The tour guide, Dave, was not only very knowledgeable about Deadwood, its history and its characters, but was also very funny. I haven't laughed so much in a long time, a very English sense of humour! The tour takes you throught the town and then up the hill and into Mount Moriah Cemetery where Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane... More

If you have plenty of time, then this is a fun thing to do - but if you're on a tight schedule you could probably get around the sites quicker under your own steam. As to whether the guide / driver is entertaining, well that's down to personal taste - as with most things that are designed to be humorous... More

From start to finish the jokes continued to flow, as did information on the history and characters of Deadwood. Quite an experience and a characterful guide and bus.

We didn't take the tour, so feel free to ignore this. I understand that many people take the tour and enjoy it. For months in advance of our trip, I called the company several times. I understood that they don't do reservations, but I was repeatedly assured that there would be a 3:30 tour on the date we would be... More

We decided we'd do the Original Bus Tour before we even left the UK, me being a KC fan an all. We were in Deadwood on the backend of our month long trip to Montana, Wyoming & South Dakota staying 3 nights at the Lodge at Deadwood which is beautiful, and bonus, right across the road from Tetanka. We took... More

This is an entertaining tour from start to finish. Dave the driver delivers the history of the town with knowledge and humour. To see the tombstones of James Butler Hickok and Calamity Jane brought back memories of the great film of the 50s.

A great tour of Deadwood and the cemetery with lots of History. The best part of this tour was the driver/narrative Dave. He is funny, very quick witted, and very knowledgable about the history Of Deadwood.

There is a limited amount to cover in deadwood, but our guide was great - informative, fun and really personalised the tour for us. Bonus is the old school bus. Excellent value at 10 dollars each - would recommend

If you want to visit Mt. Moriah Cemetery, you should take a bus tour--otherwise you have to park at the foot of the cemetery and walk up...and it's a very steep climb. Our guide was fast talker, very animated, if you like that style. The bus is a very old school bus with no air conditioning. We enjoyed the tour... More
