This was our first time in the Black Hills and thought it was a great introduction to the area. Neal, our driver, was very considerate and helpful...answering all of our questions. We enjoyed the Iron Mountain scenic drive over to Mt. Rushmore.

Really enjoyed this tour of Mt Rushmore, Custer Park, and Crazy Horse monument. This is a very reasonably priced tour which includes a lunch at Mt Rushmore. I would recommend this to everyone. Besides seeing the sites, you get background information about what you see.

Mr. Neal was knowledgeable, delightful and handled the bus amazingly. We would recommend this company for your guided travel needs.

Our driver/tour guide, Bruce was great. He was knowledgeable, interesting, funny and a wonderful driver. Still can't figure out how he got the big bus through the small tunnels. Wonderful tour. Eduational, not to be missed. The lunch was ok. Plenty of stops for snacks.

Would have been a good tour, if we were able to see anything. Fog was so thick, couldn't see a thing. NOTHING !!! Tour company should have refunded at least part of our money.

The coach picked us up at the location mentioned, on time and not in a hurry. Bruce, the coach driver told us his name, and he said he would be with us all day. As it turned out, he was Bruce 3/4 day. The company needed the coach in the later afternoon, so we had to be taken back to our starting points by a couple different vans. The company made it seamless. Got to see Crazy Horse, Mt. Rushmore, and Custer National Park, and a voucher for lunch at Mt. Rushmore. Plenty of stops for convenience. Bruce was able to paint a picture of the area that we would not have gotten on our own. All in all, it was a good way to start our stay in the area. P.S. because Bruce toured us through downtown Rapid City, we went back to the downtown a couple of times and really enjoyed it.

I took a bus tour to see Mt Rushmore, Custer Park and Crazy Horse. All were amazing and very enjoyable.

The tour was wonderful. Bruce greeted me at my hotel and was very gracious throughout the entire trip. He was very knowledgeable about the sites and the entire area! The tour moves at a great pace and is finished by around 5PM. If you are looking for great stories while seeing some great historic sites this is the tour for you. I have to tip my hat to Bruce to for making sure there was a large herd of Buffalo on our tour of Custard State Park. I travel all over the country and world and highly recommend this trip especially if Bruce is the driver and tour guide!
