This is a very informative tour and we learned a great deal about the history of Deadwood and its early inhabitants. It’s well-narrated and engrossing, with great information. Greg, the tour owner, is extremely responsive to questions via text. Once we figured out the WalkNTours app it was easy to use. Highly recommend the tour. There are some references to brothel activity and some violent killings of the day, so parents should be aware. Some previous commenters have dinged the tour as being difficult to hear. Deadwood is extremely loud with loads of noisy motorcycles and other vehicles. Don’t attempt to do this tour unless you have earbuds!!


I couldn’t get the trip to down load to hear it on my apple phone so my husband tried to share pods and that didn’t work either. So we quit and left.


The town was nice. Had some great picture opportunities. Sound tour didn’t work until we were ready to leave.


This was a great, inexpensive way to learn about Deadwood at your own pace and on your own schedule. I learned so much about the town on this walking tour!


We had no idea that we had arrived on a Deadwood nights and car show event. (Pretty funny actually) It was packed and it was difficult to maneuver and hear the tour. But, we did make the best of it and it was helpful. I definitely back up previous suggestions to use ear buds.


Nobody was there to meet us... to send us off. No one personally made it a point to greet us and give us a review of how this worked. Ended up leaving and not taking the tour at all. Should have booked a trolley tour. They had a guide.


The history was interesting, but it is a noisy place (bricks for road). That made listening to the walking tour hard to do at times. We enjoyed the museum as it was very informative of the history of Deadwood.


This self guided tour was well done and provided a great introduction into Deadwood, it’s history and colorful past. The tour was easy to navigate, and I was able to play it on my iPhone, and share the audio via AirPlay with my wife while we did the tour. Highly recommended - a great value for the money.


Lots of good info provided during the tour. Was a good way to experience Deadwood at my own pace… The app is easy to use, though they do recommend using earbuds… Good advice as a Deadwood can be quite loud during the day with lots of tourists, cars and motorcycles driving through town. This tour involves a walk to the cemetery… It was a very hot day when I went and I wasn’t going to walk the steep hill. The app does have a feature where you can take a tour virtually, and then drive up to the cemetery later at your leisure.


Not good at all!!! Could NOT use it!!! Had to download Viator and before being able to do anything, had to use WhatsApp, then was told to call a number, then the person sent me a text to download another app, WalknTours, then, register and follow instructions on the app, download it!!! Well, it was downloading and downloading, and downloading!!! After 1-1/2 hours, it was still telling me it was downloading! Well, we walked, visited different places, spent a few hours there, returned home, and the app stopped!!! Never was able to download anything!!! After paying twice, once for two people and another for one…. I have two apps, which didn’t work and don’t need!!!!!!! Needless to say, I’m deleting and NOT using ever again!
