We were picked up promptly at 6 a.m. with muffins and coffee ready and snacks for later. We were off on our adventure. Jessie was knowledgeable about all the animals and the area giving... More

We took the private guided tour of Yellowstone. Our guide, Sarah, was very familiar with the area and worked hard to connect with everyone in our group which included teenagers and grandparents. We really enjoyed seeing the wildlife and all of the beautiful sights that Yellowstone has to offer.

My friend and I did a morning private wildlife/photography trip with Sean Beckett from TSS. It was terrific. Sean, a biologist, was knowledgeable about the wildlife, and a photographer to boot. When I booked the trip, I mentioned that my friend was a serious, though amateur, photographer, and was bringing a number of lenses up to 600mm. TSS immediately booked... More

Sean rules. He can even order up perfect weather. He has the eyes of an eagle and the heart of a naturalist. He can drive well in crowded venues and answer the trickiest q with humour and substance.

Four-hour guided wildlife expedition with Sarah, a biologist with Teton Science Schools, was better than we'd dreamed. She knew all the best spots in the Grand Tetons and enabled us to see moose, elk, bison, a black bear, a pronghorn, and beavers. And she made the whole experience tons of fun. Highest recommendation for this nonprofit organization!!

Thank you for you praise for Dawson and our Wildlife Expeditions program. It always amazes me that we can fit so much wildlife viewing, natural history exploration and wild flower gazing in a 4 hour Sunrise or Sunset Expedition. Dawson is a distinguished naturalist with a diverse background of experiences. Thank you for sharing your images. - Jared Baecker More
