Continue to Dealey Plaza where you will learn, step by step, how that tragic day unfolded. Learn more about the life of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Decide for yourself if he acted alone or if he was part of a wider conspiracy to assassinate the 35th President of the United States.

Finish the tour on the Grassy Knoll where some witnesses said they heard a second shot and saw a "puff of smoke" rising from behind the fence.

Tom our guide was excellent. Very welcoming and knowledgeable. Took our time with the tour and there was lots of places to sit down as we stopped at each location. I’ve been on a few of these walks and this was definitely one of the best. Simple, easy, educational and fun. He had a folder with photos to show us as we walked around which were relevant and helped explain a lot. Highly recommended if in the area.

Tom was an informed and entertaining guide. He encouraged questions and did a great job answering them. I really liked his use of primary sources (images) to help tell the story of JFK and Jackie. Tom also knew the history of the area and talked about other interesting events that occurred in Dealey Plaza. A must see in Dallas.

Such a great experience!! William was wonderful especially for a history nerd like me; but most of all, he kept the attention of my 12 year old son and was laughing with a smile on his face. 5 stars!!

Anthony was a good tour guide, knowledgeable and friendly, although he didn't sound very well he put in good effort and did a good job

Excellent information with kind and funny delivery. Well worth every penny.
