What makes this tour special
The saying goes that 'everything is bigger in Texas', and so it holds true for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. However, on your private tour of Dallas, you will see how self-contained and walkable it is. On your private walking tour, you will:
Meet your guide at the John Neely Bryan cabin, the person and place to whom the city traces its roots.
Visit Dealey Plaza and the Kennedy Memorial.
Walk to the Dallas West End Historic District to enjoy the charm of tree-lined streets, pavement cafes, and an astounding number of cowboy boot shops per capita.
Pop up to Klyde Warren Park - an urban green space on top of a freeway and see the innovative example of how Dallas has rethought parks.
Pass by the Belo Mansion, where you will get to hear the tales and terrors of Bonny & Clyde.
Wander the Dallas Arts District - with several notable museums including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Crow Collection of Asian Art.
Finish your tour with a light bite of food and drink at a place recommended by your local guide, who will give you insights on the best dining experiences in Dallas, especially for Tex-Mex and Texas Barbecue.
Dallas is more than home to 'America's team'; it's at the epicentre of Texas ranching history. Beginning as nothing more than a trading post by John Neely Bryan, it quickly grew to become an incorporated town, serving as a city-centre to rural inhabitants for hundreds of miles in every direction. By the early 20th century, it had become a banking and industry hub - which it continues to be to this day.
On your private walking tour, your guide will give you the rich history of the Native Americans in the area, the story of settlers, and how immigration continues to be a major theme in the city's story. As you walk, you will see the confluence of cultures and corresponding assimilation - in the public art and in the restaurant scene. As you finish your tour in the Dallas Arts District, enjoy the ways in which the city has soaked up and adopted converging culture.
