This is the third time my teenage daughter and I have taken this tour. The showrooms included are varied and offer great deals on clothing and accessories. The guides are knowledgeable and fun.

Good Showroom Shopping

I took my daughter who is a fashion student on the tour thinking there would be historical and current information about the Garment District - how it's used by designers, etc. The tour is strictly access to several showrooms for sample sales. While I did enjoy the shopping, for the price of the tour, it would have been nice to get some education on the Garment District and how the showrooms work in the design and marketing process.

Our tour guide was Melanie, she was energetic and happy to be there. We saw designers, workers and studios and was very intrigued. I took 2 teen girls with me and they both loved it as much as I did. Melanie was so great and informative, she helped with future shopping and made sure everyone had a chance to look and try things on. I would recommend this excursion to anybody that enjoys shopping, put on your walking shoes and keep up though. It is fast paced and informative. You find out where to go to get the perfect dress or shoes and where the best accessories are, as well as a way to make garments yourself. It is in the garment district and so much fun to do, a must for Mother/daughter trips as well as girls weekend..not the most fun for most men, geared for women mostly. The designers are soooooo helpful, very funny, but still respectful of everyone. It was a pleasure and I just want to make sure Melanie has a great review. I will be doing this again on my next visit to New York. Thank you for the experience.

Will do this again.

Did this on Wed March 12th, and we definitely do it again next time I am in New York. Not only was it so interesting to meet the people behind the racks, but also to be able to peek around and see some of the factories. And you can't beat the whole sale prices! Only recommendation is that you come with cash.

This first tour we went on I was with my husband. As a man he enjoyed himself. Our tour guide was awesome and meeting the designers was WOW!!!! The prices at which they sold their items were great, very resonable and quite fashionable. This is tour I highly recommend and will for sure book again.

Places visited did not offer anything I couldn't find at a better price on my own and that includes a good dept store sale

Garment District Tour

Love this tour, even in the pouring rain I did not want to miss a minute of it. It was nice to be able to meet a designer and hear her talk about her work. Got to see some spring lines that will be coming out soon. Got to do some great shopping and was even giving a list with addresses to other sample sales in the area so I could go out on my own after the tour. Really recomend this to anyone who loves fashion as prices were much better then the department stores, as I found out later. I would take this tour again and wish I had bought more things while I was there.

Guide was great but not much variety
Fri, Nov 8, 13   10:00 AM Suestep Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Jess was great but I think I was expecting more variety. The purses were ok, I bought one as a gift. I also bought a pretty scarf. I did try on one dress that didn't fit and there were no other sizes. The fur store would have been great if there was also a variety with some fake fur. In today's day and age, this really surprised me. I do not wear real fur. I never had any luck with sample sales but was hoping that you would have better ones. Sadly, I was disappointed with these sample sales as well. When I read reviews on Trip Advisor, they were great. They mentioned costume jewelry, cosmetics, accessories and pretty much something for everyone. The reviews specifically mentioned the garment district tour

A walk down the runway to remember
Wed, Nov 6, 13   10:00 AM DiMcBride Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Other
An enjoyable 3 hours. Visited a variety of showrooms -at times felt under pressure to buy when there was nothing that I wanted to buy. - not all places to my taste. Guide was very pleasant. Since we are in the Garment District my disappointment was that we were told very little historical information. That would certainly have made the tour much more interesting as the garment trade is of historical significance in this area. Maybe the tour could be an hour longer to accommodate this.
