Best way to start your visit to Dallas. We learned about the history of the city, key landmarks, architectural details we would otherwise miss completely... which made the rest of our visit so much more meaningful. Bryant was a great guide, one of the best we had in our travels.

The DMA is amazing! Spent 2 hours browsing and admiring, after the tour ended. Our tour guide Brian was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. A visit to the DMA is highly recommended if only to see Frederic Edwin Church's The Icebergs, a stunning experience. Dont miss having lunch at the park's food trucks.
