“What a great tour!”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed 5 days ago
My wife and I live in the DFW area, but still there is always something new to see and do in downtown Dallas. We found this Dallas City Tour through Groupon. It was a great price and sounded like it'd be interesting, and we were right!
The tour attendant, Dianna, was friendly and very helpful. She even held the bus for a few minutes for us while we ran to get there from the TRE!
Ricardo our tour guide was personable, energetic and knowledgeable. He seems to know everything about Dallas, and went out of his way to be sure that all of our questions were answered and that we were able to get all the pictures we wanted, etc. The tour was very unique, stopped at various places for us to get out and look. They even played videos on the topic for us to watch as we took the same route that Oswald took right after he shot President Kennedy. (Of course that was a terrible tragedy, but the tour helps you to understand this part of history and the events that happened immediately after the assassination.)
This Dallas City Tour is very worthwhile and we have recommended it highly to our family and friends.

Excellent tour of Downtown Dallas and the JFK Assassination! Ricardo was our driver and he was superb! The Downtown Dallas tour was very interesting and we learned a lot about the City and Pioneer Park, which is one of the stops. The JFK Assassination tour was amazing. Ricardo takes you through the streets just as the motorcade did in 1963, Ricardo's narration was perfect - his knowledge and enthusiasm made the tour incredibly interesting. Every little detailed was described to perfection! The stop at Lee Harvey Oswald's room at the rooming house was a surprise. The rooming house is exactly as it was in 1963 - an amazing stop that we had not even anticipated. I highly recommend this tour and Ricardo!Visited February 2016

What a great trip we had. Dallas was better than I anticipated, and the Kennedy Assassination tour was by far one of the best I've taken in the USA. I strongly recommend it to history lovers. The tour didn't advertise its full contents, and a last minute surprise was thrown in which pleased me immensely: a visit to the house where Lee Harvey Oswald rented a tiny room while supposedly giving the final strokes to his plan of killing the President. The house remains as it was in 1963. I had a chance to sit in the small living room where newspapers are sprawled on the coffee table, their headlines denoting a mixture of anger and grief. I walked into Oswald's room, and stood next to his bed, and to the armoire where he kept the incriminating rifle. The fact that this heinous crime took place when I was a kid; the fact that I watched the painful news on national television over fifty years ago, and that I now had the chance to go over the timeline of Oswald's final hours as a free man before he was apprehended by the FBI hit me like a ton of bricks because it added intensity to the story. It made Oswald all the more real to me. But was he the killer, or merely a patsy? That's the million dollar question that the optimist in me hopes will one day be answered. In any event, Ricardo, our tour guide and driver was knowledgeable, professional and humorous. I give him (and the tour itself) five stars.

My mom came in for a visit so I booked a tour for us on Dallas City Tour. We had a wonderful trip!!! John was our knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide for the combo trip which covered a little bit about Dallas and a lot about the Kennedy assassination. We couldn't have asked for a better explanation. Riding around in the comfortable small bus, we could look out the windows into the history of Dallas. He also showed some really interesting (and sad) footage on a TV at the front of the bus. Overall, we were very impressed with this high quality and rather inexpensive tour experience. Next time a friend of family member is here visiting from out of town, I will be sure and book again.
