Our guide was very knowledgeable and was very motivated to enable us to see as much wildlife as possible. He asked us what we were most interested in seeing and positioned us for the best vantage point to view the animals once we stopped. The scope and binoculars provided were excellent tossed them as up close as we were allowed to get to remain safe.

Kevin was a wonderful guide for us! We were able to see everything we wanted to see (except a bear), and we did it with lots of fun stories and a car load of laughs! We highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to the Jackson Hole area!

Our guide, Natalie, was extremely knowledgeable and understanding of our beginner status. She really made all of us feel confident and comfortable. Great experience.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very attentive to our needs. The pace and options of the tour were also well planned.

I learned so much! The narrator was interesting and informative. Excellent self driving tour.
