We took the highlights tour and it was a very disappointing experience. The pick-up was an hour late, the van was filthy inside and out, and the management doesn't appear to care about these known problems. It should be noted that our guide/driver did a...More

We traveled to Custer in our motor home with two young children. We did not have a vehicle to visit all the area attractions, so we booked this tour. Our guide, BJ, was incredibly informative and wonderful with our children. We stopped at all of...More

Dishonest owner. I highly suggest you avoid this company for many reasons. We booked a guided tour and we pretty much received a shuttle service. The driver refused to use the microphone and he barely talked on the tour. When he did speak we couldn't...More

Very informative tour to some spectacular views with knowledgeable guides. Huge groups of 2-3 coach loads at a time so very busy, if you prefer to quietly enjoy nature i would recommend hiring a car.

You might be able to see the monuments and attractions driving on your own, but if you want to really treat yourself Golden Circle Tours is a great way to see the sights. You have an early morning pick up at your hotel in Custer,...More
