Mike and Joe were excellent tour guides. Very knowledgeable and personable. Highlights of course were seeing heards of buffalo, elk, and of course the beautiful majestic Mount Rushmore. With the vehicle vehicle having open sides it made for great sightseeing. Would highly recommend this trip for anyone.

Great Black Hills Tour
Phil_D, Oct 2023
The tour was great. We were picked up on time and had quite a bit of time to explore each site. An unfortunate cloudy morning was the only downside. The guide was likable and knowledgeable. We would definitely book this tour again.

Hi Phil - Thank you for taking time for your review. I'm happy you enjoyed your tour. Looking forward to your return . . . much more to see. Be Well - Rich

David_M, Oct 2023
Mt. Rushmore must be seen to truly understand its grandeur. Our tour guide Doug was very good and added tidbits that were interesting. The drive afterwards thru the park and surrounding hills was marvelous.

Hello David - You picked a great time to visit. The change of color is happening now. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with Doug. Thanks for your review. Be Well - Rich
Open air but still fun
Gary_G, Sep 2023
Very good guide. Nice trip. There is no woody. Forget photo. You will be in an open air Jeep. 2-4 people may fit in covered cab.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Hi Gary - Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour. We do have several Woody vans but they are popular and not always available, so we substitute with our popular Jeep Gladiators. I recommend that our guests contact us to discuss availability. Thank you again for taking time for your review. Be Well - Rich

Fun day, very informative. Missed seeing sylvan lake, which we thought was part of tour. Lots and lots of 🦬 sitings.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Hi Patricia - There is confusion about the tour you purchased. We offer Public and Private. --"Woody" - Mt Rushmore Bundle - PUBLIC-- This is the itinerary listed on Viator for the tour you purchased. Tour details Total Duration: 8 - 9 hours *Iron Mountain Road, Custer State Park, 30 min *Mount Rushmore National Memorial, 1 hour 15 min *Crazy Horse Memorial, 1 hour 15 minutes *Stockade Lake, 20 minutes *Wildlife Loop Road *Park Visitor Center *Wildlife Loop Road, 20 minutes (NO Sylvan Lake or Needesl) --PRIVATE-- Mount Rushmore/Crazy Horse/Custer State Park -- This is the tour you DID NOT purchase. Total Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes (This tour has Sylvan Lake and Needles Highway.) The private tour is longer, adds attractions and it costs more. Thank you for taking time to review and I'm glad you had a fun tour. Be Well - Rich To Our Future Guests - (Again) Please, please, please read all the information listed on Viator and the invoice they send. This has been an eventful season of third party problems. To avoid errors contact the provider (us) directly to verify what you are purchasing and make sure it's what you want. Thanks and Be Well - Rich
Great Day Yesterday!
Robert_B, Sep 2023
Highly recommend this group. Rich (the owner I believe) was so kind and helpful. He gave us great tips for our ride to Yellowstone after. Doug was our guide and he was great! He networked with employees in the park and was able to get us to a large bison herd who caused a traffic jam…as well as burrows and prairie dogs :) Lunch was very good. Thank you Rich! :)
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Howdy Robert - I enjoyed working with you about your Yellowstone adventure. There are so many wonderful things to see between there and the Hills. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with Doug . . . he told me you were great to travel with. Thank you for your very kind review and hope you can return someday. Be Well - Rich

Had old subs on a picnic table in the sun
Laura_K, Jun 2022
Food was bad and vehicle was falling apart we had old subs on a picnic table in the sun and the roof of the truck was broke and almost hit my granddaughters in the head
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Laura - I'm sorry you did not enjoy your tour. The day did not go as we had planned. Your tour was scheduled for a 9:30am pickup. We had our Red Woody van reserved for the tour. It had been in the shop and it was set for pickup at 9:00am and then to your hotel at 9:30am. That morning you contacted your guide and insisted you wanted an 8:00am start. He informed you that you were scheduled for 9:30am. You insisted on an earlier start. The problem we have is in his acquiescence to your demand. Your guide should not have made the time change. In his hurry to meet your time schedule, your guide selected our Blue Woody. He was unaware that van was scheduled for maintenance to fix a rattle in the top. The top was safe and secure but was noisy. (It is now fixed.) I'm sorry you did not like the food. We provide a choice of either ham or turkey subs. As noted on our tour description "You may bring any food or beverage you like". Be Well - Rich

This was an excellent tour, due to our tour guide, Clay. He was interesting and very informed about the area. I would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Oct 2019
Thank you Virginia for your kind review. I'm very pleased you enjoyed your tour with Clay. Be Well - Rich
Fantastic Day!
MartiKay S, Oct 2019
Clay was fabulous! He picked us up from our condo right on time and then gave us a day we will always remember! Clay is very personable, funny and very knowledgeable about Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills, etc. We saw more than we could have on our own! The history and beauty of the area is fantastic, but to learn all the stories behind the scenes, so to speak, made this trip extra special! HIGHLY recommend Clay!!
Response from Host, Oct 2019
Hi Marti - Thank you for your taking time for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with Clay. He is new with us this year. As a retired rancher from the Badlands of ND he has a wealth of knowledge about the Dakota's. He's a "Jeep Guy" and spends time exploring the Hills in his Wrangler, continuing to learn additional history of the region to share with our guests. I hope you have time to return and tour with us again. Be Well - Rich
