Some say it's just a house, but for any Dallas fan it's a house worth seeing. It doesn't seem as big as on TV, but nothing usually does. It's still interesting to see even on the new series running now. The tour was very good, thanks to our guide. She has been there for years, is very knowledgeable about the... More

I grew up watching Dallas, so this was a must visit on my trip to the Dallas/Fort Worth area! Your tour begins with a small, yet informative museum area to the outside tram. The tram takes you around the property to the house. Once inside the house, the tour guide provides some history of the home, ranch, family and tv... More

They have done a nice job with this event center of getting people out of the dense urban area. It has a lot to offer decent sized groups.

I have been watching the old Dallas most of my life and the new DALLAS. I have finally visited South Fork. I think if you see this ranch you will fall in love with Texas. This must be the most beautiful place in Texas. I felt at home in there. The house is decorated on the interior in its original... More

I grew up with my parents watching this show and I was always allowed to watch a few episodes so when the new series came on, I was keen to watch it and have really enjoyed the new series. When we decided to go to Dallas we thought about going to see Southfork but I didnt think my two young... More

Not at all what you imagine it to be....a lot smaller! But very interesting. Didn't realise the inside scenes were not filmed here. Worth a visit for any Dallas fan

I had always been a fan of the show Dallas so I decided to visit. The guides were very informative and as guests we were able to walk around the ranch and the property. It was a step back in time. There was lots of information shared that you would otherwise never know, so all in all a great tour... More

Being in my early 30s, I grew up around the TV show Dallas. My parents watched it as well as aunts and uncles, both sets of grandparents. It's a show that has always been around in my life. I currently watch the TNT reboot as well as several friends near my age who also grew up with their older relatives... More

Visited in June 2013 but forgot to review! Brilliant tour, very informative for fans of the show and quite a bit of memorabilia there that you can look at before you go to the main ranch. The inside of the main house was never actually used for filming during the original series' in the 80's or the new series but... More

My mother used to watch Dallas all of the time. She have always wanted to visit the ranch, so we did. It was wonderful! The property is gorgeous, and it is so peaceful out there. I loved the tour. There was so much that I did not know about the show before visiting. I especially loved that we could wander... More
