Kevin did a remarkable job putting together a bespoke bike trip for my group of 10 that ranged in age from 30 to 70. The scenery was breathtaking, Kevin put us in the right places at the right time. We also got to see amazing wildlife and learned all about the history and uniqueness of this region. Everyone had a great time.

Planning: Kevin and Melina were top flight when it came to thoughtfully collaborating with us on a two day itinerary (including Spearfish Canyon tour and Mickelson Trail bike ride on day 2) that suited our family perfectly.

Execution: Joel, our guide, was extraordinary. He made everything interesting, provided very nuanced, super-local insights, and figured out what our interests were and was responsive to them. He also happily pivoted slightly on Day 2 when another area operator introduced some scheduling challenges for us and eventually gave up his personal planned evening activity to allow us to complete a day that started late by no fault of his own.

We were a group of 10 (6 adults & 4 kids) and this was the perfect way for our family to experience the Southern Black Hills together. Melina was great to work with before we even got there. She gave us options of what would be fun for all & where the kids could stretch their legs & not get tired on the bus. Kevin picked us up at our VRBO & had plenty of snacks & drinks. (We did pack a cooler with adults drinks) He was very knowledgeable & kept us all entertained on the drive. He was so nice & was willing to take the MANY family photos I asked from him :) Highlights were Mt. Rushmore, Sylvan Lake (kids wanted to climb on the huge rocks by the lake) & seeing the large herd of buffalo in Custer State Park. I heard the laser show at Crazy Horse would be fun, and so they helped plan around that & Kevin even brought us chairs to sit & watch it. (but the laser show was lame & I would NOT recommend adjusting your tour around that, and this was NOT their fault. This was something we asked for & they accommodated it ) The bus was very comfortable & I loved our VIP drop offs at all the monuments.

This was an incredible full day family experience starting from even as soon as we booked the tour. Melina was great and called us to inquire if anyone had any food sensitivities for the lunch that was provided. She was also super accommodating when we couldn't find an Uber or taxi at the airport and had to rent a car to be returned the next day. Kevin met us at the airport instead of at our hotel as was originally planned. The tour was great and we were the only people on the tour so it is indeed private. Even though the schedule was totally planned, there was a bit of "wiggle room" for length of stay, pickup, drop off, etc. So the day was definitely tailored to our schedule and itinerary.
Kevin was great,very practical and knowledgeable about literally everything on the tour. since he grew up in the area. He knew all of the history of Rapid City, Mt Rushmore, the Black Hills, Custer and Crazy Horse. We had ample time at all of the sites we visited and never felt rushed. The provided lunch was great picnic fare and they even took into account our dietary restrictions. The highlight of the tour was the drive back along the wildlife loop where we saw elk, pronghorn, prairie dogs and herds of bison that literally walked next to the van for like 3/4 mile. Kevin again knew everything about wildlife and it's conservation.
The tour took up the whole day and Kevin even got us back to our hotel in time for our dinner reservation. I accidentally left my phone charger in the van and Kevin and Melina were sweet enough to drive back and meet us at the restaurant to return it. If you are going to the area, this company is a MUST!!!!

My family (husband, wife, adult daughter) booked a private tour of the Black Hills and Mt Rushmore with this company. We are all still reveling in how wonderful the day was yesterday! Our guide and driver, Ryan, made it so special. We learned more, saw more, and enjoyed more than we possibly could have ever done on our own, thanks to Ryan. He was superb. So knowledgeable, genuine, flexible and accommodating. It really was a perfect day for us! I highly recommend Black Hills Tour Company. It’s a growing, family owned business that is really attentive to its customers interests.

Touring with a local guide as knowledgeable and passionate as Joel made all of the difference. We were lucky to book two day tours, one to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse and the other to the Badlands. Joel delivered above and beyond our expectations.

He showed us so many things we'd have missed on our own. Like the outline of Lincoln's hand holding his lapel on My Rushmore, or the scenic back roads like the Iron Mountain Road. The view of My Rushmore through a stone tunnel are incredible. His insights were so interesting and gave us a real sense of what we were seeing.

The experience captivated everyone in our group and the pictures Joel took are keepers. This was our first trip to South Dakota, and we were amazed at the beautiful landscapes and animal life.

We can't wait to return to South Dakota and see more with Black Hills Tour company.

The trip to Custer Park is a must. We came across a herd of over 100 Bison moving across the road.

Daniel Milks was a great tour guide. He was knowledgeable, helpful, responsive to our requests, and told great stories. He led us to great locations where we got to see tons of wildlife up close. He is a seasoned global traveler with a passion for exploring the national parks and that came through every moment of the trip. We would be thrilled to go on future trips with him if possible.

Our driver, Ryan was the best! He knew a lot about the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip.
Would definitely recommend the 1800 train ride and having 'Black Hills Tour' company provide you with a picnic.
Great adventure and a Great tour company!!!

My sisters and I did it all! Bicycling, hiking, eating (great restaurant gems), museums, laboratories and we even watched a couple of documentaries on the way home in the dark! We traveled all over South Dakota with Kevin and Joel. They gave us several history lessons and left us with great respect for this beautiful and colorful state. We will always remember our great adventure to SD! I would recommend Black Hills Tour Company to any age group.

We had a great tour of the Southern Black Hills with our guide, Robb. Robb knew the area very well. Given that the morning was foggy and smoky, he modified the schedule to accommodate this and it worked out great - we started early through Custer State Park and the Wildlife loop which enabled us to get up close and personal to a large herd of bison (safely). We could really appreciate their size and beauty. He took us a bit off the beaten path and we saw pronghorn antelope as well as more bison. We stopped in the town of Custer for a picnic lunch, followed by a visit to the Crazy Horse Memorial. From there we toured Needles Highway and Sylvan Lake and finally Mt. Rushmore. From the beginning Robb was friendly and welcoming. He described the area well and was familiar with the history too. I recommend Black Hills Tour Company and Robb!
