I have given this review a poor because although we enjoyed the visit to Southfork very much indeed, the visit was spoiled by the terrible state of the horses feet at the ranch. It didn't look as if they had been trimmed properly for a very long time. The miniature pony's feet were particularly bad but all the horses we... More

"If you ever watched TV soap opera "Dallas", it will be fun for you to visit this place. You will hear interesting stories about making some of the scenes, how this house was picked up to be the place for filming it etc. Lots of memorabilia in and around the house." These three sentences are cut and pasted from another... More

A rather surreal experience walking around the Southfork ranch so familiar to Dallas fans. Even my husband, no Dallas fan, enjoyed the experience. The tour is good but it is important to note that all the indoor shots of the series were filmed in California. However it was great fun to sit on that ever so windy terrace, stand on... More

I love this place and the people who run the trail rides! The trail rides are fantastic and the wranglers are wonderful. Plus you receive tons of history about the ranch and the tv series Dallas.

As a Dallas fan, I convinced my husband to take me to visit South Fork during our honeymoon road trip. We weren't quite sure what to expect but were definitely not disappointed. The admission price was reasonable and the gift shop had some great memorabilia. You are taken to the house by shuttle and we had a great tour guide... More

I really enjoyed going to Southfork Ranch. I have to be honest, I've never seen an episode of the old show, I've never seen an episode of the reboot. But my Dad is a fan of the show, so we thought, we have to go here. I think the tour was very good. You drove around the grounds, and then... More

Having not really ever been a fan of the tv show Dallas I guess most of this tour was lost on me. My husband is a fan and therefore the reason we visited. The entrance is like any other tourist trap, tickets available through the gift shop where you then get to see some memorabilia though not before having the... More

Very disappointed that none of the original shows were filmed inside. Rooms were copied at California studios. Outsides shots were filmed at South fork. The kitchen has been repainted, doesn't even have the same staircase as in show. Some of the house was used for the newer show which meant nothing to me. it was somewhat exciting imagining the different... More
