Join the Rockettes, Santa Claus, and the Toy Soldiers in this once in a life time NYC Christmas experience. See the Radio City Music Hall stage transform into a giant, magical canvas before your very eyes! Extending beyond the stage, onto the ceiling and walls, you will be amazed as the magic of Christmas surrounds you. Some of the most memorable scenes are the legendary Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, Santa's magical ride to his workshop at the North Pole, where playful rag dolls come to life, plus the re-enactment of the first Christmas in the Living Nativity. After or before the show enjoy a Holiday window tour of the Famous NY department stores display and see the Famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has been a nati...

    Rockettes were great. Your company didn't notify that the window tour was at 10 am on Wednesday and due to our flight time we could not make that. Due to an illness of an employee you didn't offer it on Thursday so I didn't get the full value of what I purchased. Could not do it on Friday cause I had booked another 9/11 tour with you. I really derserve some type of compensation. At this point I would not recommend your services.

  • From Manhattan: 4-Hour Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Bus Tour

    2. From Manhattan: 4-Hour Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Bus Tour

    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.

The tour guide picked us up at our hotel on time. The tour was very interesting and covered all of the better viewing areas of the falls. The Maid of the Mist boat tour was great, even with all the spray from the falls.

Live in CNY. Been to the city plenty of times but never have been here. Why did our family wait so long??? This was a great experience and rich in history. The views, AMAZING! Love the Big !
