The driver was just great, he shared a wealth of information along with his driving skills around and thru the mountain. I'm from New Jersey if I come back this way again I will take tour again with Bruce as my tour guide. I will tell others about the experience and recommend the tour.

We had a great time on the tour. Bruce, our bus driver, was very informative and has a great sense of humor. We learned a lot about Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Black Hills. I am very amazed that he could drive the bus through the needle points and the pig tail road. We had a very stress free and relaxing tour.

We loved the bus tour. We had 2 adults and 3 kids under 16 and we all thought it was a great way to see Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Black Hills. Our driver Bruce was so informative about everything that we all learned a lot from him, plus he had a great since of humor. We had been there 3 times before and I feel like I learned a lot of new things from our tour.
