Clay was fabulous! He picked us up from our condo right on time and then gave us a day we will always remember! Clay is very personable, funny and very knowledgeable about Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills, etc. We saw more than we could have on our own! The history and beauty of the area is fantastic, but to learn all the stories behind the scenes, so to speak, made this trip extra special! HIGHLY recommend Clay!!


Fantastic day. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip memorable. We even ended the day by passing thru several bison herds that were crossing the roadway.

Our tour guide Kathy was wonderful. My only issue was the lack of time spent at the monuments. I picked this tour as they say they tour the monuments first and you have time at the monuments that way. For some reason they did not do that. Way too much time was spent in the park. Great scenery at the park and lots of buffalo encounters. Still hardly any time left for the monuments, and we were all tired by the end of the day, so even if there was more time, I would not have wanted it. The monuments should be the first two stops. I did love the open top van. We were able to stand up and take photos when the van was stopped. Just watch as the AC was loud and didn't get to the very back of the van.

Everything about this tour was right. We met in the lobby of our hotel right on time. There was only one other couple in our tour, which made the tour comfortable and family-like. Our leader/driver was well versed in what he showed us. He had been a 4th grade teacher and his knowledge and speaking ability were top notch.
