First day in NY, Matt Levy gave us an incredible walking/train tour of Manhattan. We couldn't have asked for a more delightful guide! We didn't stick out like a sore thumb like other group tours that we saw. We covered many sites that would have taken us much longer to get to. Matt gave us an overview of the city... More

Harlem--As much a mixing bowl of American culture as Lower Manhattan. We've always wanted to walk its streets with an indefatigable raconteur and aficionado and had the privilege and pleasure on Friday, Aug. 22, with the one-and-only Matt Baker! From the Apollo Theater to Central Park's Huddlestone Arch--with many stops between, including the New York Public Library's Schomburg Center, where... More

Matt, made our tour as personal and as special as we could ask for meeting us at the airport, posh transport, wow what a start, then into the big apple, to experience and not just to see the sights, to walk in the footsteps of many, to stare in wonder at the sky scrappers and so many of the sights...

I was drawn to LUNY's Tour company by virtue of their zany and engaging website. I then left them a voicemail last February...and the rest is history. My friend (of 30 years) and I were on a trip to NYC and then a cruise. We felt it would be fun to go on a tour of Brooklyn...my friend had not... More

We were recommended to Levy's Unique New York by a close friend who met Matt Levy and toured with him last year, she said it was "THE BEST TOUR EVER". Our family of 5 took her up on that as we had never been to New York before. Matt was unavailable but his brother Jonah was able to accommodate our... More
