I personally learned so much, and laid to rest so many misconceptions I had about the Dakotas & Badlands. Arid? Prairies? Desert? – only to find miles & miles of pine forests verdant valleys and rolling grasslands. It didn’t matter where you pointed your camera, it was all beautiful. We received value for our money; we could hardly eat all the included meals. We will have to fast for a week! Sylvia & Ed O'Brien - Shaunavon, SK

Yes absolutely we would recommend this tour to our friends and we got value for our money. The tour was great fun, with just the right mix of entertainment and history. John & Edna Ritchie - Calmar, AB

Tips for bellman and meals were included in price 2. Very well organized 3. The right amount of activities & down time. 4. Not having to do the driving 5. Having all the attractions paid for. 6. And especially all the meals that were included in the price of the tour. Bev Roy - Weyburn,SK

Spending time with my Grandparents was the highlight of the tour. Nikki Corfield - North Battleford, SK
