What to expect
Your festive experience begins at St. Patrick's Cathedral, a Gothic-style gem that holds the record for one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in the United States. Here, you’ll greet your guide before heading inside to admire celebratory decorations and hear of American holiday traditions.  Then, stroll to the colossal Rockefeller Center and pose for photographs in front of its famous Christmas tree. Proceed to Radio City Music Hall, one of New York’s premier musical venues, before you head to the Bryant Park holiday market, located in Downtown. Browse stalls selling festive foods and artisan Christmas gifts, then marvel at the dramatic window displays on Fifth Avenue, replete with sophisticated boutiques. Your tour concludes outside of one of the world’s most famous department stores, where you’ll hear of the franchise’s history before bidding your guide farewell.

I enjoyed this tour, the guide was knowledgeable and personable. The weather was good for walking and you see that "Big Apple" is not that big.

Biggest Christmas tree I've ever seen!

This was the perfect way to round out a wintertime trip to New York. James is an expert at navigating the crowds around Rockefeller Center, and shared the history of the area in a fun and engaging way. I definitely recommend this tour!

Fantastic tour
Dec 2019 • Friends
This was the perfect kick off to our weekend in NYC. It gave us a good idea of the things we wanted to spend more time looking at later. Also, Joel was a fantastic tour guide! He was very friendly, personable, everyone could always hear what he was saying, and he gave just enough information about each site, but not too much to bore us. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting NYC during the holidays.

Hello, Thank you for the kind words about your tour with Hannah, however we are very confused if you had an enjoyable experience why you only gave us 3 stars If this was a mistake, it can be easily fixed. If there is something you think we can improve upon, please feel free to reach out to our office directly as we are always looking to improve the guest experience.

Holiday tour December 2018
Was concerned about taking this tour due to the crowds but our tour guide James was a great navigator. He was engaging and informative plus he made sure everyone got the pictures they wanted which is key. He also knew a lot about the area and and shared great info. It was nice to share the Christmas season with tourists from all over. Will recommend!

Hello, We're so glad that you enjoyed your Holiday Tour with James! One of the best reasons to take this tour is having help to navigate the midtown holiday crowds, so it's great to hear you think James delivered in that department. We love that you enjoyed sharing the holiday spirit with you fellow tourists. We hope you had a happy and safe holiday and hope to see you again in the future! -The Team at TopDogTours
