What you can expect

Embark on a full-day tour to the Black Hills National Forest and admire unforgettable views of Mount Rushmore, the wildlife-packed Custer State Park, and learn about the legacy of Crazy Horse with a visit to a memorial honoring his life.

After pickup from one of the nine meeting locations available in Rapid City or Keystone, watch the landscape shift into rugged hills filled with dense forests. Arrive Mount Rushmore National Memorial and hop out to get up-close looks at its rocky renditions of presidents past, including Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. Snap photos at their pensive gazes and enjoy a walk along the trails for closer views. Your next stop will be Crazy Horse Memorial, the world's largest mountain carving. View an informative video, tour the Indian Museum of North America, Native American Educational and Cultural Center, Korczak's studio and home. After Crazy Horse, we will travel into the small town of Custer for a scheduled lunch break, several options to choose from to dine on your own. Take a relaxing drive to Custer State Park and listen to the commentary from your guide while you watch for herds of free-roaming bison, burros, and mountain goats that call this area home. Take a winding drive along historic Iron Mountain Road, which takes you through hand-carved tunnels with openings that frame Mt. Rushmore in the distance.

Then return to Keystone and Rapid City for drops.
