What You Can Expect

Brooklyn Christmas Lights Tour of Dyker Heights

Top Off Your Evening With a Festive Italian Cannoli

Meet your guide in the evening at Lower Manhattan’s Union Square, where you’ll hop aboard a comfortable climate-controlled coach and travel over the Brooklyn Bridge. Admire the sparkling NYC skyline as you make your way south through the borough of Brooklyn toward Dyker Heights.

This residential Italian-American neighborhood gained its fame in the 1980s with its jaw-dropping Christmas displays. You might recognize this place – it has been featured on numerous TV shows and documentaries including PBS's Dyker Lights and TLC's Crazy Christmas Lights! It's no wonder that Dyker Heights was voted the number one destination for holiday lights in the United States in 2012.

Begin your Christmas lights tour with a drive through Brooklyn's neighborhoods, discovering the festive homes and decorations in less trafficked areas of the borough only known to native Brooklynites. If you find these homes impressive, just wait until you make your way to Dyker Heights, the streets absolutely bursting with grand, over-the-top lights, decorations, motorized displays and glowing, life-like nativity scenes. As your guide will explain, many of the elaborate displays are professionally done, some costing over USD $10,000 to create!

Your experience is enhanced by the coach's onboard monitors showing videos and music from vintage Christmas specials starring legends such as Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Singing along is encouraged! After your tour, enjoy a relaxing drive back to Manhattan.

This entertaining tour through Brooklyn's most electric holiday neighborhoods has been featured on Samantha Brown’s Holidays in New York special on the Travel Channel, Good Morning America, ABC’s The Chew, and even overseas on The Nate Berkus Show in the United Kingdom and Italia Chiama Italia in Italy. Hop aboard and discover a new holiday tradition.

Please note: This tour is seasonal and operates from November 30 to December 31 only.
