This tour was all I had hoped it would be and more! Our guide, Tim, had certainly done his research! He told us things about the JFK assassination I had never known before, and took us to every related location in Dallas! The Sixth Floor Museum was the perfect way to end the tour.

My son and I really liked the tour. The guide was fully committed to us and was able to answer all our questions. In addition, he told us insider stories that are not so easy to get. I would like to express my best thanks to Mat on this path.

I loved it. My guide Orlando was knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. We saw so much on the tour and as I recall the JFK day as a youngster in the UK, it was good to set the players/locations in place. Thanks for a great tour!

I had the pleasure of experiencing the Cowboy Stadium Tour and the City Tour all in one day. Our guide/driver, William, was informative and knowledgeable of the local area. I would definitely recommend the Stadium and City Tour.

Ivan was FANTASTIC! True historian with personal connections to many of the Dallas main characters. Polite and professional and fascinating. Highly recommend Ivan !!
