The Basics

Located between Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights is known as a great place to raise a family. In winter months, visitors enjoy over-the-top Christmas-light displays adorning the neighborhood’s historical homes. Consider booking a guided tour to see all of the most festive houses. Tours often provide transportation to and from Manhattan—crossing one of Brooklyn’s lovely bridges—so you can avoid spotty weekend subway service and simply enjoy the views.

Dyker Heights Brooklyn Christmas Lights Tour
The lights on the homes in Dyker Heights were spectacular and even breathtaking. We enjoyed the tour of the homes very much. The only downside was that the tour ran over by almost an hour, causing us to miss a dinner reservation. There were 2 stops on the tour. The first stop was unspectacular and could have been eliminated in order to keep the tour on the scheduled time.

Best tour ever! Our tour guide Fred was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Dyker Heights and New York in general. Had lots of good trivia and stories to tell. The Beautifully decorated homes are hard to capture in pictures. What an experience! Plus we hit all the nice points in the city. The time flew by. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

This was a great trip start to finish. What made it for me was not just the walk around Dyker heights but the nice drive down through Manhattan and then the stop at the Brooklyn Bridge on the way back to Times Square. Great tour and really informative guide. We all had a great time!

NYC Christmas Lights LIMOUSINE Tour - Dyker Heights in Brooklyn
Our driver was very professional and kind. He was patient as we had my mother along and uses a walker to get around. He was informative and made the trip very enjoyable for all. The lifts were beautiful and the limo was clean and festive with a Christmas show and complimentary drinks. Thank you Anthony for helping to make a memory even more pleasant! Highly recommend for all ages!
