Wake up to wildlife is a must! We were met promptly at 6:15 at Canyon Lodge and loaded into the car. Our guide, Kurt, explained much of the history of the park while driving from location to location. He carried several large spotting scopes to...More

Trip Advisor doesn't seem to distinguish between the morning wildlife tour and the photo safari. They are two different tours. I am providing a review for the photo safari only. The trip was excellent. My husband and daughter are both avid photographers and saw abundant...More

We didn't see that much wildlife in spite of the guide's best efforts, we saw lots of bison, a pronghorn and an osprey nest but sadly no wolves or bears. But it was still a great tour, the guide told us so much about the...More

I signed up for this trip for my family because I knew our time in Yellowstone was limited and I wanted to see as much as possible. The Yellow Bus Tours are done in a 1936 White Model 706. Yellowstone purchased several including the one...More
