Review of: Rainforest Tour
This tour was so great! Jeff was our guide and he couldn’t have been nicer. It was our honeymoon so he brought us a little cake to eat while we sat on Sunset Rock. This is definitely the thing to do when first getting to highlands. He gave us the inside scoop about the restaurants, hiking spots, and shops. He was so knowledgeable and we could tell how in love with the city and the surrounding nature he is. He even gave us some tips for getting the most out of our iPhone pictures. Will be a treasured memory for us!

We had the best time! Justin is the absolute best. Every time I’ve toured with him, I learn something new about this beautiful town. This is at the top of my “must do when I’m in Highlands” list. I highly recommend this tour. You will be so glad you did it!!

This was one of the best I’ve ever been on! Justin the guide was super great. He was so knowledgeable of the area and of many things. He is funny and very kind. He made this so relaxed and personal. We will definitely be booking other tours with him!!!

Review of: Rainforest Tour
We did the gem mining tour with our 3 young kids, 4, 4 & 6 and it was so much fun! Justin was a great tour guide! He was so knowledgeable and he took care of every detail! He picked us up from our rental house and we saw several amazing waterfalls! We also went gem mining at the Jackson Hole Gem Mine and the kids had so much fun! They all found great gems and each had a necklace made. We then went to a little stream/river and the kids got to play in the water and Justin started a little fire for the kids to roast marshmallows for s’mores! They were chocolate chip cookie s’mores, so fun! He also brought his dog Aussie along for the fun, after asking us if we were ok with digs ahead of time and our kids LOVED Aussie so much!!! It was truly a great trip and I would highly recommend this for families with kids of all ages!
