Tour is in an old school bus with the windows removed. No A/C. It was OK to do in September, but in the middle of summer the heat would be unbearable.

We travelled through Deadwood in an old style school bus with no glass in the windows (wear a jacket as it could get cold) and thoroughly enjoyed Dave’s jokes laced with local knowledge and history, and a fair amount of creativity. Being all things to...More

Avoid this tour and go with someone else. The tour guide cracked stupid and insulting jokes throughout interspersed with some history. I couldn't wait to get off the bus. They should have paid me to put up with this whack job for a whole hour.
