Nothing says Christmas like Dyker Heights, perhaps the most famous display of lights on the planet. Locals have been decorating their homes—personally and professionally—since the '80s, making it a true NYC winter wonderland. On your tour, you'll drive from Manhattan to Brooklyn and see lights from both on and off the bus. (Note: buses are not allowed in Dyker Heights because of the narrow streets) Your guide will escort you to Lucy Spata's house, the house that started this tradition, and walk you through the most illuminated streets before taking you back to the bus. You will have about an hour in Dyker Heights to walk around and take pictures. The next stop on the tour will be at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge in the DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights area of Brooklyn. You will have about 25 minutes to take pictures of the breathtaking Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. Then you will return to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. The tour ends at the Bryant Park Winter Village.
