Well first of all let me tell you it was a very cold Christmas Day when we did this tour, very cold.
Picking the bus up was easy, it was central and easy to find and we were actually on the bus and ready to go a good 15mins before the official start time.
The bus holds about 40 people, so it is a good size and the guide was very friendly. The problem when you have a bus this size is that you get people who are either very cold or very hot so the temperature is always being adjusted to extremes. I think the guide needs to set the temp to 22C and just leave it there and tell people that it is what it is.
Anyway took us 30mins to get to Brooklyn, we went to an area that wasn't Dyker first of all and was a little quieter than Dyker, that was good, not a lot for a guide to tell you other than let you wander for 15minutes. Please note I never felt rushed.
Then we went to Dyker, this place is chaotic, really busy and gridlocked with traffic. The guide walked around and I suppose gave us a kind of route but certainly there was no commentary. I would say an hour was more than enough to look at everything but then it was really cold outside.
On the way back they stopped by Brooklyn Bridge for pictures but I would say most people just stayed on the bus, just seemed a bit of a pointless addition.
Overall I think the tour did what it said on the tin, it took us to Dyker and the guide was good. It wasn't really a tour where you needed info just needed shipping back and forth. The guide told us a little about how the lights started and took us to the ladies house who started it all so I suppose that was all you really needed.
Once you have done it once you'd probably never do it again but it was a good use of an evening

Overall the whole experience was very wonderful, despite the rain. Andrea and her husband made the whole experience very wonderful. Andrea was very informative and knowledgeable about the different areas of New York. As a tour guide she was very keen on not losing anyone behind with her in the front and her husband in the back. She managed to make extra stops in the tour which was such a plus😄 the area we went to was very beautiful, very decorative and wet. Overall the whole tour was such a beautiful experience. Also would like to applaud Juan Carlos the bus driver who amazed us with his driving skills in the most tightest areas of New York, Brooklyn and everywhere we went. If I were anyone who is traveling to New York, this is a highly recommended thing to do. 😄😄👍

The lights were amazing. Bus was nice. Guide could have been better. Boring and talked too much. When guiding us through the vey heavy coeds, she was hard to find because the light she carried to finger was barely lit up and she was short. We kept worrying we were going to lose her and not find the bus.

The traffic was so slow that it took two hours to get to the lights. That was not the tour's fault. The bus got too warm inside during this time, and the temperature was inconsistent. The lights were fantastic and I'm glad I went. We took the subway back to our hotel. On another night if might be better. Just be patient

Warning: NOT BABY FRIENDLY

We asked ahead of time if we could bring our baby in her car seat and stow the stroller in the bus stroller. We stowed the stroller and got settled in our seat then just before we left we were told we had to hold the car seat on our lap. This is the opposite of what we were told when we asked upon boarding.

The coordinator YELLED AT ME when telling me this because he overbooked the bus causing him to split up families with another bus.

Unfortunately it was too late for us to get off the bus but if we had known we would’ve rented a car.

We were told to arrive by 4:45 for a 5 leave time. The bus and driver were there at 4:30 but the person that was supposed to check us in didn't show up which left us all standing on the street in the cold. Finally our guide showed up and tracked down the person who was supposed to check us in. So we were late leaving by about 15 minutes. They couldn't control the heat on the bus so it was pretty warm on there plus they couldn't get the Christmas music to play. When we arrived at Dyker Heights instead of the hour we were told we'd be there the guide cut it down to 45 minutes since we got a late start. So let's just say it was a fast paced walk around to see the lights. At the end of the tour we were supposed to be dropped right around times square, but that didn't happen either. They went down 3rd avenue and just started dropping people off at whatever corner was closest to where they wanted off. Our hotel was on 47th street. We took this particular tour because it started only 4 blocks from our hotel, but we were let off a mile from our hotel and on a dark isolated street. My daughter said walking back to the hotel was the scariest part of our trip.

We had fun! It was a weird little tour haha but in a good way! The warm bus was nice. There was Christmas music playing the entire ride which was also fun and festive. However ours kept getting stuck and repeating the same songs over and over which was funny. The whole bus was laughing. The houses on the tour go all out! I will say, watch for your tour guide, it could be easy to get separated from your group as there are soooo many people. Glad we did this tour, I would recommend!

My husband and I did this trip when in New york on holiday and after seeing so many people rave about dyker heights lights we were really looking forward to it but ended up pretty disappointed. Don't get me wrong the houses are pretty but I don't think it's worth just under £100 for the two of us and the over an hour bus trip to see them and would have preferred to go and do it just ourselves. The bus took ages to actually start and seemed like we just spent most of the time on the bus which was far too hot and stuffy. The tour guide was nice enough but although we did tip I didn't like the way he outright asked for tips and said thay since we have his number we could vemno him if we didn't have cash, just a bit too pushy we felt. It just felt like a bit of a wasted night when we only had a few in the city.

We took this tour at the beginning of December which meant that although not all of the houses were decorated the streets were much quieter than later on in the month. The bus journey was very comfortable and we stopped at 2 locations to see the lights. Our guide was great and it was easy to keep track of where we were going. The lights are amazing and the experience was even better as it was snowing the whole way through! The last stop was Dumbo although by this time it was pretty windy and we were all soaked through because of the snow so no-one wanted to hang about for long. I imagine in better weather this would be a fabulous final stop. I'm glad we went when it was quiet as I don't think it would have been as enjoyable at peak times.

Stephen was great! We had such a fun night looking at Christmas lights and learning some fun facts about the city. Stephen and our driver truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt comfortable and safe. We could not recommend more!
