Get into the spirit of the holiday season by visiting four of New York's most festive traditional holiday markets. This four-hour walking tour leads you under dazzling Christmas light displays on your way to these bustling seasonal markets. With their dizzying array of handcrafted goods, local art, desserts, fashionable winter attire, traditional food and warm Christmas drinks, they're the perfect places to pick up gifts for loved ones, and maybe even for yourself. Along the way, you'll see movie sites from Home Alone 2, Elf, and New Year's Eve. You'll also pass stellar department store window displays at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman and Tiffany & Co., as well as the impressive Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the iconic St. Patrick's Cathedral and the UNICEF Snowflake, the world's largest chandelier.
Children are welcome on the tour, but please bear in mind that some children have a limited attention span and, therefore, a four-hour tour may not be appropriate for them. Parents know their children best and should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing and walking, please consider this when deciding whether the tours are appropriate for your child. Also, the tours require a certain level of physical stamina.
