Holiday Cheer

Our guide was very knowledgeable. It was hard to hear the guide with a large bus group walking outside. Consider having participants tune in to an assigned radio station to hear the guide.

Everything was just perfect. We had an enjoyable time and we will recommend this tour to our friends. Thank you, Josephine Madden
Star lights, Sky bright!

Better in person than viewing the pictures. Pictures are nice but does not give the real in-person view. It was fantastic!
Value for money.
Markos_M, Jan 2024
Great views of the houses at Dyker heights. Alan our guide was very good and helpful. The bus was not in a very good condition, as it was very old and noisy.

Very disappointed with this tour. I was so looking forward to it but it was rushed from start to finish. Far too many people, no time to take in our surroundings and have proper photo opportunities and actually enjoy what we were looking at. Not physically possible to walk, take photos, and keep an eye on where our guide was. It was a relief to get back on the bus!
Dyker Heights
Joseph_D, Dec 2023
The experience of seeing the home Christmas decorations at Dyker Heights. Our guide could have been better prepared as it was difficult to follow her amongst the hundreds of visitors at Dyker especially at night. Guide must have been new and could have done a better job as a guide.
Linda_A, Dec 2023
It was very nice trip. We loved the lights and seeing some of the city lights. Bus was kept warm, being from Arizona that was a big factor.

Enjoyable and comfortable ride. Trip was organized. Great experience with excellent guide and driver
RicardoA_A, Dec 2023
Not worth the money… Very disappointing, felt forced, we wasted our time. Very commercialized. Getting there takes one hour the actual walking tour takes approximately another hour.
sngittins, Dec 2023
Didn’t love it. The best part was that we were dropped home outside our hotel. Very underwhelming, had to wait 40min on the bus for other tour guests as they could not follow instructions. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
Cool lights. But we could...
Leah_L, Dec 2023
Cool lights. But we could see this at home. Mo was our tour guide and was knowledgeable. The bus takes you by many landmarks and he knew the history of them which was interesting.
Fabulous trip
Melody_R, Dec 2023
Excellent trip. Good communication. Bus was early so got a quick start. Excellent guide and driver. All ran on time with extras to view the skyline
Great Christmas lights
Kathy_A, Dec 2023
Paz took great care to keep track of all of us. He explained things well, and took us on a walking tour of some of the most impressive lighting displays. We loved it!
An awesome holiday experience!
Barbara_C, Dec 2023
Of course the beautiful light displays. But also the guide took special care of the group. The bus driver was also engaging. It was an awesome experience. We will do it again.
Missed Out
Gina_W, Dec 2023
Sadly I am unable to review the tour. Our flight from Ireland was delayed and we were unable to make it to the meeting place on time. I have been trying to contact the tour operator to see if we can use our vouchers today. We were very excited to see Dyker Heights, so I hope we are able to work something out.
Renee_M, Dec 2023
Had a wonderful time. Would definitely recommend! A must see for the Christmas Holiday. Tour guide vey informative.
Great tour
zj4q49q79m, Dec 2023
We took the Spanish tour. Our tour guide was really friendly, give us a lot of historical information about NY (that was a plus). Dyker heights is a great place to visit on Christmas, make sure you do it either this guys. Our guide took us to Dumbo so we can take great pictures of Manhattan at night, which is incredible… (another plus).
Beautiful lights and wonderful decorations!
Sylvia_S, Dec 2023
The entire trip was nice. The neighborhood is very pretty and the decorated houses are amazing looking. The stop by the bay to see the Brooklyn bridge at night was breathtaking.
Top Notch Event
Suzanne_T, Dec 2023
Really recommend this event it was the highlight of our trip. You cannot fully experience how fantastic it is through watching videos you need to see it in person
Christmas Lights tour
Willis_S, Dec 2023
The homes that were decorated were very nice. We like all of the different architect in the neighborhood, but we were disappointed that so many homes weren't decorated.
