We booked this tour with Jared (the owner) not quite knowing what to expect. We went on the wild life viewing tour. Jared was the most knowledgeable person I have ever met in this profession. He knew about all the wild life, history of the park, about the plants, etc. Not only that, but he knew where the wild life... More

We had a excellent tour with Jared. We left at 5 am to find wildlife. We were not disappointed. We saw Elk, Moose, big horn sheep and other wildlife. He was very knowledgeable about the park, the animals and the area in general. He was very flexible with the time, what we wanted to do and how long we spent... More

My daughter (16) and I took the tour, and couldn't have been more pleased. Jared has a way of explaining photography and how to use our cameras that we, previously never venturing off the standard preset settings, were able to understand the rudiments of aperture, ISO, and shutter speed. And we took some amazing pictures! Highly recommend Yellow Wood Guiding.

At first I wasn't sure what type of tour I wanted to take (landscape, wildlife, etc). Jared was very patient over email, and I finally decided on a wildlife tour focused on small mammals (fox, coyote, marmot, pika, etc). Jared is very knowledgeable about the animals in the park, as well as photography. He shared a few really good tips... More

I'm a professional photographer and I've never used a photo-guide before so I was unsure how Jared would adjust to my needs. After asking me a few questions as we got started he easily altered his routine to match what I was looking for and we had a great time. He is deeply knowledgable about how and exactly where to...

I booked up the Mill Creek Lake hiking trail with Jared and it was great. Jared as others have mentioned is like a walking encyclopedia, talk about knowing your job! The hike itself was amazing reaching Mill Creek Lake was so satisfying and the the views...my gosh! It was unbelievable, like my big eyes couldn't soak in all its amazingness!... More

that phrase is used too often, but in this case I really mean it. Spending a few hours with Jared was not only about seeing wildlife (which we did) or finding out about Estes Park (which we did), but also about interesting conversation on a wide range of subjects - population, evolution, ecology, environment - the universe! Thanks Jared. We... More

Jared was an outstanding guide in every way! Prompt, professional, and very knowledgeable!We took a wildlife safari tour and added landscapes on the tundra the first day, June 14th, and a sunrise hiking tour to Dream Lake on June 15th, 2014. Jared is a great photography instructor, helping with settings, composition, lighting, and lots of photography tips to help you... More

Jared took my daughter and out on Father's Day (6/15/14) for a great photo tour. We both learned a lot from him. And he worked patiently with her to teach her how to use her Nikon, photo skills, and such she would not have learned in school.

My husband and I had two sessions with Jared on a recent visit to RMNP. His entire focus was to make our experience enjoyable, and to share his knowledge and love of the area. Jared is a wizard with the camera, and was able to help customize my equipment to obtain the results I wanted. His knowledge of wildlife, and... More
