  • Wall Drug - The famous Wall Drug and the family story behind it! Here what makes this such as success and why you must visit, even if it is just to get one of their unbelievably delicious donuts! Our last civilized stop before heading into the beautiful Badlands.
  • Badlands National Park - The Badlands National Park is one of the most underrated parks in the system. Its other worldly spires, layers, winding roads, shadows, colors and history make it extraordinary to visit.
  • Badlands Wall - As we enter the park we’ll stop at a location we feel is best for viewing the sunset to see the light change the colors of the soil and cast shadows that made Frank Lloyd Wright say it was his favorite National Park. Picnic Blankets, Folding Chairs, Drinks, Photography, video and more are offered as we take it all in.

The much anticipated tour that did not happen. - I would like to give a 5 star rating. BUT we never actually took the tour. It seems that Viator never forwarded my booking, which I had paid in full for, onto the local operator. Therefore we were left waiting for our guide and tour for 2 hours until we confirmed that someone had dropped the ball. So sad.

Two Amazing Tours - We had two tours with My XO Adventures. The first was the Badlands Golden Hour Tour (Originally was to be the night tour, but Daniel and his mom bumped us up due to the weather. Which was really awesome of them.) and it was an amazing tour. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the Badlands and made sure we saw the best parts of it. Absolutely beautiful and awe-inspiring. Could easily spend days exploring the bad lands or just relaxing and listening to nature. Our second tour was Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mt., Sylvan Lake, and Custer State Park. Our tour guide, Kelli, was also very knowledgeable about the parks, not just the history but also the geology (which I really enjoyed). She kept her eye on the weather, both for safety and to make sure we were able to get the best views. The Black Hills were gorgeous, Mount Rushmore fascinating, and Crazy Horse simply amazing. Both tours allowed us to see a number of buffalo, prairie dogs, antelope, and mountain sheep. All in all, we had a great time and would recommend this group to anyone.

Awesome night in S.Dakota. with Z.O. Adventures - Daniel was right on time picking us up, took us out at 3p.m. and it wasn't over until 11p.m. we had a great time, he gave us a wonderful tour. Took care of all our concerns, im a 100% disabled veteran and he made sure our tour went smooth and made sure we were aware of everything around us. The star gazing was awesome and we will most likely do it again on our next trip up to SOUTH DAKOTA. Thanks again for everything Daniel and you can bet I highly recommend Daniel and his tours with XO Adventures.

Perfect sunset - We were able to see parts of the badlands that we wouldn’t have seen if we would’ve ventured out alone. Our tour guide got us in great places to see the different formations and the perfect sunset watching place.

Amazing experience - XO Adventures was the best - We have loved all of our tours, but this tour was so much more. It was a true personal experience. Daniel was so personable and informative. He took us to some less traveled areas at the exact right time of day for beautiful sunsets. He even set up chairs for us to experience the full sunset. We were able to see the colors change and it gave the Badlands such different look. The breeze and the solitude were a moment to remember. Highly recommend this tour and company!

The best city tour you'll get! - My husband and I were the only people on this tour so we got an EXCELLENT one-on-one tour with Daniel. He is super knowledgeable about Sarasota and its history, but not at all boring! He speaks very clearly, the van was super clean and comfortable. Need a restaurant recommendation........he's got that covered. too. HOLY MOLY! We had a great time! And hearing about you and Rocky........

A superb experience. Period. - I cannot say enough about this experience. While visiting my parents recently, we decided to take a day in Sarasota. I never had seen the city and wanted to get as much out of it as I could with the limited time we had. A TOUR!, we decided. We were back and forth between My XO Adventures and other typical trolley tour companies. After debate and reading reviews, we settled on the Sarasota Sensations tour by My XO Adventures. We did find it strange that almost every review of this company seemed to mention "Daniel", but we rolled the dice and booked a morning tour. What a pleasant time we had. Daniel, we find out, IS essentially the company. We drove into Sarasota, parked at a garage and Daniel pulled up to the meeting spot in a very professional and very comfortable passenger van. He proceeded to take us all around Sarasota, walked us all around the Ringling grounds and drove us through many areas of Sarasota that the trolley tours couldn't even possibly navigate, even if they wanted to. We never felt rushed, and Daniel had so much experiential knowledge about the city that we would be lucky if we could retain even half of it. He gave us all the skinny on the best places to eat and drink and truly treated us like VIPs. I highly recommend this company!

Super Satisfied Sarasota Sensations Participant - Sarasota Sensations is fabulous way to get to know Sarasota and its fascinating history! The tour led by the owner of My XO Adventures, Daniel Milks, was entertaining and highly informative. Daniel has lived in Sarasota for over 25 years and has thoroughly researched the history of the area. The tour of the grounds of the Ringling mansion was a highlight of the tour. The mansion and the Ringlings came alive through the many fascinating stories that Daniel related. This tour is a "must-do" for those wanting to know the amazing history of Sarasota.
