Seek’s NYC shopping tours provide a unique perspective on the shopping and fashion in New York City. Led by a professional designer and licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide, Seek tours combine aspects of design, shopping, fashion history, sightseeing, and more.
Beginning April 1, Seek will offer a selection of affordable small group public tours, including:
Garment District Tour
An introduction to the New York City Garment District. Includes fashion landmarks, history of the garment and retail industries, popular TV locations, famous fashion design schools, and more. Ideal for fashion or costume design students, aspiring designers, fashion history buffs, and anyone interested in the inner workings of the fashion industry. Tour customers receive exclusive discounts at neighborhood fabric stores, trim stores, and restaurants. $39/person.
Fabric & Trim Shopping Tour
A tour designed for those who sew, craft, quilt, or just love fabrics! Tour focuses on hands-on shopping rather than history or sightseeing, and covers a variety of fabric, ribbon, trim, notion, and sewing supply stores. Depending on group makeup, tour may also include things like beads, jewelry findings, patterns, yarn, or sewing-related books. Tour customers receive exclusive discounts at neighborhood fabric stores, trim stores, and restaurants. $46/person.
NYC Boutiques Shopping Tour
A New York City shopping tour for women (and older teens) who are interested in shopping for clothing and accessories in one of the city’s most picturesque and fashionable residential neighborhoods, the Upper West Side.

Fifth Avenue Department Store History Tour
Learn about the evolution of fashion along Fifth Avenue and the 34th Street shopping district, from chic residential neighborhood to garment manufacturing to the heyday of the great New York City department store. Includes the histories of Macy’s, Saks, and many other present-day department stores, along with long-gone retailers like Best & Company and Bonwit Teller. Ideal for fashion history buffs and anyone with an interest in New York City history. $36/person.
Public New York City shopping tours and fashion history tours are affordable group excursions which are open to the general public. Most public tours are capped at eight (8) people to guarantee a personal experience for each guest. Tickets must be purchased online in advance of the tour.
