I booked a guided tour from my hotel, we were dropped at the ranch, where the local guide took us on a tractor-like train and drove us cross the ranch to the house, where another guide showed us the whole property and shared lots of history facts, filming stories and other information. The house and whole property is very well... More

Never really into Dallas as a TV series and therefore not really looking forward to going to visit Southfork Ranch. The weather was awful, very, heavy rain. So the this did not bode well for a pleasant tour. However things did get much better, we had a superb guide who explained how the filming had taken place together with the... More

The grounds are very nice at night with lights around trees and house. The food that was served was very good. Entertainment was provided as this was a private party. The rodeo that they put on for us was very nice.

As a Dallas fan (the original and the 2012) I couldn't wait to visit the Ranch. It didn't disappoint- I loved it. There is a great relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff are very helpful. Even children aged 8&9 (who've never seen the show obviously) had a good time. If you enjoyed the show then you'll love this experience.... More

A blast from the past,... while somethings should be left as a memory and not revisited, this is one place that you should come and see. If you remember who shot JR or a whole season where Bobby was in the shower then this will bring it all flooding back to you. It is just an empty house, the museum... More

If you're looking for something to do that will take about a couple of hours and doesn't cost a lot of money this is well worth your time. If you are Dallas fans you're going to be very captivated by the tour

I absolutely loved the tour. We were there on a freezing cold day and it didn't matter. As we walked around the ranch I put the Tune from Dallas on loudly and had tears rolling down my cheeks, I really felt a part of the whole show. We spent 6 weeks in Texas travelling around in a RV and this... More

Great fun visiting the home of the Ewings. Tractor pulled tram slowly rolls along as the driver announces info. about Southfork. Arrive at the mansion and a guide takes you from room to room w/ interesting nuggets of the show. Our guide was super!! and took pix for us and encouraged us to take pictures and enjoy. We had fun...

Me and my husband took the guided tour but decided to leave the kids because of the price. Adults are $15 plus tax which is above 12 yrs of age and 6-12 are $9 plus tax. The children have never seen the series so it was definitely worth not paying the extra $40 plus. You can visit the museum and... More
