Chris was the absolute best private tour guide. He was so knowledgeable, kind, funny, and an excellent driver. He knew where and when to take us to see the best views. What a great experience! Even my teenage daughters had a great day! I would definitely recommend the private tour!
Amazing Experience!!!
Michael_A, Nov 2023
Our tour guide (John) was absolutely amazing! Not only did he 100% fulfill our travel needs as for as navigating our trip. He was a fountain of knowledge and information that took our trip from seeing the sites, to living the experience. Would not hesitate to recommend him and his company for any travel in the South Dakota area!

Had a great time, our guide was very much on the ball with all his information etc...he brought us to a Lodge with a buffet lunch...we went behind the scenes at Crazy Horse because of an extra donation ...overall great tour..Rod and Elsa
Fantastic Tour!! Don't miss it.
Marge_G, Sep 2023
This tour was worth every penny spent. They communicated with us as soon as we booked this tour with Viator and called us the day before to touch base on where we were to meet. Chris, our tour guide, was fantastic. He explained the full days itinerary beginning with Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mountain and finally Custer State Park. He asked park rangers where the bison were that day in Custers Park, and we were not disappointed. He would stop the car to show us wild donkeys, big horn sheep and prairie dogs. Mt Rushmore, the highlight of the trip was a very humbling experience. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you, Chris!!

Riding through a herd of Buffalo, taking our time spending time on the things of interest to us, getting knowledgeable Information from Chris our guide
Best tour ever.
Deva_W, Aug 2023
My one son said the best part of the tour was the donkeys for the other it was the tour guide Chris. Chris brought everything to life on the trip. His knowledge of the area really enhances the experience. Learning about the history of Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse that you are not going to find in history books or online. We even had some other people ask clarifying questions to Chris as he was telling us the history. Only downside is that we were not able to tip electronically. Would have definitely tipped him more. We would definitely take the tour again with Chris.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Deva, Thank you for the great review. I had a really great time taking you and your two sons through the hills. Chris

Martha_J, Jul 2023
Mt. Rushmore, our guide was very knowledgeable about things & made our trip very interesting. At Custer park he went out of his way to find bison for us to see. I would make this tour again.
impeccable knowledge of the area
Suzanne_A, Jun 2023
Chris was one of the best guides we have ever encountered. After many years traveling the world, it is hard these days to find someone actually good at what they do in the tourism industry in 2023. Chris has so much knowledge of the area. As history enthusiasts, we ask a lot of questions, he answered all of them with facts and confidence. truly was a very very memorable experience we wont forget and would do it again when we return.
