Our driver, Dave, was excellent. He drove, narrated, and answered questions. The stops were great too. The only negative was related to the staff at the Hayes place where we met our driver. The gentleman was a bit rude to the large group trying to...More

The Mount Rushmore Sightseeing Tours out of Fort Hayes was one of the best tours we have taken. Pastor Bill was the best guide we've ever had. He was full of knowledge and very funny. We were able to see several of the main attractions...More

We had the best tour. We love taking the tours because the guides give so much information we would not find out on our own. We had a great time at each stop and were given ample time to take pictures and wander through the...More

Our nine-hour adventure began with a pickup at our hotel, a free service offered to all who stay in a Rapid City facility. The young courteous driver maneuvered safely throughout the city-wish I had asked his name. For a senior driver who may or may...More

Breakfast and dinner.....not good. Lunch buffet was good. Tour was excellent and glad I didn't have to drive for the day. Driver/Tour Guide was very knowledgeable with a quirky sense of humor. Music was okay.....all in all, worth the money.

Why don't you call Mount Rushmore tours and see if you can hire one of their drivers? The Needles Highway has some very small tunnels to go through. An experienced driver would be a good idea.

Located close to Rapid City and an easy drive. Although it was my understanding they provided transportation, we drove ourselves.
