Christmas in New York City is a magical time. From the beautifully adorned trees in Rockefeller Center and other locations to the Christmas windows of Macy’s, Bergdorf’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, the city is alive with the festive spirit and energy. However, nothing really says Christmas like Dyker Heights. Today, it is perhaps most famously known for its incredible lights displays, which usually arrive in late November and draw travelers from across the world thanks to their colorful holiday cheer. According to locals, residents have been decorating their homes—personally and professionally—since the 1980s, making it a true New York City winter wonderland. This picturesque residential neighborhood is located in the heart of southwest Brooklyn between Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Gravesend Bay. Originally founded as a luxury housing development in the late 1800s, the first house in this icon...
A comfortable ride took us to Dyker Heights, where we took photos of the many decorated homes. The guide asked for a significant tip at the end of the tour, which I found unsettling as it was definitely not a tipping situation and neither her nor the driver had done anything out of the ordinary to please us - plus the tour is pretty expensive, considered it's basically a 2-hour ride in a bus.
See the Cave of the Winds, Observation Tower, and other Niagara attractions in a clean and comfortable vehicle, in the company of a local, professional guide.

The downtown bus was great but the uptown bus wasn’t on cue when we passed specific sites. It would talk about them too early and when we reached them they were already talking about something else.

Lenny was the best tour guide! He knew how to keep the group laughing at all times! My cheeks hurt at the end of the tour! He shared so many stories and history that we wouldn’t have gotten if we explored the falls alone! The falls were nothing short of amazing! Thanks for such a great time! We are taking home many memories!
Jimmy’s The Best! Just wanted to Thank Jimmy for such a personal, knowledgeable, and memorable tour. So adaptable to the necessary changes and not worrying about time. Melissa and I will recommend your company and “Jimmy” to our friends. Don’t wait too long to get another dog, Jimmy!
Team Paul couldn't have been better. The tour leader's name is Paul of course. We were a small group of only 13 people so Paul gave each party his best service. He was informative during the tour and made sure everyone was having a wonderful time.
It was well worth having a guide. He told us good information about our trip and how to get the most out of it.
Great way to get oriented and see the boroughs surrounding Manhattan.
