The driver took us on a tour of the city, giving us a background in history, fun facts, legends and skullduggery. All in the most hilarious fashion possible, without taking themselves seriously at all. One of the best hours spent in Deadwood.

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.

Tour was led by a crazy Dave who was absolutely brilliant. He combined mad humour and interaction with a high degree of knowledge about the area and its once famous inhabitants. He pointed out many of the buildings which makes the town of Deadwood famous....More

There is so much history to this area and the town, there is no reason at all to make political jokes and sexist jokes. Our driver Dave was not as funny as he thought and offensive at times. I get that you want to entertain...More

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.

Have a look at the website, it will tell you what you need to know, only thing is I don't think its a year round thing, probably just in the summer months. We loved Deadwood, be sure to go in The Midnight Star such a nice... More

Dear Janet, The tour schedule varies with the month of the year, it's about 1 hour long, the length of time is somewhat flexible, too, and I can't remember exactly what the cost was, but it was very reasonable and tipping... More
