What people are saying about Dallas

The tour that we took with Preston was amazing. I learned so much, it was so interesting to see the roaming house, the book depository, Dealy Plaza, grassy knoll, all the things I’ve heard about since I was two years old. He was super knowledgeable and told us about all the conspiracy theories, and what his thoughts were. He made this tour amazing and I appreciate his hard work! I totally recommend this tour!

Our guide, Preston, had a wealth of knowledge about JFK’s assassination and Lee Harvey Oswald. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and museum visit. I highly recommend this tour, and Preston. I got the impression that he may have only shared with us a fraction of what he actually knows, but the information he did provide was enlightening.

Dan was great! He is very knowledgeable and his passion for what he does shows. He made me really think about all the conspiracies I’ve heard through the years. We had my 4 month old grand daughter with us and he was so accommodating and commented on how good she was through the tour. All four of us loved the tour and Dan!

Dan was our tour guide and well worth requesting. This tour was more than we expected. It was a personal tour with a historian. We got to experience a play-by-play of the events that took place leading up to the tragedy, during the fateful event, and after with historic details.

I would highly recommend the tour. Matt spun a good story and kept it interesting. We loved meeting Pat at the rooming house too. So cool!
