The day we spent viewing wildlife in Yellowstone was one of the highlights of our trip. We were hoping to see wolves but knew that August might not be the best time to see them: well we saw a mother wolf and then 4 puppies playing. Having Michael there to explain and educate us was incredible; as a former ranger,... More

Our guide gave us everything we hoped for and then some. The best stories, coyote's, wolves (no not a three dog day alas), bears. Wonderful breakfast, great coffee (no I will not reveal how you make the coffee), and a wonderful hike to finish it all off. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

March is not the best time to visit as its the shoulder between winter and summer and a lot is closed. Also the weather cant make up its mind what it wants to do. on the good side, its was VERY quiet with a small number of visitors making it super easy to get around without dealing with any crowds....

We just got home from our trip out west. Saw Glacier NP, Yellowstone NP, & Grand Teton NP. The day with Leo was the highlight of the whole trip! We were just hoping to see a wolf. Anything else would be a bonus. Well, let us tell you that Leo hit a HOME RUN!!! Not only did we see 8-10... More

We met Bonnie our guide at 5am in Gardiner. It was amazing to be out in the park so early. Bonnie knew exactly where to take us to see the wildlife we had expressed the most interest in seeing- Bears and Wolves! She was good company and extremely knowledgeable about everything in the park-not just the predators!! We had refreshments... More

This was the highlight of our trip. We spent half a day with Mike. He was the nicest guy. Super knowledgeable. We got to see the alpha male and pups. We loved having the ability to use the long distance scopes that they provide. Our 9 yr old son clicked with Mike and he made it so much fun that... More

We had a great day of wildlife viewing. Our wonderful guide Bonnie picked us up at our hotel and shortly thereafter we were watching wolves and their pups through excellent spotting scopes. We later enjoyed an open air breakfast surrounded by nature and continued on to see bears, bison, big horns, ospreys and coyotes. Bonnie was both personable and knowledgeable.... More

This was the highlights of our time in Yellowstone. We wanted to see wolves and we saw (and heard) plenty of them. This year is an exceptional year to see the wolves because the wolf den is in plain sight. So there is some skill and luck involved in how many wolves you get to see. It was fun to... More

We were a family of 19, therefore, we traveled in two vehicles. We started out about 5:30 in the morning. Our guides, Linda and Rob were very knowledgeable about the park and the animals that live there. Because we toured in June we were able to see new baby animals. We saw bear cubs, a wolf den and even Moose... More

Remarkable guide did a fabulous job introducing our group of 4 to upper Yellowstone. Saw wolves and cubs in several places. Spotted mountain goats and one with snow white baby bopping around the high elevation cliffs. Owlets in nest waiting to be fed. Black and grizzly bears. Male pronghorn chasing female no more than a few yards from our SUV.... More
