We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour, and learned more than our excellent guided bus tour on a separate excursion earlier in the week. I highly recommend the GuideAlong app!

Our guide, Jamie, was so knowledgeable and very accommodating to our needs. He made sure we were his priority for the day. Had a great time and learned so much!

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Black Hills, Mt Rushmore, and The Badlands. So much information and well told! Many options of great activities along the way.

So good to be guided around. And I learned heaps too! I’d never have gotten this level of experience on my own.

Enjoyed the audio tour very much, very informative. Would do again for another region.
