Viator Traveler's Reviews

This tour wasn't at all as expected. The guide was funny and engaging, but the tour ran very long and we spent a very short time in Dyker Heights. The description did not specify, but there is a lot of walking involved that none of the passengers were aware of. I think there was a lot of wasted time at Bryant Park that could have been avoided. The lights were beautiful on some houses, but not many were decorated. All in all, I would have much rather been doing something else, especially for the price.
The lights we saw were nice but be prepared to spend most of your time on the bus in traffic. I would have expected a toilet on-board or a toilet stop but there wasn't one which is disappointing for a 4 hour tour. Also the tour guide thought insulting people was humorous, but I found it to be rude. I would not recommend this for the price charged.
