Our guide Scott was great, a wealth of knowledge about the history and animals of Yellowstone. We saw a almost every animal Yellowstone has to offer. He allowed plenty of time to see the sites on the tour. Would definitely recommend. Great Gide and a good group of people with us

We loved this trip!! Nate was fantastic and we had a great group as well! Nate was so knowledgeable and answered all the questions we could throw at him. And though the forecast was for rain all day, it was nice until we were done and headed home! How lucky could we be! Thank you Nate for your trip guidance! You were awesome!

We loved the tour and our tour guide, Nate! Communication was great - they confirmed a few days in advance. Nate called the morning of to let us know he was within 5 minutes. The van was clean and comfortable. We stopped at all the highlights. Since we were on tour, we parked close or in loading zones, this was appreciated as my father has limited mobility. Lunch from Ernie’s was fantastic! There was water available throughout the tour. Binoculars provided for use. Plenty of stops at restrooms. Nate entertained the tour group with lots of information about Yellowstone and challenged us to challenge him. It was a super day!
