I have had a few tours with Yellowstone day tours. Today didn’t disappoint. I had an awesome guide his name was Jeff. He was knowledgeable, attentive and funny. He made the 12ish hour day great. He listened to our wants and needs and accommodated us his best to suit the group as a whole. We seen a few of the major attractions in southern Yellowstone. We seen a ton of wildlife. I would recommend this trip to anyone. I have done it alone and felt very a part of a family.

This was a lot of fun. Enough rapid action to get wet a little. Enough relaxing time to enjoy the scenery. Was great for kids. Guides were a lot of fun. We had Patrick, but they all seemed like fun! We'd do it again for sure!

Highly recommend Yellowstone Day Tours. James was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and informative. We would have missed out on so much if we had just toured on our own. Well worth the money!

My girls and I had a great time! I'd highly suggest this trip. It's fun and easy and not too challenging. The weather was perfect, although the water still a bit cold but we were prepared.

She was great and she knew history of the Yellowstone.
