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

My two cousins and I took the basic tour on July 11. The driver picked us up at the hotel in Custer City right on time. Our driver B.J. was a great guy. He had great stories and knew a lot about the area. He stopped at many places to let us take pictures. We were all elderly women and... More

All you can see will take your breath away, I love especially the geiser area. And the waterfall with the rainbow is incredible, I had thought that maybe that kind of tour you had to dedicate more time because is too much. But I had very short time.

We were picked up at our motel in Keystone at 8:30 AM for the "basic tour". Byron, at the office, estimated that this tour would take 7 1/2 hours. Although we are not complaining, it took 9 hours. (I decided not to take the same tour via Gray Line because they quoted a 9 hour duration). Because it was off... More

We took a day tour through Custer State Park and to Mount Rushmore. We were picked up and dropped off at our motel in Custer. Our driver, Patrick, was both knowledgable and polite. His stories and information about the area were very informative. We had already been to the Crazy Horse Monument so we had him skip it, but it... More

If you are visiting Custer, South Dakota we would recommend Golden Circle tours for their all day tour of the area. They will pick you up at your hotel in a small bus and take you to the spots that as a visitor you would probably either never find or have time to see. Our trip took all day through... More

Our transmission went out and I was stranded in Custer with 6 kids while my husband went to Rapid City. The manager, Byron was the best. We needed a ride back to our cabin about 20 minutes away. Byron offered to take us for the price of gas which was abut $90 less than the other company wanted. When we... More

My husband and I booked a day tour with Golden Circle after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. It was a wonderful day. Our driver/guide, Bruce, was very knowledgeable about the area, the history, and the little extra trivia that really makes it interesting. We were the only ones on the tour for the day and were able to stop for... More
