Where do I begin? Sarah was our tour guide and her knowledge of the area was incredible. This was our first time out to Idaho/Wyoming and it was something we will never forget. Sarah knew where to go so we were able to see Moose, Bison, Mule Deer, Elk, Big Horn Sheep, an immature Eagle, and a coyote. For me she was so much more than just a tour guide, she helped me with my little kids and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable. She made the day feel like it was spent with family. I highly recommend this guided tour, it was private and everything I wanted and more!!!

Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. We didn’t see a lot of wildlife, but he tried hard to find us some. Went several different place to locate some. It was a very nice time. The van was so comfortable and warm.

It was enjoyable experience, the guide was very informative and funny made sure everyone is comfortable and had an amazing time! Can’t wait to do it again in the summer I bet we will spot different animals like bears.

Great experience. Kelsie, our guide, went above and beyond. Saw lots of animals and learned a lot!

I loved this tour. I saw all the animals and our tour guide George was THEE best!!!
