This tour is sure to put you and your family in the holiday spirit. Head to the residential neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, Italian-American areas 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. See toy soldiers, Santa Claus with his reindeer and many other festive characters. 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.

      The tour was great. Our tour guide made sure everyone was accounted for before we began the tour (the bus left on time). The guide was very informative and spoke throughout the tour showing us building structures and the history of NY. We even got to see the Brooklyn bridge on our last stop. We saw the lights and they were amazing to see. I highly recommend this tour.

      My family had a wonderful time on the Christmas lights tour. The tour guide was awesome. While traveling on the bus, he pointed out various buildings and gave background information about the city. The light displays were amazing and it is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
