Overall everything was very good although we spent too much time at Mount Rushmore and I would like to have gone to Custer Park which was not far away. However, I realise you can't please all the people all the time.
The biggest issue to me was the very poor food at breakfast at all hotels. There was no choice of eggs which were always scrambled and actually tasted like cardboard. All I could eat was the real fruit as there was not much else.

Every day was a brilliant new experience. Learnt so much about the 'West' and the Native American culture in particular. The variety of mountain ranges, plains,and lakes spectacular. We saw Osprey, Bald eagle, Elk, deer, Bison/Tatanka and Black Bear to name but a few. Derek our guide was exceptional and Phil our driver not only a very safe driver but knowledgeable about the area and a gentleman. All hotels of great standards. Will be happy to book our travel with Global Journeys again especially with Yvonne Brooks assistance.

Beautiful Scenery and colours with many animals in their natural surroundings, including a lone wolf, in Yellowstone. Well Paced tour, with excellent guide and driver. Only criticism was Yellowstone accommodation which was closing down for the season and had run out of certain foods, elsewhere accommodation was well positioned in towns that you could walk after dinner. We found Yvonne very easy to deal with and we would use Global Journeys again and recommend them to our friends. Thank you Yvonne.

Our tour guide Andrew Moran was up there with one of the best tour guides ever. He was always there at our beck and call and really brought the group together. I was in tears when the tour was over, to be parting from the group. His knowledge was extensive. The only change I could suggest for the itinerary was to spend more time at the Crazy Horse display and less at Mt Rushmore. It was not possible to see everything in the museum at Crazy Horse in the time allocated and we found ourselves, hanging around at Mr Rushmore. Very happy with all the excursions and hotels. Would do the tour again with Andrew at the drop of a hat.

We had a wonderful tour with great sights, excellent guide and bus driver and great company on the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Globus. We would have liked a little more time at Crazy Horse and then a little less at Mt Rushmore.
