The knowledge and...
Coretha_O, Oct 2023
The knowledge and engagement of the tour guide Matt was top notch. The homeowner of the rooming house shed a whole new perspective on LHO.
Preston our tour guide was amazing
Josh_B, Oct 2023
Absolutely loved this tour. Our tour guide Preston was the absolute best and couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Very knowledgeable and the Oswald house was surprisingly the best part to see all the history
Informative and interesting

Jeff_V, Sep 2023
Preston was absolutely amazing - a historian by trade and full of knowledge. Thank you, Preston for the awesome experience!
Memorable experience
Howard_G, Sep 2023
The guide (Matt) was excellent. He was informative and entertaining (loved the singing 😊) The man knows his stuff and delivered the information clearly and with a sense of humour Standing in Dealey Plaza was a surreal experience. I’ve taken an interest in JFK for over 50 years, actually being present at the site of the assassination felt unreal but deeply moving. The 6th floor museum was a great experience although we could’ve done with more time - we arrived at the museum after the tour at 4pm which only gave us an hour before it closed.
Response from Host, Sep 2023

So glad I booked this tour!

Outstanding tour!
Mark_S, Sep 2023
This was a great tour. Preston was knowledgeable, entertaining and covered a lot of details that aren't widely known. Definitely the tour to go on.
Interesting overview of JFK's assassination
Jason_S, Sep 2023
Liked seeing where the assassination took place so you could really see what may have occurred that day. The Sixth Floor museum was ok being able to see the viewpoint of where Oswald like shot from was interesting. We enjoyed the tour!
You won't be disappointed!
Michelle_D, Sep 2023
This was a great tour! Informative, fun, and eye-opening. Great to explore different theories about the suspected conspiracy. Matt, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We even got impressions and some Sinatra. Great job!
Unmissable JFK tour.
Neil_M, Sep 2023
We had a fantastic experience on this tour! Our guide, Orlando, was excellent. He was punctual, very informative, extremely knowledgeable of his subject and great company. This is a tour not to be missed! One of the best we’ve ever taken.
Best little tour in Texas
Russell_G, Aug 2023
I loved everything about it. Guide was fantastic and we got to see everything we needed. Highly recommend.
We will never forget this!!!
Betina_L, Aug 2023
Pricey - but worth everyone of our hard-earned bucks. 3 + hours, that we will NEVER forget. LOTS of new info, even for those, who’ve read/seen it all about the JFK assasination. Our super guide had given up a Vegas career to do this. Our gain, Vegas’ loss. High point and truly unforgettable was visit to LHO’ s rooming house, and meeting the woman who owned the house, and who actually knew Oswald well. Awesome! Like entering a time machine. We cannot recommend this tour enough! Betina/Simon from Denmark

Excellent tour
karenkkct, Aug 2023
Preston was incredible! I have done many “historical” tours around the world and he was MORE than knowledgeable! He is a passionate, unbiased expert! The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because we were in a non air conditioned van. I mean, in record heat (110 degrees, 120 degrees heat index), that was unacceptable.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you for your time and feedback, we strive to be better everyday and will make sure to address the issue with the particular van used, seeing as though all of our vans have air conditioning and we also provide fans for more air flow. Best regards and we hope to have you back soon!
