This unique, live narrated bus tour will revisit the events that changed American history on November 22nd, 1963.

A tour that delves into one of the most intriguing mysteries of our time; the history-changing assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This excursion appeals to anyone who has even a passing interest in one of the twentieth century’s most noteworthy tragedies.
Most people are familiar with the Sixth Floor Museum (the site from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the deadly shots), but there are many other places around Dallas associated with the assassination that are just as important. Most of these are completely unknown to the casual observer and their roles remain unmarked to the public, but they are vitally important to understanding what happened that day.
Your tour will visit the grounds of Dealey Plaza and the famous Sixth Floor Museum, of course, but your group will also follow the “trail” of the assassination events. Spellbinding details and the background story leading up to November 22 and beyond will fascinate and captivate you, providing new insight into this tragic, human drama.
You have the option to purchase tickets to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza as part of the tour. We will leave you at the museum's entrance after the 2 hour tour, you can skip the line and go directly to the visitors' desk to collect your headsets equipment for a self-guided tour, the museum visit generally takes 40-60 minutes.

Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. This trip was a key reason for stoping off in Dallas and it did not disappoint. The stop at boarding house that Oswald stayed in was creepy but really interesting, meeting the granddaughter of the original owner a highlight. A must do, Thoroughly recommend but make sure you do the museum.

As everyone else says in all of the other comments this tour is fantastic. John is a great guide and very knowledgeable. The way he described everything was organized and well thought out. I learned a lot. The rooming house tour was unique to this tour and very interesting. Do this tour then go to the sixth floor museum.

Family trip to Dallas (11yo and 13yo) wouldn’t be complete without a JFK tour. With the heat, an air conditioned van was a must!! I was hesitant to spend the $$ but it was SOOOO worth it. Our guide was local and was able to share so much information. We toured a few Dallas sites as well as all the important JFK assassination sites.
