  Mt. Rushmore & More Tour

The Mt. Rushmore & More Tour is an 8 hour, all inclusive tour of the Black Hills of South Dakota.

 

On this tour, you will make your way from your northern-most area, Rapid City, and travel all the way to the southern-most point, Custer State Park, while viewing and exploring the top attractions along the way. As you make your way through the Black Hills, your driver/guide will provide interesting narration, answer questions and provide you with information of what to do and see at your attraction stops.

 

The Mt. Rushmore & More Tour is exactly that – a full experience of the Black Hills, including a brunch at the Carver’s Café located at Mt. Rushmore. You will discover Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Memorial and take in the scenery of Custer State Park with Iron Mountain Road. Custer State Park provides visitors with wildlife, pigtail bridges, magnificent Black Hills scenery and tunnels that frame Mt. Rushmore in the distance.
