We were recently invited to explore the best of Dallas with Best DFW Tours. Although I was born and raised in the Dallas – Fort Worth area, I have never really experienced the city. And, since we recently moved back, I thought it was the perfect opportunity for us to play tourist. Taking in the beautiful sights and learning all about the iconic landmarks showed us just how much this city has to offer. The entire day was wonderful and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Here are some tips to consider for your tour with Best DFW Tours:
- You are driven around in a 15 passenger van which can get very bumpy, that, along with the stop and go traffic can get you car sick – bring dramamine, just in case.
- The tour lasts about 3 hours, you’ll stop half way in for a bathroom break.
- Some of the highlighted areas are: JFK Memorial, Dealey Plaza, Old Red Courthouse, Dallas City Hall,Thanksgiving Square, Pioneer Plaza, Klyde Warren Park, Arts District, Deep Ellum, Bishop Arts District, West End.
- You will not stop at every area mentioned above. We just stopped at a few… each stop is pretty quick. Get out, take a few photos, then back on the van.
- The tour guides are VERY knowledgeable, and friendly! Feel free to ask questions or ask for recommendations
- Although the tour is “family-friendly” it is probably better suited for teens and adults. Younger kids might get bored.
- If you do take your kids, be sure to pack snacks, and entertainment. Also, car seats/booster chairs are not provided or required.
Here are a few photos from our trip:
Dallas Farmers Market
Oswald Rooming House
My absolute favorite part of the tour was the Oswald Rooming House Museum. Then, after touring the museum, we followed the path Lee Harvey Oswald took, after shooting President Kennedy. Our tour guide, John shared information about the events & conspiracy theories sounding the tragic day.
So, whether you are a tourist here for the weekend, or even locals just wanting to spend the day doing something new in Dallas, I encourage you to take this tour, you will not be disappointed.
Now tell me, have you ever done a tour in your own city?
