Self Directed Tours

Self-Directed/Self-Guided Itineraries

Sometimes you just want to go at it alone, at your own time and pace

Shop Gotham offers several Self Directed itineraries, which map out a half day itinerary (or longer if you want to be more leisurely) so that you can set off to explore on your own. For a city which changes in a NY minute, this is the uber Cost and Time Efficient program.

For Shopping itineraries
, the emphasis is on shops and brands you cannot find in your mall, so as to allow guests to bring a little NYC home in their bags. Programs are sent via email and include: the written itinerary in geographic order, relevant details about each shop, a couple of special landmarks to take note  of as you are walking And a simple accompanying  map.

Some itineraries are for a specific geographic area, some are by category and may include several areas of Manhattan.  Soho and Nolita is a “customized” program  for each guest. Whichever you choose, they will always have up-to-date information.

The Downtown Food Sampling itinerary is especially terrific for families and  groups of 2-6. We recommend this as a Daytime program and to give yourself(ves) an entire day to enjoy the food and the neighborhoods. Just like the shopping itineraries, you will receive a written itinerary with photos to help the ease of locating  each spot, some landmarks to see and an accompanying map.

A minimum of 10 days advance request is suggested. Itineraries are sent via email.
