What people are saying about Wyoming

I have had a few tours with Yellowstone day tours. Today didn’t disappoint. I had an awesome guide his name was Jeff. He was knowledgeable, attentive and funny. He made the 12ish hour day great. He listened to our wants and needs and accommodated us his best to suit the group as a whole. We seen a few of the major attractions in southern Yellowstone. We seen a ton of wildlife. I would recommend this trip to anyone. I have done it alone and felt very a part of a family.

This was a great tour to see the Grand Tetons. The boat ride on Jenny Lake and then the short hike up the mountain was fun. Clara our guide was very informative and she has lots of energy and excitement about the Grand Tetons.

My girls and I had a great time! I'd highly suggest this trip. It's fun and easy and not too challenging. The weather was perfect, although the water still a bit cold but we were prepared.

This ride was exhilarating and exciting with every paddle, turn, and dips.

It was amazing! The guide was great and personable
