I had a wonderful trip with Gina.
Everything went very smoothly and was perfectly organized. Gina paid attention to all the little details. She shared her extensive knowledge of bears and wildlife. I could not hope for anything better and the trip exceeded my expectations. Lots of animals, beautiful sceneries and a lot of fun.
Highly recommended, for solo travellers, couples or families.
Many thanks!

Thank you for coming out with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your time here in Yellowstone and the Tetons with Gina. She is our best guide. It was great to see the Rescue Creek wolves and grizzly bears along with all of the other wildlife. Thank you again.

I spent 3 days with Gina and Jack with the goal of photographing some big animals and learning more about my equipment. We found bison, elk (including a morning crossing of 1,000+ elk), mountain goats, long horn sheep, otter, coyotes and bald eagles. The wonderful photographic opportunities, matched with Gina and Jack’s enthusiasm for the parks and wildlife, made for a fantastic trip. The super bonus was how much I learned about my equipment and techniques. Highly, highly recommend!

Spent four days with Team399 and could not have asked for a better experience. I saw pretty much everything on my wish list - but that’s not what made the trip special. We all know YNP is not a zoo, so sometimes you must be persistent and work to witness amazing animal sightings. To that end, Team399 had the experience, knowledge and tapped into professional resources that enhanced our opportunities. Beyond that, Team399 was incredibly personable and checked all the boxes related to travel and accommodations. I am thankful they were able to make this adventure a memorable one. I chose this time of year to avoid the summer crowds so that also contributed to the experience. It would be wise to consider the best time of year to enhance the animal viewing if that is your focus.

Great experience with Jack and Gina. It was great that they picked us up at our ABnB and off we went. Our goal was wildlife and they did all they could to make that happen. We saw moose, Bald Eagles, Fritter, a sweet grizzly, river otters, Proghorns, coyote and some amazing scenery. They went above and beyond to show us a great time. Listened to some amazing stories and then stopped for some yummy muffins they provided. They were also considerate enough to let my husband sit up front because he gets car sick riding in the back. The SUV was awesome and comfortable. Jack and Gina were a pleasure to spend 6 hours with. Both have a great sense of humor. In addition, if you continue to visit the park after your tour, they will even text you info of sightings happening in the park. That was a nice bonus. I would highly recommend Team 399 for that personal touch. I would go again in a heart beat. Sadly, we didn't get to see beautiful 399, but maybe next time. Fabulous job Jack and Gina. Thank you.

I can not even put into words how amazing this private wildlife tour was. I was fortunate enough to spend 5 days with Jack & Gina and saw more than I ever expected. My main goal was to try and see 399 and although she had left the park they definitely delivered many other amazing grizzlies. In all I saw 399's daughter 610 & her 3 cubs, Bruno, Fritter & Jam. We also saw black bears, pronghorn antelope, rams, elk, moose, bison and coyotes. They literally made a dream come true that will always be grateful for. They are both really great people that are truly out there to protect these bears. I learned so much about grizzlies and how fragile their fate is even in these protected parks. I will definitely be back in the Spring!

We are so grateful you let us show you our bears in Grand Teton and Yellowstone. We are glad you enjoyed all the other splendor both parks have to offer as well. Thank you for recognizing the fragile, perilous state of grizzly bears. We look forward to seeing you again.

If you want to see animals, or if you want to see scenery, this is your tour. We had been to Jackson 18 years ago, and they showed us a whole new side to this beautiful area. We are not photographers, but my wife was looking to get some pictures that she could paint after we got home. It is so important to find the right places to take pictures - not just this turn off, or this trail, but this spot, at this time, when the sun is at a certain angle - etc. They put us in those spots again and again. And if you are looking for animals, they are in constant contact with people throughout the Tetons that can put you in areas where animals have been spotted. Jack and Gina clearly know and love the area, and that makes for a great day in the park.

This was my first trip with Team 399 and Jack, I booked a whole day trip. Jack was very good at making sure I saw what I wanted to see, we saw 610 and her cubs and had almost an hour with her alone along with many other animals. Jack is very knowledgeable both on the area and animals as well as photography. I highly recommend Team 399, I will book next time I am in the area.

Our first tour with Jack and Gina was so outstanding in June 2021 , so we decided to spend the day with them again in June 2023. If you want to see GRIZZLY 399 or other bears definitely take a tour with TEAM 399, our two tours with Jack and Gina were fantastic in locating wildlife and possible movements to get us in great position for images. We will definately be contact Jack and Gina on future vacations to GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK. We highly recommend spending a day with TEAM 399 for a vacation memory.

My wife and I spent a half day with Gina and Jack. Everything about the trip woked out beautifully, even though we had to go to plans B or C due to weather and or the wildlife not cooperating. We were able to see grizzly bear and other wildlife plus visit many beautiful landscape scenes. They listened to our wants and desires and tried to give us the best experience. They are very interesting people with a passion for the area. Jack was also very knowledgeable regarding my camera equipment and helped me get some images that I wanted to get.Very enjoyable day.

My and my husband's experience was great.
I was struck by the high professionalism of the guides who did their utmost in a thousand ways to search for animals as we wanted to be able to see and photograph.
Their respect and care for the preservation of the places visited are also very high.
I recommend this team to anyone who loves and respects nature.
