We went on this tour to Mount Rushmore and it was a different experience. We enjoyed the visit and had to give my kids a bit of explanation. later, the visit to devil tower was also amazing and using binocular that my kids bought with them we saw the rock shapes, its color and truly, the changes in the earth are stunning. We also bought some souvenirs near the devil tower final tower route. The tour was really good and stopped at nice places to eat and do our shopping. I give 5 stars and also recommend this tour operator!
We had seen many pictures of Mount Rushmore, but this is the first time we were walking into the same area. The viewing area looked beautiful and there were the state flags and mount behind. The beauty of this tour was remarkable. The guide and the driver were experts and handled all the guests perfectly. They had an answer for everything and so throughout the tour it went smooth. The only disappointment was about the cleanliness in the bus after a week. It would have been nice, if it had been washed and maintained. Rest everything was fine, 3 stars!
