Lovely Christmas Tour

We really enjoyed this tour. We left at 4pm and called at Bay Ridge first. The streets there were empty there so you got a great view of all the lights. Dyker Heights was quite busy so I'm glad we did the earlier tour. The lights are brilliant and it makes you feel very Christmassy! Nice stop off on the way back to take photographs of the NY skyline.
Gréât tour- saw the lights- went Jan 2: might be a good time to do it!

This is a good tour. We had three stops- two at Christmas lights in neighborhoods and one stop in DUMBO to see nyc views. Great guide- he was conscientious and knowledgeable. I’d love a bit longer at Dyker Heights- maybe a map to show where we could wander. But overall great trip!
Excellent value for the money!

The trip was very nice. My only suggestion would be to stop under the bridge a little longer than 10 minutes for coffee, drink, or something. Or maybe even serve some water on the bus.

Amazing time and views. Allan was very good and the info he gave about all the sights on the way made the trip alone worth it.

Had a great time with my son seeing the lights in Dyker Heights. Antonio did a wonderful job telling us the history of areas we passed and stopped at. I would recommend everyone to do the tour. It was a lot of fun! The houses were over the top decorated. Something I've never seen before.
Spectacular Light Show

We took this tour on our last night in New York City. Our tour guide was Jorge. He was funny and informative. I would highly recommend this tour when in New York. The homes are gorgeous and the lighting displays are out of this world. It was really a treat! The views of the New York skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge were superb. Highly enjoyed this tour.
