    Traffic was so bad that we spent most of the time sitting on the bus waiting. We were re-routed on a couple streets because of high traffic volume. Did not really see many lights, mostly dark streets where a movie was made. Did not live up to expectations.

    Really a dark bus ride through the city with very little holiday lights. The bus itself was very smelly inside, do not think the tank was cleaned and smelled like an out house. We saw 3 sets of store displays and only 1 had a holiday theme. This tour was basically watching clips of holiday movies filmed in NYC - we really were unable to see any sites in the dark. Only place with lights we saw was driving through Rockefeller Center. Tour guide was nice but seemed very unexperienced. We were all extremely bored and disappointed in this tour unfortunately.

    My experience with the New York Holiday Lights and Movie Sites Tour was AWESOME!! Max the guide was very witty, kind and knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. I also appreciate the tour bus driver as he maneuvered through some pretty congested traffic. I highly recommend and have recommended this tour to everyone.

    The tour guide was knowledgeable but, the tour was disappointing. There was a lot of downtime while the bus driver was stuck in traffic. About half way through they stopped at Bloomingdales to let us off for some window shopping; we had already done that on our own, so we didn’t get back on the bus.

    Christmas lights and movies on a Saturday night during the first NYC snowfall of winter. The best way to see the most! The elevated view of the lights, storefronts, and thousands of people on 5th Avenue was spectacular. Gingerbread cookies and improv comedy from our guide made the evening. Couldn't fix the traffic jams, but a better check-in system could be! No fun standing in rain for 20min to a half hour. Need to scan physical tickets and allow on busses immediately. That said, exceptional circumstances were in play. Cheers!!
