What To Expect
During the holidays, our NY See The Lights! Tour converts into the best holiday lights show in NYC. Let us escort you through the city's attractions, educate you about their history, and really let you experience them.
Drive by Rockefeller Center and see New York City's most famous Christmas Tree. We'll show you Christmas window displays at several of New York's top stores, including FAO Schwartz, Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor, and the top stores on 5th Avenue. You'll also see Macy's Department Store, home of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the other shops at Herald Square. Lady Gaga is decorating windows at Barney's this year, so they are sure to be spectacular. See the lights of Times Square - more neon per square foot than anywhere else in the world! What a great place to be during the holidays. Drive through Columbus Circle, at the Southwest corner of Central Park, and see the horse-drawn carriages, the Park itself, Time Warner Center, and ultimately world-famous Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. We'll also make a quick stop to see the skaters and the Holiday Market at Bryant Park.

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree LightsDrive by Rockefeller Center and see New York City's most famous Christmas Tree. The Christmas tree that adorns Rockefeller Center is typically a Norway Spruce, and the one chose is usually between 75 and 90 feet tall and proportionally wide. The tree is donated by someone who grew it in their yard. The people who donate the tree don't get paid for it, but they have the pride of knowing that their tree will be displayed before the world. The Rockefeller Center tree is decorated with over five miles of lights. Plan to go back and visit the tree after your tour. Rockefeller Center is too crowded for our tour to stop there, but you will see it from the bus.
