What people are saying about Jackson, Wyoming

Absolutely fantastic! My guide was so knowledgeable and even though we had a lot of low hanging clouds for the most part it was so worth the tour. I learned so much about the wildlife and the area. I can’t say enough good about the trip and my guide. He was friendly and so informative. Best part of my trip! Thank you for a great time to my guide and the interns!

The tour was awesome. Saw so many things that one wouldn't normally see in their lifetime. Our tour guide James made our tour very memorable with all his knowledge of the parks, history and stories. Never a dull moment. It's a must do and see. We highly recommend the tour, you won't regret it. Totally awesome!!

Our guide, David, was very pleasant and knowledgeable with a bit a humor. David seemed just the right fit for us. His partner/wife was also pleasant and contributed with her own pieces of knowledge at times. I would do the tour with them again as guides. Excellent

The trip was excellent and the guide(Jeff) was extremely informative and considerate of everyone on the tour. We had plenty of time to enjoy the park and we’re provided with excellent information about the park and it’s animals and sights.

Amazing nature! Perfect timing on a sunny day in spring. Still lots of snow which makes the pictures even better. Not so many people in the parc.
