Our tween daughter has a number of events coming up and needed some party dresses. We wanted something original but also dresses that were reasonably priced. Amalya found us some lovely shops on the UWS that fit the bill. We ended up purchasing four dresses. Amalya was great with our daughter - friendly, personable and fun. She connected right away....

As a birthday gift to my wife who is a seamstress and designer we flew to New York and took a private garment district tour with Liz from Seek tours. It is not an exaggeration to say that this tour and guide are the best! We spent three hours learning the history of New York from the fashion industry perspective.... More

After a conciuos review of many shopping tours companies, I decid to book a 2 hours tour with SEEK to have an overview of the Garment district. I was focused in meeting providers and shops that can be useful for my entrepreneurship. I asked for Liz, since she speaks perfect Spanish, and got the idea immediately. She prepared a concentrated... More

My teen daughter is planning to study fashion in college a few years from now. She asked to go to NYC and take a preliminary look at some schools and the Fashion District. I guessed that a Fashion District tour would be a good start - oh boy, I can't imagine how we would have seen and done all that... More

Liz from Seek New York illuminated the Garment District with historical significance, architectural facts and the current state of the many facets of the business of Fashion. From start to finish, Liz was excellent and a seasoned Designer in the area. Have your questions ready because she can answer them all!

I recently took my 11 year old daughter on an impromptu weekend trip to New York. I wanted something different for the two of us to enjoy together, and since these days she's very into clothing, shoes, hairstyles, etc, thought we'd try this. We ended up doing a 3 hour private tour, thinking we would learn a little history and... More

I used Liz as a 'personal shopper' to help me select and purchase a fall/winter wardrobe. It's something that I've been wanting to do for a long time as I'm terrible at selecting appropriate and flattering clothing for me. I filled out the online survey indicating my likes/dislikes/goals. Without ever meeting me, she selected the most perfect clothing that I... More

Our tour guide (Liz) was absolutely wonderful and was what essentially pushed this tour over the top for us. A warm and sunny disposition, knowledgeable about the Garment district who brings her personal experience from the fashion industry into the mix. Living close to the city I always love experiencing something different and for my 12 and 19 year old... More
