  • From Manhattan: 4-Hour Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Bus Tour

    2. From Manhattan: 4-Hour Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Bus Tour

    Christmas in New York City is a magical time. From the beautifully adorned trees in Rockefeller Center and other locations to the Christmas windows of Macy’s, Bergdorf’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, the city is alive with the festive spirit and energy. However, nothing really says Christmas like Dyker Heights. Today, it is perhaps most famously known for its incredible lights displays, which usually arrive in late November and draw travelers from across the world thanks to their colorful holiday cheer. According to locals, residents have been decorating their homes—personally and professionally—since the 1980s, making it a true New York City winter wonderland. This picturesque residential neighborhood is located in the heart of southwest Brooklyn between Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Gravesend Bay. Originally founded as a luxury housing development in the late 1800s, the first house in this icon...

    A comfortable ride took us to Dyker Heights, where we took photos of the many decorated homes. The guide asked for a significant tip at the end of the tour, which I found unsettling as it was definitely not a tipping situation and neither her nor the driver had done anything out of the ordinary to please us - plus the tour is pretty expensive, considered it's basically a 2-hour ride in a bus.

Our guide, Dalton, was FABULOUS!!! He was very knowledgeable about Niagara Falls and the history behind it. Cave of the winds, the Maid of the Mist boat tour, dinner at Anchor Bar and the Illuminated lights at the very end made this a perfect tour. We had a small tour (6 people) which made the experience better, because Dalton didn’t have to yell to a large group, we were right there in front of him. My husband and I truly enjoyed every moment. I definitely would recommend this tour when visiting Niagara Falls. Booking was easy as was knowing that we didn’t have to wait in long lines. BEST TOUR EVER!! BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER!!!!!!

That was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen! Dalton our guide guy was perfect!!! He was super professional and super friendly. Gave us a lot of tips to make sure we will see everything not wasting time. He taught us a lot and when he was talking you really want to listen to it!!!!!
