"We had a great time."
We had a great time. We took our children and grandchildren on this wonderful trip. First the motel where we stayed at (ramkota motel) was outstanding. The kids enjoyed the indoor water park as much as they enjoyed all the sights, ie. Mount rushmore, flintstone, thunder mountain, gold panning, train ride, crazy horse, the caverns etc. However the best day we had was our bus tour. We were picked up promptly and had a wonderful breakfast. Then our outstanding tour started. The tour bus guide was trisha and she was outstanding. She knew everything about each place she took us.
