JFK Assassination Tour
Of course, the tour will include walking Dealey Plaza, covering both the history of the Plaza itself, along with the events of November 22, 1963. We can tailor the length of the tour to fit your needs, and time constraints.
We will provide transportation for up to 4 people to various related locations. We can also provide larger vehicles, or even a coach bus for up to 50 people if your group should require it.
You should also plan on going through The Sixth Floor Exhibit at Dealey Plaza, either just before, or just after the tour. (A tour through the exhibit is annoying to the other patrons, so silence is the rule.)
Additionally, the tour will include the Oak Cliff sites, where Oswald lived, the shooting of Officer J. D. Tippit, and the escape and arrest of Oswald. Optional areas of Oak Cliff include various houses in which the Oswalds lived, the apartment house where Jack Ruby lived, and other locations of interest.
Depending on your time requirements, we can also include Love Field and the Motorcade Route, the former house of Edwin Walker, Parkland Hospital, and the Dallas Trade Mart. Naturally, we will also swing by the Dallas Police Department where Oswald was shot. The tour can also be tailored (time permitting) to include the former Ruth Paine house, as well as Rose Hill Cemetery, where Oswald is buried. Other locations of interest are often added, as our guest’s interests are determined.

The Old Texas School Book Depository
This building, located at 411 Elm St, is the spot from where shots were fired that ultimately took the life of President John F. Kennedy. The sixth floor and east window of the Texas School Book Depository are now a major tourist attraction and a powerful reminder of this fateful day.
Dealey Plaza and the Grassy Knoll
As you move further along, you’ll reach Dealey Plaza, which is considered by many as “the most famous plaza in America”. It’s here where witnesses heard gunfire that seemingly came from multiple directions, leading to speculation of a possible second shooter. You’ll also get to see the infamous grassy knoll that has long captivated visitors with its mysterious allure.
The Oak Cliff Boarding House
Lee Harvey Oswald stayed at the Oak Cliff boarding house before his arrest. On this stop, you’ll get to explore this dwelling and gain deeper insight into Oswald’s movements prior to his apprehension.
Scene of Officer J.D. Tippit’s Slaying
Shortly after the assassination, Officer J.D Tippit was killed in Oak Cliff under mysterious circumstances. The tour brings you to the exact location where he was slain and provides a rich narrative about the events that occurred after Kennedy’s passing.
The Texas Theater
This historic theater is where Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended by law enforcement officers mere hours after Kennedy’s death. During the tour, you’ll be able to observe a recreation of the theater and gain greater insight into Oswald’s apprehension.
The Old Dallas City Jail
After being arrested at the Texas Theater, Oswald was detained at this very jail. Learn more about Oswald’s time spent here and come away with a different perspective on justice and civil liberties.
The Former Site of the Lee Harvey Oswald Apartment
