Why choose a Seek New York shopping tour?

At Seek, we offer custom private tours of New York City, specializing in guided tours of the Garment District. As a small company, we have plenty of time to customize private tour itineraries and to work one-on-one with guests to make sure they're choosing the right tour for their group. So, while you might find a bargain-priced tour elsewhere, the personal attention you'll receive from a Seek guide is sure to set our New York shopping tours apart from the crowd.

Why Choose a Seek Tour?
Well, there are lots of reasons! First, a small group tour of NYC provides ample time for the tour guide to answer questions. It also allows tour participants the chance to request specific places they'd like to visit, and makes it easier for everyone to see and hear the guide. Limiting group size also allows for access to small spaces, including tiny shops and NYC boutiques that aren't set up to accommodate crowds. Plus, it ensures that the stylist/guide can offer shopping suggestions on clothing, accessory, and fabric-oriented tours.

Since we design our
private New York City tours with the specific customer in mind, we are often able to accommodate special requests (plus-size shopping, wheelchair accessibility, pet-friendly stores, etc.) much more easily than companies who only offer generic "mass group" tours.


What If My School or Camp Group Includes More Than Ten People?
School field trips, day camps, fashion clubs, Girl Scout troops, and other groups can take advantage of our
special educational tours of the Garment District. One- and two-hour tours are available, with pricing starting at just $250/group. Large group tours are capped at approximately fifteen people per tour; very large parties are encouraged to break into smaller groups and schedule several tours over the course of their visit.

What's So Special About Your Guides?
At Seek, every tour is led by a licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide who is also a working member of the fashion and/or entertainment community. Our New York shopping tours and NYC fashion history tours are led by professional costume designers, fashion designers, and wardrobe stylists who have extensive knowledge of New York City's many stores and shopping resources, from big department stores to little "only in NYC" shops.
