We absolutely loved this tour. The meeting place was easy, the bus and staff were well organised upon arrival, there are videos and songs on the tv’s on the bus that really get you into the Christmas vibe. The police were helping to control the...More

Well, hello Memphis TN, thanks for the fantastic review. It was a pleasure having the four of you on tour. I'll look forward to sampling some of that Southern hospitality when I visit the South. Right now I'm headed West for a well earned vacation.

Must see to bring on the holiday spirit! Fun for all. Blocks and blocks of holiday cheer. Hot chocolate and snack trucks nearby. Don't forget your camera.

Dyker heights was not what I expected. The houses with lights were beautiful but I was expecting lights on 70 to 80 percent of the houses and it was probably less than 10 percent of the houses. Tour seemed very unorganized and the windows on...More

This is a fair review of the evening in question. The bus windows were fogged and difficult to see out of, and there is no excuse for this. We have since corrected this annoying problem. The drop-off/Pick-up in DH was disorganized; this was due to...More

Mr. Alfred was a great guy with great knowledge of central park secrets and history, he was very nice, friendly and funny, we had so much fun with him and learned a lot, I'd recommend him to anyone interested in visiting central park.

There is so much to see in NYC and this tour should be on everyone’s “things to do list”! It’s not your typical New York, definitely not the hustle and bustle of Times Square. Instead it’s the beauty of New York at the heart of...More

Thank you so much, Melissa. I would say that the woodpecker has become the star of the tour. I hope it sticks around. If not, I'll have to hire one. It is the star of the North Woods.

My wife and I had a great time on the tour. Fred was very knowledgeable and likeable. We had a blast! The highlight of the tour was when a woodpecker ate right out of Fred's hand. We will definitely be back at the park looking...More

Yes, like you, I've developed a love of birdwatching. This tour is a birders delight. It's a thrill to see animals in the wild. I'm working on my bird identification skills. Thanks for joining me, and taking the time to write a lovely review.
