My college-aged daughter and I enjoyed this behind-the-storefront tour. Our guide, Melanie, whisked us from place to place with enthisiasm and interest. She included a couple of extra stops that she thought we would like. The really high end clothes were out of our price range but it was still great to see them and others tried them on. We took advantage of great shopping deals and trending fashions at comparably midwestern prices. Very glad we did it!

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.
