Our tour guides name was William, and he was AMAZING!! First, there was great communication. He texted us that morning confirming the location and letting us know what he was driving. He kept pleasant conversation on our way to the stadium, while answering any and all questions I had. He walked us in and made sure we knew where our tour group was and then confirmed when he was meeting us back at the front. The stadium guide was super nice and knowledgeable, and it was cool to be able to get a glimpse behind the scenes. Sadly we weren’t able to go on the field because they had peewee games going, but we did go out on one of the party box patios right by it, so that was cool. Then we met back up with William and did the City Tour. He was so knowledgeable! Before I didn’t know much about Dallas, and now I feel I could right a paper. He was also so entertaining, time went by super fast. Would definitely take another tour. Great introduction to Dallas.

In a concise 1 hr walking tour we learned about the origins of Dallas and much about the JFK Memorial, assassination, Dealey Plaza, Grassy Knoll, Old Red Courthouse and 6th Floor museum. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great overview for my guests - a 16 year old from Spain and a 12 year old.

My guide was Preston. He had expert knowledge of the Dallas area. He even sung us a country song on the way home. A very passionate guy, who you can tell loves his job. I would highly recommend the tour company. Luke
