A full South Dakota day! - So much fun! Our bus driver made extra stops for pictures and fun stops and was so knowledgeable. It was a very full day and worth every penny. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to see the sights and avoid the driving.

You need to book this tour! - Gary was a fabulous bus driver - friendly, informative and funny! We boarded the bus promptly in the morning and set off on an incredible day of visiting memorable sights. We especially loved people's reactions as our bus was coming through the Eye of the Needle tunnel. They were taking pictures of the bus as it was in the tunnel because most of them probably thought we were going to get stuck but of course, we didn't! The provided meals were quite tasty and filling. Lunch at the Game Lodge at Custer State Park was delicious and reasonably priced. We had the buffet. The entertainment after dinner was excellent. The musicians were very talented and also injected some humor into their performance which was quite hilarious. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to the Black Hills.

Excellent Tour - Driving through the tunnels and learning that you could see Mount Rushmore through the tunnels was interesting. Toby was an excellent driver and very entertaining. The dinner show was a lot of fun, and the food was very good. The tour was well worth the money.

FANTASTIC TOUR AND BUCKET LIST CHECK OFF - I can't say enough good things about this tour. Starting out with an all you can eat breakfast and ending with a cowboy style dinner and variety show. The tour guide, Gary, was a hoot and made our day a memorable one. Mt. Rushmore was unbelievable and a bucket list check off for me. Leaving the driving to someone else on the winding and narrow roads is a must. So much beauty to see and Custer State Park, Sylvan Lake and Crazy Horse were also a highlight. The value of this tour is fantastic.
