It was worth it to pay a visit to the Southpark Ranch; I grew up watching the Dallas serie (Original) since a 7 yrs old boy. An honor in seeing the Ranch and the surroundings. Also great guide from guide Sally, she did a great job, keep up the good job for many more years lady!!! Compliments!!! Big thanks

Southfork has been turned into the typical tourist trap. It is twenty five miles north of Dallas. Buy your tickets in the gift shop and hang out there till your tour time. Jump on board the tram pulled by a tractor for a short ride around the grounds stopping at the "DALLAS" mansion. It looks much larger and opulent on... More

If you are a Dallas TV show fan you will really love this tour. The Museum is priceless!!! You get to take your time viewing old shows and memorabilia that only true fans would love. It was exciting to visit and experience the feel of what it was like to be on the set of the show. The history of... More

As a fan of the original show and the current, I was so pleased I went there, the tour guide I had in the house was amazing, and I just loved every minute of it. As thee are no tours from Dallas to the ranch I stayed at the Southfork hotel and they offer free shuttle and admission. Just loved... More

We grew up watching Dallas as teenagers and on a whim decided to stop at Southfork as we left Dallas on our trip last month. Not expecting much except kitsch, we were pleasantly surprised and felt this really ended up being a highlight of the trip! The included tour was fun and just long enough. The man giving the narrative... More

Located just outside of Dallas is the ranch known as Southfork Ranch. This ranch became famous as the setting of the television program "Dallas". It is now used as a tourist attraction and is owned by the owner of the Forever Living Products Company. Some of the scenes are still being shot at this location and it is possible to... More

The entrance building is big and contains a shop and a small museum, displaying the original and new Dallas stars. The tour group is brought by tram to the Southfork Ranch and the reception over there is wonderful. The first thing you'll hear though is that the interior is not used in the series ! Not even remakes of the... More

Our tour came as part of a stay at the Southfork Hotel so we saved on the $15 dollar admission charge. Reception staff were friendly, advising us of departure time and location of next guided tour. Tractor trailer takes you round a guided tour of the property before you visit the house. Tour guide at house was enthusiastic and professional,... More
