I cannot say enough about this tour!! It definitely exceeded our expectations! We were so impressed with not only Mark’s knowledge of the history of the park, but his expertise on all of the animals that we saw. It was so important to him that we were well taken care of. He made sure that we had plenty of snacks, drinks, and restroom breaks. As we saw beautiful animals along the way, he was sure to get us the best looks through the scope and videoed each encounter. At the end of the tour he sent us video that he had taken for us to have. Thank you Mark for a fabulous day!

Our guide, Patrick, was super friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. He was smart about where to go to see the best animals, and he was nimble about changing course if he heard any other information from his colleagues leading other tours. Thanks to Patrick, we saw grizzly bears, a moose mama and baby, beavers building a dam, pronghorn scaring off aggression from a coyote, and a herd of elk running by us on the road and then crossing in front of us with the big proud buck bringing up the rear making sure the rest got across. Besides the wildlife, we saw the stunning geologic features that make Yellowstone famous.

We had an amazing time with Patrick who was a fun laid back tour guide. He knew all things history, geology, animals and even fun facts about the celebrity life of Yellowstone and the surrounding area. We saw amazing animals, and all of the highlights we wanted to see Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring and the waterfalls at Artist Point! It was all breathtaking! Patrick has a true love of the area and incredible amount of knowledge. I highly recommend this tour!
