      Very Interesting tour - highly recommended
      The tour of Dallas was really worth it - interesting and educational. Great way to learn about the city. William the tour guide was a fountain of information. The Cowboys Stadium tour was brilliant. Lots of access to the inside rooms, locker rooms and other facilities.

      Third tour with Fun Tours and each was unique and the guides just great. Tim, Ivan and Dan all 5 out of 5..try separating them boss as the 3 of them are equally fantastic in the unique individual way Fort Worth with dan was great, as with Tim and Ivan they knew their town and presented their tours with a unique enthusiasm as well as humour. Fort Worth is so different to Dallas and well worth joining this tour to get the contract Thank you to all 3 of you for making my shortened Dallas trip memorable Best wishes from this well travelled Ozzie

    Our family of 10 took a driving/walking JFK tour with Preston. It included walking the JFK memorial, Dealey Plaza and surrounding buildings. The van tour included the motorcade drive, Oswald’s boarding house, site of officer Tibbits shooting, and the Texan movie theatre site of Oswald’s capture. We ended the tour at the 6th Floor Museum at the Texas Book Depository which was included in the price of the tour. The tour was very informative and our guide was full of interesting facts and knowledgeable about the history of events. This was great for our group of both grandparents and teens. We would highly recommend!!

    Our guide did a good job of showing us the city and explaining the events of the assassination. However, we were very disappointed to be ticketed $150.00 by the parking attendant for not leaving a parking receipt in the dashboard of our car. We parked where the guide directed us to park which was where he met us and felt he should have advised of this rule. He became defensive and blamed us for this error. We spent the money we would have used on a tip to pay an unnecessary parking ticket which soured the experience.

    Johnny was a terrific tour guide. He took us through every step of the assassination, following the the route taken by Osward,from the shooting, all the way to his capture and murder by Jack Ruby. He was able to offer up new perspectives toward the actions taken by not only Osward, by also JD Tippet and Ruby. This tour included a detailed examination of the Grassy knoll and the School Book Depository Museum. Also included was a visit inside the Rooming house where Osward was staying prior to the shooting. JOHNNY made this tour a "Must see" attraction in Dallas.

    We had Johnny as our time guide and it's so nice to have a local as your guide. He gave us so much history which even included his family seeing President Kennedy on part of the parade route.

    Johnny taught us so much about history and by walking in the area he gave us a great perspective.

    The tour includes the Sixth Floor Museum admission so it's best to park right next to the museum, address 411 Elm St, and pay a flat fee of $10 for the day.

    Took my family on a tour with Johnny. He was entertaining and knowledgeable. All of us had a great afternoon and would definitely recommend the tour to others. Driving tour was roughly 3 hours - encourage you to bring along a bottle of water and/or snacks if kids are involved. My 9 year old was a bit board but my 10 year old and 17 year old were completely fascinated. Having the drive through Dallas gave a greater appreciation for the time we spend in the museum afterwards. GREAT TRIP!

    This was first time to Dallas. My number one priority was going to see Dealey Plaza in person. I booked the JFK Assassination Tour not knowing what to expect. And wow, it certainly exceeded expectations. The tour guide started by giving an explanation of Dealey Plaza and its history as Dallas’ beginning point. We then went to the boarding home where Lee Harvey Oswald lived. As an extra bonus, the owner of the home cam into the living room. She was 11 when Oswald lived there and knew him. It was the highlight of the tour. We went to every other point in Dallas that held significance on that day in 1963. The tour ended at the 6th Floor Museum where the fatal shots originated.

    I can’t recommend this tour enough. You will not be disappointed.

    This is a must for history buffs. Our tour guide, Johnny, was very knowledgeable. He provided great insights that truly brought that historical event to life as we rode along the same parade route as the president and traced the final steps of Lee Harvey Oswald. The Rooming House is an amazing frozen-in-time landmark run by a woman who actually knew Oswald. The museum complements the tour with in-depth context of the 1960s, the Kennedys, the assassination and the aftermath, as well as several theories about the motivation and parties involved. Definitely go on this tour and be sure Johnny is your guide!

    All afternoon tour with Johnny, our tour guide, was a fascinating deep dive into the events of November 22, 1963.

    We reviewed the eyewitness testimony of theses that saw the activities that played out from the School Book Repository, the grassy knoll, Lee Harvey Oswald’s place of residence, and Oak Cliff.

    The afternoon was topped off by a visit to the JFK museum where a multimedia presentation and display replayed the official version of the events of that day. An informative and interesting day!

    Fantastic tour! Johnny was not only well versed and informative, but funny and entertaining. He also was very accommodating with concern for our comfort and enjoyment. Cost included a small group tour with van transportation to the sites. Plenty of opportunity to get outside of the van and walk points of interest. It also included a ticket to the Book Depository Museum. I would definitely recommend this. It was our best experience of our entire trip to Texas.

    This was my first time to Dallas and I didn't really want to do the touristy thing of taking a tour like this. Boy, am I glad I was wrong. This turned out to be much better than I expected. Our guide, Preston, was an absolute gem. He was very knowledgeable about the facts behind the Kennedy assassination, as well as the history of Dallas, which was a bonus when driving between stops.

    He left current politics out of the presentation, but was fair and factual with the politics of the 50s and 60s leading up to the event.

    And he even included details about how the locals reacted and felt about the attention the city got at the time, something that is never talked about when discussing events like this. It makes it feel more personal and allows us to really imagine it beyond just seeing it on TV. And while I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, seeing the area in person forces you to ask questions about the assassination you may not have thought to ask before.

    And the combo of walking and riding is a plus, as too much of either tends to wear people out.

    If every Fun Dallas Tour is like this one, they are all worth checking out.
