Want to take a different Christmas in New York City tour?
Then take a look at the Christmas Lights & Cannoli Tour in December with A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours.
Starting in Manhattan, the three and a half hour tour includes cannoli and cappuccino at an Italian pastry shop in Brooklyn and Dyker Lights, festive homes in Dyker Heights, the Italian-American section of Brooklyn.
During December, 100,000+ people are expected to visit Dyker Heights to see the Christmas lights, thirty foot tall wooden soldiers, animatronic figures and nativity scenes.
Native Brooklynite Tony Muia started the tour in 2006 following the launch of his A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour in the previous year.
“As Brooklynites, we never went to Rockefeller Center to see the tree (at Christmas),” says Muia.
“We’d drive around Dyker Heights to see the most amazing displays in the world and then go for cannoli and cappuccino.”
The Christmas Lights & Cannoli Tour will run nightly in December from Friday, December 2nd to Friday, December 30th, 2011.
