This was a great walking tour of the High Line, Meatpacking Dist, and Greenwich Village (Village Sampler). Danielle was our guide and her enthusiasm for the area was definitely infectious. A born and raised New Yorker, she was able to bring a sense of living in the city to her comments along with imparting history and how neighborhoods have changed so quickly. We also got a couple snacks in 2 charming locations. Very informative and interesting. She was also quite good at stopping in shady areas as it was a pretty warm day. 3.5 hrs well spent and a real sense of some of New York's famous neighborhoods imparted.
We just got back to Sweden after a week in NY. The tour with CityRover were one of the high points during our stay. We were a small group, focus on city development was really interesting and our guide could answer all our questions. Except from the key message of the tour we also had a chance to learn a lot about the American systems and way of life. So thanks a lot for making a memorable and interesting tour, I hope we get the chance to follow another one during our next visit!
Danielle with CityRover is excellent! We had a (private) group of 14 women for a 4 hour tour of the Highline, Greenwich Village, etc and it was wonderful. She's a delightful companion and very fun and knowlegable about the city she loves. Would definitely take another tour with Danielle and CityRover!
Additional Tour Info
How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3.5 miles on foot in about 3.5 hours. There will be a couple of breaks along the way. The terrain is flat except for some stairs to get up and down the High Line (if the elevators are not working). However, we try to maintain a steady walking pace to cover all the areas of interest. So if you think you might find it difficult to keep up at a moderate walking speed with the rest of the group, please consider a private tour with us, which can be tailored to suit your pace and fitness level.
What About Kids? Our public tours are not ideal for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. If you would like to tour with us and have children ages 10 and younger, please contact us about a private tour. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets ($25 each) available for each public tour for children ages 12 and under.
