About JFK Dine & Walking Tour


While FTA  has plenty of tours to pick from, we chose to attend the JFK tour. This tour begins in the Historic West End where our expert guide took us on a Dallas’ only walking tour of the JFK experience. 


We visited the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza, stood at the grassy knoll assassination site, and more. After we relived history, our tour guide took us on a food tour in West Village - Uptown Dallas. This part of the tour features sit-down restaurant tastings from top knot eateries and bakeries.

Our Thoughts


We rank this tour a 10/10. It is the best and most effective way to visit a vast array of restaurants and see the sights. The FTA team is great at accommodating for those who have dietary restrictions. Gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, carnivore? No problem. Everyone will get to sample menu items. 


Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about historical facts, current events and hidden treasures. They were funny, hospitable, engaging and patient.
