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.
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!
This was a great trip. Very well organized and the guide Mike from Brushback Tours was absolutely fantastic!! He is very knowledgeable about the area and animals as well as personal and professional! Would highly recommend this trip. I would also recommend you bring a deck of cards or book and possibly a hair dryer if you are finicky about your hair. In some of the more remote lodges they could come in handy.
the trip was great and so was Mike............ he's a keeper. The only feedback I have which I relayed to Mike , was to consider an different lodging that Pahaska Teepee. Its really run down and un kept. Not a pleasant stay . Thanks
It was a great trip and has to be the best way to see Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We were a group of three, ages 16, 40s, and 70s. The trip met the expectations and abilities for each of us. Our guide was Daniel. He is so well versed in the area, it's history, animals, background, everything, including where to eat. Two of our motels were rather poor, I'd have liked better lodgings with amenities such as a tv, hair dryer, Internet and or phone service. We were all tired out from the trip as it is somewhat strenuous, or at least we made it that way so we could see more. Lovely pictures to remember the trip by. Nice price through Viator.
Great Trip. We are in our sixties and have some back issues so next time we would only take a 2 to 3 day trip. The seats in the van were not good for us. Otherwise the trip was great and so was our guide.
We were with four other couples. All of us felt that the tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Dan Stoudt, was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make everyone happy with the tour. We highly recommend this tour especially if you are into photography.
A great visit to an area we had never visited. Brush Buck, our expedition team, was extremely knowledgeable,.. We saw everything we wanted, and felt very well taken care of... We are recommending to anyone who asks... Even saw wolves..
Our group consisted of 5 couples. The trip was well planned so that we could visit/see multiple areas of the Tetons and Yellowstone. The van was comfortable.
We had a very impressive guide, Daniel S, who knew SO much about the Tetons and Yellowstone. Daniel was friendly, courteous, patient as well as an excellent driver. He had vast knowledge of nature/wildlife specific to the areas and had such vast respect for the land and its animals. He could spot bears and other small animals with naked eye. He provided excellent descriptions of the animals/habitats. He allowed plenty of time to spot the animals to take pictures etc. and observe these animals in their habitats. Daniel demonstrated plenty of concern for the safety of people and animals.
We saw eagles, deer, moose, wolves 13, coyote, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elk, grizzly bears, black bears and 1000s bison!!!
Fantastic, we were on a 4day tour that normally has 9 guests, turned out we were the only 2.
We had a personalized tour with a guide that was both extremely knowledgeable and personable.
Had the pleasure of viewing 13 bear, a wolf feeding on a recent kill, along with thousands of bison, elk and other animals.
The highlight of the trip was a Mama bear with her 3 cubs, so close you could almost reach out and touch them.
The tour went smoothly and the vehicle was comfortable.
Would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see Yellowstone and Grand Teton, mountains and animals.
