“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Be sure to ask for a military discount if you can use it, it wasn't advertised but they do offer it. Tour was pretty short but you are able to walk through the grounds by yourself. We found it very interesting and worth the trip

“Cool to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I was a big fan of the original show in the 80's and this was a must see on our trip to Dallas. The tour gives a history of the house, the show and the family that lived there during the filming.
They have a really nice gift shop and also longhorns out in the fields. It was really cool to see in person! Good parking area.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This should definitely be on a to do list if in the area and you are familiar with the show. Was great seeing the house and pool etc in real life. Provides a brief history of the house which was interesting. Plenty of good photo opportunities. Nice souvenir shop too.

“southfork ranch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

This was totally cool. IF you were a dallas fan it is a totally must see. You get to walk through the home, sit on the balcany and by the pool. Get your picture taken under Jock's picture. I totally loved it.

“Thought it would be corny but it was fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

You really have to be a Dallas TV show fan (either the old or new one) of some kind to enjoy this I think. However, you do get the whole Texas ranch experience even if you don't know the TV show. There was a woman from Australia in our tour group who had never seen the show and she seemed to enjoy herself. If you were ever a fan of the show, I just don't see how you can't enjoy this and it is inexpensive for the experience. Our tour director, Sally, was awesome and had been there for 18 years, knew all the cast members and had fun stories of her personal experiences.
