    Learning new things about Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse are things we will remember. There is so much to see with little time with only a day to squeeze everything in. Our guide Julie was great. Very friendly.
    Response from Host, Oct 2023

    Seeing all the wildlife. We saw everything except elk. We have elk in nd so that was ok. Everything was awesome. Cindy was fabulous.
    Response from Host, Sep 2023
    Thanks Darren! Cindy sure is fabulous! So glad to hear you enjoyed the day... the elk are pretty secretive, so you won't be alone in missing them. Although it sure is a treat when we do.. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
    Bucket List Adventure
    Christopher_C, Sep 2023
    This private tour is the way to go. Just you and your guide! Jennifer was our guide and she was wonderful. We learned and saw so very much. Jennifer was very organized. There was no wasted time. My wife and I loved Mt. Rushmore. It was a "bucket list" activity for both of us. Jennifer prepared a delicious picnic lunch which we had on the shores of Lake Sylvan. The Crazy Horse Monument was quite the site to see. The museum at the Crazy Horse Monument was incredible! And our trip to Custer State Park was packed with all sorts of animal sightings. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone thinking about seeing some the sites in South Dakota.
    Response from Host, Sep 2023
    Thanks Christopher! It is a wonderful way to spend the day, and we are so glad you had a great day out with Jennifer. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review.
    Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer Park Tour
    Julie_M, Aug 2023
    We had a phenomenal with our tour guide Joel. He was at our hotel before us and easy to approach, he looked just as excited as us to go on the tour. He is extremely passionate about South Dakota and it's history. There wasn't a dull moment in our 8.5 hour tour. We need to come back and tour the Badlands with Joel.
    Response from Host, Sep 2023
    You absolutely should come back, ha! Thanks for sharing your experience, we are so glad you got to make the most of your time here and enjoyed your day with Joel.

    Great Black Hills experience!

    The Crazy Horse movie; the herd of buffalo we passed along the road; Needles Highway experience, and, of course, Mount Rushmore! And, our tour guide, Jennifer, was absolutely wonderful!

    Wonderful to hear you had a great day with Jennifer. Thanks for sharing your feedback.
    The best tour for Mount Rushmore
    LEEANN_B, Aug 2023
    Julie, our tour guide was wonderful. It was like being with someone from your own family. She very informative about everything. I found Mount Rushmore so impressive.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Thanks LeeAnn! We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with Julie and she felt like a familiar face!
    Premiere Private Black Hills Tour: well worth the price
    Linda_A, Aug 2023
    Our tour guide, Joel, was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and went out of his way to make sure that we had an enjoyable tour. He took many photographs for us and transferred them to our phones. He also directed us to locations where we could get the best pictures. Joel was able to answer many of our questions related to the history of the area. The highlight of our tour occurred when a herd of approximately 70-80 bison crossed the road in front of us during the Custer State Park wildlife loop. The scenery on the Needles Highway and the views of Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse were spectacular. Our family would strongly recommend the Premiere Private Black Hills Tour: Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Custer State Park. It was a great experience!
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Thanks Linda, I am so glad to hear you had a wonderful time! Even better that you got to see all those Bison, it's so fun when they are roaming around on the roads with us!
    Do it!
    Marcia_H, Aug 2023
    Our tour guide, Steve, was fabulous. I would recommend taking this tour. However, this survey is bothersome.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Thanks Marcia - glad that Steve was able to offer you a fabulous day out! Apologies that Viator is pestering you for a review - we do however appreciate it!
    Wow! Jennifer was the...
    Fred_H, Jul 2023
    Wow! Jennifer was the very best guide we could hope for. I’ve always wanted to see Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We were even lucky enough to see a herd of buffalo, antelope, long horn sheep and prairie dogs. Loved it!
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Thanks Fred! So wonderful to hear you had a great day out with Jennifer.
    Amazing Black Hills
    Rodney_J, Jul 2023
    Cindy our guide was phenomenal. Her knowledge of the Black Hills was welcome because we had zero Black Hills experience. We can now say we are familiar with the area enough that we would like to plan a return trip.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Thanks Rodney! Wonderful to hear that you had a great time with Cindy. We'd love to see you again!
    A private tour worth every dollar.
    Genevieve_M, Jun 2023
    Mt Rushmore was very interesting. We got to see Buffalo that walked right by the car, saw parrie dogs, deer antelopes. Go through the tunnels and needle point. It was awesome!!! My 6 and 9 year old granddaughters enjoyed the experience.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Thanks so much for your review and we are so glad to hear everyone enjoyed the day!
    A must do!

    Steve did a fabulous job with information about the area and the stops. We loved this time of year, he got to slow down and really see the sites.

    Everything on the tour...
    Jeffrey_M, Apr 2023
    Everything on the tour was outstanding. Bob our guide was outstanding also. Highly recommended. Weather was exceptional for the Spring, sunny with very little clouds.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Thanks so much Jeffrey. We are so glad you had an enjoyable day with Bob and enjoyed your time in the Hills. I can't say we had much to do with the weather, but glad SD could deliver for you!
    Everything I expected
    Laura_M, Oct 2022
    Crazy horse, Mt Rushmore, animals in Custer state park. Guide could have been more knowledgeable about little things in the area; population etc. Could have also spoken louder.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thank you for your feedback Laura - we will pass that all on. Glad you got to see all the fantastic things in the area!
    Don't miss it!!!
