We took this trip 3 days before the Pre- Sturgis event started and traffic was heavy. The trip includes admission to crazy horse, parking at Mount Rushmore, entertainment, and 2 meals for a little over a hundred. If you do the math and add your gas; this tour is very inexpensive. It lasted for about 9 hours and will take... More

Have to say first that this tour is well worth the cost! Breakfast and supper were good and the entertainment was great. The funny guy is a pastor and I would love to go his church because he is a hoot! Best part was the bus tour with Matt at the wheel...very knowledgable and entertaining! Only bad thing we didn't...

Great trip, amazing views, humorous and knowledge guide! Seats were fine, windows expansive! I highly recommend taking this tour if you want to see the views and not be worried about the road! I was so thankful for the tour! My husband wouldn't have seen anything if he had been driving! In addition, he would have gone back, 1/3 of... More

We started the day with a breakfast consisting of pancakes, biscuits and gravy and juice. There was time for conversation with fellow travelers before boarding the tour bus. The tour bus driver shared many interesting facts about the sites we visited during the day. At each stop, there was ample time to tour the sight. We got back to Fort... More

The tour was outstanding (better than excellent). The Cowboy Breakfast was very good as was the dinner show and entertainment. But the highlight was the bus tour! The bus driver Matt Pate was outstanding - very knowledgeable, funny, entertaining and one hell of a driver. He really knew how to manipulate the tunnels and curves, scaring the hell out of... More

I loved this tour! I would have never had the nerve to drive either the Iron Mountain Road or the Needles Highway. That alone was worth the price of the tour. As a solo traveler you have to focus on the road not on the scenery so this was wonderful. BUT there's so much more. Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument... More

Thank you for the review! You have an excellent point about being a solo traveler and driver in the hills and not being able to see everything that you do this way. Hope you have a safe trip back home! More

8,000 mile US road trip and this was most memorable and best decisions. We took the entire package - big cowboy breakfast, luxury bus tour and dinner and show. Great fun and we let Dan, our tour driver, do the driving. Dan is most knowledgeable and fun to be with. When we thought about gas saved and the fact that... More

We have always wanted to go to Mount Rushmore! We finally did today! Loved our tour starting with breakfast and ending with dinner and show. Seeing Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse was wonderful...
