Great tour! Do it!
Loved this tour so glad we did it! Our guide was Daniel and he was great so funny and charismatic so glad we got him as our guide. I will say we were extra happy with this tour they graciously waited about 15 minutes for us we got stuck in traffic and had to run to get there! Don’t take Ubers or lifts waste of time and money! So we really appreciated that. The ride there is smooth and a nice break from walking they also drive by many scenic spots. Once you arrive Daniel would walk along the way pointing out the highlights along the way and he also provides free time to roam around the neighborhood and see what you like. Definitely worth the price and the convenience of the bus is great since you don’t have to worry about parking or driving through the packed streets. After Dyker Heights we got to stop at a great photo spot for the Brooklyn bridge perfect quick pit stop to get some photos before heading back. Highly recommend and would do it again!
Tour guide Alan was one of my favorite parts
Alan was our tour guide. He was a local and had great knowledge of the area, especially the portion of Manhattan that we drove through. I would love to take a tour of all of Manhattan with him!
I chose this tour because it went through 2 neighborhoods with lights. The first (can’t remember what it was called) was nice but not as many houses with lights as Dyker Heights, but also not as many people walking around which I liked.
Dyker Heights was mayhem lol. So many cars, people, and hot chocolate trucks. There were multiple tour groups so you had to be careful to keep an eye on Alan or you could accidentally start following the wrong group.
Lots of houses with lights, some completely decked out. It was pretty. I think I would have preferred to be in the warmth of a vehicle rather than walking around in the cold but alas, buses aren’t allowed down the residential streets.
Last stop was a very pretty spot to take pics of the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan skyline.
One of our favorite things we got to do in NYC! Alan made the trip interesting and fun! We would definitely recommend!
Great guide here was very informative and
The tour guide Andrea was very informative and pleasant & lights were amazing but too many people to fully enjoy them. Was well
The tour was to originate AND END at 51st & Broadway (McDonald's corner). We stayed in a hotel near here for that reason. We were dropped off at 42nd & 5th Avenue & others were dropped at 42nd & 7th. That is quite a walk when it is this cold and for children & elderly.
