    Mt Rushmore and Highlights of Black Hills
    Excellent choice! Had intended to visit Mt. Rushmore for the evening ceremony on our own, only to find it was no longer available at this time of year. Opted to do a tour so we could learn and experience as much of this iconic site as possible without the fanfare or info shared at the Lowering of the Flag. Randy was informative, friendly and patient. We were 6 seniors, 2 with mobility issues. He was most accommodating, very engaging and a pleasure to learn from and tour with. The drive along Needles Highway and Iron Mt road was both beautiful and exciting. He shared much information about the area, its history and the wildlife. We finished the day with a stop at Sylvan Lake, the perfect spot to take in the view while sharing drinks and snacks.

    Kevin and Joel were excellent. Tour included Mt. Rushmore, Needles, Badlands, and Devil's Tower. Kevin's wife made wonderful turkey sandwiches for lunch.

    Spectacular Trip to the Black Hills
    The private tour for my wife and I covered the Black Hills to include the Mammoth excavation site. We opted not to see the Monuments which we had seen previously. Joel, our tour guide, was an excellent driver with a wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. It was a stress free way to see the Black Hills and to be able to focus on the scenery. He picked excellent pull offs for the best views and made good photography recommendations. This tour was everything that we had expected and hoped it would be.

    Super vacation in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota!
    We had a phenomenal five days with the Black Hills Tour Company! Working with Melina we mapped out a custom experience with each day starting with a scenic and manageable bike ride followed by lunch and sightseeing in the area. Kevin and Randy were entertaining, knowledgeable, and always responsive to any need we had. We covered a lot of ground that would have been difficult at best without this great Tour Company. Highly recommend.

    Had a great time with Jennifer. She was very nice and very familiar with the surroundings. Would highly recommend booking a tour as some of the roads are small and she was very experienced at navigating and timing of areas. We had a great time.

    Extensive All- Day Tour
    Our guide Steve was very nice and informative. He had given this tour many times before, so knew the best way to experience things. The tour was extensive and covered a lot of the things to see in the Black Hills area.

    Unexpected pleasure
    Full day in a spacious private vehicle. Our guide was on time and pleasant. First stop missile site, bring mosquito repellent! Missile museum very interesting, great presentation by former missileer! Next stop Badlands, awesome scenery throughout. Picnic lunch was fair, could have used more selection. Last stop was Wall Drug which offered endless tourist gifts. An hour there is plenty!

    Fabulous Private Tour
    Cindy was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable of the Badlands and The Minutemen Missile Silo and Wall Drugs. She became one of our family members. We laughed so much and truly enjoyed this tour with Cindy. We were sad to say goodbye.

    Private Black Hills Tour
    Our guide for our tour was Denise and she was great. She picked us up from our location in a clean comfortable vehicle and we toured all over. Needles Highway and saw the Cathedral Spires, Mount Rushmore, Iron Mountain Rd, Crazy Horse, Wildlife Loop. We saw so many things that we never would have seen or noticed if she hadn't pointed them out. We saw Big Horn Sheep, Bison, Prairie Dogs; and we had a wonderful picnic. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Amazing tour
    Amazing tour with 11 year old son. Joel was our guide and was terrific. Patient with kid questions, great mix of detail and interesting facts. Toured my Rushmore, crazy horse and saw the many animals up close in Custer. Took my son on some cool hikes off needles highway. Highly recommend for anyone young or old!

    Highlights of the Black Hills in one day!
    We only had one day to spend in the Black Hills and this tour was an excellent way to see as much as possible. We saw way more with our guide, Julie, than we ever would have been able to see on our own. Julie was great and we enjoyed the day very much!

    Special trip
    Joel was the best guide we could've hoped for. He spent the day with us. He's very knowledgeable and took the time to discuss the history in-depth. I would absolutely recommend this company and Joel to anyone looking for a special trip.

Earlier this year my wife and I were considering a bike trip on the Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We contacted the Black Hills Tour Company and right from the start our email communications gave us the feeling that we were dealing with a professional company and they were interested in helping us make our trip special. From our first communications, we were confident in their ability to help us plan and execute our bike trip and they delivered. Melina and Kevin, the owners of the Black Hills Tour Company, were flexible during the planning process and made appropriate suggestions to make the trip better. During our time on the trail the Black Hills Tour Company delivered everything they promised professionally and timely.
Although the Black Hills Tour Company rent very good bikes for trail riding, we brought our own tandem bike for our trip. The Black Hills Tour Company let us use their location to build our bikes, store our bike boxes, and disassemble our bikes at the end of the ride. Tools were available if needed and after our disassembly process Melina went out of her way to help us ship our bike home. We had a great trip and a lot of the reason was because of the professional ability of the Black Hills Tour Company.

