I was lucky enough to be in the first group to visit Yellowstone this winter with Wildlife Expeditions in their new snowcoach. The Sprinters were comfortable, quiet, and the windows provided excellent viewing of wildlife and scenery. Sarah and Tom were entertaining, knowledgeable, and armed with lots of treats and coffee. Our stops at Old Faithful, West Thumb, the Firehole... More

I went on a half day wild life expedition with teton science school. I felt that the 4hrs trip was short & rather expensive. Nonetheless, we spotted some elks that day & the guide imparted her knowledge to us.

Our guide from the Teton Science Schools (TSS) was Dawson Smith. He picked us up promptly at 7:00 a.m. at the Bentwood Inn. He had hot coffee and water bottles ready for us, and provided us with binoculars and a spotting scope for the eight-hour expedition. Within the first 45 minutes we had seen a Big Horned Owl and a...

Our first trip to Wyoming was made with a wildlife discovery tour with Teton Science School and Sarah Cayea as our guide. We started off with seeing moose just off the road as the moon was setting over the Tetons with a beautiful sunrise. We took many back roads to a lovely hike and amazing vistas. Lunch at Signal Mountain... More

I saw more wildlife than I've seen on any excursion. Some of that is due to luck but a great deal of credit goes to our guide, Kevin Taylor, who knew where to take us. And he made what we saw so very interesting...explaining the reasons behind certain behaviors and sharing details about animals which made everything even more fun... More

My ten-year old son and I took the sunset four-hour tour of Grand Teton with Sara. Sara was a great guide and I am certain we would not have seen even a small percentage of the wildlife on our own. Sara was very engaging and developed a wonderful rapport with my son. He was captivated the entire time and agreed... More

The biologist we were assigned was very enthusiastic about sharing the wildlife in the area and giving us the time to take photographs. We had a great day with Jessie and will always remember the warm drinks, snacks and lunch we got to share with her. Her knowledge and passion for the Tetons was more than we expected and it... More
