Neil Moore with his vast knowledge, enthusiasm, ability to find wildlife and attention to the people in his tour made the visit more than we expected. Thanks Neil
It was a great tour and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoor scenery and wildlife. We had a very knowledgeable guide in Mike, who found all the wildlife he had promised everything but bear with the most gorgeous scenery ever. Considering the amount of wildlife in the park, I think that's a good record. We were really up close and personal with the bison who thought the road was theirs and got some really good pictures. One of the park rangers finally had to shoo him off the road. We enjoyed all the thermal features, including Old Faithful. We would like to come back!
Mike was an excellent guide, gave a lot information about the park, animals and history of what we looking at.
This tour is the only way to see Yellowstone.
We loved our wildlife excursion. We had Kyle as our guide. He was very informative, fun to be with, always trying to deliver to his guests. He didn't give up when looking for the wildlife. He was always prompt and made sure of our comfort, and any needs we may have had. Top notch guy. We had 7 other people with us and we became friends form our journey sort of like family. The experience was awesome. Not only was the scenery beautiful and awe inspiring but we saw a lot of wildlife, such as moose, wolves, fox, elk, eagles, pronghorn, mountain sheep, a bear and of course bison all over the place.
My wife and I would highly recommend this adventure. Although the drive was long at times, around 12 hour days, we were still enthusiastic about locating the different wildlife. The meals included mainly breakfast was great and the stops inquisitive. Our accommodations were suitable and at times very nice.There was so much more to see other than wildlife. Old Faithful was dramatic, the hot springs and mud pots. So much learned.
We recommend this 4 day excursion. We were very satisfied and the price was well worth the trip.

Only way to see the park and all its attractions i.e. features, wildlife and historic information. Mike, our guide was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable. He was accommodating to all the guests whose ages ranged from 8-73 yrs old. I brought along my 30 yr. old daughter.. one of our favorite trips!
This was the most amazing trip we have taken. Our Guide Kyle was terrific, knowledgeable, in tune with the environment , wildlfie, and courteous, respectful. My wife and I would highly recommend Brushbuck and Kyle for this excursion. Saw all wildlife except grizazly but not for trying. Saw wolf, moose, big horn ram, mountain goats, elk, mule deer, pronged horn antelope, and bison. Osprey nest and mom feeding young. The majesty of the Tetons and Yellowstone is second to none. I would suggest anyone young or old do this to complete the most amazing bucket list accompllishment.
Best tour ever. If you love watching wildlife this is for you. The guide Neil was great.
Really great tour.
Awesome tour, an unforgettable experience, highly recommend! Everything is really well organised, our tour guide was excellent and we saw so much wildlife. Definitely a must do while in Jackson!
