We did the evening tour going to Lamar Valley for wildlife and our guide was Kirk. Kirk talked non-stop and we learned a bit about the park, but mainly about Kirk and his life. We came to a block in the road for a black...More

Needless to say, when you are doing these tours run by Xanterra, you are something of a captive audience because Xanterra has the old yellow touring cars and limits competition for this sort of activity in the park. We had a mixed experience, especially in...More

Our tour had to go a different direction (snow kept us from getting over the pass to Lamar valley). But the bus driver knew where to go look elsewhere. He was very entertaining and engaging. We found this educational too (thanks to the driver).

You get a very informative history and park facts from this service. It hits the major spots on the circle within the park.

We took this tour the first day and it was worth every dollar. It helped us to plan the other three days. The tour guide and driver was so informative and of course the other guests on the bus were such fine people to speak...More

We took the 5 hour scenic wildlife tour starting at the Old Faithful Inn. Our guide, Betty, was very good at making everyone feel comfortable and she gave photo tips to all who had cameras. We saw many elk and bison as well as springs...More
