    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza, 646 Main St, Dallas, TX 75202, USA

    The John F. Kennedy Memorial was the first memorial by famed American architect and Kennedy family friend Philip Johnson, and was approved by Jacqueline Kennedy. Johnson called it "a place of quiet refuge, an enclosed place of thought and contemplation separated from the city around, but near the sky and earth." Dallas raised $200,000 for the memorial by August 1964, entirely from 50,000 individual donations contributed by private citizens.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Dealey Plaza National Historic Landmark District, 500 Main St, Dallas, TX 75202-3521

    Called the "birthplace of Dallas". It was the location of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963. The Dealey Plaza Historic District was named a National Historic Landmark in 1993 to preserve Dealey Plaza, street rights-of-way, buildings and structures by the plaza visible from the assassination site, that have been identified as witness locations or as possible locations for assassins.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Grassy Knoll, Elm St, Dallas, TX 75202

    The grassy knoll is a small, sloping hill inside the Dealey Plaza and adjacent by the former Texas School Book Depository. It became well known following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The knoll was above Kennedy and to his right (west and north) during the assassination on November 22, 1963.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Oswald Rooming House Museums, 1026 N Beckley Ave, Dallas, TX 75203, USA

    This walking tour includes exclusive access to Oswald's Rooming House (we will arrive to the house using the city's streetcar). This is the place where Lee Harvey Oswald was living at the time of the president’s assassination. We will also visit the location where Oswald’s infamous rifle picture was taken.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: 214 W Neely St, Dallas, TX 75208, USA

    We will visit the Neely House, the place where the incriminating photograph which showed Lee Harvey Oswald in his backyard, holding the same type of rifle used to assassinate President John F. Kennedy was taken.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: The Texas Theatre, 231 W Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208-4510

    Our last stop is at the Texas Theater where the “alleged murderer” was captured. At the end of the walk, you can return with us to Dealey Plaza or stay and explore the Bishop Arts District (we will give you recommendation where to have lunch).

    Take this tour. To have sat on Lee Oswald’s bed and met someone that lived with him for a time was incredible. To have actually stood and filmed in the exact place of the Zapruder film even more so. And thanks to John the guide,...More
