The lights on the homes in Dyker Heights were spectacular and even breathtaking. We enjoyed the tour of the homes very much. The only downside was that the tour ran over by almost an hour, causing us to miss a dinner reservation. There were 2 stops on the tour. The first stop was unspectacular and could have been eliminated in order to keep the tour on the scheduled time.

Excellent tour guides and driver that were genuine and explained everything...very relaxing...excellent balance...warm clean tour bus with bathroom...tour guides that would help in any way---help you cross the street--stop traffic if needed---walk with you during the house tour--a nice break from the hectic city--it was nice to let someone else lead the way after a long busy day--pick up and drop off is easy and friendly. Highly recommend. Yes you could drive to see the lights yourself--but it wouldn't be as relaxing--

The address where you meet wasn’t made clear. Dyker heights is nowhere near where this tour meets and because of that we missed our tour. They would not refund us and we traveled 2 hours and were out $354.

This was a great trip start to finish. What made it for me was not just the walk around Dyker heights but the nice drive down through Manhattan and then the stop at the Brooklyn Bridge on the way back to Times Square. Great tour and really informative guide. We all had a great time!

The tour guide did an excellent job of preparing the group before the personal tour through the Christmas lights neighborhoods and other noteworthy city sights. The bus driver safely navigated city traffic without incident. They both exhibited pure professionalism.

Since Radio city cancelled my show… a last minute choice foe my kids age 14&6 to see Brooklyn and holiday lights. Meeting spot not far from our hotel and pickup was right on time. Tour bus was clean . Tour guide gave us some city facts and pointed out many iconic areas and bldgs on the 35-40 mon drive to Brooklyn. You can see statue of liberty(small) but hey was not expecting that! Two neighbors hoods bayridge 15-20 minutw block walk then Dyker heights to walk several blocks looking at all the lights. food truck selling hot cocoa and snacks… it was fun but bring a stroller for small kids … it was chilly so dress warm! Ive seen bigger lights in florida but njce to see blocks and blocks of decorated houses. Kids might get tired and bored after a few lights… but if you are a Christmas light fanatic … it was fun. Also bus driver stop by the Hudson for a nice photo op of skyline and Brooklyn bridge . I wqs nervous cause they drop you off not in same area of pickup had to walk Farther …my kid was sleeping so bring a umbrella stroller.

We enjoyed this tour so much! Our guide, Steve, was so knowledgeable of the area, and gave us great ideas and recommendations for other things to see and do during our time here. The lights of Dyker Heights were incredible. Our kids were mesmerized, and we got a lot of great photos. There was so much to see, and we never felt crowded. It was just a beautiful night seeing lights and getting a tour through this lower part of the city over to Brooklyn. I highly recommend!
