My husband and I visited in August/September of 2023. The tour was amazing and the operator was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. All the sites were easy access and we never felt rushed. We especially enjoyed the drive on Iron Mountain Road and Needles Highway. We had a rental car for the week of our vacation but I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the sights with no hassle of driving.
Excellent tour, you won't be disappointed!

This tour was fantastic! Everything was expertly organized and our Tour Guide/Driver Dan was outstanding! He made the day great! The variety show was one of the best I have seen. Bus was exceptionally clean. All in all an A+++ day. Thank you all as I know it takes a village to make that all happen seamlessly!

We had the most amazing day. Our bus driver (Pastor Dan) was simply amazing. The food was top notch and we laughed so hard during the dinner show, my sides hurt.

Mt. Rushmore. Breath taking. Bill our bus driver was the best guide we have ever had. Knowledgeable.
Wonderful experience, well worth the money.
Dora_R, Sep 2023
The bus tour went to all the sights that we wanted to explore and it was so much easier than trying to do it on our own. Billy shared lots of history and was a great guide. The after dinner show was much better than I had expected. Don't hesitate to do this.
Awesome! Tour highly recommend it

The view of Mount Rushmore from front, side, back and every angle possible! Our Tour Guide, Gary was very knowledgeable, he manoeuvred the bus through tunnels that were the same size as the bus with ease! And he kept us entertained for the full 8 hours with a stream of dad jokes haha
Clint the great!!!
PATRICIA_W, Sep 2023
If you want a great tour guide, ask for Clint. He was so informative, and made the trip well worth it. He handled the coach in all the hair pin turns, and wedged thru the tunnels. A lot of fun.
Out of the clouds

The monument was covered with clouds. The driver told us to wait it would clear. Sure enough it was very dramatic. Dan our guide/ driver was great.
Great experience

Miriam_W, Sep 2023
This was fabulous from start to finish. The breakfast was great and we were serenaded by a wonderful pianist/singer. While waiting for the tour to begin I was able to make a toilet paper rope. The tour leader Pastor was great. He knew so much about the history of the area and he was so fun. He was funny and engaging. His pace was great and we saw everything! The day ended with a great dinner and concert. I have not one complaint or critique. It was the best!
Glad we booked!
Douglas_P, Sep 2023
