Our tour guides name was William, and he was AMAZING!! First, there was great communication. He texted us that morning confirming the location and letting us know what he was driving. He kept pleasant conversation on our way to the stadium, while answering any and all questions I had. He walked us in and made sure we knew where our tour group was and then confirmed when he was meeting us back at the front. The stadium guide was super nice and knowledgeable, and it was cool to be able to get a glimpse behind the scenes. Sadly we weren’t able to go on the field because they had peewee games going, but we did go out on one of the party box patios right by it, so that was cool. Then we met back up with William and did the City Tour. He was so knowledgeable! Before I didn’t know much about Dallas, and now I feel I could right a paper. He was also so entertaining, time went by super fast. Would definitely take another tour. Great introduction to Dallas.

I'm from the East Coast & you couldn't walk this very large city so it was good opportunity for an overview. Dan was so knowledgeable, friendly & helpful I would have signed up for another tour he was doing immediately after but for a conflict that arose in my schedule. I learned things I had no idea about, very enjoyable. I already recommended to someone attending conference I'm in Dallas for

Our guide, William, was very knowledgeable and fun. He had lots of info about the Dallas area. He threw in some humor, too.

Great tour of all Dallas neighborhoods. Orlando was knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to spend time with.

Very informative tour! Preston and Orlando get 2 up!
