A beautiful display and a delightful tour guide. We had a 6:00 departure time but by mid January it is not dark enough to start at 6:00. So we waited another half hour. They need to make the first start scheduled for 6:30 and run on time. Well worth the time and money.

There were 8 of us - including two teens, two young boys (7 and 9) and a 21 year old. We all enjoyed it very much. Will definitely do it again - wish i would have gone earlier in the season since the singing was Christmas carols ( but I knew that in advance). Well done tour and a beautiful sight to see.

We had a great first experience during our Noghts of Loghts trolley ride. Our driver, Cindra Ella, had a great personality, great sense of humor, and kept us entertained during the entire ride. She was a great hostess and made us all feel welcomed and enjoyed entertaining us. We would highly recommend this experience to others.
