How it goes down↓
Registration takes place at the bus at the pick up location.
Bus will be decorated all 'Christmassy', holiday music will be playing and complimentary hot choc is provided.
We drive to 3 or 4 different locations, mainly big neighborhood displays.
At each location we stop and let everyone off the bus. Stretch your legs, refill your hot choc, walk around and check out the lights.
20 minutes later - everyone back on the bus and off to the next display.

Q: Where are the dates?
A: Please see the link marked 'dates' at the top of this page.
Q: Can I bring food and beverages along?
A: Yes, passengers are welcome to bring some supplies for the journey. We will be providing hot choc but if you want cookies, coffee, beer or wine etc you need to bring your own. HOWEVER - this is a general public family orientated event. You may only bring small amounts as space is limited and you must remain respectful of others. We reserve the right to refuse entry if this isn't followed.
Q: Can I bring Grandma or Baby along?
A: Yes, but remember this is a walking tour. We stop at each location and get off. Space is limited and we don't want to be overloaded with strollers. Passengers with too much baggage may be asked to leave some behind. Children under the age of 3 are FREE.
Q: I have a large Family; can we get on the same bus and can we all sit up top?
A: Seating on each bus is limited. We will make every effort to accommodate groups together however we don't guaranty it. If you have a particularly large group perhaps consider a private booking. Seating arrangements are done on a first come first served basis. If you want to sit up-top, get there early. Remember it's a walking tour so we all get the same views anyhow.
Q: What if it rains?
A: Rain and holiday lights do not mix. On rainy evenings most of the large displays turn their light OFF and it makes for a lousy tour. If, on the day of the tour, by 5.00pm it is, or looks like it soon will rain - tour CANCELLED. We will send last minute emails and phone calls notifying of the cancelation. We will do our best to reschedule the tour for another night.
