About: JFK assassination WALKING TOUR
It's been more than a century since his birth and half-century since his death, but John F. Kennedy remains a formidable presence in politics and popular culture. His image is juxtaposed with that of Lincoln, the other great U.S. President felled by a bullet (sorry, Garfield and McKinley).
JFK's tragic pop icon peers, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, have their worshippers, but JFK's is an utterly unique story -- of family, politics, war brinksmanship, Hollywood hanky-panky, chronic illness, assassination, and a conspiracy subplot that won't die.
JFK was the youngest-ever elected President (age 43), the first Roman Catholic, and the youngest-ever President to die (age 46). Kennedy's legacy is preserved and distorted in countless ways. Politicians quote his speeches, speculate on his good works cut short, or simply invoke his name.
During our tour, we will revisit the events leading up to November 22nd, 1963, and the aftermath of the president’s murder to provide perspective and new insight into the event that changed American history and the world’s political landscape. We will cover Kennedy’s legacy, Lee Oswald, and Jack Ruby's roles in the assassination, and the importance of the Zapruder Film, likely the most famous video ever recorded.
And no visit to the Dealey Plaza is complete without looking at the Xs on Elm and stopping at the grassy knoll. Was there a second shooter? Did Oswald kill Kennedy? Did he act alone? Decide for yourself!

Dealey Plaza / Grassy Knoll
Dallas, TX 75202
Dealey Plaza is a significant part of Dallas history. The site marks the birthplace of Dallas, originally founded by John Neely Bryan in the 1840s. Almost a century later, as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration, the familiar white concrete colonnades and triple underpass were constructed, creating a vehicular park to serve as gateway to the city. The project was spearheaded by civic leader George Bannerman Dealey. After G.B. Dealey died in 1946, a bronze statue to honor him was installed in the park that already bore his name.
School Depository / Sixth Floor Museum

Fantastic Tour Experiences
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.

Accurately 1# JFK Tour
My two daughters and I took the 2 hour JFK walking tour, it was incredible, full of historical facts and interesresting stories. Visiting the Lee Harvey Oswald boarding house was amazing, like stepping back in time. The guide was excited and engaging and kept us entertained the whole time.

The parade, despite the misgivings of everyone around Kennedy, had been a success. Thousands of people stood along the route waving at the president as his car rode past. When the long line of 17 cars made a right on Houston, Nellie Connally tipped her head back to the president and said “Mr. President, you can’t say the people of Dallas don’t love you”...
John Bowden Connally, Jr was born on a cotton farm in Floresville, Texas where, due to his hard, labour intensive lifestyle, he earned the status of “a barefoot boy of mule-plowed furrows”. After earning his law degree at the University of Texas in Austin in 1941, Connally was commissioned into the United States Naval Reserve serving in many major battles in the Pacific Theater ...
At 12:20 p.m., in the basement of the Dallas police station, Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy, was shot to death by Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner.

Here are a few of the most popular questions we are asked during our JFK Tour related to Lee Harvey Oswald.
