The half-day we spent with Kevin was one of the highlights of our trip to Jackson Hole. There were 11 family members in the van -- from age 7 to age 74. He was congenial, patient, full of information about the area, flora and fauna, and made extra effort to ensure that the 7 grandchildren were involved, interested, and excited.... More

Thank you for allowing us to share Grand Teton National Park with 3 generations of your family. It takes a skilled individual to educate, entertain and accommodate the wide spectrum of ages, Kevin is truly an expert at this.
