Mount Rushmore to Yellowstone Tour Details

Stand in awe of the stone sculptures of Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monument.  Feel the breeze from the pinnacle of Devil’s Tower and feel miniscule standing in its shadow. End the tour basking in richest wildlife in the country in Yellowstone and Grand Teton.  In late summer and fall, the elk begin to rut and bulls can be heard bugling in the early morning hours.  In one day, you can witness geysers soaring out of the ground, high alpine glaciers, and bubbling mud.  

Combine five incredible national parks in this exclusive tour. You will see Mount Rushmore, Badlands National Park, Crazy Horse, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Park.

This is a complicated tour to plan, but we take care of everything for you so you don’t have to stress and can sit back and enjoy the journey. 

Custom Itinerary 

Your input ensures your guide designs the day according to your interests.  You go at your family’s pace-whether you want to linger with that moose or move along to find the next amazing sight.


Ensure a memorable day for you and a few others.  You won’t be in a bus with forty other people so you can enjoy the peacefulness of the natural world.  

Spacious Sightseeing Van

Our raised-roof sightseeing vans are all windows.  That means that everyone has the best seat to view the mountains as you travel through the parks.

Food for the Day

Hot breakfasts, fresh and tasty picnic lunches, snacks, and bottled water take care of your needs throughout your time with us.  This is eight days when you don’t have to worry about what you are going to eat during the day.  


We’ll be taking digital photos the whole time and share them with you.  With our iPhone photo package, you’ll go home with the best photos of your vacation.  Your guide will capture you, so you can have your Christmas card shot.  

Professional Optics

Thousands of dollars of optical equipment at your disposal allow you to bring the wildlife up close and personal no matter how far away it is.  

Running Water Restrooms

As remote national parks, the facilities are mainly outhouses. We know where all of the 5-star restrooms are in Yellowstone, so you don’t have to go in a dark and dank outhouse.  Need a place to wash your hands?  We’ve got you covered.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the 'Black to Yellow Trail' tour?

The ‘Black to Yellow Trail’ tour route is historic.  It was promoted a century ago to attract Americans from Chicago to travel across the country.  It started in the Black Hills of South Dakota and ended in Yellowstone National Park.


What is the activity level for this tour?

This is an easy to light moderate tour.  We will do many walks and be active, but they will all be over flat terrain on established trails.  Any walking is optional.  Just talk to your guide and they will figure out what works best for you.  

We just want you to know that this is not a ‘sit in the van and stare out the windows’ tour, nor is it an intensive trek through mountains.  It is an adventure, meant to be enjoyed at a relaxed pace, where you can take your time to learn about the history, the wildlife, and the characters who lived in the region.
