Our driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Added many local and historical facts. Scenery was amazing and we didn't miss anything since we were not driving. Would highly reccommend anyone. We also might have missed Crazy Horse if we had been taking our own

This was an all day tour of Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, and surrounding area. We saw a lot, including buffalo up close and other animals. It was a great tour and we really enjoyed it.

Bus Tour was a full day. Everything on time. Driver was tour guide and he talked all day long. Which was a good thing. With a rental car we went back to Deadwood and realized how much we would have missed if we'd taken the car to Rushmore instead of the Bus Tour.
