“… if anybody really wanted to shoot the President of the United States, it was not a very difficult job – all one had to do was get in a high building…with a telescopic rifle…” - John F Kennedy, comments to Kenneth O’Donnell, November 22, 1963
On this 60 minute tour you will walk the path that President John F Kennedy’s motorcade took as it rendezvoused with history. See the Texas Book Depository and hear the despicable tale of Lee Harvey Oswalds plot to kill the leader of the free world. You’ll stand on the Grassey Knoll and judge for yourself if Oswald was the sole perpetrator or if there was a second shooter part of a mass conspiracy. Hear the often untold story of Jackie Kennedy’s immense suffering after witnessing her husbands murder. How she suffered from undiagnosed PTSD and even wanted to take her own life! Combine your 60 minute tour with a ticket to the Sixth Floor Museum to complete this immersive experience.

Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? After 45 years people still ask this question. How could a man who was an average shot possibly pull of one of the evilest deeds in history? You will follow the same route that President Kennedy did on that fateful day and as you turn the corner from Main Street onto Houston Street, you will see the book depository in plain sight!
"We in this country, in this generation, are — by destiny rather than choice — the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility — that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint — and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of “peace on earth, good will toward men.” That must always be our goal — and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. For as was written long ago: “except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”
- Part of the speech the President was to give that day.
The 6th floor window where Oswald was perched was an easy shot as the motorcade was moving toward him, but he waited until they turned on to Elm Street and was headed AWAY from him. Why? Were there other shooters on the Grassy Knoll ready to box the Presidential limousine in, leaving no escape? All this and more will be answered on this tour.
