Cannot blame our tour guide for the weather but can blame Viator of running this tour to early as most of the lights being off or not put in place as houses still on thanks giving holiday. The tour guide I couldn't blame for not wanting to get soaked but to just dump you at the corner of a street and give you some directions not good enough most people didn't know ware to go . Last year tour guide came round even though it bloody rained on that day also and explained the history and people who lived in the houses.

We're very sorry to hear you had a less than exciting experience on our tour of Dyker Heights. Thank you for acknowledging the rain being a factor, it was a very rainy evening. We appreciate the feedback on the tour itself and always take considerations based on our guest's experiences.

Thanks for the enjoyment of our trip to Dyker heights. Even thought it was a bit early in the fact not all had their lights on as it was nov 30 th we loved every minute of it. This is one thing ticked off our bucket list. Had you not started your till Dec 1 at we would have missed out as we went home next morning. Loved it.

Hi Kai, I am so happy to read your reviews. The reason why we start early is exactly that. Everybody cannot be here during the peak season. Over the years we have been receiving a lot of requests for early tours. Moreover, all the houses that are professionally decorated by specialized companies are ready by Thanksgiving. And those are the houses that you really need to see, whereas the other houses are more like fillers and they get lit a little later in the season. Thank you so much for your wonderful review and take good care!

Dyker Heights Christmas Lights

This was a good trip but a bit early being the day after Thanksgiving as a lot of houses still putting up lights or not home. Still very beautiful with what we saw.

Dear Cathy, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed what you saw and thank you so much for your feedback. While we can never know exactly how many houses will be fully decorated, it is generally known that the Christmas light season starts the weekend after Thanksgiving and the residents in Dyker Heights get them up quickly, though the first several days may not be fully decorated. With that being said we believe that starting the tour early is always worth it. Everybody cannot be in town during the peak season.

Worth a visit

We enjoyed our trip to see the Christmas lights, Frankie was really lovely and told us a lot about New York and Dyker Heights. I thought it would be quite tacky but it wasn't at all. It is a bit of a journey and we'd have liked more time to take in all of spectacles but we had about an hour tops.

Comfortable bus with an excellent guide. The toilet in the bus was helpful for kids visiting a residential neighborhood without this amenity for guests. The stop at the Brooklyn bridge was not expected from the tour description. A complimentary hot drink would have been a perfect inclusion in the list. Overall a beautiful way to experience the Dazzling Light Display of Dyker Heights.

Excellent Dyker Heights/Brooklyn bridge tour

Our tour guide, Frédérique, was excellent. She was on-time, told us about the city on the way to Dyker Hts and gave us over an hour to see the lights. She then took us for photo ops at Brooklyn bridge! Beautiful at night.

Fantastic Introduction to the Dyker Heights Lights.

I've lived in the North Jersey for over twenty years and I've wanted to see the lights ever since I learned about them. My sister visited from PA specifically for this tour. I didn't want to drive or MTA to Brooklyn, this tour fit the bill perfectly. We drove to Port Authority and parked. Getting to Yotel is a short walk. We were greeted on time by our polite and professional guide and driver. The bus was modern, clean and included a toilet and a/c power plugs. The guide provided lots of interesting information about the city. The hour long self-tour began at the outrageously decorated house every local TV station reports in front of. An hour passes very quickly - I suggest not dilly-dallying at any one home. The neighborhood is scattered with ice cream trucks selling hot cocoa. The twenty minute stop in Dumbo provided an opportunity to take great photos of the bridge and skyline. Personally I would have preferred to use the Dumbo time in Dyker Heights instead. That said, the tour was fun, stress free, and worth every penny.

Fantastic tour - well worth doing if you can. We enjoyed it even in the -20 weather. You are outside a lot so layers are the key.

Great trip! Our tour guides were extremely helpful and informative. They dropped us off only 2 minutes away from the best decorated blocks. They were Italian and kindly gave us their opinions of which restaurants and pizza was the most authentic to Italian cuisine. Thanks again.
