Nothing says Christmas like Dyker Heights, the most famous display of lights on the planet. Locals have been decorating their homes—personally and professionally—since the '80s, making it a true NYC winter wonderland.


The ride from Midtown to Dyker Heights in Brooklyn is about an hour long on board of our comfortable coach fully heated with a restroom on board.

Your guide will escort you to Lucy Spata's house, the house that started this tradition, and walk you through the most illuminated streets before taking you back to the bus. You will spend about an hour in Dyker Heights strolling around and taking pictures.

The next stop will be at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge in the DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights area of Brooklyn. You will have about 25 minutes to take pictures of the breathtaking Manhattan skyline and the Bridge.

Then you will return to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. The tour ends at the Bryant Park Winter Village.

Great for Christmas Visit to NYC
Justin S, 22-12-2022
My wife and I came to NYC for the Christmas season. After we enjoyed the Rockettes and a broadway show, I planned this tour with Trip Advisor. Mike was our guide and he did a great job sharing NYC history along with the amazing lights. The walk through the neighborhood was amazing and it’s a wonderful tradition. The stop by DUMBO to see the NYC skyline was great too. I would definitely recommend this tour for your Christmas trip to NYC.
Great trip

Mike was a knowledgeable and fun tour guide. The lights of Dyker Heights were gorgeous and seeing the New York skyline from Dumbo was amazing. We had a great time!
Quite expensive but a low hassle way to see the lights

The Christmas lights were amazing, our guide was very chatty and friendly, and the driver was careful and courteous but it was quite expensive.
