visiting NYC and this was PERFECT! Debbie loves what she does and it shows ~ her energy is contagious and her knowledge is exceptional. The High Line itself is such a joy, but to hear details of the architectural aspects of the surrounding buildings and who lives there is an added bonus. This tour gives you a clear picture of how Meatpacking and Chelsea come together and really gives you a feel for what the Meatpacking District was back in the day. If time permits, going to The Little Island is definitely worth it ~ you see firsthand the creativity and ingenuity of New Yorkers and their appreciation for green spaces. I give this an A+!

It was so kind of you to that a few moments to review your 'Secrets of the High Line' tour. Having you join this tour was an absolute delight and its wonderful to know how much you enjoyed it. Although the historic districts visited on tour, will remain protected from any major changes, glass towers will likely continue to pop-up in the Chelsea neighborhood, especially in those areas closest to the High Line. Although a stark juxtaposition between the neighborhood buildings of the 19th century and modern architectural marvels that hug the High Line today, I'm sure you'll agree that it makes for a pretty interesting tapestry of structures! Undoubtedly, as New York City re-emerges post-COVID19 pandemic, the areas visited during your tour will continue to evolve and grow. All along the Hudson River waterfront NYC is creating more and more 'green' spaces for visitors and locals, to enjoy. The Little Island is indeed, a beautiful and innovative addition to our City and we knew you'd love it! We hope that you will share your tour experience with others and will tour with us once more when visiting the NYC area. It is with sincere appreciation that we thank you for your kind and thoughtful review and we look forward to serving you again!

Debbie M. was our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing! Her knowledge of the city, the architecture, the High Line and overall history of the area was outstanding. Probably the best city tour I have ever had. I highly recommend requesting Debbie M. if you are able to do so. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed myself, and my 13-year-old niece was completely in awe! Not easy to do! :-)

Although I have been to the High Line many times and been on a tour, the tour with Debbie I brought my friends from Atlanta on was just amazing.They had never been to Chelsea so Debbie covered it all. She was engaging, witty, incredibly knowledgeable and most of all fun! She went at our old lady pace and was so mindful of the rain, sun, etc.! She could not have done one thing more to make our time with her so enjoyable. I highly recommend her to any one, any group, any age as i know she will tailor your tour to whatever she is presented with. Bravo to a lovely lady and a tour guide par excellance.

Great tour with lots of interesting history and tidbits of trivia! Debbie was a gracious host and guide. She was prepared with photographs of the various sights we saw and gave her own insights as a born and bred New Yorker. She offered to take pictures for us and knew just when to offer us stopping breaks. I highly recommend this tour for those who have an interest in local history and how this history has helped informed the changing and future landscape of the area.

This is a must do experience! Having walked the High Line a few times before I didn’t think there was anything else to know about it. I was wrong! Our professional tour guide Debbie Mason met us on time at a designated location with iPad in hand that she uses throughout the tour to show historical photos of the meatpacking district and surrounding areas. We asked for an architectural focus and Debbie delivered!! She revealed so many amazing stories and High Line vantage points that I hadn’t noticed on past visits.
Debbie was also thoughtful about asking us if we needed to sit or take a bathroom break. This tour is a “must do” the next time you visit New York!

Hi, Elisa. It was my absolute pleasure to deliver on my promise that both you and Kim would enjoy a wonderfully memorable experience of NYC's incredible "Park-in-the-Sky"! I'm hopeful that you found your visit to "Little Island" extremely enjoyable, as well. I'd like to thank you for this kind and thoughtful review and for taking some time to share your “Secrets of the Highline” tour experience, with others. As we begin our post-pandemic recovery and our slow but steady return to pre-pandemic "normalcy", reviews are so very important in that they provide potential visitors with invaluable insight into tour experiences. That can be a powerful and really helpful tool in guiding their booking decisions and assuring them of the best quality experiences. I’d like to express how truly appreciative I am for this wonderful review and I’m quite sure that future travelers will be appreciative, as well. I offer you my heartfelt thanks for the review and for allowing me the privilege of guiding you and Kim around this iconic, "must-see" part of my amazing City. I am hopeful for the opportunity to serve you again on some future tour experience. All the best! Debbie

Debbie is very knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Chelsea and along the High Line. We learned about meat packing, Little Island, and how the High Line came to be. We saw a beautiful sunset and views of Manhattan and New Jersey that couldn’t be beat. Highly recommend taking the tour, especially if you’re interested in architecture.

There are lots of tours you can take in NYC. What makes this one stand out is the GUIDE. Debbie is funny, warm, and extremely knowledgeable. Plus, she's a great photographer. At my request, she took several pics with my phone, many of which were of my family and me with spectacular backdrops. The tour is loaded with facts and sights that you wouldn't get if you wandered the High Line on your own.

By the end, I truly felt like we gained a friend.

I highly recommend this tour. We, my husband, my 14 year old daughter, and I, all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Two thumbs up!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Debbie last week. She was delightful and a fount of knowledge about the High Line as well as art and archetecture in the city. She used pictures on her iPad to elaborate on what we saw and learned. I would highly recommend Debbie for any tour she offers. She was GREAT!
