My group of 7 took the night tour on Saturday 12/21/19. We were very excited about seeing all the great lights. The tour started on time and we headed straight to the farm in Wake Forest. Upon arrival at the farm, we met massive traffic entering the farm and basically were stuck in that traffic for over an hour. Once we finally made it in, we were only allowed 5 minutes for a quick bathroom break before we had to leave, Honestly, I can't tell you what the light display was like because I didn't get a chance to enjoy it. As we headed back to Raleigh, the lights were out at one of the other stops because it was so late. I think that it should have anticipated that the traffic would be heavy since this was the Saturday before Christmas. I would not recommend tour.

My family and I took the tour on Saturday evening, December 28, at 8:30 pm. Our first stop was a large light display on Old Stage near Ten Ten. When we arrived, the tour guide was told that a bus had damaged the light tunnel at the beginning of the display and that they were closing down for the night. We sat on the street and watched the lights for a few minutes at most before everything went black. Perhaps a radio call could have alerted our driver to avoid this site and move on to another location. After leaving Old Stage, we traveled to another private home where we sat on the street and observed the lights for the duration of one Christmas carol before moving on. At this point, we were told by our tour guide that we were so far ahead of schedule that we had time to stop at the new Sheetz in Cary if anyone needed to use the restroom. We actually spent the most time out of the entire "tour" parked at the Sheetz. Two passengers got off along with the driver. The driver was the last to return to the trolley with a water bottle for herself and a Diet Coke for the tour guide. Why was it necessary to stop for a bathroom break on a 1 1/2 hour tour you might ask? Because the tour guide liberally filled and refilled plastic cups with champagne for anyone over the age of 21 who wished to drink. I felt this was in very poor taste considering most of these individuals would soon be getting off the trolley and behind the wheel of an automobile. I think there were more than a few buzzed drivers that evening. My family and I politely declined the offer to drink. After leaving the Sheetz, we headed back to downtown Raleigh where we drove by the Governor's Mansion before heading back to the "North Pole." We Paid $35 a piece to see 15 minutes worth of Christmas lights and sit in the Sheetz parking lot! VERY DISAPPOINTING!

We spent more time driving than we did actually viewing Christmas lights:(
