Very informative and complete.
Our driver was very nice and the tour had a lot information that we didn't even know. It was awesome and I'm happy we decided to do it on our trip to Dallas.
This was by far the best tour I've ever been on. I loved how the bus stopped at each location while explaining the details of what happened on that day. I also loved how a lot of the buildings and houses in the area still look like they did back in the 1960s.
Great tour...very informative!!
It was extremely hot on the trolley
I brought a group of family visiting from out of town. They were interested in JFK and felt that the tour offered them a different experience. The ability to put themselves in the time period. Actually going to the places they had heard about. Plus, they learned from it. The staff was friendly and helpful, as well. I would and have recommended this tour to others.
I’m a student of politics and specifically the presidency. To actually go the route of President Kennedy motorcade and visit some sites related to the events of that day was very touching and emotional
This tour wasn't on the top of my list of things to do in Dallas, but ended up being one of the highlights. I had taken a hop on hop off tour of Dallas the day before and the guide mentioned the JFK tour and her description piqued my interest. The JFK tour turned out to be of great historic value and the narration of that infamous day was very poignant and expertly delivered, literally every step of the way. It was not a long tour so I would encourage adding it to anyone's itinerary while in Dallas.
Every American should go on this tour! They do an excellent job of setting the scene with real audio clips and details you didn’t know
The tour itself was FANTASTIC !!! I would DEFINITELY go again and recommend it to others. The only thing I would do different is I would allow time for people to get off the bus and take pictures. Maybe extend the trip twenty minutes for that. I got some great pics but some bad ones because I was not able to get off of the bus and had to shoot pictures from the bus.
Felt real as if I was there that day on the day in question.
Great tour for the money .
The staff was nice and the tour was very informative. We enjoyed it better than the crowded 6th floor Museum. Think ill tell my friends to skip the 6th floor and take the Trolley ride much more enjoyable.
Very interesting tour.. great driver, she was friendly and fun!
The trip was incredible. The recorded tour was extremely well done and amazing how it coordinated with the physical location of the trolley. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in this part of history.
Wonderful experience, nice and cool trolley, great driver, and could hear narrator perfectly.
I found this tour very interesting, the tour guide was very nice , but the bus had brake problems which was a little scary
Very interesting to be able to visit the places taught in school or read about in books. the small area of the JFK assassination and subsequent search for the killer put the whole thing into perspective. Touring the motorcade and main street area was fun. i would recommend the tour to anyone especially JFK enthusiasts
I really enjoyed this tour. I’d been to Dealy Plaza & the School Book Depository before but not seen any of the sites offered on this tour. I loved it! It really made everything come to life seeing the actual path Oswald followed back to his rooming house, the site where Officer Tippet was gunned down and the Texas Theater. I was unsure about the canned audio presentation but it was excellent, much better than expected. It wasn’t canned, it was the actual audio from the day it all happened. 5 Star tour!!!!

I've taken this tour before with other friends and it was a live tour guide. I can understand using a recorded message and there are quite a few tours each day - but it is just not the same. I did enjoy all other aspects of the tour! I recommend buying your Sixth Floor Museum tickets ahead of time or using your smartphone - don't wait in the ticket line and then the entrance line!
Bus was overcrowded and speaker was too loud.
The tour was quite informative. I wish the tour could have taken us to Parkland Hospital where Kennedy, Oswald and Ruby died.
The JFK Tour was very interesting and fun! I learned so much that I never knew about that fateful day in Dallas! I got to see locations I never had seen before and it was really exciting to hear the live recordings from 1963! Our driver was super and went the extra mile to point out points of interest! If you haven't ever taken this tour, do so, you'll be in for a treat!
Very interesting and informative tour. Maybe the website could be organized a bit better with all of the details of a trip on one page including directions to where to park and then where the bus picks up! I plan to do more tours so would like to see these changes soon! :) Thank you
The tour left on time and the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
I had thought we were going to follow the motorcade route the president went on, but that never happened. On the other hand we went to paces I didn’t, expect but enjoyed a lot.
Very interesting and informative. Darla the guide was very personable. The trolley was comfortable and air conditioning was welcoming.
Great tour! Very informative & interesting.
We didn’t know what to expect and it was one of most visual and interesting tours by far. Between the driver and the excellent taped narrater we traveled back to 1963 down the streets of Dallas where everything played out with the Kennedys that day. The most interesting was following OSwalds steps during and after the shooting through the city streets to his boarding house, the shooting of the police officer. You witness it and see the spot. Then onto his capture in a theater later and we were there. Liked it so much better than the 6 Floor museum experience which so crowded and slow we moved like snails. Cost of trolley tour was not expensive. Got more than we paid for.
Outstanding! We learned more inside stories and things we hadn’t learned from visiting the museum.
