De_D, Dec 2023
The details of history that was as accurate as it could be. Orlando was a great tour guide! That is all
Tim is an excellent tour...
Sachin_G, Dec 2023
Tim is an excellent tour guide who knew more than the typical assassination story. He curated his story based off each location. He made sure there weren’t any questions left unanswered. He knew how to chronologically lay out every part of the story to build the overall assassination. The overall tour was phenomenal. Being a history buff myself, it was a very surreal experience to see the site where a beloved president lost his life. Tim also made us aware of the several conspiracy theories that exist, surrounding the situation.
A must-see if you visit Dallas Texas.

JFK / Oswald the human story: Meeting Patricia Hall at Oswalds Rooming House was exceptional
Ronan_F, Nov 2023
Matt the guide was great. Lots of human stories which gave the context and background to 1960s and even the politics of today. Going to places connected with Oswalds flight and arrest was memorable.
I finally REALLY understand the history of the JFK assassination.
Christi_T, Nov 2023
I finally understand! Obviously I learned about the JFK assassination in high school, but there were elements to the history that I never truly understood. So much was made clear after having taken this tour. And my 19-year-old history buff daughter also really enjoyed herself.
Informative and fun tour

Relieving history

Being in Lee Harvey Oswald’s rooming house. Standing on the grassy knoll and seeing the Book Depository.
Memorable Experience
Ethel_T, Sep 2023
Seeing the actual site of the shooting was emotional for some of us because we recalled the actual date. The rooming house with original furniture and TV show playing was probably the most sobering thing.
The best tour and tour guide I have ever experienced.
Dwight_R, Aug 2023
Our Tour Guide was Dan. He was so enthusiastic about educating our family assassination. His knowledge base and ability to teach was incredible. When we toured the area of the Book Depository Dan walked us through the exact spots where the limo was when each shot was fired. He also took us to the exact spot where Zabruder filmed the assassination. It was such a emotional tour. I am looking forward to returning with additional family and want to have Dan tour them. He is that Good!!!!!!!!!
Tim is Incredible
Kathleen_A, Aug 2023
Tim was awesome. He made you really think to come to your own conclusions. He left nothing out. All my guessing and questions I've had for decades were answered. Through this experience I was able to connect the dots I've been holding for decades
