Owner description: Jackson Hole EcoTour Adventures offers a variety of wildlife viewing, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing in the Jackson Hole, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone Ecosystems. EcoTour Adventures was created in 2008 with the idea of helping people connect with the natural world through wildlife observation, natural history interpretation and backcountry exploration. We believe that when one is more familiar with the intricate workings of the ecosystem, he or she has a deeper appreciation and connection with their environment.

We took our tour with Karen. She very timely picked us up at our hotel first thing in the morning. We picked up our van mates and were on our way to a day full of wild creatures, magical views of magnificent mountains and meadows, as well as historical sites very well maintained and photographed by thousands. Karen guided us to areas that were loaded, and I mean loaded, with wild animals you very rarely see outside of the Tetons, much less Wyoming. We were treated to not one, not two, but four black bears eating berries very close to the roadside. We stopped at a sighting of a single moose. Karen pulled out her massive spotting scope so that we could get a good look at the moose drifting farther back into the thicket. Little did we know that we would quite literally run into a bull moose corralling his girlfriend only feet from our van. We were so close that we had to return to the van for safety. Luckily, our van had roof covers that popped open. Not only did we get a higher birds eye view, but we were safe from the possibility of trampling by these massive animals. Was this enough? No! We were treated to bull elk bugling and chasing other bulls away from the mares, bison grazing near the roadside. Our trip to Mormon Row was postcard perfect with those amazing mountains in the background. Somewhere along the way we had time to stop and eat lunch which was included in our tour. The food was hot, delicious, and portions were huge. Our group of 6 adults and our son, making 7, had time to chit chat and get to know each other in a friendly way. All along the way Karen was attentive to our comfort. She offered us snacks and drinks at each stop. She made an effort to provide us with locations that had flushing toilets (now that's important!), and had binoculars available for all of us. But we rarely needed them. What we saw was much too close for those binoculars! Karen was informative about the location, history, and wildlife of the area. I highly recommend this tour for families that don't want to be looking at maps and descriptions of trails instead of actually seeing what you came there to see. Take this tour. You won't regret it.

On September 15th my daughters and I had the pleasure of an all day Yellowstone tour with Taylor. Our expectations were more than met. From Taylor's exceptional knowledge of the park to the untouched natural beauty of Yellowstone, we highly recommend Eco Tour Adventures. Appreciated as well, Taylor's patience with our endless questions, the early morning snacks (try the hot cocoa) and the sudden appearance of an umbrella when it rained. Our thanks to all at Eco Tours.

We just returned from a trip to Wyoming. We booked the Eco Tour because we knew we would be able to see areas off the beaten path. I have been to many national parks and have never seen a bear "close up" but this time was the charm. Our guide took us down a dirt road and there on a hill right next to our car, was a bear filling his belly with berries. She told us to try the same road at sunrise and we saw two bears and moose! She was very knowledgeable about the area and was obviously happy to be living there. The Eco Tours live up to the name and are very environmentally aware, from their vehicle fuel to the snacks made by local merchants. Go for a ride, you will be very glad you did!

Took two tours - the Yellowstone full day and Teton full day. Both guides were great - super friendly and accommodating. Their knowledge and experience was endless - they each had extensive backgrounds in nature, forestry, geology and the natural sciences. They also knew so much about the history of the parks. These tours are a great choice if you have limited time in the parks as the guides know the best places to go (many are off the beaten path and unexpected...with fewer other tourists). Would strongly recommend this company and their guides to make your visit a great one.

Thank you Rainer49 for posting a review on trip advisor. I am glad you enjoyed both your tours with us. All of our guides have science backgrounds and have been in the area for a while and are very knowledgeable about the history and geology of The Greater Yellowstone. Our guides are very familiar with wildlife movement patterns and take you straight to the wildlife hot spots off the beaten path. Thanks you so much for touring with us and next time you are out this way please look us up!

Cheers,
Eco Tour Adventures
