    Really enjoyed this cave tour. Our tour guide Hannah was very good. Would go again when back in the Black Hills. Easy to get to also.  more »

    This cave is huge! We did the adventure tour and we were glad we did. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We did see a lot of the cave twice, but it was still interesting.  more »

    This was a good cave tour. We took the adventure tour, not bad priced, family of 4 was $50. Cave was a good 50 degrees as well.  more »

    We took our three children, ages 6 and under. This was seriously the most family friendly cave we have been to. We opted for the shorter tour which was perfect for our two year old, and were greeted at the end with a free crystal mining sandbox experience. The entire building and mining area have undergone a beautiful renovation.

    Excellent guide. Take the long tour, it is worth it and otherwise will seem too quick!

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Justis, was great - we had some "unruly" children on our tour and he handled it perfectly. He was friendly and funny. Gift shop had great merchandise - not your usual "tourist crap". Facility very clean with friendly staff. Definitely recommend Black Hills Caverns!

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90.
