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.

New York Midtown Scavenger Hunt Adventure
"Fantastic experience - loved by natives and tourists alike! In our experience everyone learned something new, even those of us that lived here for years, although it is a more touristy experience. The questions are fun and challenging and the route really highlights the interconnected nature of Manhattan! We were a group ranging from 17-23 yo people. Although a perfect way to get to know Manhattan for families, the Quest might be more challenging for small children since the questions are of medium difficulty and require literacy. It was so fun we didn’t even notice all the walking! You can take two breaks during the challenge (which we did once to get dinner) which means you can do the Quest at your own pace without penalty! Again, could not recommend more!"..."
