We signed up for this tour just based on the online description and prior reviews and we couldn't have been happier. Rachel, our guide, met us at the meeting spot 15 minutes before the tour was scheduled to begin and since we were the only passengers that day in a small group tour, once we were all on board she began the tour. We not only saw all of the sights promised, we were treated like family along the way. Rachel made sure we knew all kinds of little tidbits about the sights and the history behind them, and she even pointed out things all along our route so we didn't miss anything. We really feel as though we got to know Dallas, and not just the JFK history, because of Rachel and this tour. The visit to Oswald's Rooming House was especially gripping and it is something I would highly recommend for anyone interested in the JFK Assassination history. We literally traced Oswald's steps from the time he crossed the threshhold of his boarding house to retrieve his .38 pistol until the time of his arrest. We felt like we saw everything. The tour culminated at the 6th Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza and that was well worth the time. Plan on spending at least 2 hours there. One caveat - while tickets were included to the 6th Floor museum with this tour, they are actually vouchers and need to be traded for timed entry tickets and we were only able to get tickets for a tour starting 2 hours after we arrived so plan accordingly. We opted to go the next day and it was a good plan since it gave us the rest of the day to do other things and reflect on what we had seen that day before visiting the museum. It made the museum that much more interesting. I couldn't recommend this tour more - everything was perfect. Rachel was a wonderful guide and the van was very comfortable and you could see everything as we drove along. The many stops were wonderful and Rachel made sure we had plenty of photo opportunities. If I could give this tour 6 stars, I would. Make this a must when you visit Dallas.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed Dallas. We are always grateful when we hear that we are a part of making our city of Dallas more enjoyable.

Rachel loves what she does and her passion shows in the quality of her tours.

We will be working with the Sixth Floor Museum for a better option besides the entry vouchers, especially on their busier days.

Very informative and we learned about some things that we didn't know about Dallas in general. Rachel was an excellent driver/tour guide and gave us some very interesting facts about the days surrounding the JFK assassination. The Oswald rooming house as a little surreal...his original bed is still there as well as the furniture that was there back then. Surprised to hear about how many bedrooms/persons were in this rooming house.

The stadium itself is an architectural marvel, and you'll enjoy learning about its size, quality, special features, etc.

But it's even better when you can learn all about it when also being able to run on the field, see the Cowboys locker room, the cheerleader locker room, and all the fun things on this tour. One of our highlights on this trip to Dallas!

The tour was amazing and emotional! Rachel was our tour guide and was punctual in meeting us for the tour. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in the relaying the history and details of the JFK assassination and took pictures of me and my boyfriend at various sites. She also added some additional stops including the metal sculptured cattle drive and some Bonnie and Clyde tidbits. I would highly recommend this tour!
