Holiday Light Tours
Allow Lasting Impressions To Bring You Some Christmas Cheer!
Holiday light displays are an annual tradition viewed by millions every year. We, at Lasting Impressions, invite you to bundle up and share an evening of holiday light splendor with us in the Maryland, Washington D.C. or Pennsylvania areas. We know the best places to view them, and we handle the driving in complete comfort and safety.
We make your event special with a “Happy Holidays” sign on back of the limousine, a Christmas wreath on the front of the limousine (some vehicles excluded), Christmas stockings stuffed with candy canes, a toasty “fireplace” video playing Christmas carols, Red Carpet Service, non-alcoholic champagne toast, sodas, bottled water, ice, movies and a tuxedoed chauffeur.
