Full description

Your tour begins in Midtown Manhattan. From there you will head towards the western part of Manhattan along the Hudson River as you learn about its history. You will then cross the Battery Tunnel, which will take you directly to the borough of Brooklyn. Once you are in Brooklyn you'll head to the Dyker Heights district; an Italian-American neighborhood famous for its elaborate houses and gardens. Each year residents compete with each other to make out of the ordinary Christmas decorations, illuminations, and displays.

Your tour guide will tell you about the origin and history of this tradition, before giving you free time to walk the streets to admire and take pictures of the houses. Once you have finished the tour of the neighborhood, you will get back on the bus to go to the Brooklyn Bridge. There you will enjoy the different viewpoints, with more free time to take pictures of the spectacular views of Manhattan.

Finally, you will return to Times Square where the tour ends. You can feel free to ask your guide for recommendations on what else you can do to enjoy your visit to New York City.

The tour was great! Beautiful lights, two extra stops and great views of the bridge and skyline. The best part was Jorge, our tour guide. Such a charismatic guy, well-spoken, spoke in English and Spanish, and pointed out so many sights on the way. Played music for us, told great jokes, just a great time!

A must see when in New York City at Christmas time. The tour put us in a great Christmas mood and the tour guide Jorge was just great. You learned a lot about New York and the surrounding area and there was a story for almost every house :-) The lighting in the houses is just great - that surpasses any American Christmas film and cannot be reproduced in the pictures. You have to see it for real!

The tour was well-organized by the guide, Jorge. The bus was comfortable and the driver VERY good at navigating narrow streets. Jorge was quite knowledgeable about New York City, and very familiar with details of many of the most abundantly decorated homes. The decorations are amazing—you truly have to see them to believe them! The tour ends waterside next to the Brooklyn Bridge, with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.
