This tour delves into one of the most intriguing mysteries of our time: the world-changing assassination of President Kennedy. We explore the facts and lay out the incredible coincidences and timing that culminated in the event that shocked the world. In this tour we will walk around 1.5 miles around the West End Historical District, and for the second part of the walk we will take the public streetcar to visit the Oswald Rooming House in the Oak Cliff neighborhood.
During our journey (we will walk around 1.5 miles), your tour guide will revisit the events leading up to November 22nd, 1963 and beyond to provide perspective and new insight into this tragic, very human drama. Most people are familiar with the Sixth Floor Museum (the site from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the deadly shots), but we will also show you the many other places around Dallas associated with the assassination that are just as important.
This walking tour includes exclusive access to Oswald's Rooming House (we will arrive to the house via the Dallas city streetcar). We will also visit the location where Oswald's infamous rifle picture was taken. Our last stop will be at the Texas Theatre where the alleged murderer was captured. At the end of the walk, you can return with us to Dealey Plaza or stay and explore the Bishop Arts District (we will give you recommendations for lunch).
You can purchase an entrance fee to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza as part of this tour. After our tour (2 hours) we will leave you at the museum entrance. You can skip the line and go directly to the visitors’ desk to gain access to the museum and collect your headsets equipment for a self-guided tour. The Sixth floor Museum visit generally takes from 40-60 minutes.

We walked the motorcade route and followed Oswald’s footsteps after the assassination. Great story telling, very interesting. Our tour guide answered our many, many, many, questions and provided great recommendations of things to see and do. Highly recommend.

I participated in the JFK walking tour as well as the Dallas sightseeing tour, and both were terrific! My guide, Isaac, was knowledgeable and energetic, with a southern charm native to the "Lone Star State". These tours were tailored to each group, and the guide was polite and accommodating.

My two daughters and I took the 2 hour JFK walking tour, it was incredible, full of historical facts and interesresting stories. Visiting the boarding house of Lee Harvey Oswald was amazing, like stepping back in time. The guide was excited and engaging and kept us entertained the whole time.
