What people are saying about Wyoming

Shane was an absolutely AMAZING and very entertaining guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much! His timing was impeccable. We saw Old Faithful right on time. We also were so fortunate to catch the Steamboat geyser going too! I can’t even begin to say how much wildlife we saw. Grizzly 793 (Blondie) with 3 cubs. Either we saw her twice the same day or we also saw Grizzly 610 with 3 cubs. We saw hundred and hundreds of bison. 2 crossed in front of us and then went along side the bus, like within 3 feet! We saw hundreds of elk. Tons of pronghorns. We saw 4 wolves. They were off at a distance, but could see them with binoculars and spotting scope. We were treated to see a beaver come right out close to the road and cut down a bush to take back to his house. On our way back, we were hoping for moose and low and behold, we saw a young one freshly on its own, then we saw 3 more females, 1 of which had a calf. Highly recommend this your and Shane as a guide.

We had a fantastic trip to Yellowstone! Ben was our guide and was 10-out-of-10! Ben picked us up at our front door of our Lodge in Teton Village. The small shuttle bus was new, clean and spacious! Ben took us to some extra stops and multiple stops anytime we saw wildlife. We saw all of the famous sites of Yellowstone including Bison, Moose, and a Grizzly Bear with cubs! I would highly recommend this day trip and ask for Ben, as he was the BEST!

This tour exceeded all expectations. Our guide Shane was the best guide we ever had. He was very personable, extremely knowledgeable and made sure we saw the best of everything. The van was clean and comfortable and the breakfast and lunch that were provided hit the spot. Shane had lots of water on hand for everyone and made it a point to know what each person wanted to see most. Really amazing trip.

It was worth every $. Could not have possibly packed more into the day. We saw so much - bison, moose, elk, bear with cubs, hot springs, including Old Faithful. Our tour guide Ben was fabulous- so accommodating and super friendly. So glad we did this tour.

Nick was a great guide. Very informative and flexible. We saw almost everything on our list!
