The tour was exciting, entertaining and very informative. We visited all the important points in Dallas and also had the opportunity to get out and take photos. Our guide explained everything to us and we could also ask. The small group size makes it very familiar and you have enough time for photos. I can only recommend this tour to everyone. And for every fan of the Ewings, a visit to the Southfork Ranch is a must. It is a special feeling to be in this house. A really great excursion.

Everything was perfect, from the pick up at our hotel to the drop off. Robin is an excellent guide who made us discover the must-sees of Fort Worth with all its history. This private tour delighted the whole family. Thank you Robin
