Day 1 - Rapid City. Welcome to Rapid City in the beautiful Black Hills. Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
Day 2 - Rapid City - Mount Rushmore - Deadwood. See Crazy Horse Memorial, a monument carved out of a mountain that pays respect to the great Native American hero, Chief Crazy Horse. Drive deep into the Black Hills, through what was Sioux Indian territory, to see the stunning granite faces of MOUNT RUSHMORE, a giant monument to four great American presidents: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. Afterward, visit TATANKA: The Story of the Bison, and experience the richness of the Lakota people. On to Deadwood, a lawless frontier town during the 1876 Gold Rush, where Jack McCall murdered Wild Bill Hickok during a poker game. Overnight here, and discover Deadwood's Wild West ways as you walk in the footsteps of legends like Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock.

Next a photo stop of Devils Tower National Monument, established as America's first national monument by Teddy Roosevelt in 1906. The spectacular rock formation and the surrounding countryside are home to a myriad of plant and animal life, and Native Americans consider the area a place for renewal. Overnight in the town of Sheridan located in the Bighorn Mountains. (B)
Day 4 - Sheridan - Little Big Horn Battlefield-Cody. This morning visit the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument which commemorates one of America's most significant and famous battles.

During the visit at the Battlefield, hear the story of the great-war leader of the Sioux, Crazy Horse, and about the defeat of the US Seventh Cavalry by Lakota (Sioux), Cheyenne, and Arapaho warriors. Afterwards, arrive in Buffalos Bill's frontier town of Cody. During your free time here, we suggest a visit to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, home to five unique museums including the Whitney Gallery of Western Art, the Plains Indians Museum, Cody Firearms Museum, and the Buffalo Bill Museum telling the life and legend of this bigger-than-life character.

In addition to superb mountain scenery, the park is one of the world's principle wildlife preserves and a photographer's paradise.
Day 7 - Yellowstone - Grand Teton National Park - Jackson. Head south into magnificent GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, one of America's last preserves of wild solitude.
