What people are saying about Texas

This was a great tour with a great guide (Dan, I believe). He was extremely informative and seemed to thoroughly enjoy imparting his knowledge, all the while driving through Dallas traffic! Because of his vivid descriptions and information as well as the fact we were driving the same route JFK took that fateful day, he made it seem as real as possible and easy to imagine. Being able to go into the rooming house LHO stayed at was an added bonus; it was like stepping into a time machine. Overall, take the tour; it's well worth it.

It was smaller than I expected and the tram tours take about an hour for the Blue tour but it doesn't feel like you see much, they are included in the ticket price so still worth taking.

In spite of the rain our guide Kevin gave us a fantastic tour and commentary of the fateful day. Kevin was informative and entertaining. Great tour!!!!

A great tour back in time to Nov 22,1963. The tour guide was very informative and at times humorous. Ask for Johnny as your guide.

Experience that left me speechless and now I share my stories. Childhood dream turned into reality. ✨
