  • We really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was held up on the train due to no fault of her own and the company made up for the inconvenience. Highly recommend.

  • We had a wonderful time and found some great bargains

  • This was a super fun trip. Our tour guide was super fun and did a great job! My only complaint was that a few of the stops were not that great. One place had an amazing showroom, but only let a picture from a VERY small section. It seemed pointless and we saw a bunch of really cute stuff that we could not buy. We also had a stop to a trunk show that was super picked over by the time we got there. The first 2 places were amazing and they basically made the trip worthwhile.

  • Only worth doing if you have plenty of spare cash!! Got to see designers in their studios and parts of New York you wouldn't normally see but the samples were more expensive than we thought and only took cash! We wanted some history - maybe a different tour?


  • I loved the tour. The description should include the fact that some of the showrooms required cash and did not take credit cards. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We did encounter one showroom where the staff was rude and unorganized but the company gave us a list of other sample sales to do. Nice

  • Keve was wonderful! She had so much information to share. We learned so much about shopping in New York. Some day in the future, My granddaughter and I would love to take your SoHo tour and can only hope Keve will be our guide..

  • This was so much fun!! I was with my granddaughter and we had a blast!!

  • My mom and I took this tour a week ago and were very lucky to have a wonderful guide- Lisa Marie. She was extremely informative, patient, and a lot of fun. One thing I would recommend for the tour is to not feel pressured to buy the items offered at each location. Also, at one of the designer stops we went to, we were early for our appointment and the designer was very rude and made us feel rushed and guilty because she said another group was going to come in soon. Also, maybe have the tour include more history of the Garment District rather than it feeling like just a shopping tour.

  • This tour was very enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone who likes to shop for clothing. While I only bought a sweater one of the 4 ladies on the tour was a cute little blonde who looked good in everything. So it was fun judging what she tried on.
