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

My wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to tour the Black Hills with Cynthia. From the time she picked us up to the end of the tour Cynthia made us feel like family. Her knowledge of the area is impeccable. Since we were the only customers for the day she tailored the tour to fit our needs. I have... More

We spent the day with John touring the sites of the Black Hills and it was a fantastic experience. None of us (family of 4 - 2 girls (6 &9)) had been to the area before and John helped me determine what we could see on our day together and it worked great. He was easy to communicate both before...

Jennie, It was a pleasure to share this region with you and your family. Finding the bison can be a challenge, but there are many ways to find them. It never ceases to amaze and satisfy me when a day unfolds and it all works out in the end. Take care with your future travels and we hope to see... More

The 'Heart in the Black Hills' tour was the highlight of my trip to South Dakota. It was an all-day tour where we visited Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and Custer State Park. John conveyed a great deal of knowledge on the geology, wildlife, history and Native American culture of the area. I'll definitely contact GeoFunTrek the next time I... More

Don, It was wonderful to spend a day in a geologically-diverse area like the Black Hills with someone who understands the forces and processes that shaped this magnificent area. Keep in touch and hopefully some day we can go to the Badlands. Thank you, John More

John and Cynthia provide an excellent experience in the Dakotas. Their engaging personalities make the whole experience worthwhile, and their expertise concerning the state and national parks cannot be matched. From the moment they pick you up to the moment they drop you off, the pace, sights, and stops are all up to you - I feel their itinerary is... More

John, I must admit, it was quite a wonderful day in the Badlands! Rarely have so many different animals make their appearance right on cue. The badger was most gracious to make his/her appearance and stalk the prairie dogs for our enjoyment. Keep up your style of travel that yields such great experiences. John More

My husband and I took our almost 13-year-old granddaughter on a weeklong trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota. Touring the Badlands with John Esposti of GeoFun Trek was a great recommendation from the staff at Black Hills Vacations. John is a geologist and great teacher and successful in communicating at many levels. A unique touch is his recitation... More

John Esposti is a veritable fount of knowledge; geology, history, culture, anthropology, paleontology, and poetry (!), all of which he freely dispenses and shares in the most friendly, interesting way. He knows this area like the back of his hand and he goes out of his way to make the tour just what you want. Although his background is technical,... More

It never ceases to amaze me how much the Badlands affect visitors (and myself) in so many amazing ways. Thank you for sharing your experience with me and other guests. Come back and see us again some time and we will visit more amazing places in this great land of ours. Take care and travel safely, John Esposti More
