" By far the most enjoyable and cost effective part of our vacation"
We would not have been able to see what we did on this tour had we drove ourselves around. The tour guide was wonderful and we all had a great time on our tour. We saw things that we weren't expecting. By far the most enjoyable and cost effective part of our vacation.

"A must for any trip."
A must for any trip. I think going on this trip the first day really was the best thing for us. We were able to see where everything was so we could plan other things we wanted to do. They gave us ample time to see everything before going to the next sight. Drivers were very informative.

"Enjoyed ourselves greatly."
I am so glad we did not have to drive some of those roads are self! It was relaxing just to sit back and take in the view and listen to the bus driver fill us in on a lot of different things. Had plenty of time at each stop. Met a few new friends. Enjoyed ourselves greatly.

"Highly recommend"
Taking the bus tour was our best decision we made during our stay in the black hills area. It was so nice that all of us were able to take in all of the beautiful scenery and not have to worry about roads and where we were. Our bus driver was amazing! We learned a lot from him and found out things about the sites that we would not have otherwise known. Highly recommend and when we go back, we will do the bus tour again!
