About
Join us during summer months for a guided tour of Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Park. Grand Teton National Park is home to many spectacular wild animals including bison, moose, bears, bald eagles, and more, not to mention amazing landscapes. Yellowstone is an area of unrivaled geothermal wonders and fantastic scenery. We also offer hiking as part of our Yellowstone trips. Fly-fishing on the Snake or riding ATVs in the National Forest are other excellent options. During winter, choose a guided snowmobile tour into the fabulous Teton back country or Yellowstone National Park. Our tours offer the opportunity to enjoy wildlife and scenery or powder and off trail riding. If snow machines are not for you, we also offer snowcoach tours into Yellowstone National Park.

My husband and I did the Private Lower Loop Yellowstone Tour. Our guide Cal picked us up at our hotel promptly at 6 am. He was very friendly, energetic and ready to go. He had breakfast nibbles, lunch and water so no need for us to worry about packing anything.
Our tour began with a stop to listen to the Elk "bugling" since it was elk rut. It was a cool serene morning and to hear the elk as the sun was coming up was just an surreal experience. Cal gave us the option to stay put a while and listen as he said this spot usually has some elk action.

We visited Old Faithful, some other parts of the geyser basin, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, several different falls, the Prismatic geyser and so many other jaw dropping scenic spots.

Cal is a wealth of knowledge!!! So incredibly informative of the geography, history and ecosystems of the area. It was fascinating to have him guide us through Yellowstone.

We never felt rushed, Cal always provided the option of stopping and doing more exploring or just carrying on with our ride. He was very considerate of our time and always asked if there was anything we needed (restroom breaks, food etc).

It was well worth the money to have the private tour as we felt like we saw everything we wanted and even more.

Highly recommend Scenic Safaris and hopefully you will be fortunate enough to have Cal as your guide.

We booked a private Yellowstone snowmobile tour- old faithful from 6am -6pm and it was he highlight of our trip! Our tour guide Brammer “aka Justin” was absolutely amazing! From the time he picked us up from our hotel at 6am, till the time he dropped us back off at 6pm he was joy to be around. He made the process of getting our snowmobile suits, the ride to Yellowstone, and the whole snowmobiling experience absolutely amazing. Snowmobiling through Yellowstone was a dream come true and it felt like you had the whole park to yourself. He knew all the cool spots, including a slide down the waterfall. Do not hesitate to book this tour!

Our group of 4 had a wonderful time, Rhys, our guide was great too! We had a blast on the half day trip, just the amount of time in the cold temps. It even snowed while we were riding, which only added to the journey. The have new snowmobiles, all in perfect condition, and the handwarmers kept us from being too cold. We visited in February, temps were cold, but honestly, even without their snowsuits, were plenty warm. Would highly recommend Scenic Safaris and plan to use them again next trip into Yellowstone.

We travelled all the way from Australia to visit Yellowstone. In advance, we booked a snowcoach shuttle from Flagg to Old Faithful Snow Lodge for February with Scenic Safaris. Scenic Safaris mistakenly booked us for our Feb dates in March, despite us communicating via email and phone that we wanted to book in for Feb. We only discovered this after arriving in Flagg, and Scenic Safaris accused us of making the error, and the Branch Manager refused to co-operate with us to find a compromise that would work. Due to this, we were unable to visit Yellowstone, and have wasted thousands of dollars in flights, accommodation, taxis and other travel costs.

To date, we have had no resolution from Scenic Safaris, and no offer of alternative services, refunds or anything to make up from this ludicrously terrible experience.

DO NOT BOOK. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

We had a group of 10 take the Half-day UTV tour with a guide out of Jackson in early July.

I am adding this review so that you won't be surprised like we were about one key aspect. The good news is that the reservations team was very helpful and the UTVs were brand new.

We spent nearly half of the 4 hour tour on paved roads. Let me explain...

We left the Scenic Safaris location in Jackson for a 30 minute drive on city roads to reach the park entrance. Then another 20 minutes on paved park roads with other cars/trucks. Needless to say our group was getting bored by the time we made it to the trails. Once on the trails, and not dealing with other cars/trucks, the adventure was fun as we climbed through the mountains to reach a beautiful view. The bummer was that we had to return the same way, no new scenery and another 50 minutes or so of paved roads to get back to the store.

