We spent 4 great days with John, visiting so many great places, we enjoyed finding out about the Bad Lands. Especially enjoyed seeing all the animals. John had so much patience with us going out of his way to help us out including trip to medical centre. Highlights were the wonderful sunset and viewing the night sky in the badlands,... More

Greetings from the northern hemisphere. Thank you for the wonderful review. One thing that I truly enjoy about the review process is that I get to relive the fun things that I got to do. That sunset and starry skies in the badlands was truly a memorable night. Do you remember seeing the three satellites converging in the same small... More

John worked with us before our trip to learn what our interests were and what we were up to physically. He put together an awesome package, of interest to me (into geology), our teenage son and a friend of his (into science and history), and my wife (into nature). He was very knowledgeable and left us with more things to... More

We had a great experience touring the area with our three kids (11, 9, and 9). John and Cindy are as knowledgeable as they are kind; they could answer any question (geology, history, weather, economy, photo angles.... and on :), worked with us to maximize the time we had, and were flexible when changes came up. They made seeing many... More

Amazing 4 days with John and Cindy! We could not have asked for more knowledgeable and passionate guides. From the Black Hills to the Badlands and everything in between, John helped us to make the most of our time. Cindy is just wonderful also. It did not seem like "tours", but rather exciting adventures with good friends. They inspired us... More

Our group of four took a day tour of the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial with Cindy at the wheel. We had a memorable day. She helped us get the "best" pictures, and since we didn't have to drive, we experienced it all in a relaxed manner. It was the best part of our trip through the... More

We enjoyed our GeoTrek Fun Tour during our South Dakota vacation. Our guide Cindy was very pleasant and personable. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the attractions and monuments she showed us. She greatly added to our Mount Rushmore experience, viewing Crazy Horse, Custer State Park and Sylvan Lake. We were also able to enjoy Needles Highway and... More

When I planned the trip to South Dakota, I did not know what else to do but the Badlands National Park with the kids and my parents. So I asked John to guide us. And John took us for 2 days in the history of the area, from the Mammoth site to the Native American history. Very knowledgeable about the... More

Just came back from visiting Mt. Rushmore (August 28). When using Trip Advisor, we discovered GeofunTrek as a highly rated guide for seeing the Mt. Rushmore area. We were not disappointed. John was prompt, knowledgeable of the area, answered all of our questions, regardless of how silly they may have been. John had arranged our trip to minimize crowds and... More
