On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President
of the United States, was gunned down in the streets of
Dallas, Texas. Since that time, many people have visited the
scene of the crime to see the 6th floor window of the Texas
School Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly
fired the shots that killed the President. They stand in the
middle of Elm Street where an "X" marks the spot where the
fatal shot struck President Kennedy. Many come just to walk
the "Grassy Knoll" at Dealey Plaza and reflect on that tragic
day in history.
Then there are those who want to learn more about the
events of that day. My tour will lead you through the events
that began on November 22, 1963, from the time President
and Jacqueline Kennedy arrived in Dallas.
This is not a package tour with a set script and schedule.
My standards tours are 3, 4 or 6 hours in length, but we are
also available by the day for those needing an in-depth tour.
Every tour is custom designed for what you want to do and
see. Because you may not be aware of what sites are
available, I have provided examples of what each tour
generally consists of. But, remember, this your tour and
should you want to make changes, I will be happy to do so.
I also offer a 2-hour JFK 101 Tour, but it is very limited in scope and
will only cover a walking tour of the crime scene (Dealey Plaza and
the Grassy Knoll) and a drive-through of the major locations -
Oswald's rooming house, the site where Dallas Police Officer J.D.
Tippit was killed and the Texas Theatre.
DFW Historical Tours has two guides. These guides were raised in
the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and have been historians for many years,
making them well qualified.
For personal tours consisting of 1-3 people, I will provide
transportation. For larger groups, I can schedule transportation for
up to 57 people or step on to your bus or van.
While we specialize in first day evidence and tend to believe there
probably was a conspiracy, we will present all sides of every issue
and welcome any input you may have.
The JFK Assassination Tour is my most requested tour.
