Great experience for fans of the TV show Dallas. You will learn a lot about the show and it's stars.

If you watch Dallas then this place is a must. You get the history and knowledge from the show right in front of your own eyes. You can see inside the house if you go on the tour and roam the land. it was very cool

Had a great time and learnt a lot. All staff very knowledgable and helpful. Because I was staying at the Southfork hotel I had a free transfer to the ranch and free entry. So glad I've seen the place and learnt the history.

It's just where the series Dallas is filmed. It's a working ranch during its initial humble beginnings. The filming crew shot on location from episode 5 onwards only during the summer months to avoid disturbing the original resident owners of the ranch.

Unless you are a die hard Dallas fan do not bother - it is just a big money making venture for the owner. We were taken from the "centre" to the "house" in a very old decrepit mini bus with dirty seats - needs repalcing. Nothing in the house is real - only the pool and the drive (which was... More

Anyone who recalls watching Dallas in the early days has to visit the Ranch. The details given during the visit by the staff were incredible and very interesting. The house is being shown as if it was the set for the series even though none of the shots were taken indoors but on a set in California. However this did... More

As one of the biggest Dallas fans there is, this has always been a must for me. If any Dallas fan tries to tell you they don't want to scream with excitement as soon as the Ranch comes into view from the road, they're lying! It's a beautiful place too for anyone who isn't a fan as the Ranch is... More

Really think twice before investing your time - if you are younger and especially from Europe you will have hard time finding any value from that visit ...

I used to watch the original Dallas on TV and was hooked on the re-boot (until it was axed) so I was always going to enjoy this trip. My travelling companion has never seen an episode of Dallas so that was more of a challenge. No question this experience is better if you are a fan but it turns out... More
