Marcus gave us a fun and informative solid packed two hours of Jewish history and culture on the Lower East Side. His tour was not only very educational, but his personality friendly, engaging and extremely hilarious which was really great for the teens and parents of our group. I would highly recommend using The Levy's with Marcus as a tour... More

The tour of Brooklyn was not only ridiculously entertaining (and the pizza yum) but it was also very enlightening and informative. I absolutely adore Matt and recommend a tour lead by him anywhere in NYC. Believe that you will have the time of your life during this experience because you will! I trust him with my closest friends and clients.... More

When my family decided to go to NYC for a day while visiting my family in Pennsylvania from Florida, we started researching how to get around NYC to see the sights we wanted to see. Being the frugal one (alright - cheap), I started looking at the Hop On/Hop Off bus system. My husband, on the other hand, found Levys'... More

From my first email with Matt I knew we were in for a very unique touring experience. What we wanted to see didn't quite fit into the tours listed but Matt was more than happy to customise our tours to suit us. Our first day was my daughter and I touring the highlights of this crazy city with Matt! Fantastic... More

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.
