The tour was very informational and held the attention of my nine year old son. Our guide, Anthony, stuck to the known facts surrounding the assassination and did not get lost down a rabbit hole of conspiracy theories. When asked, he did offer his opinion surrounding the events of that day. I really appreciated that balance. I would highly recommend this tour.

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.

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

The guide was very friendly. What I really liked in contrast to the other tours was the quiet way of this tour.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. The food was delicious.