I reached out to the company after to find out if they had another half day tour that was mostly on trails and I didn't hear back from them. For over $100 per person, our group of 10 was disappointed with only about an hour of new sights on the trails.

The beauty and magic of Yellowstone National Park cannot adequately be conveyed by words or an online review. Geysers, exotic wildlife, snow covered mountains, steam pits of varying colors, and breathtaking views are just the few of the things that we experienced on our 3 day snowmobile trip through Yellowstone. Our trip with Rhys ( pronounced Reese ) of Scenic Safaris began in Wyoming with a short safety demonstration on our first day. From there, he guided us through sites and places that couldn’t be accessed in a tour van. Bison, Coyotes, Elk, Bald Eagles, and even Wolves were just a few of the alluring animals that we saw as we crossed the Continental Divide and made our way deep into Montana. The majestic mountains, the frozen lakes, and numerous waterfalls and cascades were only outmatched by the passion and knowledge of our guide. Rhys was eager to get started each day because he had so many exciting things to show us. We covered a total of 285 miles over the three days, took in excess of 500 pictures, and were the envy of our friends at home as we posted pictures of our adventure. We began each morning with a hearty breakfast, stopped every day for an excellent lunch, then finished off every evening with a first class meal at posh restaurants. The hotel accommodations each night were first class, and the snowmobiles were in excellent condition and they were so exciting to drive. We cannot say enough good things about this once in a lifetime trip.

This was one of the many firsts my girls experienced on our JH trip and absolutely created some great memories for us. I’d love to give them rave reviews because our guide, Chaney, had a great attitude and did her best to show us a good time. But, she did share that their usual spot for rides was washed out due to the couple days of rain the area had received, so, we needed to venture pretty far away in order to get out among the foothills and get muddy. Once we were there, it was tons of fun and we got good and muddy, but we probably spent half our time driving pretty fast around major roads, which was disappointing. I realize that our guide was making the most of the situation, but overall, the trip was too much time on roads and not enough on dirt trails and getting to be in the backcountry. I’d still recommend them, but only if able to spend more time off road. Note: if it is going to be muddy, be sure to take them up on the rain gear they offer. Being covered up in plastic was a major bonus when the mud started to fly!

Just spent the day with guide Jeff, and six other riders. Although the weather was flurries and overcast, a great long day. Scenic Safaris does a great job. Pick up at my door, nice van ride up to Flagg Ranch. Good buffet breakfast, good outfits (boots, suit, helmets), newer snowmobiles, stops for photos and warming up, lunch, then riding back. Noteworthy tips, you can't wear too many layers under the suit, I had a full ski outfit on. I would recommend wearing your own zero degree hunting boots, better than the rubber ones they provide. Special treat are the heated handles, the driver does not need hand warmers. The passenger needs more warm clothing than the driver. This is a bucket list trip, Yellowstone in the winter!!!

We had two side-by-side 2-seaters, one for my wife and me, and one for our two adult kids. We all had a blast. It was pretty dusty getting into the back country of the Elk National Refuge, so wear a baklava if you have one. And, wear old clothes or rain jacket and pants, as we got really muddy and dirty (but it's fun). The scenery along the trails is really pretty, especially up on the bluffs where you have picturesque views. But, riding in the woods is fun too. Be careful of the deep snow (even in June), as we got stuck, but managed to work our way out. All in all its' a very fun experience and good value for the money, but after 4 hours it does beat you up a bit (rough ride along the trails, over rocks and streams, but again, still very fun).

We started with a side-by-side private tour and had Irwin as our guide. He went above and beyond our expectations and took us to amazing places as well as getting us in positions for great wildlife photos. Irwin was down to earth and relatable so by the end of the tour we decided to book a private tour with him for the Yellowstone Lower Loop. Irwin again delivered an experience much better than we could have ever hoped for. We have him to thank for a once in a lifetime trip and experience that we’ll never forget.
