Wow! This tour is a must for anyone who is vacationing in this area. Matt, our delightful, witty, knowledgeable, and humorous driver and guide made this tour a true delight. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and taken to Fort Hays where we had a chuck wagon breakfast of pancakes and sausage. Then we departed on... More

We found this on T/A and are glad we did. Ther are many who say why do a bus tour, do it yourself. The trip IMO would be a real white knuckle drive as it's very hilly, lots of curves many on the edge of the cliffs and I'm quite sure my focus would have been on the driving, not... More

This was a great tour. Matt, our driver & tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. We had lots of time at Mt Rushmore & Crazy Horse to take pictures, explore and see a video. Fort Hay was fun as well. Enjoyed the Chuck wagon dinner & show. Excellent value.

We cannot say enough GOOD, about our tour yesterday with Mount Rushmore Tours. We went on the 9-hour tour -- picked up at out hotel in Rapid City about 8:00 am and taken out to Fort Hays, the film set for Dances With Wolves. We got to check out the little "town", make a tin pan, watch a rope maker... More

After driving for 3 days from Toronto we stopped at the state info centre and picked up a couple of guide books. We are very happy we decided to let someone else do the driving for the very important visit to Mount Rushmore. The whole day way a joy and Matt or guide was terrific. We know we would have... More

We chose this tour based on previous reviews, and we were very glad we did. The tour itself was wonderful... Matt gave us lots of information and made the day fun and informative. We had enough time at each stop. The movie set town is also interesting, and don't miss the movie exhibit in the tour office. We did have... More

We did the "Mount Rushmore Tour Package" for $99 each. It was well worth it for several reasons. It includes two meals (dinner includes a western music show) and all entry fees to everything. All you have additional is lunch. The Web site for the tour (http://mountrushmoretours.com/Tours/mount-rushmore-tour-package.html) details the itinerary. Matt Pates was our bus driver and gave a wonderful... More

We almost didn't take the tour because we usually like to decide where and how long we will visit sites. Thankfully we decided to take the 9 hour Mount Rushmore Tour which included the Black Hills, Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore and Sylvan Lake (for lunch). Our tour guide/driver, Dan, was awesome! We drove thru tunnels, hair pin... More

Our host at the Holy Smoke Resort in Keystone, SD suggested and booked our (four sorority sisters from AZ) tour with the Fort Hays “Mount Rushmore Tours”. This 9-hour tour, two meals and show was awesome. Our tour guide Matt was very knowledgeable, witty and courteous. This tour encompassed everything from Mt. Rushmore to Custer State Park through the Needles... More

Mount Rushmore Tours is a wonderful way to tour the area when your stay is short. Their new busses are wonderful for a 30ish group. Matt Platte was our driver and he was knowledgable and fun. Coming back to the Fort for our Chuckwagon Dinner and Show was a great way to end a beautiful day. We had a great... More
