Mt Rushmore is an amazing place to visit. My family and I enjoyed the peacefulness and lunch together at the cafe.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the black hills and every stop on the itinerary. I would highly recommend this tour with Matt Pates.

Not having ever been to the area before, we decided to take the eight hour tour package which covered the Black Hills, Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse Monument. The tour began with a hearty chuck wagon breakfast at Fort Hays, the tour headquarters. After that, we boarded a large tour bus bound for Mount Rushmore. Matt,our... More

I was traveling with my Dad, and since I would be doing all the driving, I was not anxious to tackle Needles Highway or Iron Mountain Road. I heard they were must-sees but was not looking forward to doing the driving. Mount Rushmore Tours saved the day! We bought the whole package, starting with breakfast, which had the best sausages...

Great day! Matt, our tour guide, was fantastic. The best way too see all the highlights of the Mt. Rushmore area. Dinner was mediocre but the show was fabulous! We expected a hokey western show but instead got an evening of great music. Lots of thrills going through the tunnels!

We just had a great trip to Rapid City, South Dakota. The highlight of the trip was the tour out of Fort Hays with Mount Rushmore Tours. Our driver, Dan was an excellent driver and very knowledgeable of the area. He took us to Mount Rushmore, the Sitting Bull Monument and many interesting places in between. Part of the tour... More

This was one of the best things we did on a 9 day vacation. Matt was a great driver and tour host and by the end of the day we had really experienced the sights around Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park and gained more local knowledge than we ever could have by reading tour guides. This also represents a... More
