I have never lodged at the "buffalo ranch" in Lamar Valley but i support the Yellowstone Association which works hand in hand with the Institute for education programs and materials. And I am grateful the institute's naturalists do not mind general public hanging onto their words or gravitating towards where there have setup their scopes for the wolves they track... More

Yellowstone Park is a great place to visit. When some of the animals decide to sit in the middle of the roadway, this always creates a "jam".whether it is elk/bison/bears they all cause the traffic to stop &everyone gets their cameras out, The excitement of the park is awsome

This is a wonderful program and provides a comprehensive look at all that is the gem of Yellowstone. There's not much better than the wildlife, geysers and other sights of the world's first national park! Well done! Phenomenal!

To see a Grizzly Bear! Experience Buffalo running free, Wolves howling, there is nothing better in the travel experience. The cleanest freshest air on earth. Views are so beautiful, geysers are like being in a super-NATURE world. Great accommodations thank you for keeping a wonder place for us to visit.

We had the most fun shopping at the Yellowstone Association Park Store at the West Thumb thermal geyser location in Yellowstone National Park. The West Thumb Information Center is also located here. It can be one of the busiest stores in Yellowstone. We liked their assortment of stuffed animals, wine, and books. They have much more here. The staff is... More

This tour was the best way to see the park. The accommodations and food were just ok. We did not expect much and we were not there for the food and lodging. We went to see Yellowstone, the animals, the thermal features and the rest nature had to offer. The guide was excellent, she took us to the major locations... More

Yes, it's expensive, BUT you really do get what you pay for. This is a lodging and learning program which included rooms/cabins at Mammoth, Old Faithful and Lake Yellowstone areas (all private bath), most meals, and transportation in the restored old Yellow Touring Cars/bus all over the Park for four days (five nights). The group is small (max nine, but... More
