We experienced a half day tour of Grand Teton National Park with Jim. He is extremely knowledgeable and about the areas geology, flora and fauna and generous in sharing it. We saw bears, elk, deer, swans, marmot, pronghorn, grouse as well as a ton of chipmunks and Jim provided commentary on everything. Our trip was in the morning. While an early wake-up, we highly recommend that time of day. The animals are out and the crowds have not arrived yet. Jim provided coffee and breakfast in a clean comfortable van. Be sure to bring a camera!! We plan to head to Yellowstone with Jim on the next trip.

We did the one day tour of Yellowstone. Jimmy is an excellent guide and his background in geology really made a difference. Very knowledgeable on the best sights to see and the best places to observe them from. Very comfortable vehicle. Delicious breakfast and picnic lunch was an added bonus. Strongly recommend it. Well worth the money. Wish we had done the Teton tour with him as well.

Jim was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout our two day adventure. We saw 5 bear, several mule deer, hundreds of bison and a bald eagle. Jim made us a beautiful picnic lunch. It was everything you could ask for. We also learned so much great information as well. Highly recommend this to anyone.

We did this our last day and what a way to end our wonderful trip. Our guide was GREAT. To ride around with a local sipping the coffee he provided in Yeti cups learning about our surroundings was a real treat. And in addition to lots of sightings of local wildlife we saw a black bear who was 10 feet from the van. My photos were fantastic. Would highly recommend this outfit. We had adults and teens. Both equally entertained.

We had a half day tour at the Tetons and a full day at Yellowstone. Jimmy was an excellent guide. He enhanced the trip so much with all the background, knowledge and passion he has about both areas.
My one suggestion would be to do the full two days with jimmy in the Yellowstone park. We did the second day on our own and missed all his expertise.
We found ourselves quoting him all the next day. With our flora and fauna knowledge we accumulated!!

He was diligent in finding wildlife for us each day. We saw bald eagles, pronghorn, elk, buffalo, brown bear... and the coveted grizzly!! What an exciting way to end the day.

We can’t recommend him enough for his kind, easy demeanor to his vast knowledge to his passion for the area. Do yourself a favor and book him for both parks to the fullest. When we come back, we will use him again!!

Thank you for your kind response. Yes, the Grizzly Bear sighting and photographic opportunity was heart pounding. I have made new friends for certain. Jim.
