Our guide, Patrick, was super friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. He was smart about where to go to see the best animals, and he was nimble about changing course if he heard any other information from his colleagues leading other tours. Thanks to Patrick, we saw grizzly bears, a moose mama and baby, beavers building a dam, pronghorn scaring off aggression from a coyote, and a herd of elk running by us on the road and then crossing in front of us with the big proud buck bringing up the rear making sure the rest got across. Besides the wildlife, we saw the stunning geologic features that make Yellowstone famous.

Brian Stone was our tour guide. Very accommodating, knowledgeable, and welcoming person. He made the entire trip a lot enjoyable for all of us. Took us to Grand prismatic even if it wasnt part of the tour. All i can say is that the planning of this tour is very well thought. Who would have expected that binoculars were game changers during tours like this? Meals and drinks are yummy!!

Jeff was a great guide for a 12 hour day in the park. We saw elk, moose, bison and other animals that Jeff was able to spot! It was cool but we expected that since it was the last day the park was open. Old Faithful didn't disappoint. Overall it was a great time and we met new friends to experience this with. The crowds were low and we liked that!

It was good. The only thing was that the guide promised to send a picture of a bear on my phone closer and he never did.

Awesome experience! Would highly recommend. Worth the money
