Wow! What can I say about this adventure that almost never happened! We had Yellowstone Wild booked for a tour for over a year and two weeks before our scheduled trip, the flood happened. YW maintained contact with us and informed us about the evolving situation. Yellowstone made it possible to enter the park through a service road available only to commercial traffic and with limited hours of entry/exit. Thanks to YW we were able to enter the park and have a great time! Our guide Travis, was very knowledgeable and kind. Our family consisted of Ten people from ages 3.5 to 75 with a disability. Travis was very thoughtful in planning our stops to accommodate everyones abilities. We did the wildlife tour on day one and experienced Grizzly Bear, Elk, Coyote, Bison,Trumpeter Swans and even Leeches! The second day we visited the Thermal features highlighted with a good hike to the Grand Prismatic spring overlook. Our guide timed our picnic at Old faithful perfectly as the geyser erupted as we ate our lunch. The scones and coffee provided in the morning were delicious . Yellowstone wild provided an experience and created memories that will last a lifetime!

This was our second tour using Yellowstone Wild. Our last visit was hard to top with seeing a homeless man of a tour guide from another company almost thrash a 100k Mercedes van. We had such a great experience that we requested Kyle again. Kyle can't escape me since I bother him on Instagram and keep up with his film festival winning documentary. Kyle picked us up from Mammoth Hot springs and this time I had my equally sarcastic mini-me of a daughter with us. We were worried she would be bored with the tour. She is normally very quiet around strangers. However, Kyle made the tour amazing as usual and had her talking non-stop. We saw wolves, bear, birds, elk, bison, goats, deer, and sheep. He made the tour fun and interesting. We had many laughs and he worked hard as usual to get us the best view of the wolves. He was kind to others, even when a random person walked up and looked into our scope like they owned the thing. I highly recommend using Yellowstone Wild. We were lucky and were in the park just a few days before the floods occured. If you are going to Yellowstone, this tour is worth it. Don't get scammed by other tour groups that charge you three times as much to be driven around by people who shouldn't (and might actually not have licenses) be driving almost wreck you into a ditch and combat roll out of the van and ask another guide if they saw wolves. If you have realistic expectations, and realize Yellowstone isn't a zoo and the animals go where they want to... Then this tour is worth every penny. Kyle even gave us some hot tips of where to go later in the day and we saw a momma grizzly and her cubs.

We were privileged to take 2 separate tours with this wonderful company. One that focused on the the incredible wildlife that the park has to offer, the other highlighting the amazing geysers and other natural wonders. Our guides, Rob and Matt, were experts in finding the best viewing locations, and ensured that our groups were able to see as much of the park as possible within our allotted time. The vans used were clean, comfortable, and equipped with binoculars, telescopes, water, coffee and cocoa. This company was very easy to work with, and provided us first time visitors with experiences we shall never forget.

Yellowstone WIld TOurs is top notch for the vehicle, the equipment, the guide, and even the food! (fresh, home made chocolate chip scones for breakfast!) We saw lots of wildlife up close and learned a lot along the tour. We loved our guide, Laura!
