We saw a fox hunting a rabbit, osprey, bison, elk and a bighorn sheep as well as a few bear and two cubs. The tour guide was great, the people with us were great and a group of... read more

We were picked up at the Canyon Lodge at 6:15 for a five hour tour through Lamar Valley. Our guide, David, was terrific, very knowledgeable and personable, and clearly loves Yellowstone and wildlife. We had a chance to see a herd of bison up close a few times, including waiting for them to cross the road in front of us!... More

This is Yellowstone and of course the animals don't respond on cue, but our guide knew where to look and we saw animals we would have missed. The mountain goats look like dots on the cliffs, but the guide showed us where to look and we got some wonderful pictures. The Lamar Valley is huge and it helped to have... More

We saw a fox hunting a rabbit, osprey, bison, elk and a bighorn sheep as well as a few bear and two cubs. The tour guide was great, the people with us were great and a group of four did not show up, the guide was pretty happy with that because he said they tend to overcrowd the "busses" and... More

We did the Wake Up to Wildlife Tour as part of the Trail of the Wolf snowmobile package in Feb 2015. You depart from the Mammoth Hot Springs hotel while it is still dark in a comfortable van. It is about 18 miles from the hotel to the Roosevelt Tower intersection, then another 15 or so miles through the Lamar... More

This tour was wonderful. In fact, I booked it again for another day. The drivers were very knowledgeable. We left the Mammoth hotel at 7 AM while it was still dark. The guides told us about the geology and history of the area. When the sun came up we all looked for wildlife.The guides would stop (if it was safe... More

I took the Wake up to Wildlife tour from the Mammoth Hotel area. This required a 6:15am departure time. Note that from this area, you will drive about 1 hour to the Roosevelt Lodge area to pick up other guests and then finally make your way to Lamar Valley. By the time you get to Lamar Valley though, the sun... More

We took the Wake Up to Yellowstone tour that left from Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone on the morning after our arrival at Yellowstone. This was a great introduction to where to look for wildlife. Cody was our tour guide and he had lots of information about the animals as well as stories about the park. Our bus was an... More

Our tour guide James was great. He was funny, friendly, and knowledgeable. We saw buffalo, moose, pronghorn, baby falcons, bighorn sheep, bald eagles, elk, and ground squirrels. We didn't get to see any bears, but we had a great day overall!

Excellent tour. Our guide was friendly and weel-educated. We saw bears, foxes, a bald eagle, osprey nesting, bison, and prong-horn. Fun on the historic bus with the top down.

We paid $83 per person for the Wake Up to Wildlife tour, which departed from Roosevelt Lodge. First, our tour started 15 minutes late. We are paying for the time, and the time was not made up, so we essentially lost 15 minutes. Our tour guide took us mostly to Lamar Valley, which we had driven the previous day. We... More
