Highlights

During our journey, your tour guide will revisit the events leading up to November 22nd, 1963 and beyond to provide perspective and new insight into this tragic, very human drama. Most people are familiar with the Sixth Floor Museum (the site from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the deadly shots), but we will also show you the many other places around Dallas associated with the assassination that are just as important.

We will also visit the location where Oswald’s infamous rifle picture was taken from (Neely House). We will stop at the Texas Theater where the “alleged murderer” was captured after the assassination of officer Tippit. We will end up our excursion at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, we will provide you with a voucher to gain access to the museum for self-guided tour equipped with headsets.
