The merry land of Christmas Tours! Santa Clause! Sleigh Bells! Awesome Christmas Light Tours! And Gift Giving!!! Who doesn’t enjoy giving and receiving gifts? Although over the years, the personal side of selecting that one special gift for that special someone has become not so “personal”. We have traded shopping from store to store to gift cards and baskets, not very personable. At Price My Limo, we have tried to make the gift certificates “personal” by adding the person’s name and event and also a special message from you. Come see if you would like to give a certificate for a limousine or party bus to your special someone.
Normally around this time of year, our clients take a limousine with tinted windows to gaze at Christmas lights while enjoying their favorite cider or alcoholic drink.

There are several different places that you can enjoy a tour of lights or you can plan your evening to see several different ones.
