Badlands National Park Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After an 8:30am complimentary pick-up at your Rapid City accommodation, your small group tour (12 people max) will leave in the comfort of a Mercedes Sprinter van or luxury SUV. Enjoy a morning coffee and a one-hour drive out to the Badlands National Park. After an included lunch, your tour guide will walk you through the wonders of the park. You will learn about its history, the current wildlife that lives there, and discover amazing life and unimaginable animals that once called this land home. You will have time for stops, short walks, and photographs. Before leaving the park, you visit the Visitors Center and picnic ground to walk through their educational displays. 

    A 15 minute drive from the park brings you to the Minuteman Missile Visitors Center for a brief stop before you continue onto the National Historic Site (the actual missile site) and re-live America’s Cold War history. 

    Another short drive leads you to Wall Drug to finish the day and find souvenirs and famous fresh donuts. You will be returned to your accommodation around 3:30pm.

    We enjoyed spending the day with our capable guide Erin and one other couple touring the Badlands. Also included was a visit to the ICBM museum and missile silo, as well as Wall Drug. A tasty lunch was provided, too. We highly recommend this tour.

    Excellent...highly recommend. Small group so able to personalize to get the most out of tour. Melina was our guide and she knew all the best spots for getting great photos. A stop at the Minuteman Museum and silo were a special treat.

    The visual wonders of the Badland was everything we expected and more. But, what really made our trip very memorable was Melina in-depth knowledge, insight and discussion of the history of the area, the diversity…and adversity of the cultures. A job well done !!!
