We took this tour, because it was scheduled by our GLOBUS tour director. After getting on an old open air, rickety school bus, we had to put up with DAVE, the driver, for about an hour, (too long), while he drove around the small town,...More

I had read some of the reviews that complained about the political jokes so I wanted to book a different tour but the time was not convenient so we took this one anyway. Well, I guess the political repartee was not too awful but everything...More

A lot of local knowledge mixed in with some corny jokes--but I like corny, so that is all good--takes up a good hour so be prepared for that. Drove all town and then up to the cemetery that overlooks the town.

The bus takes you up the hill to the graves of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Driver Dave provides standard information interspersed with many jokes, which are not terrible. I did not, however, pay to hear his political opinions. This tour is supposed to...More

Tour took us throughout the town and to Mt. Moriah Cemetery. We learned a lot about the town's history and about Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane.

Great way to see Deadwood and hear the history. This tour will take you around town and up the boot hill. With this tour we got coupons to the Midnight Star. We had a good time.

Ok, our drive Dave was not bad. I may add some if his corny material to my dad joke arsenal. He likes to find out where people are from and use that in his talks...nice way to get everyone involved. Otherwise, the only really interesting...More
