Mike is the best tour guide we've ever experienced! Fabulous story telling skills that made the hour tour fly by. We were on the edge of our seats following the events that transpired that fateful day. His enthusiasm provided the most captivating history lesson we've ever sat through. We stumbled upon this tour not expecting much, but plan on taking the other side of the family on the same tour on our next trip to Dallas. Definitely worth the money! Better than the museum! Dont forget to ask for Mike and tip him well!!

Great tour!! I have studied and lectured on the JFK assassination for some time. On my first trip to Dallas I decided to take this tour, although it seemed a bit "touristy." It was incredible to travel the same route as the motorcade, see the exact spot where JD Tippet was shot, Oswald's rooming house, the Texas theatre, etc. It really brought history to life. "Mike" the tour guide was exceptional and I really enjoyed his presentation, candor, and enthusiasm. He went the extra mile, even taking us through a tricky shortcut when the regular route was shut down by the police for some reason! I cannot say enough about this tour and "Mike" in particular!!

If you are looking for a JKF assignation tour, the trolly tour is excellent. Mike, our driver was passionate about the story and related seeing the killing of Oswald by Ruby live on TV from his grandmothers home outside Dallas. Great insights and it sticks the facts and lets the conspiracy theories lay quiet. I'd do it again with my kids someday.

This trolley tour is a must and Mike's narration is wonderful. We were transported back in time and were taken to historical locations. If you are of the age that remembers where you were that day in 1963 or not, you will enjoy this tour. Very Impressive.

This trolley tour takes you right back to that immortal day of Nov 22, 1963 from beginning to end.
It is so well done and the narration of the driver and the use of recordings from that time are brilliant. We retraced the complete route of the motorcade, Oswald's return to his boarding house, his shooting of the police officer, his capture in the theatre and his ultimately being shot by Jack Ruby. This is something everyone who grew up in this era should do when in Dallas.
