    What to Expect
    The magnificent Mount Rushmore National Memorial starts your tour, see the famous faces! Our guide will prepare you for entry with some historic facts about the monument’s creation before seeing it for yourselves! Enjoy the museum, gift and sweet shops, even try Thomas Jefferson’s famous ice cream.
    Next stop is Crazy Horse Memorial, to be the worlds largest manmade monument! Learn about the Native American History and the phenomenal carving of this towering monument.
    Leaving Crazy Horse, we continue our scenic drive into Custer State Park to see Sylvan Lake, drive scenic Needles Highway and enjoy a picnic lunch. Onwards to the wildlife loop to see its famous inhabitants; North American bison, deer, pronghorn, prairie dogs, elk, burros and a variety of birds are all commonly spotted!
    Our journey home takes us through Iron Mountain Road, famous for its “pigtail” bridges and numerous rock tunnels blasted to frame Mount Rushmore as we drive through them!
    We finish the day at about 4:30pm with return to your accommodation. Lunch Included, as well as all park and monument entrance fees.

    Wow! Our family had the most exceptional tour with Melina. It was educational, fun and relaxing. My grandsons, daughter and I thought that she made seeing the sights along with her knowledge very exciting. Many thanks Melina!

    We are traveling with older kids ranging in age from 14-21 and it isn't easy keeping them all engaged or happy. Melina was a fantastic guide and kept them all interested. A modern miracle. We spent just the right amount of time at each stop...More

    Our tour was in a 12 passenger Mercedes van (reasonably new, clean and well maintained). The tour operator could accommodate up to 10 passengers for the tour but when we went there were only 4 adults and 2 teenagers.
