      Reliving the day
      Angelique_B, Feb 2024
      Reliving the scene was a different view. I’ve read many books and seen different movies that describe it, but the tour gives you play by play of the moments leading up to the event.
      Great History Lesson
      Linda_C, Feb 2024
      Learned many facts during the JFK Tour! Enjoyed it, I recommend anyone going on tour, very interesting. Prices were reasonable- AC provided.
      Great trolley ride.
      carol_v, Feb 2024
      The ride through the parade route, and also what happened next information. Very informative. Driver pointed out different places of interest.
      JFK trolley tour
      Nicole_L, Feb 2024
      This was perfect for someone who can’t walk much. We got right on the trolley and they dropped us off right at the same place. It was narrated over a recording, and it was timed perfectly with the landmarks we were passing. Very informative and moving. We saw a lot of the city, too.
      Great tour!
      Carrie_S, Feb 2024
      Loved this tour! Thanks to our driver for being very friendly. We learned a lot and it was just very interesting and informative .
      Pre-recorded but good
      Charnae_M, Feb 2024
      I didn’t know this was a pre-recorded tour but it was neat to see how the driver lined up the tape with the speed of the trolley. It was very thorough in the sense that we make several stops at “landmarks” from the chase of the day JFK was assassinated. You get to follow the path LHO took around downtown Dallas following the act. This takes up most of the tour. I thought it was very interesting. The driver also stopped the tape a couple times to point out things that were interesting that we were passing or to provide more context than the tape. It was a good tour.
      Nice one to find out what happened on that day
      Daria_K, Feb 2024
      We really enjoyed it,a nice ride on a trolley, just to tell you enough about what happened that day. Lisa was a nice guide. You spend an hour on a trolley so you can’t stop and go out,just a quick stops to have a photo from window.
      JFK memorable tour
      Marsha_W, Feb 2024
      This was our first trip to Dallas. The JFK trolley tour is a must to see. The driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The sights seen will always be remembered. This was a senior's group trip and was very impressed and appreciated the new information that was learned. I definitely refer this tour to anyone visiting Dallas.

      Shawn_J, Feb 2024
      Seeing the actual spot of the assassination of JFK. Also, visiting Lee Harvey Oswald’s home. It was interesting to see the theater, and learning more about that eventful day.
      Awesomeness!!

      Great experience. Deanna, our tour guide was excellent. The historical recordings made for a very emotional experience.
      Very pleasantly surprised
      aaron_l, Jan 2024
      I was pleasantly surprised with this tour. This was not your run of the mill tour subject matter. I'm not big on taking pictures but was very compelled to do so with this very interesting tour. The sound system was a bit much, but other than that I give two thumbs up.
      Loved the experience
      Bryan_D, Jan 2024
      Enjoyed our trolley driver’s friendly nature & interesting JFK backstory telling and our entire family also learned so much from recorded story of JFK’s assassination & subsequent Oswald manhunt. We all agreed that it felt like we were living the experience
      JFK Trolly tour Dallas
      Michael_O, Jan 2024
      Great tour just over an hour with lots of information I never knew about. Price was right and guide was pleasant.
      Great experience
      Elnara_A, Jan 2024
      The trolley was comfortable, and the tour was very informative and captivating. During narration the actual recordings from the time was used. We also were able to see the house of Oswald, the hospital and other buildings. The narrator also provided background on Oswald that was tracing his movements after the assassination. The tour guide also pointed out other interesting sights along the way.
      Great experience and wonderful tour guide!
      Sudhir_G, Dec 2023
      This was a wonderful experience. For an hour we seem to have been transported to that day witnessing the sequence of events.
      Great tour! A true historical experience.
      Nancy_B, Dec 2023
      The tour was great. I was visiting Dallas from Florida I went with my brother that has lived in Dallas many years. It was a real eye opener for him. I am big on history and learned so much. The tour guide was great. I highly recommend this tour for tourists and locals. Great value too!

      Paula_M, Dec 2023
      Our driver was awesome!! She was so friendly!! She would point in the direction for us to look & being visually impaired, that was so helpful to me!!!
      Great Experience
      Marcia_E, Dec 2023
      The tour was awesome. Using actual recordings from the time sets the mood. The narrator set the stage on how/why President Kennedy was in Dallas. The background on Oswald was really interesting as was tracing his movements after the assassination was very interesting. Great that the boarding house and other buildings are still there. The tour guide also pointed out other interesting sights along the way.
      Rude trolley driver
      Raj_B, Nov 2023
      We arrived at exactly 10:29 am for the 10:30 am tour. The trolley driver points at my name on her phone and says rudely, "is this you? I'm not even going to try to pronounce it!" I was stunned and shocked at her rude tone of voice, but didn't say anything, just took our seats. Are your trolley drivers allowed to be rude? Did she think that because we are not white tourists and from some foreign country that it's okay to be rude? Isn't that racist behavior? The trolley tour operators need to learn that there will be all kinds of tourists taking such tours and if they want to run this business then they can't be rude and offensive to customers.
      Response from Host, Nov 2023
      First I would like to apologize for your experience with one of our employees. I spoke with the driver and her name is Lisa. She remembers you from Saturday morning. I asked her about this, and she said that she had no idea how to pronounce your last name and did not want to speak it incorrectly and was trying to use humor when she said " I'm not going to attempt to pronounce it" This was not an attempt to be prejudicial or bias in anyway. We have guests from all over the world, Turkey, Japan, France, India, China, Australia etc, and we love seeing everyone. I hope you come back to see us as we would love to show you how warm and welcoming we are here in Dallas.
