Booking a Seek NYC tour was one of the best things I did on a recent trip to New York. We did the Garment District Shopping Tour...The tour itself is worth it - go ahead and book if you are on the fence wondering what you might get out of it or what you might learn or see...The subject matter is a pleasant mix of history of buildings and the development of the industry in the area, current pop-culture references, and all those insider-facts and personal stories that you can only get from an experience like this one.
Thank you for the wonderful tour - you are such an excellent guide - your experience, professionalism and personality are great gifts...I have visited NYC so many times, but your tour is one of the highlights ever.
