we had so much fun our garment district tour, our tour guide was Natalie. She was very fun and knew a lot about the designers and the area. Such a great Mother/ daughter activity, we loved our purchases and the great deals!! would def do this tour again when we come back to NYC!

Informative and fun. Some studios were friendly and some were commercial but it was all fun. Make sure you have cash if you intend buying. Some studios only take cash not credit

Jackie led us around the garment district with a small group of women--visiting designers that are not open to the public. I wasn't sure about the tour prior to booking it, but after, it will be a staple on every trip to NYC. We found bargains of varying savings, some dirt cheap for great quality clothes, and some were significant savings on high end items. She also pointed out places we could return to on our own that were open to the public. Next year, I'm going on the tour and buying more!

super excited for this tour however it did not live up to what i thought it would be like...the sites we visted were lackluster the clothing underwhelming the prices ridiculous for what was being offered...overall there was nothing unique or different to what could be seen in a department stores and the deals were okay not great...this entire tour needs a revamp felt very dated and old....

I recently took my 16 year old niece on this tour, thinking it would be fun to do, just us girls. Was it ever! Christina was lovely and there is no way I would ever, ever have a clue where to go or shop or get insider deals the way Christina did. It's completely worth it! We ended up buying a few things. We spent less than $400 and took home SO much stuff. There's no pressure whatsoever to buy - if you find something you like, you buy, if you don't, no worries. I'm definitely going to take the Soho tour next time I'm in town! I like nice clothes, but am in no way prepared to pay 5th Avenue prices - this tour is like a high end garage sale at bargain prices. Thanks Christina! We'll see you again soon, for sure!

My husband and I both enjoyed this tour. Jacque, our guide, was so sweet, and she made the tour very exciting by sharing details about the area and the designers! I loved this tour so much that I will book it again when I return to NYC!

My Daughter and I went on the Garment District Tour. Natalie was our guide, We had a great time. We were able to speak and meet 2 of the Designers, each shop we found fun and new items, the tour offered a mixture of accessories, clothing and purses. Also variety of styles. Bring your cash you won't want to miss the great deals!!!I Highly recommend this tour. Sign up was easy, location easy to find, Natalie our guide was the best!

This is my second Garment District tour with your company. My friends and I are so happy with our purchases. I heard several of them say that they were "very excited" about what they bought and for such deals. Our tour guide was fabulous. I wish I could remember her name. She is a brunette, and wore a cute, red, knitted, flower hair clip. Give her a raise because you need to keep her on your staff. The only criticism I have is that 3 out of 6 places we visited were the same as the last time I went on the tour 2 years ago. Oh well. I love orYany bags and I've been twice now! I know I'll be back next year. I love this tour.

Worth the shot at great designer deals

We did this last week and found a handful of spectacular, super well-made, designer items at highly discounted prices. I honestly think this will be hit or miss, but if you love to shop and have 3 hours to take the chance, give it a try. The clothing stores we went to had a wealth of what I'd call sizes 4-6 and a handful of options outside that range.

Our tour, and I would bet all their tours, include a few accessory stops so that all size participants had an opportunity to buy.

While our tour guide really was simply someone who walked us from store to store, she gave no information about the Fashion district, no insight, no help shopping, etc, I would still do it again for the chance at quality, discounted, designer finds.

Next trip with my daughter, sisters, nieces, or girlfriends I will definitely do this again.
