The guide was not good at all. She had a rehearsed speech and she would forgot things and then say wait a minute and go back. Very disappointed. Seeing the graves of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane was cool.

We really loved this tour. Did not expect to learn as much as we did and we were pleasantly surprised and pleased with our bus driver/tour guide. Very knowledgeable and funny. I would do this again

We enjoy taking tours because we learn so much more than visiting sites on our own. This tour did not disappoint. Ron was a great bus driver and Kim was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Glad we chose this tour company!

This was a wonderful way to get some history of Deadwood and go down Main Street with narration. The tour took us to Mt Moriah Cemetary where we learned about Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and more before seeing their graves. Highly recommended!
