What is the best way to see Yellowstone National Park?

Frequently asked questions about Tours to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Park:


Will the Teton Pass closure affect my tour?

No, all of our tours will operate as normal! However, for those lodging in Idaho (Victor, Driggs, etc.), the detour to our pickup location in Jackson, WY is an hour and 45 minute drive. So, please plan accordingly!

The good news is that Teton Pass will be open again in a few weeks, as of WYDOT's update on 06/10/2024.

Where is Yellowstone National Park?

Yellowstone is in the northwest corner of the state of Wyoming with its western boundary lying in Idaho and its northern boundary in Montana.

What is the best way to see Yellowstone National Park?

The best way to see Yellowstone National Park is on a Tour with one of our local guides.  You will have an amazing experience in a comfortable vehicle, not having to watch the road or decide where to stop.  This will avoid marriage problems too :)  Our guides do this every day and will take you to the best sights in Yellowstone, search for wildlife so you can take amazing photos, teach you about the Park's history, its geothermal activity, wildlife details and create an experience that you'll remember forever!

Do we need a Guide for Yellowstone?

We highly recommend hiring a Tour Guide for Yellowstone for several reasons.  1. Driving yourself and trying to navigate and decide where to stop in the Park can be quite stressful and often results in some family tension :O.  2. Our experienced guides do this daily and know the best locations and sites to visit.  3. Having a navigator, an educator, a sounding board to do all the work, provide information and the Park's history, features and wildlife AND answer all your questions . . . is priceless!

Which is the Best Tour to see Wildlife?

The Best Tour to see wildlife is our Ultimate Wildlife Safari (Full-day Private Tour) where we will search the prime wildlife habitats in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.  We commonly see bison, bears, elk, moose, eagles, swans, herons and occasionally wolves, foxes and more.  The second best Tour for wildlife would be one of our half or full day Grand Teton Tours.

Do you offer Private Tours of Yellowstone or Grand Teton Park?

Yes, we offer Private Tours of Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton Park for groups of 2 to 20 people in one vehicle, up to 36 in multiple vehicles.  Tours will be tailored to your interests and can be adjusted throughout the Tour.

Do we get to see Old Faithful on the tour?

Absolutely, we visit the Old Faithful area on Yellowstone Lower Loop Tours and watch it erupt!  One of the highlights of the tour!

When is the best time to see Bears?

From our experience, the Best time to see Grizzly Bears is May and early June and then also in October.  The best time for Black Bears is in late August through early October when they are feasting on all the ripe berries!

Do the Park Tours include the Entry Fees?

Yes, our Tours include the Park Entry Fees.  Please let us know if you have any type of National Park Pass and we will deduct up to $20 per Adult (up to 4 people per pass);  $20 per booking which includes a Senior.

What type of vehicle will we be in?

Depending on on the # of people on your Tour that day, you may be in an SUV like a Suburban, one of our Hi-top 8-12 passenger vans or our 20-passenger mini bus.  All vehicles have AC, heat, individual captain chairs and large windows for fantastic viewing.

Are there restrooms on the vehicle?

No, but we make frequent restroom breaks throughout the day and our Guides know where the 4-star bathrooms are.

How many people are on the Tours?

Our public Yellowstone National Park Tours average 8 people with a range from 4-18 people.

Our public Grand Teton Tours average around 6 people with a range of 4-11 people.

What if there is bad weather?

Our Tours operate "rain, snow or shine", so poor weather DOES NOT justify cancellations of trips.  Rain or thunderstorms are typically short and pass through within 30 minutes.  The animals, geysers and waterfalls don't care and cold or inclement weather is usually better for viewing wildlife as lower air temperatures promote wildlife activity.

Should I bring my Handicap Parking Placard?

Yes!  If you normally use a handicap parking permit, please bring it with you.  This will allow us to park closer in order to accommodate you.

What is the minimum age allowed on a Tour?

The minimum age on a Public/Shared tour is 6 yrs old.  This is for the enjoyment and consideration of all guests riding together in the same vehicle.  Private Tours are available for families/groups with kids 5 and under.
