What people are saying about South Dakota

We had a delightful day with Christine, our private driver, photographer and guide. She had all the insight required to educate us on all aspects of the Badlands in SD. We found prairie dogs, Buffalo, Little Bighorn sheep and antelope. We stopped for many breathtaking views of Badlands. We visited famous Wall drug store. The van was super comfortable and clean with plenty of water and snacks. We had lunch at Red Rock restaurant (included). Christine customized our experience based on our level of fitness and our interest. She allowed us to skip a view of the military missile silos in order to see Sturgis. Pick up and drop off from your Hotel. Highly recommended tour with Christine!!

Our guide was Rise and she was so friendly, very knowledgeable about South Dakota, alms history if everything we saw! We felt like she was part of our family when our tour was done! My husband was a little skeptical about the cost of the tour but in the end he felt it was worth every Penny and more! She knew so many places to see, get the best pictures and interesting things we would not have known on our own, plus he was able to see everything and enjoy the drive with Rose taking care of the driving and hair pin curves!! Really recommend the Blackhills Tour and ask for Rose !!

this excursion is something special, well worth seeing with a very good tourist guide who also translates everything into German on the cell phone, everything is perfectly clear here you can see the most beautiful nature in the national park and the many bison.

Mark was well versed in the history of the region. I couldn’t have asked for a better guide. We were able to see so much of Mt. Rushmore and the surrounding monuments.

Excellent experience! Christine was a great guide and was very informative!
