Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the tour? -- This is a 3 hour program that is ALL about shopping. There will be about 10 minutes total of walking. The rest is shopping. Most showrooms are not open to the public. Your guide will let you know which stops you can return to shop on your own after the tour.

How many people are on the tour? -- Group size varies from tour to tour, but the maximum group size is 12 guests. Your guides aim for a high level of personalized attention and are trained to provide a significant amount of guide/guest interaction to insure the best possible tour and shopping experience.

Is transportation included? -- This is a walking tour so there is no transportation. This tour requires a significant amount of walking, so please wear comfortable shoes and dress weather appropriately.

Where will we be shopping? -- You will be shopping in primarily Private Appointment Showrooms (not open to the public) for women's apparel and accessories at Wholesale. Occasionally, your guides add in a worthwhile Sample Sale.

What is a sample sale? -- Originally, sample sales existed so designers could make money from selling production samples or samples from their current collections that were displayed for buyers to preview and order. Today, sample sales are primarily overstock/overrun sales at which designers sell items from previous or current seasons that they did not sell to stores. Sample sales usually carry a range of sizes. Sample sales tend to run seasonally with winter clothing sold in November and December and spring items sold in April and May.

What type of payment is accepted at sample sales and showrooms? -- Many sample sales and showrooms accept credit cards but it is always a good idea to bring cash as many sales either have a minimum charge amount or give a better discount for cash purchases.

How much time do we spend shopping? -- Because you do not want to miss out on any bargains, about 2/3 of the tour time will be spent shopping. Certain showrooms are not open to the public. Your guide will let you know which stops you can return to shop on your own after the tour.

Why take this tour in November & December? -- This is Prime Sample Sale Season for holiday shopping!

Why take this tour in winter? -- Showrooms will offer deep discounts on Winter merchandise. Besides, it's cold out. What's better to do than shop?!

Are there any places to stop and rest along the route? -- Plan for an active afternoon because there is a lot to see and you will be on the move! A number of your shopping stops have seating, so you can take a break while the rest of the group shops.

Is lunch included? -- Lunch is not included. There are some delis and shops in the neighborhood to buy a snack. It is suggested that you eat a hearty breakfast to maximize your shopping time!

Should I tip my guide? -- It is a customary and very appreciated gesture to tip your tour guide at the end of the tour.

Minimum age is 18. Tour does not include hotel pick up. You will meet your guide on West 38th Street in the Garment District (details on E-Ticket). Tours run rain or shine. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
