Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed the Christmas lights. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and kept us entertained during the bus ride to Dyker Heights providing a lot of interesting information about NYC. Once you arrive to Dyker Heights It can be a bit fast paced for some people if you choose to stay with the tour guide which I highly recommend if you don’t want to get lost. Forget about stopping to get hot chocolate or ice cream and treats from vendors. You won’t have time and will be left behind if you do, you have the option to go your own way and see the lights at your own pace but it’s better to follow the guide as he has some interesting info about some of the houses. This tour gets you into the holiday spirit 😊. I recommend this tour.

Hi, Yes, I'm sorry we couldn't stop for hot chocolate or tea, but we must keep up the pace to show you a small but beautiful part of the Dyker Heights neighborhood. I'm glad you enjoyed the trip. We are considering adding a hot chocolate stop next year. Thank you for your comments. Fred

I’ve wanted to do this tour for ages so when we booked our dream trip to NYC from the UK, this was a must on the list. It did not disappoint.

We were picked up and greeted by the lovely Ray. He was amazing, so knowledgeable and funny telling us everything he knows, it was a lot!

Once at Dyker Heights, Ray takes you around some of the best decorated houses you’ll ever see whilst constantly giving you Information. He showed an interest in his guests, where they were from etc. That was really nice. The houses blow you away. Some really get into the festive period. We came on the 1st December so not everyone had decorated but it was an incredible experience. I highly recommended this tour and trip. We’ll definitely do it again when we come back.

This tour was so much more than was described in the listing and worth more than was charged. It was a thorough tour and history of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Our guide, Ray, was entertaining and knowledgeable. The Dyker Heights lighted houses was fabulous. I highly recommend this tour. Small group was nice too.

Thank you very much. We don't like to brag, but as you said, "the tour is much more than described." Ray is an excellent guide, and I'm glad you enjoyed his commentary. We can't always guarantee a small crowd, but the ride will always be fun and interesting.

After arriving early at our meeting point we were soom swamped bu scores of other ticket holders. Our tickest were never checked but we had a guy called Stephen throw us off two buses and cursed at us and our grandchildren, eventually we got on the last but still no tickets checked in fact you could have gone on this trip without paying as nobody cared. Upset we asked if we could get off at Brooklyn and make our own way back which was refused - Trip Advisor despite advertising the trip and taking our money for this and several othe trips for the week have refused to help and passed the buck to their suppliers who are jst ignoring our complainst - so never again and I advise you to stay well clear as you will get no support if things go wrong

To be clear, this individual did not participate in any tour conducted by NY See Tours. It is misplaced. Trip Advisor has refused to remove it. My company prides itself in it's customer service and attention to detail. It is unfortunate that our hard earned 5-Star ranking is sullied by one bad review and TA's lack of concern for it's vendors. I'm sorry you had a bad experience with one of our competitors. This review is not ours and I would appreciate if you can remove it and place it with the correct company.

The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, but we could hardly hear him at the back of the bus. The Christmas lights were somewhat disappointing. I’m not sure if the neighborhood isn’t participating like they used too, but the lights were not worth 4 hours out of my trip. Just look at my pics instead, and you will see the majority of the good houses. There is way too much other stuff to do NYC!

Hi, I'm sorry you were disappointed. I'm not sure when you took the tour, but the lights in Dyker Heights are fully ablaze. More houses are lit than ever before. I'm sorry they did not meet your expectations.

Loved our tour of Dyker Heights Christmas lights. Ja our tour guide was very insightful. He told us a lot of good stories and took pictures. We really loved looking at these neighborhoods and seeing the holiday traditions. It was one of our favorite things we did on our trip.

Bus drive from 45th was slow due to traffic but not a bad drive. Stopped at one neighborhood in Brooklyn first, it was beautiful and festive. Next stop was Dyker Heights and WOW do they put on a light show. No it was not every house but the several blocks we walked most had something. Some were over the top with snow, carousels, thousands of lights, music but most were beautifully done. A friend and I strolled the quiet streets on a beautiful night sipping hot chocolate from a food truck in the neighborhood. It was a wonderfully relaxing evening. A big bonus was another stop under the Brooklyn Bridge for delicious ice cream and a view of the city that was just amazing!! Great tour for the price and I will go again next year and bring my husband. If you love Christmas lights this is a must see.

I took the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights tour with Fred Pflantzer and was pleasantly surprised.
The comfortable ride from Manhattan seemed like it would be a long time proportional to the tour itself but on the way Mr. Pflantzer was witty and engaging and kept us entertained and informed all the way to (and from) our destination.
We strolled around the neighborhood and took in the marvelous lights. Our tour guide knew the best streets to take and the best direction to take them in. He even knew where to get hot chocolate (this is a December event, after all).
We were driven back to Manhattan and the dedicated few even ended the tour at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
Take this tour, it's worth it.

Great night of viewing Brooklyn Christmas Lights. The famous Dyker Heights (and more) lights do not disappoint. Marc with a “C” is the best tour guide. He knows everything about Brooklyn.
