About this event
All aboard Santa’s Sleigh for a festive treat for all! Dream Destinations is proud to offer the best holiday light tour experience around!
No guests under the age of 21 please. Valid ID is required!
Each tour will start out at Hamlin Pub where you can enjoy a meal or beverage (not included in ticket price) before boarding the shuttle to Campus Martius. Boarding will begin at 5:25pm and the shuttle will leave promptly at 5:30pm. The shuttle bus will be as warm as those chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but much of this event will take place outdoors so dress for the weather! Around 6:30pm you will arrive at Campus Martius for a nice outdoor walk enjoying the sights and sounds of Detroit. Don’t miss out on a photo with the giant Christmas tree and the outdoor skating rink! The shuttle bus will remain nearby and depart from Detroit at 7:30 sharp! The next stop on our holiday light tour will be to the Detroit Zoo where you will enjoy the “Wild Lights”. More than five million LED lights will illuminate trees, buildings and 280 sculptures (more than 230 of which are animals) throughout the front half of the Zoo. Experience the magic of the Detroit Zoo as you take in the lights and the sights and enjoy holiday entertainment. The loop will take you approx. 1.5 hours to complete and then you will return to the shuttle for our final departure at 9:30pm. Our final location will be downtown Rochester for a drive through tour of their beautiful shops and lights! You will remain on the bus as you enjoy music and take in the lights! We will then drive back to Hamlin Pub! Upon our arrival the tour is complete. You are welcome to head back to your own vehicles or go inside to keep the Christmas cheer flowing!
This event will be rain, shine, or snow! Unless there are hazardous road conditions that make our event impossible we will carry on!
Shuttle Bus will be provided by Dream Limousines. In the event of mechanical trouble a substitution of a similar type vehicle may occur.
