The tour was great. Our tour guide made sure everyone was accounted for before we began the tour (the bus left on time). The guide was very informative and spoke throughout the tour showing us building structures and the history of NY. We even got to see the Brooklyn bridge on our last stop. We saw the lights and they were amazing to see. I highly recommend this tour.

My family had a wonderful time on the Christmas lights tour. The tour guide was awesome. While traveling on the bus, he pointed out various buildings and gave background information about the city. The light displays were amazing and it is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
