The circumstances that surrounded the JFK / LBJ visit to Dallas Nov. '63, and the subsequent assassination of John F. Kennedy that followed, were brought to life through the magic of the tour guide "Mike". Actually, not magic but an outstanding oral recitation and tour combination made you feel like you were there the day it happened. Everything listed on... More

I took the hop on hop off tour. Nice tour. Only complaint was we got picked up in a trolley but the pictures at the ticket kiosk showed open double decker bus (which has been my experience on similar tours in other cities). They probably should make it more clear that you will or will not get a bus vs... More

An hour long tour which went past the rooming house where Oswald lived, where Officer Tibbits was shot by Oswald and the Theater where he was caught. The way the tour guild did the tour it felt like we were back in that time period. Money well spent

We took the JFK Trolley Tour before we went inside the Sixth Story JFK Museum. Very fascinating to take the presidential route leading to the tragedy and then following Oswald's steps afterwards and the theater where he was ultimately captured and the building he was killed was great. The tour lasted about 60 minutes and our tour guide was excellent.

Our driver did an excellent job of showing the sites and pointing out historical moments in Dallas History. We had just completed the 6th Floor Museum and thoroughly enjoyed the Trolly Tour for the next 80 minutes. Highly recommend it as an excellent overview to downtown Dallas.

Took part in both these tours yesterday (October 24th) and it was myself and my father, Canadians on our first time in Dallas. We went downtown that day without any plan of which tour we were going to take but wanted to do something that would show us the city as well as something that would take us around the... More

We arrived in Dallas the day of a huge football thing, so the city was packed. And so were the tour buses. Bought the 3 day pass and were able to take the trolley tour with Mike, the expert on everything Kennedy. Now the Kennedy assassination tour is NOT the same as the big bus tour. They cover two different... More

This was an awesome tour that provided a lot of details that I had never heard concerning the assassination of John F Kennedy. Traveling the route as the driver described the details of the day made me feel like I was there on that sad day. The driver's details and knowledge was phenomenal. His storytelling capabilities were extraordinary and the... More
