Sometimes one just needs a little evidence. We thought these recent reviews from Trip Advisor and the Shop Gotham site might provide the fodder.

I had a wonderful time!
Garment Center Insider Shopping Tour (For Women)
Our group leader, Melanie, was charming. The other participants were from all over: Canada, California, Georgia, Florida, Australia, New Zealand . . . Everyone was friendly and chatty. At the places we visited the staff members were terrific. The items we viewed were wonderful, and value-priced. I would do this tour again. And again. And again. It’s a different experience each time. Next time I’d like to see shoes, and maybe even more accessories. I had a great time, and will be back.
Soho & Nolita tour *****Reviewed August 6, 2011
My daughter and I did this together–she loves to shop and I just love to spend time with her. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours together. She got to shop and I learned a lot of history about NY and Soho in particular. Our guide was the owner which was special–she knew all the “cool” places to shop but also read the people on the tour so well. Even though we were a group, she often pulled someone aside and directed them to a different store. We visited pricey and discount stores so everybody was happy. And it wasn’t just clothing–jewelry, kitch, kid’s gift shop, etc. Cool, trendy, and fun.
