A recent Sweet 16 Testimonial from TripAdvisor

5 of 5 starsReviewed March 25, 2014

Fabulous!! Spectacular!! Fun!! Appropriate!! My husband and I booked my daughter’s Sweet 16 Party with ShopGotham and Puglia’s Restaurant in Little Italy. We traveled by limousine to and fro the event from Central NJ. What a blast they had, including my self!!! I contacted Marla, the owner, who made all the arrangements. She was wonderful – answering all my questions, including recommending restaurants for after the shopping. She booked us with Tour Guide Melinda who was delightful, charming and quite knowledgeable of the SOHO/NOLITA area that we toured and shopped. My daughter and her friends had so much fun shopping, eating cupcakes at Georgetown Cupcakes, learning some history of the area and talking celebrity gossip. I would definitely recommend ShopGotham. I may even tour again soon with my lady friends!!!
