For a bit more whimsy on your tour, The Levys’ Unique New York! offers a lighter look at the city’s history and landmarks. The tours are all custom planned, depending on the size and needs of the group; travel is by foot, subway, and private vehicle. A few of their most popular tours include the “Bohemians and Beat Poets of Greenwich Village: Sightseeing Literature Tours,” and “Hey Ho! Let’s Go! Punk Rock on the Bowery Pub Crawl and Walking Tour,” which contrasts the culture of the 1850s with the punk rockers of the 1970s. The group is Brooklyn based, and they are extremely knowledgeable about their home borough; tours of Coney Island and another called “Edible Ethnic Brooklyn Eats” are just a few that feature Brooklyn.
