Please forgive a bit of bragging, but after the huge success of our Sleepy Hollow Halloween Tours, we are proud to now offer our Magical Mystery Holiday Tours. We'll travel back in time to enjoy the magic and mystery of the holidays with one-day getaways to magical Tarrytown and mysterious Sleepy Hollow, New York, that include holiday cheer, sophisticated eats, magical theatrical experiences, gift hunting, and the joy and peace that only a small-town holiday can bring.
We’ll visit beautiful Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, its halls decked in their holiday finery, for A Very Duchess Holiday Tour, described as one of the “Ten Best Historic Holiday Tours” by USA Today. We pay homage to Anna Gould, the Duchess of Talleyrand and Lyndhurst’s final owner. We view the rarely seen children’s toys, holiday dishes, silver, jewels, and clothes that belonged to the Duchess in vignettes of holiday presents and baubles. This is a once-a-year opportunity to see many of the Goulds’s glittering possessions that are usually tucked away.
In Sleepy Hollow, you’ll experience the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge like you never have before! We’ll nestle into the historic Old Dutch Church and let master storyteller Jonathan Kruk, complete with musical accompaniment, regale you with his adaptation of this Charles Dickens classic in Dickens’s A Christmas Carol.
We’ll view the magical holiday lighting on Tarrytown’s charming Main Street, the Main Street of your memories and dreams – and of the movies. You’ll probably feel right at home since many movies you’ve seen have been filmed on this historic street. You can do some old-fashioned Christmas shopping in its unique independent stores while taking in its beauty.
We’ll feast on the savours of the season at Equus Restaurant located in the historic Castle Hotel & Spa in Tarrytown. We’ll enjoy fine dining inspired by local, artisanal farmers in the Hudson Valley, using local and organic products whenever possible while taking in the historic beauty of this grand mansion.
These are just a few of the sights and sounds we’ll experience during our trip back in time to a magical mystery Christmas!
