We had an amazing time with our guide George! He shared so much information with us about the history and geology of the park. We saw so many amazing things. Also, we saw so much wildlife! He put us on grizzlies, moose, river otters, elk, etc. he brought a ton of optics to help us get a great view from a safe distance. George went above and beyond all expectations we had. He also is a great photographer and got amazing shots of us with the different falls and features of Yellowstone!I highly recommend this tour!

Great explanations of the different stops. A little confusing as to when to turn it on and start listening to it. Once we figured it out and got the first stop and the episode sync, we were good.

Our guide, Natalie, was extremely knowledgeable and understanding of our beginner status. She really made all of us feel confident and comfortable. Great experience.
