This was the last part of a Tatanka museum tour which took us to Deadwood. The guide had a very colorful and funny narrative that told about the history of Deadwood. We laughed all the way through the tour. It was conducted in an old...More

We love tours. They give you history, often mixed with legend and humour. This tour did it all. Costner bought the hotel and this tour, but that's where his involvement ends. Locals have been giving the tour for years, and continue to please folks. Getting...More

The tour was more about Wild Bill Hickcock than anything else. I would have liked to learn more about the history of the area and the gold rush. Our guide was quite the character and we enjoyed him a lot.

While Dave is a comedian, it grew a bit tiresome, I could handle that. What I did not like was his politically biased commentary, thinly veiled, assuming all his customers shared this point of view. I was very disappointed and did not find it a...More
