"Happy Holidays!  My Mom and I just spent the past weekend in NYC (Dec 8-10), and I wanted to take a second to compliment our favorite part of the whole trip…the Friday night Holiday Lights Tour!  Our guide, Juliet, and driver, David, were not only knowledgeable of the city and the perfect holiday sites to visit, but they did so in such a friendly manner, I would have thought they'd had training in southern hospitality! Mom and I have said every year for the past six years that we wanted to see New York at Christmas, and this year we finally made it happen. The Holiday Lights Tour with Juliet and David made the entire trip worth the travels. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!" CW, Hollywood MD
