Our tour guide, Devon is phenomenal. Devon makes you feel welcome and comfortable. She made sure everyone had their pictures of the animals and each other. We learned a lot about the area. A great experience. Devon was very knowledgeable regarding the area and animals. We enjoyed our tour immensely. As stated in the tour details, this is a open air truck, so expect to be dirty at the end of the night.
We lived the open air wildlife safari! Our guide, Neil, was amazing! He had a great sense of humor and spent a lot of time talking to us and sharing his experience. We appreciated the beverages (cold and hot!) and the snacks. Well worth the early morning, the time and the cost.
Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. We took the dawn trip, and got see many of the wildlife throughout the Tetons. Must do it your in Jackson home area.
Our tour guide (I think it was Jaclyn) was awesome!! We went in the summer, so we were prepared for there to be less animal sightings. She still made it her number one priority and we saw a moose, antelope, bison and a den of fox of her kits! The safari does an excellent job of knowing where to go to see the wild life. Great time.
We had a great time our guide Kevin was really great and helpful . We really enjoyed his knowledge of the area and the wildlife. Highly recommend this tour
So both a bear and a moose on thee tour as well as a couple of mature elk. But seeing Wildlife is always hit and miss. Even if we hadn't seen anything,. We still would have enjoyed the tour because of guide Trevor and all his knowledge and experience of the area.
Clint was a fabulous guide!!!! His wealth of knowledge about the area and wildlife was impressive!!! Thanks to being a teacher previously sure made for a fun filled Safari for US!!!!!!! Thanks Clint!!!!
A great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this tour if your into wildlife.
I would highly recommend the Grand Teton Wildlife Safari. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgable and extremely personable. The scenery was beautiful. Most importantly, we saw many types of animals including bears, elk, antelopes, deer, and moose. Overall, this wildlife safari was a wonderful and unforgettable outdoor experience.
Truly a safari experience! Hold on to your hat and anything lightweight.. feel the wind and swirling dust! Our guide Monica had the exhuberance of a true wildlife expert who has the educational background to correctly answer everyones questions and add to it. She navigates the narrow and at times unpaved rocky, wildly potholed roads with the sturdy axle of her safari truck! We saw pronghorn, bison from afar, moose and baby, elk. She knew where to look for wildlife based on her knowledge of their habits. This was our first time to visit the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park, and we were here for the total Solar Eclipse. BrushBuck Wildlife Tour was the first tour we had scheduled after the eclipse, so it was a good introduction to the park.
Our guide was Evan! He was fabulous. We saw a bear, elk, moose, prohorn antelope, bison and more. He reallly knew ,the area. He was a wealth of information. He was in no hurry in areas where we were watching for wildlife. Our tour was extended, because we kept seeing animals and would stop to watch. Highly recommend this tour.
Loved this tour! We booked the 4-hour sunset tour. Meeting place is at Teton Village. When we told Brushback that we didn't have access to a car, they said they could pick us up in Jackson Hole rather than meeting at Teton Village. Brushback picked us up at our hotel and brought us back to Jackson Hole. Our guide, Nick, went out of his way to find wildlife and was very informative. We did see a bear, a herd of elk, mule deer, beaver, and moose. Snacks, water and binoculars were available on safari. Would not hesitate to book with Brushback when again in Jackson Hole.
Our guide was very well informed. His commentary was interesting and he answered all questions to the satisfaction of the people asking for information. He also volunteered often amusing tales that added to the richness of the tour.
Fortunately, we had a beautiful day and the coffee helped, too!
Neal made the whole trip great. He knew so much about the area and the wildlife. I would highly recommend this trip, but dress warm !!!
This was a highlight of our trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton for our entire family. Our guide, Trevor, taught us a lot about the history, animals, botany, and changing environment of the area and answered all of our questions. We finally saw bear, moose, antelope, etc. that we hadn't seen previously in either park. We highly recommend this tour!
Sammy our tour guide got us within 5 yards of a buffalo----we say mule deer,elk also. She took us to places we never would have found.
Big thumbs up!
Monica our tour guide was very knowlegable about the area and wildlife. She enjoyed answering all our questions and provided an enjoyable excursion. We saw lots of pronghorn, elk, a moose and her calf, and a few lone bison. Got lots of great pics and memories.
We loved the trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and excited about her work she does. We had a wonderful time.
