Bus Tour of Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills

My husband & I took this tour the last week in September. Sam was our bus driver & tour guide for the 9 hours. & I can honestly say he was the BEST. Not only was he knowledgeable & funny, but an excellent driver going through very winding Needles Highway & Iron Mt Road as well as ridiculously narrow tunnels with a school bus! About 90 minutes were spent at Mt Rushmore as well as Crazy Horse Memorial. Custer State Park was the highlight for me. Driving the Wildlife Loop Sam knew where to find the buffalo & we were able to get off the bus & see them from afar. The wild burros also “greet you” & aren’t afraid of people which was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour since you experience all the attractions in the Black Hills without driving yourself. The only negative - when making your reservation the website says to arrive between 7:30-8:00 AM when in reality you don’t leave until 9:00 AM.

Being able to see so much of this beautiful area in one day. Getting to relax and enjoy with not worrying about driving and finding the places ourselves.

So much fun! Loved the chuck wagon breakfast. Our bus driver was the best, very knowledgeable and funny! And the chuck wagon supper was not only delicious but the entertainment was so good. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Really enjoyed hearing all the information from Dan that we could not have otherwise known just by driving through. Very relaxing!!!

Tour starts at Fort Hays which has authentic buildings from Dances with Wolves. Great tour with ample time at each stop so we never felt rushed. Dan was our bus driver/guide and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend.

My family did this tour along with breakfast and dinner with show back in 1999. We had a blast back then.My kids still talk about how much fun they had. My husband and I decided to take the tour along with meals and show again. This was the best tour! Breakfast was great. Our tour was so much fun. We want to send Dan a huge THANK YOU for being so much fun! He not only told stories and cracked jokes, but he made sure we were able to get great pictures. Dan you are the best! And the buffet was good, unlike what others had written. Our food was delicious. The dinner and show were so much fun. And Dan was part of the entertainment. You all did a wonderful job! We have great pictures, stories and memories to share!

Mount Rushmore was something I wanted to see for many years and it didn’t disappoint. The bus tour made it stress free and the driver provided many interesting details. Great way to see the 4 sites.

Matt, our tour guide was fantastic. He provided so much interesting history, had a great sense of humor, and his ability to navigate the steep, winding and narrow roads was exceptional. Had a great time. Thanks Matt!
