Tom was an amazing tour guide! I would definitely recommend this walking tour!!

A Fun and Knowledgeable Guide!
Tom is a most interesting character with his opera singing and foreign accents’ imitation. He knows his history and explains it very well. He showed me all the highlights of downtown Dallas, and it was all in all an entertaining experience.
