Full description

Embark on a holiday bus tour taking you through the residential neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights to see their brilliant Christmas decorations. Hop off your bus to see these homes up close on a guided walking tour.

Marvel at tree-lined streets and lit up private residences decorated for the holiday season. Learn about the neighborhoods' long-lasting holiday traditions from your local guide. Learn how it has been a tradition for many years to illuminate these homes with tens of thousands of lights and dazzling holiday scenes. Now, it has become a festive competition amongst the homeowners as to who has the "brightest" holiday cheer in the neighborhood. Then, walk through these neighborhoods on a guided tour, hearing the stories and wonderful lore behind this fun holiday event. You may even meet some of the homeowners and hear about how these neighborhoods come together in such a way to bring such holiday magic to New York City.

Alan was a great guide! He went out of his way to make an enjoyable experience for all of us. He was historian, guide, and photographer. Well worth the time and money! The lights were enjoyable and the fuss of figuring out how to get there was not an issue!

This was a fantastic trip, so glad we did it. The lights were great and made us feel in the mood for Christmas. Really well organised tour. We'll worth the money. Our guide Steve was brilliant, shared so much knowledge with us and made sure we were all kept safe.

We had a great time on this tour! Our driver Brandon was a wonderful driver and Antonio our tour guide gave us lots of history as we were traveling to Dryker Heights to see the homes. The neighborhood was beautiful and fun. Would highly recommend this tour.
