Great tour, great tour guide
Michelle_M, Aug 2023
Julie was wonderful! I wouldn’t have seen as much if I went on my own. My 21 year old daughter enjoyed the tour as well. Great day!

Thanks so much Michelle - I am so glad to hear you had a wonderful day!
Awesome Trip
Dawn_T, Jul 2023
Our driver, Denise was awesome. She was knowledgeable of the area and knew the best stops for the best picture opportunities. The picnic lunch was good and she found a picnic spot that was quiet and away from the crowds. She was helpful in taking our pictures when ever we asked. She also patiently walked back to the car so that I could get the larger lens for my camera to get a closer shot of a big horn sheep that was on one of the tables in the park. She also stopped on the side of the road for me to take a picture of another big horn sheep that was perched on the top of one of the hills in the park. We would highly recommend Denise as a guide.

I want a refund

All the guide wanted to do was look at sheep and deer, even stopped so he could look with binoculars that we couldn’t see
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Hi Joe, wow, we are beyond surprised with your review and so sorry to hear of your disappointment. We will give you a call to understand what about your day was a 1 star experience? From our experience we arranged a custom tour; re-arranging the day for you to visit multiple stops, provided a fresh lunch and opened up in our off season to take you through the Badlands. We spoke about the geology and history of the area at length and allowed for ample time at all the stops requested. Yes, there was a lot of wildlife out being a fall day, most of our guests are very excited to see huge big horn sheep - perhaps we stopped more than you would have liked (which we would have been happy to skip if you said so). I suppose we thought that being a vet that would excite you, sorry to have not met the mark. We are so disappointed that we didn't meet your expectations. We will give you a call to discuss further.
Friendly and informative

Our tour guide, Kevin gave USA detailed and informative tour as well as a great history and geology lesson.
Response from Host, May 2021
Gary - thank you so much for your review, Kevin certainly knows his stuff! Glad you enjoyed the day.
Inattendu. Majestueux. A ne pas manquer.
Michle_M, Jun 2023
Inattendu. Majestueux. Spectacle d'un désert grandiose. Histoire des Amérindiens pas drôle mais à connaître parce que c'est l'Histoire. Une excursion à ne pas manquer. Notre guide Denise très sympathique.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Merci pour votre avis. Très heureux d'apprendre que vous avez passé une agréable journée.
