What You Can Expect

Yellowstone National Park Tour from Jackson

Yellowstone National Park

Start the day with an early morning pickup from your Jackson Hole hotel. You’ll drive for two hours in an air conditioned coach as you travel from Jackson to Yellowstone, admiring the sweeping, mountainous views of Grand Teton National Park. Upon entering Yellowstone National Park, you’ll visit the Lower Loop’s main attractions — including Old Faithful geyser. Gaze in wonder at Lewis Canyon as well as Lewis Lake.

You’ll next be transported towards Firehole River, which is home to the multi-hued, endlessly fascinating, colorful Fountain Paint Pot. Comprised of yellows, browns, and reds that are caused by iron in the mud, the Fountain Paint Pot, as your guide will explain, is one of Yellowstone’s naturally occurring geologic wonders. 

Next, drive through the steam filled Geyser Basin towards the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone — a 20-mile (32-km) cleft in the earth that’s home to Yellowstone Falls. Watch as the water flows peacefully through the canyon before plunging over the falls, which is not only one of America’s tallest, but also one of its most famous. 

Continue the drive through the rolling grasslands of bison filled Hayden Valley, where in addition to herds of powerful bison exploring the open terrain, there’s even the chance you could spot a wolf as it prowls the windswept grass. 

Finally, your Yellowstone tour from Jackson Hole concludes at the Lake Hotel — a historic spot with a view gazing out over massive Yellowstone Lake. On the comfortable drive back to Jackson Hole, you can scroll through your camera and relive the beauty of America’s first national park, or stare out the window as the sun sinks low over Grand Teton National Park.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Yellowstone NP. David, our guide and bus driver, was most excellent. Very personable, friendly, knowledgeable and considerate of his guests. The bus was more of a large van ( about 25 seat capacity) that was comfortable but had no drink holders or overhead storage. David was very considerate of bathroom breaks and made all the stops and more that one would expect to see in Yellowstone on the Lower Loop route. The trip from Jackson took about twelve hours so it is a long day but WELL WORTH the trip. Again kudos to David for making the trip so enjoyable.

Tour guide was excellent and we crammed in as much as was conceivably possible into a one-day tour. He kept checking the geyser times and was able to figure out that Old Faithful and Castle would go off around the same time and made sure we were there to see it! The springs were excellent, got some great photos of the various falls, and he knew his stuff and knew how to wind us in and out around the crowds and stalled traffic. Got to see a buffalo from a safe distance too. The tour was very good on seeing the important stuff, and touching on lots of other stuff, so now we know what we would do if we came back for a longer trip and wanted to explore some things more in depth. Provided lunch was sandwiches, chips, and canned drinks -- simple and somehow they made the sandwiches not soggy unlike on other day trips or tours I've been on. We looked hard to settle on the best one-day tour of Yellowstone, and this certainly lived up to that goal. Highly recommend!

This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was so intelligent and delightful. I started taking group tours many years ago and this was one of the best. We saw so many animals and our guide was able to show us a moose and her baby near the water. How lucky were we?

Epic tour from start from finish! Our tour guide Mike Spotts was a cornucopia of tips, facts, trivia and a pretty good driver too!The Van was spacious and comfortable which took us to all the really cool spots. Mike timed Old Faithful perfect and was a professional with the camera whether it was his or one of ours! He even shared a picture album of stunning photos by his son Isaac! The weather was perfect, our entire tour group was ready for action and adventure and Mike did not disappoint. Stops were plentiful many pictures were taken, bathroom breaks were bountiful. A special shout out to Andrew and Tammy from Calif Fred and Sandra from Texas Jake and Kristina from Arizona Andi from Colorado for making it a memorable trip! The scenery was spectacular, the bison were big, the birds were beautiful, the elk were excellent, the falls were falling and fabulous and thermals were thermaling and nobody died... : ! I highly recommend this tour and our Tour Guru Mike! A job well done my friend! Adios and Vios Con Dios

We had a wonderful trip as we were lucky to see various wildlife such as bears, in addition to the key wonders/scenery of Yellowstone. Our guide, Jesse, was extremely thorough and knowledgeable about the various sites and wildlife we saw, while ensuring we had sufficient free time for short walks at various sites.His depth of knowledge on numerous subjects was impressive. We highly recommend this tour.

Except for the company operator advising us to be ready for pickup at 6:30 AM an hour early, this trip was awesome. There were six in the group, and our guide, Jessie, made us feel comfortable from the first minute. He talked about Yellowstone like he had grown up in it. His information about its history and the geography, animal sightings, and getting us to some of the park's most notable locations gave us as much as we could take in in one day! He was very attentive to the needs of all of us, and at the end of the day, the experience was well worth the money. His love of his job and the area is infectious!

This has to be one of the most fantastic day trips i have ever taken and I've taken quite a few. I saw all the things I have been waiting 60 years to see: geysers, waterfalls, pools of colorful micro-organisms, mud pots, and more. We saW bison and coyote, swans and ravens. We saw old trees, new trees, fire-damaged trees, and wide open meadows. No bears - but then I've seen lots of bears. Our guide, Jesse O'Connor, was extremely knowledgeable and filled the trip with history, geology and stories. He lives in Jackson Hole. What was so great was that he kept track of geysers and made sure we saw all his favorites, even if it meant changing the itinerary on the fly. TAKE THIS TRIP!
