  • Excellent experience. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. Awesome experience. This place is made famous by the Ewing Family in the television series Dallas! The place is clean and neat. Facilities are great. Huge parking lot. No need to worry about parking. Great place to visit.
  • I didn’t watch the original shows and only caught a couple of the re boot a few years ago. My friend however was a devotee and was able to answer most of the questions our excellent guide threw at us. Therefore this tour was at the top of her list and she wasn’t disappointed, indeed she is now threatening to make me sit through every single episode. I can now confess to enjoying the tour myself as it is very interesting to see where classic tv is made and the little tricks the crew had to use to get the shots just right, not least how you get quite a small swimming pool to look Olympic size. You’ve got to go, great value too!
