We took the all day tour to get an overview of what to see. We then went back to spend more time in the places that were of most interest to us. Our driver, Dan was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We particularly enjoyed the travel through the Needles and the close encounter with the sides as we passed through the tunnels. The buffalo had been herded to another part of Custer Park for an upcoming roundup celebration so we didn't see much wildlife due to that and the hot weather. We had an hour each at Crazy Horse & Mt Rushmore, You will need to return to these for more time if they interest you. Overall a good experience & we would recommend if your time there is short.

First of this Excursion was Excellent! Dan our driver was outstanding! This is great value as you get many stops included, Mount Rushmore and needles Highway were our favourites. My parents had a lot of fun said it was there favourite day trip. Dan our driver was very informative, and hilarious with his jokes he called us his Canadian friends. The day concluded with an awesome chuck wagon supper and entertainment at fort hays which was outstanding. Strongly recommend this Tour ! Lots of great memories already

Wow! What an awesome tour! Our bus driver/tour guide, Dan, was amazing and fun (and an excellent driver on those mountain roads!!!)! The tour was well organized and hit all of the highlights of the area. It is an excellent value for the money!
One of the best tours we have experienced!

Dan gave us an absolutely incredible tour of the Mount Rushmore area. This was a full day starting with a Chuckwagon breakfast. Breakfast was so so and they could have been a little friendlier there. At that point we were needlessly wondering what we were in store for. After breakfast we had time to tour the Dancing With Wolves movie set and shops. We also took the opportunity to meet many of our soon-to-be fellow passengers for the day. The tour was worth it all. Dan managed to drive that bus through the needle Highway as well as dropping us and picking us up at all of the major sites. We had plenty of time to enjoy each place we stopped. The bus was not great but the experience was awesome. Although it was a full day, the time went fast and we enjoyed every minute of it. Lunch at the game reserve turned out to be good ( get the buffet). We saw buffalo and other wildlife along the way. The Dinner Show to follow was a great deal of fun. We highly recommend the tour. It was worth every penny!

It's not easy to get to, no matter where you are. But if you are here, you are one of those who are determined to see it. It's well worth it. It's the magnificence, the grandeur, the sheer awl that drew me here. The $10 parking covers everything, which is practically nothing compare to the engineering and artistry that went into this from the engineers and the artists who spent years to make this a reality. It took me 5 hours to drive from Denver, but I absolutely loved it. Spending 1 hour is sufficient. While you are here you should also see the Crazy Horse statue under construction, which is 20 minutes from Mount Rushmore.
