Full description
After pickup from Manhattan, the tour bus will take you through the Battery Tunnel 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 between each other to put up spectacular 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 strolling around the neighborhood, you will get back on the bus to head to the Brooklyn Bridge. There you will enjoy the different viewpoints, with more free time to take pictures of the spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. Finally, you will return to Manhattan where the tour ends. You can feel free to ask your guide for local tips and recommendations on what else to see and do during your visit to New York City.

      The tour was fantastic. Both our guide and our driver were excellent. Especially as we had my daughter in a wheelchair and they couldn't do enough to make sure that she enjoyed the experience as much as everyone else. Very much appreciated. Thank you

      We arrived in good time for the tour, unlike 2 people!!. We left at 7pm, and a few minutes later we then pulled over to wait for the two late people to catch us up in a taxi, we waited 25mins..Nothing will be missed said Fred the guide. Luxury mini bus, said the tour, a mini seating 40 to 42 people, not a mini bus!! Fred kept us informed on our journey ey out to Dyker heights, however once we arrived I felt we rushed along,(possible because we had to wait for the 2 late people!) and it was impossible for such a large group to all be within hearing distance of anything Fred had to say. The lights are beautiful, and it's all very American christmas. We then journeyed back into Manhattan with the fastest toilet stop ever, 10 mins, most of the coach were woman, 2 toilets, use the mens said Fred!!...and hurry back to the coach said Fred!! The view of the skyline at night is magnificent.
