About The Tour

Dallas is known for their Cowboys football team and their cheerleaders, as well as their countless ghost stories, haunted sites, and haunted-houses around the city.

This tour takes you around some of Dallas' most sinister spots. The Journey starts at the West End (where there was a well-known circus full of corpses, body parts, ... Oh dear). From there we will walk to Dealey Plaza, the site of JFK's assassination, as we reflect on the fateful day of November 22nd, 1963 and talk about why this place has evolved to become a dark tourist destination.

We will visit the restless spirits of the Old Red Courthouse and the Hotel Lawrence (both hot spots for paranormal activity!). Further down our journey, we will walk on the grounds of the old cemetery at Pioneer Park (a conglomeration of four graveyards with the remains of several of the city's earliest founders). Our last stop will be in the Oak Cliff neighborhood, where we will take the Dallas Streetcar to the infamous Oswald Rooming House (the location where JFK's alleged assassin was living at the time of the president's murder).

Wonderful tour!

Thanks to Gram our India Jones tour guide, I've now left Dallas with a better understanding of the city history and it's past. The visit to the Oswald Rooming House is an unforgettable and creepy experience.
