    My daughter and grandchildren loved this tour. We got to see so many beautiful sights! Our tour guide, Clara, was fantastic and SOOO knowledgable and fun! The kids loved the glow necklaces, bracelets, stickers, etc. and seeing so many holiday lights! The only thing the 4 of us would change would be the length of the tour. They were not super excited about getting hot chocolate and gelato at 10:00....that is just us though...great holiday fun to be always remembered!
