Great gift idea ..shopping tour! – As a gift to my fiance, I signed up for a shopping tour with Chic Inspirations. My fiance had an absolute blast! These people know a lot of great places to shop, and take you into stores, sample sales and showrooms that you would NEVER be able to get in on your own (or even know about). Also, considering how much money you save on the clothes, the cost of the tour is a no brainer.
For all the guys out there, this makes a GREAT gift for your girlfriend, fiance, or wife who loves to shop. I actually joined the tour and had a good time myself, but you could just as easily catch a Yankees or Mets game while your significant other shops to her heart's content.
Great tour company, great tours of nyc – Myself, my mother, and my mother in law came up for a long weekend in October . Ages 30, 52, 57. Our tour guide was magnificent! She was fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and well organized. The tour pace was very do-able for all in our group. Great tips on where to go/ where you'll want to stay away. We did this tour and then on another day w/ another tour company and I regret that the timing didn't work out for us to take both tours with Chic NYC Shopping Tours. Chic NYC Shopping Tours was EXTREMELY well planned, organized, top-notch, experienced tour. I can't say the same for the "other" tour- it did not measure up. Thanks for the memories!
Awesome Tour!!! – I attended the Soho and Nolita Shoopping Tour during a vacation to NYC. This tour was a hilight of my vacation. The tour guide was informative without becoming dull or talking too much and entertaining without becoming "cheesy". A comfortable atmosphere was maintained through the trip as the tour guide presented information, provided insights to the area, and offered style advice. The tour guide also maintained a comfortable pace so that we neither felt rushed nor lingered in one store too long. In addition, I was impressed that the guide was able to tactfully redirect questions and "dawdlers" so that the entire group was able to see as many places as possible and truly benefit from the tour.
I can't wait to try all the other tours offered and will plan my next NYC vacation around doing so.
Things to do in NYC – We throughly enjoyed the Soho and Nolita Tour. This was such a fun thing to do in NYC. Our guide Sarah was wonderful. She knew the stores in the area as well as the history. Sarah set a comfortable pace and kept us entertained with the history and little known facts about the area as we walked from store to store. So much fun! Loved it and definitely recommend it!
WOW Great Tour NYC – We didn't know what to expect, but decided to check out the tour to learn more about an area of NY that we wanted to explore. The tour was EXCELLENT! Our guide, Sarah, was fabulous! She was so well spoken, knew so much about the area and the shops/architecture/history, etc.! Each stop was different yet interesting. We would highly recommend this tour to others hoping to learn more about the area and do some serious SHOPPING
Tour NYC with a personal stylist – Best NYC tour we ever did! This tour emcompasses sightseeing, learning about New York City and of course the best shops and shopping you can find. We had a really great time and definitely recommend.
a must-do tour – If you want to find the best places to shop, you gotta take the tour! Our guide was amazing! We weren't just given store info, but history and great places to eat (try the Prince Cafe on Prince street, we LOVED it). We even had serveral New Yorkers on the tour so they could be "in-the-know" on the newest-best places to shop. Our tour didn't even end at a store but with the Young Designer's Market - there were so many talented people, just waiting to be discovered. We bought from PASTE for my teenage son (boarder dude/dudette stuff) and Another Lady -for my teenage daughter. We made a few other purchases at Min.k , TE CASAN; Yellow Rat Bastard and Bloomingdale's. But you need to take the tour 'cause there are too many great places to mention. You'll be so glad you did!
Fun and interesting thing to do in New York City – We came across these tours when looking for fun things to do in New York City, decided to sign up and were so thrilled with the experience! Our tour guide Sarah was great! Total New Yorker -she does this on the weekend and is a stylist by trade. She styles photo shoots and dressed celebrities! We took the Soho and Nolita shopping tour and she showed us some really neat stores and even put an amazing outfit together for me! It was such a fun way to spend 3 hours, see the city and do something I can't wait to tell people back home about!
Good time and very helpful – My daughter and I were lucky that there were just the two of us on this tour so we were able to customise it for ourselves. We saw many parts of New York that we would not normally have found on our own, especially in the couple of days that we were there. Our guide took us to many different really cool and unique stores. We also visited a cool bazaar which housed many new clothes and jewellery designers showing their wares, we spent a short time there with our guide and even managed to find our own way back on our own and bought many unusual gifts - the tour is definitely worth going on.
Fun thing to do in New York – My mom, sis and I took this tour on a busy Saturday. Our tour guide (who is a stylist) was terrific. I wanted to find a cute date outfit and she showed me several things I would have never picked up myself. Even though we were a few minutes late, she was very accomodating to us. We visited several fun places and got some details and history of the neighborhood. She was always careful to help us get our bearings and helpful answering questions. We had a group of about 10, which was a great size. My only complaint would be that a few of the stores were not my taste, but you can't please everyone. Overall, the experience was great, the group was the perfect size, and we got a great overview of the area and some eclectic shops. I'd definitely do it again!
