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

Even though we often visit New York City and thought we knew the City's special attractions, being driven through Manhattan has never been as exciting, fascinating and comfortable. I'm generally a restless guy, but I didn't want the tour to end.

I am from Jeff Davis Elementary School in Hazlehurst, Ga. Every year in June, we travel to New York City with a group of 5th graders and their parents. 2015 will be our 12th year.

I booked the Military History Tour on the occasion of my son's high school graduation. I researched the private tours through the internet for a while. I chose The Levys' Unique New York because they are the father and sons company! As a parent I felt I could trust them more than any other company. Matt assisted me to make... More

Yoko, you have to believe us, that when we get a request for a Military History tour, for Mark, its hardly working!! He LOVES to talk about Military History (unfortunately for some of us who arent that interested.) So it was MORE than HIS PLEASURE to be your tour guide and expound for hours on NYC's obscure history. Many thanks! More

Levy's Unique Ne York has handled three of my group's tours to NYC. The tours are extremely informative and take you to see precisely what types of things you ask for. They know who can handle large groups for meals and the food is top notch. Thanks, Matt, great job.

Four of us wanted to do something fun between cruise ship disembarkation and airport, but what to do with the luggage? And all the options we could find revolved around heading back into Manhattan. Been there, done that, hated the traffic. Matt Levy organized the perfect day for us: we were collected at the Brooklyn cruise terminal by Ray, a... More

We found these guys via a Google search two days prior to our trip to NYC. We had a layover on our way to Europe. Mark took us on an amazing tour of the city. I would highly recommend these guys.

Thanks Murdy! You can imagine we dont get many layover tour requests, with the tour time inbetween 9pm and 9am, but as everything we do is customized and personalized, it was our pleasure to show you NYC after hours. Next time, come in the daylight! More

My boyfriend and I went on private, 2 hour walking tour on 7 October 2014 with Matt Levy and it was the best afternoon experience. The tour was a special task because it was for a native New Yorker (boyfriend) with a focus on art deco architecture in Manhattan. Matt's energy was unstoppable! Not only did he relay the history...

Kibra, needless to say, it is without hesitation to say that although we may be the best tour guides in NYC, you rank high on our best clients in NYC. Why? Because YOU (and your BF) are funny, smart, engaged, engaging, and opt to go Highbrow (instead of Low.) So thank YOU for making our Art Deco Architecture tour better... More
