My son and I spent 4 days in NYC just before Christmas. We wanted something other then the major Manhattan sites and we wanted it customized to our interests (and our fast walking pace!) Levy's delivered big time! After a great call with Matt (one of the owners) we decided on a custom tour of Brooklyn. We met on the... More

Not quite, but it was miserably cold and our Guide, Gideon, maintained his enthusiasm, passion and good humour throughout. He was an oracle on NY and left us after four hours as NY neophytes. He answered every one of our arcane questions with an easy, knowledgable grace and left us dying to know more about this extraordinary place. He was... More

Mike was the guide for our fantastic tour of the Brooklyn bridge and DUMBO. He was very knowledgeable and an enthusiastic teacher. My husband and I both felt that the tour was a very good value. We will use Levy’s again when we visit Ellis Island on our next adventure to NYC. Thank you for a great tour.

Seeing the street art and graffiti in Manhattan really helped shape my view of the urban art scene. The guide is very well informed and is very interesting, and most of all has an awesome mustache. Every place he took us was super hipstery, yet also open and accessible to everyone and if you like that, you should definitely take... More

From the window displays of Barneys and Saks to the lights across NYC, Kirsten guided us to feel the magic of an NYC Christmas lights tour. NYC came alive with the stories and the fables Kirsten shared with our group of 3 generations. A must for visitors to NYC during the Christmas season.

They organised a great last minute tour for my mother, who does not walk well, my son of 17 and me....all three generations loved Gary's explanations and great background about bloomendale and `harlem, named after the dutch cities of Haarlem and bloemendaal where we come from. If it culture , economics or history gary knows it all. Highly recommendable

I booked this tour from the UK for my parents as a birthday present. The booking process was excellent, with very helpful and friendly emails back and forth, easy payment process, and booked for a very reasonable price, given this was a semi-tailor made private tour. Of the tour itself my Mum had this to say: "The tour was perfect... More

I had the pleasure of being with a group of high school students when they had Levy's lead them on a tour of New York. Gideon was our guide and he related well to the students as well as the adults. His great sense of humor was only equaled by his knowledge of the city. We took a three hour... More
