“Levys’ – you simply are the best! Our groups loved their tours and enjoyed the tour guides so much I personally heard from each director and most of the parents with each group – they loved their experience and your staff who made this possible. I wanted to write a quick note and say – on behalf of Deborah, Kirk, Debra and our entire staff at World Projects – we appreciate your dedication, extra effort, flexibility and support – for our musical ensembles. Thank you so very much!”

For Jonathan Turer:

“Our tour guide for Saturday morning was extremely emotional and spoke very profoundly of 911 and John Lennon and all the other NYC sites that I’m sure he holds dear as a native New Yorker. He was excellent! Any group that has him is lucky!”
Dave FranzMississauga, Ontario

For Matt Apter:

“You’re awesome. And also incredibly corny, but awesome! Letting you know that you’re the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Only tour guide ever, but still.”

For Matthew Baker:

“Not only is Matt Baker one of the most knowledgeable guides in the city of New York, his energy, sense of humor and fun spirit really captured and held our group’s attention for hours! They continued to talk about the city tour and how great Matt was the entire trip. We love Matt Baker!!

”
Annie Fitzsimmons–Scottsdale, AZ

“My boyfriend and I took an 8 hour tour with Matthew Baker and it was great. Matthew was so knowledgeable and friendly and left the tour wide open so we could do what we wanted to do. Neither of us had ever been to New York before so the tour was the perfect way to see the city and the perfect way to get all of our questions answered. Thank you so much for such a great tour! We will recommend Matthew and Levys’ Unique NY to anybody we talk to that is going to NY!”
Libby Bartscht–Thousand Oaks, CA

For Ibrahima Diallo:

The guides we had with Clover Garden in mid-April were extraordinary!  I had Ibrahima for both tours, and everyone on the coach was so impressed.  The first day he had mainly adults, and the second day he had half students and half adults; regardless of the group, he provided interesting material for the entire time he was with the group. Thank you for providing 8 hours of wonderful introduction to the New York area through Ibrahima, Jonathan, and Traci Marlowe.
Melissa Strickland–Unique Tours & Travel, Lubbock, TX

We had a extraordinaire stay in NYC. Ibrahima Diallo was appreciated by everyone, by his dynamism, his humor, his enthusiasm and Youth; He has adapted his speech to our young audience and approach the city, its neighborhoods was all the more interesting. Really an excellent guide. (Translated from the French) Frederick Roszak–College Ostrevant, Lilles, France

For Marcus Hillman:

I took a group of students (and a few others) from Texas to NYC over the long Memorial Day weekend. Marcus Hllman was our guide and I simply wanted to tell you what a great job he did.  He gave a very thorough tour but it was not “overload.”  in addition, we had a grandmother along and it was difficult for her to walk.  He was very considerate of her and made a point of encouraging and supporting her.  I don’t think we could have had a better guide. Thanks for providing us with such an excellent guide.
Marianne B. Woods – Assoc. Prof of Art History, U of TX of the Permian Basin
