About the tour

What do you do with a forgotten site that has become an eyesore? You turn it into something beautiful! An abandoned elevated railway on Manhattan's west side has been transformed into a new park - The High Line. Join as as we walk from the southern-most tip of The High Line all the way to The Vessel at Hudson Yards - a newly completed ambitious project that covered rail yards to create new real estate. We'll move fast, cover a great distance and see Manhattan from a different viewpoint - hovering above the streets!

Meet your local guide

Aaron K. and Patrick

Aaron and Patrick both grew up on farms, but having lived in New York City for over 25 years, they consider themselves New Yorkers. Their tours are energetic and fast-paced - much like the city they love. While venturing through New York City's iconic highlights, viewers will also discover some hidden gems and learn where to find a sweet treat or the best slice of New York-style pizza. Better yet, you get to stroll through Times Square (and on New Year's eve, catch over a million partiers!) or see a stunning fireworks display from Belvedere Castle. "We have so many funny memories but here are two of our favorites. During one of our Christmas tours, we slipped on the ice in front of hundreds of Virtualtrips viewers - luckily, we were fine! On a different tour, we happened upon a person dressed as a tap-dancing fox in Washington square park. A rare sighting indeed!" Patrick laughs. Virtual trips voyagers have the opportunity to see New York from Aaron and Patrick's perspective. Their positive energy is infectious and each tour feels like a love letter to the city. Come take a bite out of The Big Apple with the NYC tour!

Really great to see the Highline now the Spring is here! Lots of greenery and some new sculptures! Being with the Guys is such fun! They make me laugh, which is much needed at the moment! Thank you both!

As always, any tour with Aaron and Patrick is a delight. The High Line tour was no exception, and their knowledge of their city is truly amazing considering they were not raised there. Heck I know native New Yorkers who do not know half of what they do.