The best part of the experience was having Rob as our guide due to his patience, expertise, and his experience with the Mickelson Trail. While I was unable to ride a bike on the Mickelson Trail, my sons one of which is Autistic, were able to bike the 17.9 miles due to how Rob explained the trail, went a portion of the trail with them, and made sure they were safe along the way.

Since I was unable to ride, Rob as we passed the various stopping points on the trail, he would point out the landscape, the trail, and other points of interest. He made me feel as if I were a part of the bike trip with my sons. This made the day very special to me.

In addition to this, the lunch provided was good and made for a very enjoyable day. My sons are in their twenties and not teens but there was nothing else I could select.

Due to this experience, my sons are talking about another bike trip with Rob in June of 2024.

We had a fabulous time riding the Mickelson Trail. Black Hills Tour Company did a great job setting up the itinerary and arranging our lodging. Our luggage was always at the next place each afternoon when we pulled up. The lodging was always close to the trail. We enjoyed our driver, Rob, very much. The trail is such an amazing way to experience the Black Hills. Lots of blue skies, the smell of pines, and the wildlife you see mile after mile are incredible!

We did a self-guided tour. Melina handled most of the arrangements and she was very accommodating with our requests, changes and unusual timing (a week/days that they normally do not arrange tours). The whole trip was awesome and we enjoyed it tremendously. Robb handled all the driving and luggage transport. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and interesting to talk to making the trip special. The trail itself is beautiful and we had a wonderful time.

My wife and I did a custom 5 day tour, which is to say, it was just us and the guide. We are both 75 years old and are experienced bikers, but, needless to say, we are on the downside of our touring career. Our guide, Randy, turned out to br not only very knowledgeable, but adaptable and understanding of our limitations. We were able to do the whole Mickelson Trail over 3 days, which was our major goal in visiting the Black Hills. On day 4 we tried to do the wildlife loop in Custer State Park, but the uphills proved to be too much for us. We put the bike in the van and finished touring that day in the van. We got to see all the major sites in the Black Hills while swapping stories with Randy. We considered biking the badlands on day 5, which Randy thought was within our capabilities, but the temperature was predicted to reach 105 degrees that day, so we demurred. Instead we did a cave tour and visited the mammoth site (air conditioned). All in all it was a wonderful week and I won’t highly recommend this company.

One of the best tour taken. Company was easy to communicate with perfect amount of tour information on the web site. Well planned and organized, with hotel pickup and drop off as well as a delicious lunch. My daughter has gluten allergy and Kevin was able to accommodate in a short notice with local ingredients. Best of all, Kevin has a vast knowledge of trail topography, and American Indian history, which made a 36 long bike trail a fun and educational experience. Will absolutely recommend.

The scenery was beautiful and the tour guides were excellent. Since we are in our 80's, the best thing they did was recommend the e-bikes. It made the biking so much easier for us and fun. We liked Black Hills Tour Company because they offer a variety of bike tours and they accomodate your skill level. We aren't avid cyclists but had a great time. They also took time to show us around the Black Hills area. We are definitely going with them on another adventure

Thank you both! We are so pleased you got to enjoy the area on bikes. E-bikes are such a great addition to the fleet, and make the rides accessible and enjoyable for everyone, we are thrilled you got to see the area that way!

The 4 day self guided Mickelson Trail bike trip was excellent. Black Hills Tour Company made all the arrangements for shuttles, bike rental and lodging, all we had to do was get on our bikes each morning and ride. Our luggage was waiting for us each evening at our lodgings. Each nights lodgings were clean and comfortable.

We added the optional Mt. Rushmore guided tour on the 2nd afternoon. Our guide Kevin was knowledgable, entertaining and accomodating. While at Mt. Rushmore I lost my wallet, I didn't discover this until I returned to Hill City after the tour. When I contacted Kevin he searched the van and when he did not find it he offered to take me back to Mt. Rushmore to look for it. I opted not to do that, so he said he would have another guide inquire about it in the morning. I was very grateful for his efforts. Fortunately the wallet was found and returned to me the next day by one of the Park Rangers at Mt. Rushmore.

Jim our shuttle driver was also great. He was very knowledgable of the area and it's history.

I would reccomend Black Hills Tour Company for your adventure on the Mickelson Trail.

The Mickelson Trail is a gorgeous rail to trail, with vast forestry, babbling brooks and dusty western tunnels. Melina helped, advised us and organized the trip. Carson was a fun tour guide and properly packed a good lunch for us at a mid point trail delta. Will definitely be back for another ride with Black Hills Tour Company, and a stop at Deadwood Brewery post ride.
