We arrived in Deadwood at 8:30 a.m. and had to wait until 3 p.m. to register at our hotel so we took the time to really explore the shops and museums and learn some of the history of this beautiful, old west town. Out of all our stops going through South Dakota, this was our favorite. We visited the Number... More

Be sure to take this tour, it's the best one in town. Also, the people that run it are really great, too. The other tour bus is good and there's a stagecoach tour available, but costlier.

Our driver, Mike, was a fountain of information and also very entertaining. This tour on an old school bus takes you through all of the sights of historic Deadwood and will provide you with an overview of things to return to for a closer look. A "don't miss".

We went on the Original Deadwood Tour outside of the Midnight Star Hotel, owned by Kevin Costner. We climbed onto an older bus (school bus), and right from the start, it was great. The driver and tour guide Dave was awesome -- the guy's just a hoot !! We were shown around the town, and stories were very humorously explained... More

As many times as I've been to Deadwood, I never took a tour of the town. While traveling this summer, a friend of mine and I took this tour and were NOT disappointed! The tour pointed out the important, historical spots and the tour guide was quite entertaining! I would recommend this tour to anyone that would like to see... More

This was a total waste of money and time. The tour guide was only interested in telling us about his connection with Kevin Costner, and about being invited to his wedding. The tour bus was old, and stuffy. You could not even open the window. He stopped the bus any where he wanted to; there was no traffic. There was... More

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
