My friends and I take shopping trips to NYC 2-3 times a year but had gotten into a shopping rut - always going to the same stores. This tour exposed us to a whole new section of the city to explore...small boutiques with unique items. Our guide was attentive to each tour participant's interests and told us lots of great facts about the neighborhood and the stars who live there. Highly recommend!

This tour was the highlight of my teenage daughter's birthday! We've been to the city quite often but our tour guide, the effervescent Jackie, opened our eyes to another slice of life in the Big Apple. Jackie was knowledgable and accommodating, we experienced fashion, food and culture with a pro!

We did not have enough people for the guided tour, so Viator arranged for a self-guided tour with printed itinerary and accompanying map. The itinerary was prepared based on the age of my daughter, and the resulting list of shops represented a list of styles that would suite anyone's tastes. We would highly recommend this as an option.

We loved this tour! The girls had great knowledge on the local area, took us into a wide variety of stores that we would never have found on our own and were friendly, funny and helpful!

This was a good, quick way to become familiar with the area. Our guide gave us a great map and pointed out some places we may not have known about, like a local artists market. You don't get a lot of time at each shopping spot, but with the map, you can mark the places you want to return to shop more. Don't miss the street vendor selling one of kind, beautiful rings on Prince and Greene. Say yes to this tour!

Wonderful tour - highly recommended to All who like to shop! Had no expectations from this tour; was just hoping to see some interesting stores. I was so impressed with the knowledge of the guide, the truly interesting array of shops we were taken to and the amount that was "crammed" into the time period. Its an artform to move women around like this. It was a really enjoyable experience. Check it out!

A wonderfully comprehensive tour and great shopping experience. Our charming and knowledgable guide was attuned to our group and clearly ammended the stops to suit us. This was far more than just being led to a couple of stores. We were weaved through a large area, stopping in about 10 shops, all the while hearing interesting things about the area. I noted that this largely a chic and expensive area, and that the places we were taken to were unique but yet the more affordable locations among the many. But make no mistake, this is NYC, so dont expect cheap.But do expect some terrific shopping and a fun way to spend a morning in NYC
