An exciting day with an active woman!Reviewed by: Annette K, Denmark, September 2009
Our tour guide was an absolute joy! She was very knowledgeable of the area. We visited several showrooms that are not open to the public unless you are on this tour. We got to meet and buy a sample dress from Project Runway's, Kara Manx. There were several samples to choose from at each stop and came in many sizes. Most of the showrooms took cash, so stop by the ATM before venturing out. Our tour guide even gave us other tips about the city/places to eat and other shopping to be sure and do. This tour is well worth the money! It is a must if you are a bargain hunter or just love to shop. We will go on this tour again when we are in New York.Reviewed by: Amanda V, August 2009
This was very enjoyable. I also liked getting a list of other sample sales that day, so I could do a little more shopping on my own.Reviewed by: Jane G, May 2009
This tour took us to several designer showrooms and we were given the privilege of buying one of a kind designs for wholesale prices! Our guide was excellent and very energetic. She even helped us get tickets for "Hair" in the Park. Super tour and guide!Reviewed by: Craig P, Canada, August 2008

We had a wonderful guide to take us around the garment district. Full of ideas and excellent taste. We enjoyed her company. She is a keeper for your company, she is an asset.Reviewed by: Frances P, USA, February 2008
Can I give this tour five stars? How about ten? If you even remotely enjoy shopping, schedule your Garment Center Insider Shopping Tour NOW. This is a highly personalized, absolutely amazing insider peek into the garment district of NYC. You will not only see the cutting edge of fashion, you will also meet wonderful designers in their showrooms who take their creative passion and transform it into salable beauty on a daily basis. And best of all, plan on shopping along the entire tour. So many gorgeous and sumptuous choices, I walked away with an armload of shockingly affordable decadent pieces.
Your guide will be a licensed tour guide, stringent licensing test, with an insider knowledge of the ins and outs of the premier garment center of the US. I had a bit of an unusual experience as it was only me, the other four scheduled missed their plane, and the owner. It was truly a one-of-a-kind experience. I will definitely be back for more tours when I am back in the city. If you're in New York for even just a day, make sure to put this tour on your schedule.
The tour was tons of fun. Our guide was great. We actually bought several items on the trip and would recommend anyone thinking of doing this tour to definitely do it!!!Reviewed by: Cheryl K, USA, October 2007
