Owner description: Join us during summer months for a guided tour of Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Park. Grand Teton National Park is home to many spectacular wild animals including bison, moose, bears, bald eagles, and more, not to mention amazing landscapes. Yellowstone is an area of unrivaled geothermal wonders and fantastic scenery. We also offer hiking as part of our Yellowstone trips. Fly-fishing on the Snake or riding ATVs in the National Forest are other excellent options. During winter, choose a guided snowmobile tour into the fabulous Teton back country or Yellowstone National Park. Our tours offer the opportunity to enjoy wildlife and scenery or powder and off trail riding. If snow machines are not for you, we also offer snowcoach tours into Yellowstone National Park.

Overall this was an amazing trip. Yes it is a long day, but it was totally worth it. We were picked up at 6:15 AM and were the first people picked up, took about 20-30 min to get everyone else and get to their shop. Breakfast was fine by me: coffee, pastries, and what I thought were really good breakfast burritos. They were quick about getting ready and geared up and off we went. Jason, our guide was awesome! Super knowledgeable, funny, and a great instructor/tour guide all together. The park is amazing and the ride in and out were a lot of fun, definitely an adventure driving 90 miles on a snowmobile! We did the trip to old faithful, where you stop halfway through your trip for lunch. They get sandwiches made on the way up, and they turned out to be really good hearty sandwiches. Jason also had some fresh great chips, brownies, and granola bars for us to snag as snacks on the way back.

Sure it's pricey -- and I pay particular attention to price-value and this was definitely worth the value in my opinion. I love being able to say I went snowmobiling through Yellowstone and took a lot of awesome Go Pro video!

Mikey was the best guide on our snowmobile trip through Yellowstone! Everything went smoothly from the reservation, to the pick up, to the trip itself, and to the return. We would definitely recommend and use Scenic Safaris again!

Always wanted to see YNP in the winter as I had been there many times in none winter months.
Wess was our guide and since it was snowing hard all that day, the roads were very snowy and ruts but we moved right along and made it to Old Faithfull on time for the scheduled geyer to appear but as luck had it, it was going off 20 minutes ahead as we approached. After a hearty lunch and warm-up put on by our guide in Yurts, we headed out to Biscuit basin to look for some wildlife. We found multple bison there so that made the trip worth the long ride. Wess was worried that they might close the road due to all of the snow and we might have to spend the night at Flagg Ranch, the starting point of the snowmobiles. We were lucky there as the road was closing at 6PM and Wess got us back in plenty of time. Wess our guide was very attentive and helpful and I recommend him for a great informative ride.

James was our guide and was an excellent mix of fun and knowledge. He made the trip! The facilities were clean and warm :-), and the gear and sleds were also very clean and well maintained. We were able to order our own lunch and they took care of the rest - food, water, etc. we made enough stops at great sights to get a lot of good photos, but not so many stops that it was tedious. Perfect mix of fun and safety. Highly recommend this operator and our guide!!

Excellent tour with Scenic Safaris on Wednesday March 13, 2014. James R. was an outstanding guide. He provided his knowledge of the areas we passed heading to our start point as well as information during our stops in the Park. I recommend James as a guide. We saw lots of Buffalo, one in particular came very close to us at Old Faithful. Outstanding trip and a great group that kept a good pace which meant longer and more scenic stops.
