"Unique" is a perfect word to describe our tour. We had a wonderful time with Mark on our four hour private tour. He was great at finding aspects of the city that specificaly interested us (an architect and an engineer). There was no question he didn't know the answer to. Well worth our time and the price was excellent. He... More

My son and I spent the afternoon with Jonah "exploring" mid-town and the Brooklyn Bridge. Loved the stories from movie/TV highlights, to history to modern day Urban exploration. Rode bikes down 5th Avenue, (extreme sporting NYC style) and then across the Brooklyn Bridge. What a GREAT day for me and my 13 yr. old. THANKS JONAH!!

Gideon, Matt, and Jose Were all amazing with our High School Student Group. Fine sense of humor, excellent communicators, and maintain interested for several hours at a time with 30+ teenagers. Not an easy feat, I assure you. We took a Upper Manhattan Tour (Spanish Harlem) and Central Park with Jose on Friday. He was awesome. Then Matt took us... More

Fantastic, engaging and worth every penny! (or dollar should I say). I booked a 5 hour, private tour for 2 on a freezing cold day in March 2014 and despite the weather, Matt, our guide was fun, energetic, informative, extremely knowledgeable, and had a genuine passion for his city, priceless!. The tour was well organised, entertaining and ran efficiently. He... More

My colleague and I are writing an article on the changing food landscape in Brooklyn. We asked Matt to put together a food tour that highlighted the emerging foodie scene and he did a great job. Not only did he pick the perfect places to visit -- Shelskys Smoked Fish, By Brooklyn, Stinky Brooklyn Cheese Shop, Sahadi's, and Brooklyn Kitchen... More

I just returned from NYC where I hired Levy's Unique New York to provide a guided tour of the 911 Memorial. Mark Levy was our excellent guide. The memorial is powerful and dramatic; Levy's tour was informative, interesting and at times, surprising. I highly recommend using Levy's: no waiting in long lines, insightful perspectives, things you never knew... Contact mark@levysuniqueny.com... More

The people with me felt it was a very poor tour for $100 per person. Given the option to end early they (we as I went too) did. The comments were that for the money we paid, the food establishments should have known we were coming and had a sample ready for us and someone to talk to us from... More

Hi Tony, We're so sorry to hear that you had a less-than-stellar Brooklyn food tour experience with our guide. We understand that food tours are complicated endeavors that can be affected by many variables - day of week, time of day, busyness of the small, locally owned shops we visit, and tour guide-shop owner relationships. Also, its not easy pleasing... More

I'm 21 and took a private tour with my girlfriend (20) through Harlem and Upper Manhattan. It was an AMAZING experience. We spent 3 hours with Matt and walked through streets of Harlem and Washington Heights (where Manhattan actually has some hills!). We visited the Church of St. John the Divine and walked through rather non-touristic places. It was awesome!... More

Matt Levy and I wrote quite a few emails back an forth to ensure that the tour was planned to my perfection. Matt bent over backwards to make this experience unforgettable, he even bought a new outfit to impress these Alberta Oil Tycoons in my group. He approached the group with his energetic vibe and filled their heads with knowledge... More

Wheeww! What an incredibly fantastic tour. Our tour guide (or shall I say Art Director), Matt was passionate and informative. His love of Street Art is contagious! I was extremely impressed with his historical knowledge of the people and places that he guided us thru. Honestly one of the best tours I have ever been on, and I will tell... More
