The tour was exciting, entertaining and very informative. We visited all the important points in Dallas and also had the opportunity to get out and take photos. Our guide explained everything to us and we could also ask. The small group size makes it very familiar and you have enough time for photos. I can only recommend this tour to everyone. And for every fan of the Ewings, a visit to the Southfork Ranch is a must. It is a special feeling to be in this house. A really great excursion.

Good walk, the excellent guide; However, what I did not like is that despite being small groups, they add passengers who have other tours, who paid for simple and lower-priced tours, in such a way that they have to return to where the tour started for the others and repeat several times the things for them to understand, when small groups should start and finish together, since the cost is higher than those that go up only for one part and thus you cannot enjoy the tour at 100%.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the JFK shooting and the aftermath that followed the November 22. Being a retired law enforcement I got a step by step crime scene synopsis. He was also very cordial towards us visitors. My hat goes out to him.

Very comfortable. Only 3 people, in the morning, in a large vehicle. We saw all the higlights of the city and we could stop to see more detail or take pictures if we wanted. The afternoon, JKF tour, great.

We only got half the tour due to an ice storm, but the JFK assassination tour was fantastic. Matthew was a great guide and very personable. Highly recommend.
