What You Can Expect

Grand Teton National Park Tour from Jackson Hole

Barn at Grand Teton

You’ll be picked up from your Jackson hotel in the early morning for a 30-minute drive north by comfortable air-conditioned coach to Grand Teton National Park, located 10 miles (16 km) south of Yellowstone. This world-renowned park includes the major peaks of the 40-mile-long (64 km) Teton Range of the Rocky Mountains, as well as most of the northern sections of the valley known as Jackson Hole.

After entering the park (entrance fee at additional cost), stop at the Chapel of the Transfiguration, a small log cabin built in 1925 to serve the guests and employees of the nearby dude ranches. Listed on the US National Register of Historic Places, the chapel frames a views of the tallest peaks of the Teton Range, known as the Cathedral Group.

Continue to Menor’s Ferry, a Snake River ferry serving the Jackson Hole area in the late 1800s. Here, you'll also visit Maud Noble’s Cabin, another site listed on the US National Register of Historic Places. As you walk around the homestead, you'll learn how the area’s early pioneers once lived from your guide.

After your interesting historical visits, it’s time to appreciate Grand Teton National Park’s epic beauty. Venture to crystal-clear Jenny Lake to gaze in amazement at the Tetons and learn about historical mountain men such as Jim Bridger, John Colter and Beaver Dick.

Next, stop at one of the park's lodges for lunch -- there are several dining options to choose from (own expense). Your afternoon starts with a visit to the shores of Jackson Lake to soak up more views of the serene landscape and point out some wildlife, flora and fauna. As your guide will explain, this region is home to more than 1,000 species of plants, dozens of species of mammals, 300 species of birds and several species of fish, reptiles and amphibians. A surprising fact: The park’s pristine ecosystem is home to many species of flora and fauna that have existed since prehistoric times!

Your last stop in the park is the Colter Bay Visitor Center, where you can observe a vast array of never-before-seen Indian artifacts. On the way back to Jackson, pass the Oxbow Bend of the Snake River to view moose, eagles, beaver and other wildlife. You'll arrive back at your hotel at approximately 3:30pm.

We were able to book two tours. One of Yellowstone and one of the Grand Tetons. Both the areas and the tours were magnificent! I would highly recommend taking the tours. You are able to see so much more of the beauty of Yellowstone and the Tetons. Anyone who hasn't visited these areas is missing out on the experience of a lifetime.

We had a relatively not so good weather on our day to Grand Teton - the morning is lovely, but the afternoon is raining. But our guide Jeffery is super! His way of guiding us and introducing us the sights is simply calm but makes us more into the mother nature itself. Highly recommended!

Excellent tour! Jeffrey picked us up promptly at our hotel, and the next 8 hours were filled with excitement. Jeffrey is an enthusiastic tour guide whose vast knowledge for exceeded our expectations. He drove us places that we wouldn't have found or dared to travel to on our own. We made many stops, and each time, Jeffrey was out of the van pointing out attractions and taking photographing us. We'll have lots of wonderful memories when we return home. Jane and David

A good tour for a very affordable price - the tour meets all significant checkpoints of the Grand Teton National Park coupled with a myriad of tales and nuggets of information from the guide. Though I was told that the tour differs from tour guide to tour guide, the guide for this trip, Jeffrey, brought his zeal and personality to the trip - adding a tinge of the local spirit and gregarious attitude throughout the entire trip. Thematically-based facts and stories told by Jeffrey definitely added a local edge to this trip that would otherwise be a simple, lacklustre tour that could have been done by any random touring company. All in all, it was a short, fun trip filled with entertaining stories and tales to take home.

Jeffrey was our guide for the Grand Teton tour. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. The tour was a full 8 hour event that passed very quickly. Jeffrey made the day very enjoyable and memorable. We were shown beautiful sites and told interesting historical stories about the area. It was a great blend of riding in the van and getting out to experience and photograph the beautiful area. I defiantly recommend this awesome adventure.

I highly recommend this tour, especially our tour guide, Jeffrey. He was very pleasant, respectful and a pleasure to have as a guide. Most importantly, he is very knowledgeable on all aspects of earth science and especially, about Grand Teton National Park.. He certainly made our eight hour tour very interesting and memorable.

Absolutely the best tour for seening, doing, and photographing the Tetons. Jessie, our tour guide was very personable, highly knowledgeable, and went out of his way when he learned we were photographers on our first visit to the area! Recommend for anyone to experience the grandeur and majestic scenes of the Tetons. The small van was very enjoyable for the 8 people.
