After several trips with the company, Natalie and all guides have been exceptional. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was good, good binoculars. I have never been disappointed.

Mark was fantastic! We learned so much in the time we spent with him. I would recommend the expedition and Mark as the guide. He was so friendly and make us feel that we had known him for a long time. We hope to return someday and look forward to seeing him.

Teton Science Schools provided us a very professional Sunrise Expedition. Sarah was a very good guide and also talking with Becca it made it feel like we knew everyone. I love how Sarah gets so excited about the animals that she see's. It' like the first time that she see's them, which gets everyone else all excited. the knowledge that she gave us was like reading national geographic she knows so much.

thanks you Sarah and Becca

Teton Science Schools provided us a very professional Sunrise Expedition and Barker-Ewing afternoon Float Trip. We were very fortunate to have Jared Baecker as our Sunrise Expedition guide, setting aside his regular management responsibilities on a Sat. to be in the field with our group. One of the first things he asked was - "what wildlife did we want to see that we had not yet seen?", and he then set the tour itinerary to go find grizzly bears and moose. We saw both in experiences we will never forget. He provided powerful sighting binoculars, water and delicious muffins. We saw an adult grizzly cross the road in front of our van, and a fully mature bull moose less than 100 yards from us as just the highlights. It was an amazing trip I would highly recommend to anyone, but having Jared as our guide was icing on the cake!

The Float Trip was a scenic, relaxing and informative ride down the Snake River with Jim as our guide and raft operator. Not only a great views of the Tetons, but we saw Osprey, Eagles, Elk and a number of fly fishermen in a fishing competition. They did a great job of preparing us for the trip and keeping us safe. A great experience everyone should take!

Thank you for your review. I personally appreciate the kind words shared with others; especially since I was the leader of this program. It is true, I don't spend as many hours in the field these days. However, it was my privilege to spend an amazing morning with you and the two other couples. We were fortunate to witness many amazing sights. I really appreciated the trust you and the other guests had with me. You believed me when I said lets move our location and wait. We were rewarded when a distant grizzly bear approached our vehicle without any other distraction and crossed just feet away. It was amazing. I really appreciate the opportunity to share my home with others, I am privileged. Thank You - Jared Baecker

We had six more days in Grand Teton and Yellowstone, and we literally saw more in four hours than the rest of the trip. 4 grizzlies, 3 black bears, 2 moose, elk, deer, and of course bison. I can't say enough about Sarah -- obviously she was able find a lot of animals and provide a lot of information, but was also very fun (important since we were quite sleepy at the pick up time), and just seemed like a very cool person. With our small group we were able to spend a lot of time out of the suburban getting a bit closer to some of the animals. Snacks, coffee, cocoa, and cool water bottles were also provided. Overall the highlight of the trip.

P.S. One processing hiccup: We booked this as a package with a Barker-Ewing Float trip, and they didn't seem to have our paperwork, so we got pushed to later in the afternoon for the float trip. Be sure to check with Barker-Ewing explicitly that the combination tour info got through. A bit of an inconvenience, but it worked out fine. Anyways, 5 stars for the tour itself.

P.P.S. Going over the websites again, I realized that the "gratuity not encouraged" line we saw was from a different tour later on the trip we took, but thought was for Wildlife Expeditions. We're so sorry!!!

Thank you for sharing your kind praise for Sarah. Sarah is key member to our team. Her knowledge and passion are hard to beat. We are thrilled to be the highlight of your vacation. More important, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide a fun and meaningful educational experience while relaxing on vacation.

We apologize for the mix up with scheduling your Barker Ewing float trip. No excuses, just an error. We have partnered with Barker Ewing Scenic Floats and Barker-Ewing Whitewater for years. Both companies have been leaders in river travel for decades. We are proud to work with them and apologize for any omission we made.

Thank you again for traveling with Wildlife Expeditions and Sarah. - Jared Baecker
