The tour guide is the perfect person to work with on this tour because they lead you through the area, show you all the places that have put lights, and explain how these lights came to be. You can ask questions about how the tour was set up because the people who decorate in town do it out of love.
You must take this tour when you have traveled to New York for the holiday, and you are walked around for hours at night to see these lights. Your kids can come along because it is the perfect ending to the night, and it helps you have a good time with people that love in a city that is unique and special.
The best part of this tour is that you can schedule it at any time. The tour guide leads you to all the best places, and they set up the tour at a time that is best for you.
You must use the tour as a way to see the best of Dyker Heights, and you get a taste of Brooklyn that most people do not. The tour is more fun than most, and it provides you with the holiday feeling.
This holiday tour takes you to the residential neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, Italian-American sections of Brooklyn where you will find tree-lined streets and beautiful private residences decorated for the Christmas holidays. It has been a tradition for many years to illuminate these homes with thousands of lights and dazzling Christmas scenes and has become a friendly competition between owners.
You won't just see the lights; you'll walk through the neighborhoods with a guide to hear the stories behind this fun holiday event that brings thousands of people here each year. You may even meet some homeowners who are a proud part of this festive holiday.
On your way back to Manhattan, you'll see the spectacular New York skyline and some of the beautiful displays. Stop a Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center to see the iconic displays including the Christmas tree and ice skating rink. You'll be dropped off in Midtown to conclude your tour.
