    The bus ride was nice. The bus was clean and our tour guide was very nice and talked a lot giving us lots of information. The Christmas lights didn’t meet our expectations. The homes were beautiful but not all of them were decorated and some were minimal decorations. We went in early December so maybe that was the reason? It was overpriced for what we saw.

    Daniel was a fun and energetic guide although it was clear english wasnt his mother tongue but his personality made up for it, theres room for improvement for the explanations on the bus Bus was way too hot and lacking in ventilation, but it has a toilet The suburb itself is beautiful and some of the decos we saw definitely is the best in terms of how committed the house owners are, and here you will understand what christmas should feel like The only downside was the streets become quite packed with tourists like us (like, times square kind of packed) especially around the really awesome crazy decos It will be very difficult to find a suburb anywhere in the world that can match this, and the story behind the 'why' is really one of a kind. Every visitor to NYC during christmas shd go on this tour I just felt bad to the actual residents for ruining their neighbourhood lol

    We had fun! It was a weird little tour haha but in a good way! The warm bus was nice. There was Christmas music playing the entire ride which was also fun and festive. However ours kept getting stuck and repeating the same songs over and over which was funny. The whole bus was laughing. The houses on the tour go all out! I will say, watch for your tour guide, it could be easy to get separated from your group as there are soooo many people. Glad we did this tour, I would recommend!

    This was so much more than a visit to Dyker Heights because of our guide, Alan, whose knowledge of New York was extensive and so freely shared as we passed sights on route. Even our crazy driver Luis added some entertainment although his customer care skills weren’t quite on point. This is definitely a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn’t be missed in NYC at Christmas!

    I went to dyker heights from Times Square, Alan was amazing very much knowledgeable answered all questions every one had and made it safe for everyone Evan when I was a solo traveler on the trip

    My family of four kids 9-17 had a blast with our tour guide Alan. Wow! He has so much knowledge of this area. This excursion is way more than Christmas lights. It takes a while to get to Dyker heights due to Nyc traffic. However, you get to see A lot of NYC you’d never see otherwise and Alan’s commentary makes it so interesting. I do not recommend for small children or elderly. Highly recommend!

    Stephen was great! We had such a fun night looking at Christmas lights and learning some fun facts about the city. Stephen and our driver truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt comfortable and safe. We could not recommend more!

    I would totally recommend this to anyone coming to visit New York for the Holidays! It’s a mini holiday escape from the very busy manhattan and you get a little taste of the boroughs! The residents of the neighborhoods go above and beyond your expectation of Christmas lights and so do the tour guides! Our guide was Daniel and he was so energetic and fun to be around! Would definitely do again!

    Brooklyn is serious about Christmas! This tour was fun and easy. If you like driving around your town looking at lights, this is next level and something you won’t regret.
