Full description

Experience Christmas in New York City on a comfortable bus tour of Dyker Heights, world-known for its luminous light displays. Witness the festive decoration tradition that the residents have kept alive since the 1980s. Drive from Manhattan to Brooklyn.

Enjoy this lively Italian-American neighborhood with your tour guide. Due to narrow streets, buses are not allowed in Dyker Heights, so hop off the bus and follow your guide to the two most illuminated streets in the area.

See Lucy Spata's house, which started the tradition of Dyker Lights in the '80s. Walk along the most spectacularly decorated houses. Next, stop at the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights. Enjoy the view of the Manhattan Skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge for about 25 minutes.

Return via the Manhattan Bridge. End the experience at Bryant Park, where you can admire the famous winter market or take a spin on the Ice Rink.

Our tour guide (I think she said her name was Freddie?) was very helpful and provided a lot of information on the drive to Brooklyn about the area we’d be visiting and New York in general. The lights were very pretty and the houses gorgeous! Definitely an activity to get you in the festive spirit. Perhaps my only critique would be to make the tour a little longer? We had an hour of walking time, and although we saw most of the houses there were some streets we didn’t go down that were brightly decorated. But overall a fantastic tour and something to get you in the holiday spirits!

we had an amazing experience, we loved every minute of it! I highly recommend doing this tour. our tour guide Frederica was excellent she was very knowledgeable about the history of New York City, and all the area we tour. we are a family of four with a preteen and a teenager and both kids loved the tour.

This was an amazing tour. We had a great tour guide named Freddy (I believe). Very informative. The houses were absolutely beautiful! Our tour guide carried a light in case we got lost. And of course we were the ones to get lost. Didn’t realize how many people were going to be there and how easy it is to get lost in the crowd. However we were able to do our own thing at our speed abs still catch up with our group. We were able to get great pictures and the pictures at Brooklyn bridge (or Manhattan bridge) were gorgeous! It was a fabulous tour! Highly recommend it!
