Full description
Start your 2-hour tour in front of the world famous Chelsea Market. Spend some free time inside the market, sample baked goods and snacks and even do a little shopping. Hear about the infamous Death Avenue before heading up to The Highline, a linear park built on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur. Enjoy fantastic views of Chelsea Piers and see where the ill-fated Titanic was meant to dock in 1912. Admire the 18-story luxury boutique Standard Hotel and other local architecture. After visiting The Highline, head into the heart of the Meatpacking District. See the Gansevoort Hotel and walk past several high-fashion flagship stores and some trendy bars.

Cecilia was great; very knowledgable and enthusiastic. But we felt the overall content was light, and not worthy of the money we paid.
