My 12 year old daughter and I enjoyed this tour very much. It was nice to be able to walk through the neighborhoods. The guide was great and informative while on the bus. The Brooklyn bridge stop at night was beautiful. Area for improvement: Wish guides/bus driver could accept tips using Google pay.

Everything went fine! We were looked after perfectly all round and seeing the Christmas houses was fantastic. The whole thing was rounded off by the stop at the Brooklyn Bridge. During the bus ride we were told a lot about New York and the respective sights that we passed. We are happy to recommend this great tour!

The meeting point was easy to find. It started on time. In the bus, who is sitting where is sorted out so that travelers do not have to sit separately. It's a relatively long drive to get there. About 1 hour. You learn a lot about Manhattan and New York while driving. Once at the lights, you have to line up, receive instructions, and then follow the guide. Or try to follow. It runs quite fast and you can't stop at the houses to look. At some houses it is so full that you are afraid of losing your group. The houses looked great. Unfortunately, some were already gone after Christmas. We were told that next year some houses will not be decorated like this, so we were lucky. It rained on our tour and you sometimes have to walk through muddy grass, which is not great. The stop at the Brooklyn Bridge was good. I had the feeling that the tour was shorter because of the rain. good trip
