Really cannot recommend higher, and if you go try to get on Travis' tour who compliments information about wildlife with information about all the other aspects of Yellowstone. Requires little to no major physical activity, and you really get a sense of the size and...More

We saw things we would never have seen otherwise! Our wonderful tour guide took our small group to see an active wolf den with pups. What an experience. We also saw beaver, a red tailed hawk nest complete with babies, a bald eagle, a mountain...More

My 15 year old's #1 animal he wanted to see in Yellowstone was the wolf, so we booked this tour thinking that it would be our best shot since the guides know where to look. We went to the site where a wolf den used...More

First, our guide was knowledgeable and a real sweetie. I enjoyed his company. But, for anyone with a car and some binoculars, what we did would be better on your own. Just drive the main roads out to Lamar Valley and stop where you see...More
