Dallas was founded in 1840 by the presbyterian farmer and lawyer John Neely Bryan, as a humble farming outpost. Today it remains at the heart of Texas ranching history. Dallas has since grown to become a banking and industry hub -  which it continues to be to this day - a thriving multicultural city famous for its sport, culture and Tex-Mex food! 

On your private walking tour, your guide will give you the rich history of the city - the stories of Native American displacement, of ranchers and settlers, of its transformation from cattle ranching to the cosmopolitan city it is today - with a stunning skyline of skyscrapers, a city of affluence, with upmarket shops, hotels and eateries everywhere. 

Dallas became world famous for the infamous events of 22 November 1963 when President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dealey Plaza. You'll walk through the Plaza and stand in the exact place it happened on the Grassy Knoll. 

Your fascinating and immersive tour ends with tickets to the amazing observation deck at the top of the Reunion Tower - with a panoramic view over the city.
