What to Expect

This is the original Christmas lights tour of Dyker Heights featured on Good Morning America, Nightline, and Travel Channel! On this tour, you'll get to see the most extravagant Christmas light displays in the country! The light displays are located in the Dyker Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, aka “Dyker Lights.” Every year, it transforms into a magical winter wonderland that's sure to get even the biggest scrooge in the Christmas spirit! 


Over 100,000 people flock to this area every year to see the most over-the-top decorations. Most of the homeowners and professional decorating companies hang their Christmas lights and decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving. However, the best time to see the lights is mid-December through New Year’s Eve. During your Christmas lights tour, you'll see life-sized Santas, sleighs, snowmen, and some houses even bump Christmas carols from loudspeakers. 


The light displays are from 11th to 13th Avenues (also known as Dyker Heights Blvd) from 83rd to 86th Street in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Crowds of all ages flock to this neighborhood to stroll the blocks and avenues and experience one of the top things to do in NYC in the winter. This tour doesn't just drop you off in the neighborhood — they know the homeowners personally and escort you around like you’re family! If this tour doesn’t get you in the Christmas spirit, then your name is Ebeneezer Scrooge!

By Subway: Take the L, N, Q, R, 4, 5, or 6 to the '14th Street / Union Square' stop. Leave the subway, and walk over to the North East corner 4th Avenue and East 13th Street.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the tour operator’s guides are authentic Brooklynites with sassy personalities to prove it! The founders try to be on every tour, but from time to time your guide will be another family member or licensed NYC tour guide who was trained by the founder. All of the guides are just as knowledgeable, fun and familiar with the neighborhoods you’ll be visiting.
