This being our first trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota, you helped us experience Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the local area in a way we never could have done on our own. It was a pleasure meeting other tourists to the area, thanks to Sheila's welcoming nature and offering to help us and others... More

Bruce, our guide, picked us up at our camp ground. We spent a wonderful full day, with a very knowledgable guide. The day started with a tour of downtown Custer, then on to Custer National Park, with sites of Sylvan lake, the narrows, wild bison, antelope, prairie dogs and other park animals. Mt. Rushmore was phenomenal, with ample time to... More

Great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery. You miss so much when you are driving, especially in an area that you aren't familiar with. Our guide B. J. Knew everything about the area. His knowledge and humor made the tour perfect.

After driving around the area for a few days, it was time to let someone else take over. That someone for us was Golden Circle Tours; and I have to say that it was an excellent choice. The price of the tour includes the entrance fees for Needles Highway, Mt. Rushmore, and the Chief Crazy Horse Monument. The transportation used... More

I did this tour with my 12 high school students during our 2 day stay in Iceland. The tour was incredibly interesting, informative and a great experience for people visiting the country. My jetlagged students had enough physical things to do, resting time taking in the surroundings from the bus, and lots of great info. Gunna was a good tour... More

The tour guide was very good and had lots to say during the ride but we couldn't hear him in the back of the van....reason was intercom/radio was not working. Also it was very cumbersome getting in and out of the van...reason was seat belt straps were going every which way and blocked movement, If you use this tour operator... More

We were fortunate enough to have Sheila as our tour guide. She was outstanding. She was kind, funny, patient, knowledgeable, cheerful, and a good driver. She anticipated all of our needs including taking us on a picnic for our lunch time. The company itself showed honesty and was considerate of our needs!

Bruce our driver was knowledgeable and did a great job with our tour. We had a great time. I would recommend this tour highly. We would love to... More

I choose Golden Circle because I wanted a van (not a bus) and fewer people. Our tour guide Kathy picked us up at our hotel right on time (in fact a little early) and our adventure began. There was 1 other couple on the tour with us so it was like having a private guide. Kathy has lived in the... More
