What You Can Expect

Grand Teton National Park Tour from Jackson Hole

Barn at Grand Teton

This tour begins at your Jackson hotel when you meet your professional guide, before boarding a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for the drive to Grand Teton National Park. After just a 30-minute drive north, through the valley of Jackson Hole, you’ll arrive at this world-renowned national park just 10 miles (16km) south of Yellowstone.

As you approach Grand Teton National Park, the first thing you’ll notice are the jagged peaks of Wyoming’s Teton Range as they cut across the sky. Upon entering Grand Teton National Park (entrance fee not included), your first stop will be at the historic Chapel of the Transfiguration — a cabin built in 1925 that originally accommodated guests and staff from the handful of nearby dude ranches.

From here you’ll continue to Menor’s Ferry, an historic ferry service across the Snake River that’s run since the late 1800s. It’s here where you’ll also see Maud Noble’s Cabin, a homestead where your guide will explain the lives of Wyoming’s early settlers.

With a healthy dose of Wyoming history now under your belt, you can really start to experience the legendary beauty that makes the national park famous. Stroll down the shores of Jenny Lake with its crystal-clear, alpine waters, and hear the stories of pioneering mountain men who crossed and conquered the Tetons.

You’ll stop to eat at a comfortable lodge where you can choose from various lunch options (own expense), before venturing out to Jackson Lake to absorb the alpine scenery. While here, listen as your guide explains how the park has dozens of species of mammals, as well as 300 bird species, and 1,000 species of plants.

Before you return to your Jackson Hotel, you’ll stop at the Colter Bay Visitor Center, where you can casually peruse a vast array of American Indian artifacts. On the drive back through Jackson Hole, keep your eyes peeled around the Oxbow Bend where it’s common to spot moose or deer.

This was such a wonderful day - seeing all the iconic vistas was a dream come true. Jesse shared so much history of Jackson Hole and our favorite experience was being up top on Signal Mountain. So glad the beauty is being preserved and we felt privileged to share our time with other travelers. Seeing the wildlife up close makes you feel like a kid again.

We had a great time on our trip. The scenery was breathtaking, the tour was well planned, and the guide interesting and informative. We saw things and visited places we would never have seen had we tried to make this tour on our own. Our tour guide was excellent. He suggested places to take photos and even used our camera to take photos of me and my wife. Overall it was a memorable experience I'd recommend.

Our guide Bob was fantastic! Knowledgeable and with a great passion for the beauty and history around us, Bob was everything you would wish for and more! The group was small and ready for adventure so as a whole we had a blast. We enjoyed all of the stops along the way and lunch overlooking the lake was spectacular. We learned so much about the creation and history of this gorgeous park and definitely walked away with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Grand Teton National Park.

The guide, Bob, was very knowledgeable about the area. We made many stops to see the scenery and learned about the history of the area. We did not see the elks but did see some bison. The wild flowers were in full bloom and gorgeous. There were only two families on the tour so we were able to ask a lot of questions. Bob adjusted the tour to accommodate our interests. A wonderful experience.

Excellent trip. Small bus with 8 people. Informative and enthusiastic Jesse was our driver/guide. Got to see and hear of the Tetons from every possible angle but not up into the mountains. Hotel pick up on time and back by 4PM.
