Annual traditions are part of what makes the holiday season so special, and the Richmond Tacky Lights Tour is one of unique ways area residents display their holiday spirit. Each year the houses on the tour up the ante, making the experience feel new every time. That’s what has earned the tour a spotlight on TLC and has made it a popular attraction up and down the East Coast.
When you see the Tacky Lights Tour from our charter buses, you won’t have to navigate traffic or worry about plotting the best route, we’ll handle it all! Whether you’re a seasoned Tacky Lights Tour aficionado or brand-new to the area, the tour experience aboard our buses will quickly make it to the top of your holiday must-do list.
You have your choice of chartering one of our vehicles for your group for a Private Tour or buying individual tickets on one of our Scheduled Tours.
