Advertising and signs give lots of hype. If you go with what you read, you will be disappointed. We did not go for the supper show, just a noon meal. All there was on the menu, hotdogs, BBQ pork, polish was about it. Price was cheap, for 6 people, $31.59.

My family of 5 went to the Chuckwagon Supper and Music Show only, not the other tours. Kids enjoyed seeing the tinsmith and rope maker but don't plan to spend much time seeing the exhibits, such as Dances with Wolves set. There is not much. Dinner is inside on long tables. I was very pleasantly surprised it was cool and there weren't any flies (which were everywhere in SD in July). Dinner included beef, chicken, potato, beans, applesauce, cake, and lemonade/coffee. Food was very good (which I wasn't expecting)! The music show includes some country and oddly Beatles and Elvis, but the musicians were talented. Overall, the dinner and show exceeded my expectations.

To start off with we booked the bus tour package. This includes tour, breakfast, dinner and dinner show. Tour was great. The driver was a bit too much for me. The food for breakfast and dinner was good and plenty. The show was great. I would recommend this package to all. I would not take bus 805 again. It was well worth the price.

We only had one day in Rapid City and this was a good way to see many things in a short time. I was glad to have an air conditioned bus and not to worry about parking at the attractions. I am in total agreement with the reviewer that did not care for the jokes about our president. It was not the time or the place. We also got VERY tired of the jokes about the mineral "shist." Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse , Custer State Park are spectacular. We really don't need to be entertained with jokes that middle schoolers find funny. Dinner was nothing special, show was average. I would do it again because of the sites, but might look to see if there are other tour companies available.

Slow moving and constantly trying to sell you stuff. Not horrible but not great. Also not a fan of conservative atmosphere. I don't care for jokes about the president especially around my children, I try to teach my children to be respectful.
