"Missing lights"
December 2021
We were in the van for 1.5 hours before we got to the first real place with lights. The driver kept changing direction due to traffic. We understand there was traffic, but to just keep driving around and telling us to look at the city lights and the steam boat as lights was not great. We did not stop at the bakery as it was the last drive of the night but were given a cupcake at the start. Was not a great experience. I imagine if it were a different night, it may have been a better experience.

I am so glad I booked the tour - it was so nice to just sit back & relax! The lights we saw were beautiful! And lights I would not have seen otherwise! The group on the bus was fun! Thoroughly enjoyed the night!

"Christmas Light Tour"
November 2021
Glad we did the tour. Got in to places that we would have missed if tried to do on our own. Guide tried to engage the riders but didn't work very well. So glad we took the tour. Very worth it. Think the advertisement said that we would go to a bakery at the end, but that was not what happened. Cupcake and coffee before you leave was what was given.

Tip: Be on time and ready to ride for a couple of hours with stops. You can not take pictures thru the windows of the bus.

"Branson Holiday Lights Tour"
December 2019
Very easy to book, and the staff at Tripster and VIP were very friendly. The stop at te Branson Hotel was much quicker and at the beginning though the literature said mid-way through. it would have been much better then. Lighting at the VIP location at night is not good, but it is directly across from the Wax Museum. The tour guide was very knowledgable and offered interesting information on the history of Branson. The light shows was really great from the 1 mile starter area to the 2 mile zoo. Though in a large van/shuttle, it would be best to have low back seats for this type of viewing. Some blockage occurs as lights are on both sides.

Tip: The location is accross from the Wax museum and the rurn us right next to a turn to another road. If winter-ish weather, heavy coats not really needed.
