Thank you for making a rainy day wonderful! From the first time I contacted Levy's they were wonderful. They were booked up for the day I wanted to go out with our family however Jonah was kind enough to make time for us. The day was slated to rain all day and Jonah communicated with us on our wants for the day even though it was raining. He tailored the whole day for what we wanted and changed up plans to accommodate the wet conditions.

We hired Jonah for a 7 hour tour and really were able to see a lot of what we wanted. There were five of us, including our son who was 12. Jonah engaged everyone with his stories and knowledge of New York.

If you are looking for a tour definitely look no further. Call them! We will definitely call again the next time we are in New York.

Thank you so much Jonah for the great day!

If you are looking for a tour of NYC and want the nitty gritty coming straight from born & bred New Yorkers...STOP looking! The small Levy family business has put together one heck of a big punch when touring New York City. If you have the opportunity, have one of the Levy guides take you around the city, where you want to go. Whether its a pre-set agenda or one you provide, they know their stuff and provide the scoop that only locals would know with just the right backstory. There is a real passion for what they do and the city that they represent. We had Matt Levy take just us around for 4 hours. Great pace, with opportunities for downtime to sit and chat, maybe get a spring roll in Chinatown or a cannolli in Little Italy. Also, Matt knows New York City architecture and knows his facts and figures! The use of the iPad to show historic pictures of how the Brooklyn Bridge was built, the characters of Five Points, what Central Park looked like with only The Dakota built or images of what you should know about the 9/11 Memorial...is something you won't find with any other tour group. One last point, compared with what other tour companies charge for a 4 hour tour with just two people, you WILL NOT find a better deal or more value with anyone else! Next time we are back in NYC we are going to take the Levy graffiti tour and maybe the Starring New York tour.

If you've been to NYC and done all the typical touristy stuff this tour is for you. Perfect for adults, teens and tweens, the graffiti tour shows the gritty side of the city in an interesting and entertaining way. Matt is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. After this private tour our family looks at the city and street art in a whole new way.

Levy's Unique New York Tours provide the most informative and comprehensive tours of not only NYC people are familiar with, but indeed the unique side of it. We have done 4 tours with them, which have all been perfect. On this visit in July 2012 we did "The Brooklyn by Car" (with Mark) and "New York Graffiti" (with Matt) tours. Both tours were excellent! Plenty of information and fun delivered on both. For something different I cannot recommend highly enough the Graffiti (street art) tour - certainly provides a different view of the city and ensures that you take in everything around you, rather than just breeze through the streets. You don't need to be an expert or anything on Street Art, simply an interest in the streetscape of this captivating city and it's neighbourhoods.
Both Mark and Matt were brilliant and tailor the tour to your interests and ensure that you get the best out of your time with them.
Whenever in NYC we'll be sure to do more tours with Levy's Unique New York Tours (aim to do all their tours in fact) as they simply provide the best possible way to ensure you get all there is to know about the city and its "uniqueness".

My wife and I have been to the city many times but took our two daughters, ages 8 and 10, for the first time. We booked a Manhattan walking tour with Levys on the recommendation of a relative and it was great!

Jonah met us right on time, was prepared, very engaging and extremely knowledgeable. He had a basic schedule in mind, with stops built in to warm up and get snacks, and he let us adjust on the fly and kept the kids interested and entertained throughout.

We had a great morning, at a reasonable price, and all learned some new things about New York City.

I doubt you could go wrong with Levys Unique NY, they have it figured out!
