The tour was excellent! From pick up to drop off our guide (Nate) was incredible. Nate was extremely knowledge about everything Yellowstone and wildlife related. I don’t think there was a question our group asked him that he did not know. He was also great at getting us to see as much wildlife as possible in the park. I would recommend the tour and Nate to anyone looking to explore the park and get the most out of the amazing sights and animals of Yellowstone.

Eddie was extremely knowledgeable and took us to all the great sites in the park. He was an excellent guide. We also had the good fortune to be joined by a fun group of people. My wife and I greatly enjoyed the experience and do highly recommend the tour. Thanks, Eddie!
