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

If you have any interest in the show Dallas then you must see this, friendly staff and very knowledgeable, must try BBQ sandwich, a theatre expansion for video clips would be a good idea, these folks really care about the history and heritage of the show

I never watched the TV showed but I went with some people who did. They thoroughly enjoyed it, and the tour guide was as enthusiastic as they come. It had all the iconic scenes that you could relate to. You could stay as long as you wanted and ask as many questions as you wanted and take as many pictures... More

If you watch the TV series you will love Southfork Ranch. It is smaller than it looks on TV and there were a few surprises from the tour guide (I am a fan of the show). There is a museum showing some of the most iconic scenes. Loved it!

This was a very good tour - you can stay as long as you like in the house or other buildings inside the grounds. The guides were very friendly and helpful, taking photos for you willingly. The shop was very good too & quite reasonable prices.

Understand that when you walk around only the exteriors of the original series were filmed here, the interiors were done on a sound stage in Los Angeles, still fun though, what JR's room would have looked like if it had been that room.
