1. Dallas: JFK Assassination Tour

Begin the walking tour in Founders Plaza at the Old Wooded Cabin. Learn about the origins of the city Dallas and how it became the 5th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Then, walk to the JFK Memorial, a somber white cenotaph that reflects the emptiness and despair that Americans felt when they heard the news. Discover the untold story of Jackie Kennedy's immense suffering after witnessing her husband's tragic demise. Continue to Dealey Plaza where you will learn, step by step, how that tragic day unfolded. Learn more about the life of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Decide for yourself if he acted alone or if he was part of a wider conspiracy to assassinate the 35th President of the United States. Stand in the very place where Abraham Zapruder captured the famous footage of the assassination, and see where "X" marks the spot on the road where the bullet struck its fatal blow. Finish the tour on the Grassy Knoll where some witnesses said they heard a second shot and saw a "puff of smoke" rising from behind the fence. As our tour ends, you are encouraged to visit The Sixth Floor Museum to continue the journey into the darkest day in Dallas's history. Your guide will help you purchase tickets on the day.

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.

Tom our guide was excellent. Very welcoming and knowledgeable. Took our time with the tour and there was lots of places to sit down as we stopped at each location. I’ve been on a few of these walks and this was definitely one of the best. Simple, easy, educational and fun. He had a folder with photos to show us as we walked around which were relevant and helped explain a lot. Highly recommended if in the area.

We spontaneously booked this tour and were also the only ones.. so it had something individual.. We had nice stops at the hotspots of Dallas, of course John F Kennedy couldn't be missing. It was a very convenient way to discover the city.. I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour

Anthony was wonderful! Tons of information to give. Great group control. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Excellent information with kind and funny delivery. Well worth every penny.
