Having been aware of the NYC Lights at Christmas Time at Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue, I was eager to participate in this tour. Although it rained the entire time, I was not disappointed. Furthermore, not only did we enjoy the tour, it allowed us to learn enough of the locations to return to the area on our own and further appreciate the the unbelievable displays.

Our tour guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had both adults and kids, some of whom lived in NYC previously, taking this tour, and we all were equally impressed. Bring blankets, as it can get a wee bit cool by the end.

loved the tour and the tour guide. he knew something about everything New York. we never would have seen some of this stuff on our own. Kudos to the driver as well for getting us up and down those narrow streets. Great job all around!

This was a lovely trip on our last evening in New York. We had already been on two tours but this tour took us to areas we hadn't been before. The guide we had was very knowledgeable (as were all the guides we had). The tour finished in a central location so it was easy to walk back to Rockefeller Center and really see the tree and the people on the ice skating rink (and have a go, if you wanted to).
