We were with four other couples. All of us felt that the tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Dan Stoudt, was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make everyone happy with the tour. We highly recommend this tour especially if you are into photography.

Our group consisted of 5 couples. The trip was well planned so that we could visit/see multiple areas of the Tetons and Yellowstone. The van was comfortable.

We had a very impressive guide, Daniel S, who knew SO much about the Tetons and Yellowstone. Daniel was friendly, courteous, patient as well as an excellent driver. He had vast knowledge of nature/wildlife specific to the areas and had such vast respect for the land and its animals. He could spot bears and other small animals with naked eye. He provided excellent descriptions of the animals/habitats. He allowed plenty of time to spot the animals to take pictures etc. and observe these animals in their habitats. Daniel demonstrated plenty of concern for the safety of people and animals.

We saw eagles, deer, moose, wolves 13, coyote, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elk, grizzly bears, black bears and 1000s bison!!!

Fantastic, we were on a 4day tour that normally has 9 guests, turned out we were the only 2.
We had a personalized tour with a guide that was both extremely knowledgeable and personable.
Had the pleasure of viewing 13 bear, a wolf feeding on a recent kill, along with thousands of bison, elk and other animals.
The highlight of the trip was a Mama bear with her 3 cubs, so close you could almost reach out and touch them.
The tour went smoothly and the vehicle was comfortable.
Would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see Yellowstone and Grand Teton, mountains and animals.

Great Trip. We are in our sixties and have some back issues so next time we would only take a 2 to 3 day trip. The seats in the van were not good for us. Otherwise the trip was great and so was our guide.
