It was very fascinating, interesting and comical. The driver, Dave, definitely made the tour with his fun personality and insightfulness. Informed us that Kevin Costner actually visits once in a while and if you're lucky enough, you may see him one day. The tour takes you through town and into the cemetary to where Calamity Jane and Bill Hickok are... More

Figured it would be cheesy, and it was...but was also fun. Tour guide Dave reminded me of a less-animated Jim Carrey. The tour is informative, Dave is amusing, and we enjoyed the drive into Mt. Moriah Cemetery. He pointed also out a few things in town that we didn't have on our list to "see," so that added to the... More

Dave was our guide on the school bus tour of Deadwood. Funny and informative guy, you get the highlights of town. I wish the actual town of Deadwood did more with the historical spots though. The places where all the history happened are either closed or very tired. The bus does NOT take you up to Mt. Moriah cemetery and... More

Our guide may have been 3rd gen Deadwood but he needs some retraining. He rushes and slurs his words either out of some misguided attempt to get everything said or poor speech training. Most annoying was his patent dislike of the Calamity Jane myth which he had no trouble expressing. My issue is that if an illiterate woman of that... More

meet the bus on Main St. and tour the town and Mt. Moriah Cemetary. Drive on my tour was a real personality. Kept everyone attention and kept us laughing as well as learning about Deadwood. After the tour I went to the Adams Museum because of comments by the driver. Other tours use air conditioned buses, but I liked the... More

This tour was a great deal of fun and very informative. The guide was born and raised in the area so he was able to add additional anecdotes to the sites and history.

Loved this tour. Our tour guide was very funny and full of fun facts. Make sure you go in the casino to check out all of Keven Costner's costumes!

Our tour guide (forgot his name--gray haired--thinner gentleman) was outstanding! He was VERY funny, and very informative at the same time.

I gave this tour a 4 instead of 5 because the bus did not have air conditioning. However, our guide was great. He was a wealth of information, history and fun. I wish we had taken the tour earlier in the day. If we had we could have gone back to the historical spots he pointed out. We did manage... More
