I initially had low expectations from a $10 tour on an old school bus with no windows, but my expectations were certainly exceeded. The tour was very thorough and actually went a... read more

I initially had low expectations from a $10 tour on an old school bus with no windows, but my expectations were certainly exceeded. The tour was very thorough and actually went a little over the hour it was scheduled for. Dave was our bus driver and as other reviewers have said, he was certainly active in the tour. He does...

Not much in this town that's kid friendly but thus rest start offered kids meals! So we ate there. Food was average at best but staff was friendly and all the Costner movie stuff in the wall was neat.

We whole heartedly recommend this tour, but I warn you, you will be punned to death by Dave. You could actually sit on the bus and not move and you would be completely entertained. He gives you a hysterical err, historical rendition of Deadwood with a climax at the Mount Moriah Cemetery, and with this tour, you have to do... More

This tour, while it is a great value if you're looking to learn a little about the history of Deadwood, was a letdown for me. The driver (much beloved by other reviewers) was so over the top that it took away from the experience. There were a lot of stops and starts, literally. I'd say that almost half of the... More

We decided to take the bus tour after walking around Deadwood for 2 days. I am a complete Western History Geek so I knew the stories but it was great to hear"Dave the bus driver" retell those stories as he pointed out the various points of interest. Deadwood is a small town but built in the valley between two very... More

By far the best town tour I've ever been on. Short but oh, so entertaining. Ask for Dave. The man is just funny.

This $10 one-hour tour takes you through town and to the cemetery to visit Wild Bull's and Calamity jane's graves. Guide was funny. Buses are not air conditioned, but this is not an issue when moving.

Awesome one hour tour of the town and Moriah Cemetery. If you have not been in Deadwood before, it is an excellent idea to take this short tour. Lots of information in one hour. At the end of the tour you get a 20% discount at Diamond Lil's restaurant which is an excellent place to have lunch. Great inexpensive way... More

Dave, our tour guide was great. He really made the tour fun. The tour doesn't go very far but Dave pointed out several things to do in town that we probably wouldn't have known about otherwise. The tour goes to the cemetery but that's about it. You'd have to pay to get in the cemetery anyway so you might as... More

Driver Dave was excellent on this one hour trip around Deadwood. The hi light was the graves of Wild Bill Hitchcock and Calamity Jane. It was fun, interesting and educational, what ore could you want?
