It was great to get away from the crowds and hike across the Lamar Valley. Most of the time we were following game tracks as Josh led us past bison herds and along the River for lunch. It was a fun day. There were only four of us on the hike, apart from Josh, and all in our 60's (or so I gathered) and the level of difficulty was appropriate for us. In addition to bison we saw pronghorns, sand hill cranes, mergansers, a bald eagle, a hawk, and wolves (in the distance). All of the gear recommended on the website was appropriate for the hike, but one thing Josh mentioned was not on their list - long pants. Since much of the time was spent walking through low scrub on narrow paths it was important to wear long pants to protect us from being scratched by the low branches. I had long pants and was glad of it. As far as Covid is concerned, Josh was careful to maintain separation distance during the hike and wear a mask when speaking to the group. Since we each had our own gear we could personally confirm that it was sanitized.

We so thoroughly enjoyed the hike through the Lamar Valley with Josh and Emily Jo. They led us along animal trails - vs using the standard human trails - a real delight that we could not have accomplished on our own. We saw several different wolf groups with a close but plenty far enough away encounter while they were calling to each - what a memory. Also saw pronghorn, the buffalo herds, plus saw an up-close lone buffalo who was resting on the trail. Their narrative on the trees, geology, history and animal life filled the entire hike with discovery in an easily accessible way. What a beautiful experience in every way. Book this hike with Josh and Emily Jo!

Josh was a great guide and very knowledgeable. We saw a pack of wolves from quite far away. But then he took us to a closer location where we could see them better with binoculars. He also was able to spot a big grizzly with 2 cubs with his naked eye. He was great at helping us find where he was seeing all the animals. On the hike we also saw 2 bald eagles a ton of bison and a pronghorn. On the walk back to the parking lot one lone wolf was very close to us and Josh pointed him out to us, so we could all see him without the help of binoculars. Josh made sure that we were never too close to be put in danger and we were just observing them from a safe distance. A great way to get some exercise and see some amazing animals in the wild. Would highly recommend.

Josh was an outstanding guide. The hike was fantastic with lots of wildlife including Wolves, Pronghong, Bison, and more. The scenery was unbelievable. Can't recommend the Lamar Valley Hike enough if you enjoy hiking outdoors. Covid-19 prevention was strickly enforced with masks when needed and proper social distancing.

The Lamar Safari Hike was one of the highlights of our visit to Yellowstone. It was an incredible opportunity to get off the beaten path and get an intimate sense of the area's eco system. Josh was a super guide: very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the Park and surrounding region and very personable. I also appreciated his laser sharp focus on safety. I highly recommend this trip for those that want to experience the Park in its natural setting.
