Your tour will begin at the main entrance of two Midtown hotels in Manhattan. From there you will head towards the western part of Manhattan along the Hudson River as you learn about its history. You will then cross the Battery Tunnel, which will take you directly to the borough of Brooklyn. Once you are in Brooklyn you'll head to the Dyker Heights district; an Italian-American neighborhood famous for its elaborate houses and gardens. Each year residents compete between each other to make out of the ordinary Christmas decorations, illuminations, and displays. Your tour guide will tell you about the origin and history of this tradition, before giving you have free time to walk the streets to admire and take pictures of the houses. Once you have finished the tour of the neighborhood, you will get back on the bus to go to the Brooklyn Bridge.

OMG. I cannot express how glad we are that we did this tour!! We got to see all of Brooklyn in a safe and comfortable way. If you have the tour guide Jorge, you are in for a treat. He is hilarious, knowledgeable, and incredibly kind. Totally made our day and would take any tour with him again. 11/10.

I would prefer more time allotted to the Brooklyn Bridge/Lower Manhattan stop (This was the highlight for me. Simply gorgeous!!). Ending the trip at Bryant Park was a cherry on top. Less time on stops 1 and 2 then making stop 3 as the highlight with time to get dessert at Brooklyn's Ice Cream World and/or Pizza at the famous Grimaldi would give it a 5 stars for me. Overall, our experience was wonderful!!
