Explore the highlights of downtown Dallas, packed with historic and cultural landmarks, on this immersive private welcome tour with an expert guide. With its epic skyscrapers, buzzing cosmopolitan metropolis, and vibrant food and arts scene, Dallas very much lives up to the saying “Everything is bigger in Texas”!

Beginning as nothing more than a trading post created by the presbyterian farmer and lawyer John Neely Bryan in 1840, it quickly grew to become an incorporated town, serving as a city centre to rural inhabitants for hundreds of miles in every direction.

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 along its streets and thoroughfares lined with skyscrapers, boutiques, upmarket bars and restaurants, galleries and music venues, you will see the confluence of many cultures.
