“This should be on you list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

More interesting the Old Faithful. Full of geyers which are predictable, although some of the predictions involve hours or days. Still, you're sure to see some action on the easy to navigate boardwalk.

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Everyone should go to Yellowstone at least once in their life. This is such a National Treasure. Everywhere you turn is something more beautiful and other worldly. IT's so hard to imagine. Xanterra does a wonderful job with this park. Everything moves efficiently

“This area is near Old Faithful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This whole area including the Upper, Middle and Lower Geyser basins all have great color and incredible sights. Take time to see at least some of them when you in the vicinity to see Old Faithful.

“Just Do It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Make sure to do the whole walk and see the whole basin. Have a little something to eat at the many food concessions, then watch Old Faithful once or twice.

“Stinks Very BAD”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Upper Geyser Basin is pretty and all, but the steam will blind you and smells like sulfur (or rotten eggs.) The stink will stick to your hair and the rest of your body. It can knock a buzzard off a gut wagon! If you inhale too much steam, it will make you nauseous, and possibly throw up. Beware! You may want to bring a gas mask!
