What people are saying about Dallas

We wanted to see some of Dallas while we were in the area and this tour was perfect. Our tour guide Anthony took a few minutes to get to know each of us prior to starting the tour. He was friendly and very knowledgably about the Dallas area history. The 10am start for the tour was great because it wasn't too hot yet. The tour took just over an hour and stopped at all the locations we wanted to see. Anthony took the time to let us ask questions and take photos along the way.

Preston Richards from Fun Dallas Tours was wonderful. He is a true historian and it shows. He took the time to take us to the critical areas/stops and gave us the back stories. The tour ended at the museum so his tour made the museum so much the better. Thanks!

Anthony was fabulous. He definitely knew his stuff and taught us several things. It was very hot and he made sure he found shade for us along the tour. He is very knowledgeable and is a perfect tour guide. Well worth it

This particular tour, with guide Matt, was awesome! We learned so much more about the JFK assassination than we could have, had we gone to just a museum.

Johnny was great! He is very knowledgeable and provided top notch service during our tour.
