What you'll do

Christmas is the season of miracles and I'm praying and hoping and having faith that by next Christmas season things will be better! New York is strong. We went through 9/11 and we will get through this with God's help! So let's see New York at Christmas!

We will have a fun and exciting time walking around and exploring the world's most exciting city and the most special time of the year: Christmas in New York. There is quite honestly no place on the planet like New York at Christmas. We will explore some of the most famous and icon New York City Christmas landmarks and have an unforgettable evening. The tour will include all of the following:
-Central Park (including the pond and Home Alone 2 locations)
-The gorgeous and world famous Plaza Hotel
-The sparkling lights along 5th Avenue at some of the most famous stores in the world
-The solemn beauty of St. Patrick's Cathedral (we will explore inside too not just outside)
-The famous Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center (80ft tall and 50,000 lights!)
-NBC studios (where some of your favorite television shows are filled)
-The "winter village" and ice skating rink at beautiful Bryant Park
-The hustle and bustle and amazing lights in Times Square
-Macy's, the largest department store in the world, with the world's most beautiful Christmas windows!

I'm also a fully licensed NYC Tour Guide. I am also a college professor at the City University of New York and passionate about this wonderful city. I've lived here just about my entire life and know all the "Secrets" and the "off the beaten path" locations. I enjoy showing people what a special place New York is. My favorite time of the year in New York and the BEST time of the year is New York at Christmas. This is my brand new "Holiday Lights" tour! I normally conduct the "Full Day NYC See It All Tour," feel free to check out my many five star reviews on that tour. I'm quite honored and humbled that so many people enjoy my tour and so I decided to start this new Christmas in New York tour.

Where you'll be

At each and every location we visit, you will learn "secrets" and fascinating facts you might not know on your own. We will learn about New York City history on this tour and we also spend a lot of time on movie and famous TV show locations. But most of all this is a Christmas tour and we will have a Christmas theme throughout!

Rated 4.88 out of 5 from 8 reviews.

Tim was awesome, best way to get to know the city in a short amount of time! Saved us lots of time by knowing how to get around the city to see a lot of different NYC must see/do spots! :)

This was a fun way to get to see that city at Christmas time. The light show at fifth avenue was nothing I have ever seen before. I enjoyed everything I got to see and thought it was definitely worth it. Timothy was a great tour guide.

If you want to see the hot spots of NYC's christmas time, do this tour. You will see the most important places with beautiful christmas decorations and listen to some interesting background stories. NYC is overwhelming anyway and our brain struggled to process all we experienced, so it could be nice if you have some guided tour through all this craziness.
