Fabulous shopping tour of the Garment District. Our guide, Keve, was knowledgeable and personable and fun to be with. I can't recommend this highly enough.

We were very happy with the variety of showrooms on the tour, and each of us found something to buy, even my 10 year old granddaughter. Jacque was well-organised, informative and took the trouble to arrange for us to recover an item left behind in one of the showrooms.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Tour guide told us all about the places we went to. was very informative and took us to a variety of factories. Guide also gave us directions, advice and places to do additional shopping which was not on the tour. Did not know about the great restaurants in New York however one of the streets we passes she told us about the variety of foods and prices. Very educational tour also.

Hardeep was excellent. I enjoyed most of the stops. Got some great pieces at very reasonable prices. I liked that we also received a list of other sample sales we could go to on our own. We did, and found some great stuff. A college student interested in fashion design accompanied me and she was able to ask designers, student interns and our guide questions about the fashion industry and how to break into it. Our guide gave her some excellent tips and resources to keep her up to date on industry trends.

Our guide was friendly, informative and lots of fun. I booked this tour specifically for my 13 year old niece, who is consumed with fashion. Our guide provided so many useful facts and suggestions for her. The showrooms and designers / staff were also fabulous. Many fantastic purchases and memories made.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Our guide Keve was amazing. Her love of what she was doing was evident throughout out the tour.
If it was to become possible a shoe and boot showroom would be a most welcome addition for this happy shopper
Renee and the last stop Ms zutton were the high lights for myself and my husband
Thank you!

This was one of the best tours I have taken in New York. Our guide was professional and knowledgeable and the pace of the tour was perfect. I found some great deals on beautiful clothing that is not available in retail stores. Thank you - I plan on going back in the spring.

We took this tour with Christina and had a fantastic time! She is well connected and full of knowledge about all the areas of New York and we came away with an exceptional experience. We saw a side of the city that would have never happened had we not gone "behind the scenes" with Christina. The shopping and designers were very warm and welcoming and we felt no pressure to purchase. I got 2 amazing dresses, 2 handbags and several pieces of jewelry. A future tour is definitely on our to do list and we will bring more money! Christina was a perfect guide and we now have a friend in New York!

We had a great time - Jackie our guide was fabulous - we loved her ! It was fun - the only thing I would suggest is to make it clear in the tour description that you will have the opportunity to purchase items DURING the tour and should bring CASH - Jackie was great and took us to a bank so we could get cash.
I will highly recommend to others. This was a mother - daughter trip - and it added greatly to our trip to New York - thank you !
