This historical tour started in 1973 and the company is considered the 'local expert' on tours for Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. On this 9-hour adventure, you will be driven through 100 miles of the Black Hills and have plenty of stops along the way for photos and exploration. You will visit Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Crazy Horse Memorial. Your guide/driver will be there to answer any questions that you may have and give you interesting information on the landmarks that you see. Free breakfast and dinner are also included! The tour meets, departs, and returns to Fort Hays Chuckwagon in Rapid City. Below is a detailed itinerary of the tour and stops! 

At 7:30 am, check in at Fort Hays Chuckwagon and enjoy the all-you-can-eat country breakfast. The breakfast includes coffee, homemade pancakes, sausage links, and biscuits & gravy. At 9:00 am, board the motorcoach outside of the building. You will then be transported and get to see the following places: 
  • Mount Rushmore National Memorial

    : You will have a little over an hour to look around at your own convenience and enjoy the sites and beauty that you came to South Dakota for. We stop here first because Mount Rushmore is at its best in the morning sun. Gutzon Borglum carved this mountain facing east towards the morning sun and intended it to be viewed this way. 
  • Iron Mountain Road

    : After leaving Mount Rushmore we will travel along the Iron Mountain Road. A beautiful 17-mile road of breathtaking scenery featuring 3 one lane tunnels that perfectly frame Mount Rushmore.
  • Custer State Park Resort

    : We stop for lunch inside Custer State Park at the Game Lodge and previous summer White House for President Calvin Coolidge. Try the Buffalo Stew, it's the best you will ever find! 
  • Needles Highway

    : After lunch, we depart for the Needles Hwy. This 14-mile scenic drive is sure to leave you breathless and awestruck at the amazing beauty of the Black Hills. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Be on the lookout for wildlife such as buffalo, bighorn sheep, and burros! With only inches to spare on each side of the bus, you can relish in the fact that you are not the one driving. 
  • Sylvan Lake

    : Take a rest stop and coffee break at the beautiful Sylvan Lake. This is among the crown jewels of Custer State Park and the beauty within it.
  • Crazy Horse Memorial

    : We spend about an hour at Crazy Horse Memorial. You are on your own to spend this time enjoying this piece of history in the making. Upon completion, it will be the largest mountain carving in the world! Truly a piece of awe-inspiring history being worked on every day.
At about 5:30, you will return to Fort Hayes Chuckwagon and have some time to relax before the show starts. At 6:30, the dinner show will open its doors. Around 7:15, it's showtime. This Branson-style music variety show is a great time for the whole family. The dinner show is approximately one hour. This entire tour is the best way to experience South Dakota

The black hills combo bus tour was so cool! One of the nice things for me was that i didn't have to drive around the black hills, after it took us 7 hours to get there from omaha ne. It was a nice break, and allowed us to really enjoy the amazing views, learn some history from the driver (billy), and just relax. It covered all of the major sites, and our driver even stopped along the way so we could get some amazing photos of the views and wildlife. I would personally do this tour again, and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the black hills area.
Tip: Try to get the front passenger seat on the bus to get better views of the amazing landscapes you will see.

This was our second time doing this tour. Pastor bill was an awesome tour guide. The cowboy pancake breakfast and piano player was a great start to the day and the chuck wagon supper and show the best.
