JFK assination details of...
Dale_P, Feb 2024
JFK assination details of where and how it happened . Our guide was very informative about the history
JFK Interesting & Southfork fun
Wendy_H, Jan 2024
Dan, our tour guide, was full of energy and information. I found the JFK tour very informative and interesting - addressing all kinds of theories and conspiracies. Southfork was a bit of fun. Our guide around the home was welcoming and shared many stories. There was some excellent memorabilia to look at together with some great old footage of the show.
A Dallas whirlwind tour !

Disappointed that the house on the inside has not been upgraded to match the TV set rooms and the house smelled like mildew.

Southfork Trip for Big Soap fan
James_V, May 2023
Loved seeing the ranch as we were taken by John Deere tractor, very funny. Our van driver William was very entertaining.
Great tour, but the drive was rough
Tiffany_P, Apr 2023
The ranch and tour were great for fans of Dallas. Unfortunately the drive there and back from Dallas was not so great. The driver was nice, but doing at least 90mph and swerving in and out of traffic. Almost hit a car, and a pedestrian. All 4 of us onboard felt unsafe.
Giulio_T, Apr 2023
Clean comfortable bus from Dallas to Southfork, with a fun friendly driver. Small museum at the ranch is good, as is the gift shop. Tour of the house was the highlight, full of original decor and props, with the guide full of interesting facts. Don’t forget to go and see the car on the walk back from the house to the gift shop.

South Fork ranch trip

Easy transfer, knowledgable guide. Arrived on time for main house tour. All in all a good afternoon out
A great outing
Lynne_G, Mar 2023
The ranch and museum were very nostalgic. Best part though was everything we learned about Dallas the city from Preston in the van on our way too and from the ranch.
Get your own transportation
Ruth_F, Feb 2023
Bus driver was a bit a nice person. First of all he spoke very rudely to me and asked mockingly if I spoke English becase I did not know he was taking to me because he was behind me. He stopped on on the way there. HIS decision. Then we were late getting there so we missed the tour by minutes. He told us we could stay in shop or go to museum. Then when tour finished we walked straight back to van. Other 2 in our tour were walking around property. Guide was going nuts and said to lady in shop that they could find their own way back to Dallas by Uber. They came back minutes later because he called them so they did not have a chance to look around. It was the guides fault we got there too late for the 10.15 tour. He never told us we could walk the property before the tour. Ruined the day for all of us. Because of him I would advise people to Uber out themselves. Tour in Southfork was really good
Great trip
