Quick review to note that this day expedition is well worth the cost and then some. Our guide, Dawson, had deep, extensive knowledge on just about every topic we brought up and a terrific, easy-going personality to boot. Just the kind of guy you want to have around while exploring...so much fun we often forgot he was our 'guide' rather... More

Kimber was our guide. She was excellent . We saw moose , elk , bear , bison , bald eagle and pronghorn . Having a guide meant we went down routes we would have otherwise avoided being unconfident off the beaten track. Lunch included in our tour.

Kimber is an excellent guide. We are glad that Kimber was able to share areas and habitats of Grand Teton National Park that you wouldn't have found on your own. It is important to know that all of the areas that we visit are open to the public. But as a local operation our insights allow us to know what... More

Sean was our guide and he had the eyes of an eagle to spot moose in the willows. Loved the fact that scope and binoculars were provided so that we didn't have to bring our own. He was a knowledgeable biologist, too. I took a point off because it took three times with the booking office to get my reservation... More
