Our guide Johnny made the tour! He told us all the facts and showed us exactly where everything happened. We would recommend this tour as an historical and significant event.
Very interesting story.
This tour was a wonderful, informative, and entertaining experience. Johnny, my tour guide was excellent in giving details on the events leading up to the assassination, the numerous conspiracy theories, showing us where Oswald lived, where he was captured, and taking us down the fateful path. Also, he gave us a historical perspective of the city of Dallas. If I did another tour, I would want Johnny to be my tour guide. He was simply the best.
Danny Evans made this tour "come alive" with his enthusiasm and vast knowledge on the subject. In addition, he was prompt, polite, and seemed to enjoy guiding us through this tragedy. We were in high school in Nov. 22, so experienced and remember many of the events via TV. Thank you Danny!
The tour was interesting and we liked to see all the important parts of the day. However, the driver ruined this trip for my family. First he showed up late and he did not seem interested in having conversations with anyone but the three people who arrived with him at the Kennedy Memorial. My mother is handicapped and unable to walk long distances. To see the grassy knoll he parked by the Kennedy Memorial and we had to walk. That is too far of a distance for her. She had to sit in on a bench in the heat with nothing to drink for over an hour! Then when we arrived at the 6th Floor Museum he received a call and said it was the end of the tour and would not take us back to cars. Once again, a very big inconvenience for someone who his handicapped. It was an awful experience and an embarrassing one for my mother as it was obvious she was left out. We are very upset we were unable to enjoy what could have been a good tour. It was very frustrating and uncomfortable situation.
Excellent tour. Pickup at both ends was on time. The guide was very knowledgeable and had an insight that you don't get from history books, movies or conspiracy theories. Money well spent.
The tour guide was excellent and very passionate about JFK Assassination. We were able to get out and take pictures at several locations. We were very pleased that we were taken to Oswald's boarding house, the theatre which we probably would not have done on our own. I highly recommend this tour. Enjoyed ourselves very much!
This was a great tour. Our guide Alex really knew everything about JFK and what happened. If you would like to have a guided tour with a lot of information and a guide who you can feel lives for the story. You should definitely book this one.
Disappointed. Had huge expectations of this tour but the driver who picked us up just parked the minibus outside the book depository and gave as a running commentary of events before realising he had forgotten to collect another couple. Then we had a recap of all we had already been told to allow other tourists to get up to speed all whilst sitting outside the book depository. Then a whistle stop tour round to see where Lee Harvey Oswald lived having to ask if we could get out of minibus to take photos before then being driven to the theatre where we parked on the opposite side of the road for a quick photo stop before being driven back to the book depository to wander round at will.
This was an amazing experience. Our guide, David was extremely personable and knowledgable. Despite sticking to the facts he was very open to other thoughts, ideas and theories. We saw and stopped at the most important sites including, the book depository, the grassy knoll where JFK was shot, the spot where Officer Tippit was allegedly shot, the movie theatre where Oswald was apprehended and he showed us the building where in the basement Jack Ruby fired the shots that killed Oswald.
David gave us clear explanations of the facts and even showed us pictures. His van was comfortable and clean.
The Dealy Museum was extremely well narrated with awesome pictures and films.
A great afternoon!!!!!Awesome experience!!!!
So glad we did this!
Johnny was brilliant, engaging and informative. The tour added depth to the museum by bringing the events of the day into an embodied present. excellent way of seeing, feeling and understanding.
Tour was excellent and provide a lot more information than just going to the museum.
Our guide was fantastic, had so much local knowledge, shared stories and conspiracy theories and was a great character.
This was interesting in several ways.... First and foremost we got the entire story of the infamous day of November 22 when the President was shot and killed. We got to see every stop on Lee Harvey Oswalds day, and a narrative of what happened when... The grassy knoll, the book store depository, even standing 5 feet from where he fired the shots, and you could see the street below with a big white X where his car was when the first shot hit... where Oswald lived, where he shot JD Tippet, and the movie theatre where he was captured... We traced his steps the entire day. Learned a lot of things I had never heard before, like the connections outside of the assassination that Tippett, Oswald and Ruby had.... The tour guide had lots of the photo reprints of the famous scenes, and proof of what he was telling us.... This tour even included a theory I had never heard before, but I am not a conspiracy theory expert... I would say it was worth the fee, and it includes 90 minutes to go through the museum. although I could have spent at least 2 hours there.
Johnny was very knowledgeable and answered any and all questions we had. The pick up and drop off was super easy and right on time. Thank you Johnny for making Dallas a great place to start the New Year!
A great trip back in time covering all the key areas on the fateful day back in 1963. Extremely knowledgeable guide for the tour
I have always been fascinated by the JFK assassination and it was a personal highlight to go on this tour! The tour guide was passionate about his subject and very knowledgeable as well. It was interesting to hear his theory on whodunnit. A special thanks to Viator who also organized transport back to our hotel - it was appreciated.
I believe the media over the years has sensationalized the physical area concerning the JFK Tragedy. The Grassy Knolls and the quoted Beautiful Historic Downtown District is not a beautiful as one would think. I personally didn't feel safe in Texas Theater area. The driver's story telling, pictures, and theories were excellent. I would of rather sat in a room and listened to his lectures then drive us around in disappointing Dallas.
William was an amazing storyteller! He made us think about what happened that horrible day in a whole new light that totally made sense for the first time. It was more than worth the price of admission if you get him as your guide
Elaine was exceptional. Having grown up in Dallas and lived there at the time of the assassination, she gave a unique perspective on several of the relevant places like the movie theater where Oswald was arrested and personalities particularly Jack Ruby. She's also done some very good research on the subject and has her own set of significant photographs. I wish the company would create an extended tour with her so that one could spend more time soaking up the sense of what happened that day and in the days following JFK's assassination given her unique perspective and insight.
