Many of us like to drive around and check out numerous Christmas displays in the Valley, but that's not the easiest thing to do when you're behind the wheel.

Now a Scottsdale company has it all taken care of for you. Just sit back in style and leave the driving to Maxim Limousine. They'll take you to the holiday light hotspots.

"Celebration of Lights in the Chandler area is one of the most popular destinations," said Kristin Shellum with Maxim. "It takes about an hour to tour that. Some others take only 20 minutes, so that gives you a good amount of time."

There's a ton of Limousine services in the Valley, but Shellum said Maxim is different.

"You're not just booking a light tour. We're going to decorate the vehicle and give you some hot cocoa and making sure this is a great event for you and your family, not just a limo ride."

The tour, if taken between Monday and Thursday, for 10 people is about $400 for a three hour tour. The price goes up to $400 on weekend tours, which last about four hours.

Christina Jagnandan with Maxim said a lot of the business comes from out-of-town visitors who don't want anything to do with driving in unfamiliar territory but they want the holiday experience.

"We have sedans, vans, SUVs, mini-coaches and we suggest locations for tourists. We ship out a newsletter to give them options."

If Halloween is any indication, this should be a banner holiday for Maxim after hauling zombies to haunted houses across the Valley.
