My wife and I are a little young for Dallas but we both remember our parents enjoying it. We really enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide (the retired police officer) was very energetic and did a great job. We like that after the tour we could wander the grounds and take our time. If you watched Dallas you need to...

I watched many an episode of 'Dallas' and this was a must see once I found out about the tours. I was not disappointed. It was so interesting to learn some of the story behind this ranch, and of course to hear stories about when they filmed here. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and had met some of the... More

I wasn't born until well after 1963, but I was around to watch all the seasons of Dallas, so this was just as important to visit as Dealey Plaza for a Gen X albeit not as profound on a tour of Dallas. Lots of memories of JR and Ewing Clan here. Great to take some photos at the entrance to... More

We visited Southfork in early December for 13 dollars using a voucher we found in a free what's on in Dallas magazine (usually 15). What value for money!! The tour guides are really informative and enthusiastic and give you plenty of time to wander around, take photos and ask questions. The gift shop is well stocked. I loved the tv... More

Even if you were not a fan of the show, this is a great stop to make. It doesn't take very long to tour, but you can spend as much time as you want to explore. Spoiler alert: there was a lot of TV "magic" used for the show so prepare yourself. 😊

Southfork ranch is just as I expected lovely 👍👍👍 $15 entrance fee per adult, and worth every dollar. We visited 29th Nov 2016 and went on the tour. The staff were knowledgeable about the show and the stars of the show. The land surrounding the ranch has horses, miniature horses, longhorn cattle and Llamas. Jock's Lincoln car is there to...

Even if you're not a fan of the TV series, the story behind the ranch and the buildings themselves are well worth a visit. The ranch is available to walk around and is more than just the house from the TV series.

I've never seen a full episode of the show, but we visited based on my wife's desire to check out "the house that JR built". I know JR, but that is the extent of my familiarity with the show. It was a neat experience overall. Everyone on site was good to chat with, helpful. Even if you have never seen... More

I went to the Southfork Ranch with my wife when we were in Dallas. We wanted to attend a few of the local sites - and though this would be a great place to go. It was a really great your place and the staff were all extemely friendly. I would highly recommend spending the $45 on the 45 min... More

I watched the show more than 20 years ago and felt slightly corny when I pursued my husband to go to the Southfork ranch for the day. However I was so pleasantly surprised by the experience that I did not regret it for one second but was actually thrilled to have been there. The staff is really friendly and relaxed.... More
