Full description

Discover the magic of the holiday season in New York City on a guided bus day trip. See the world-famous Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Get into the spirit of the season as you see the Christmas windows of Macy’s and Bergdorf. Stop in Brooklyn Heights for views of the Manhattan Skyline.

Hop aboard the bus at a centrally-located meeting point in NYC. Journey out to the astounding Christmas light of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Ride along the streets of Manhattan and listen to your licensed guide who will entertain you with the rich Yule history of New York City along the way.

Travel through Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, past the famous High Line and then down along the West Side Highway. On this tour, learn and see more than you expected.  Emerging from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, ride along the Brooklyn Queens Expressway viewing the waterfront, and the expansive vista of New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty will be visible off to your right.

After a short ride, leave the bus and tour Dyker Heights on foot for about an hour. The lights in the Heights range from tasteful displays created by local homeowners to extensive professionally imagined lighting extravaganzas. No matter what your take on Christmas lights there will be something for you to enjoy.   After you leave the Heights, make a brief stop at the famous Brooklyn Heights Esplanade to view the movie-like vista of the lower Manhattan Skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. There will be more to see as you make your way over Manhattan Bridge back through Manhattan, ending up at the centerpiece of New York's holiday delights, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. On arrival at the tree, your tour will end.

We purposely planned this for the day we arrived since we wanted something to look forward to. This was definitely worth the wait. Our your guide was knowledgeable of the different neighborhoods we passed by prior to our Dyker Heights arrival. Our stops and different destinations made it exciting and fun since I was able to not plan a single thing. Our driver was friendly as well. We made bathroom breaks in great areas too. The cherry on top, was Rockefeller Center, where it beloved your guide to photos of us, which I'm sure he didn't have to do. We loved him so much, we even took a photo with him. Can't wait to join this tour again next year. With love, YOUR SAN DIEGO GIRLS

The weather was not cooperative but we made the most of the tour. It was a challenge seeing some of the highlights because of the weather. But our guide and driver were fantastic and made the tour as enjoyable as possible. I would certainly like to take the tour again.

My husband and I just finished this wonderful tour. Our tour guide, JA, was friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. He provided interesting facts about the sights and about NYC in general. The tour route was comprehensive and gave us the best views of the beautiful holiday lights around the city. The bus was comfortable and the driver, Fredo, did an excellent job navigating the tight roads, highway, and busy traffic. This tour was worth the money!
