My wife and I spent 9 days in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. The only tour we booked was the Picture Perfect Photo Safari through Xanterra and it was really good. We are both avid amateur photographers. Rod, our driver and tour guide, is a...More

Great evening tour, I thought it would be fantastic to see the sunset over the geysers. A two hour tour turned into a three and a half hour one because the guide was just too technically scientific and lost us completely. Totally spoiled. It was...More

EXCELLENT!!! We had a wonderful driver/tour guide from Ohio. He was so entertaining and accommodating; making sure each of his guests were comfortable and taken care of. The historic yellow bus was fun and again our driver was very knowledgeable! On top of that we...More

We did the evening tour going to Lamar Valley for wildlife and our guide was Kirk. Kirk talked non-stop and we learned a bit about the park, but mainly about Kirk and his life. We came to a block in the road for a black...More

Needless to say, when you are doing these tours run by Xanterra, you are something of a captive audience because Xanterra has the old yellow touring cars and limits competition for this sort of activity in the park. We had a mixed experience, especially in...More

We booked the Circle of Fire tour on friends' recommendation. They described that it was on this vehicle. But, in the summer I guess they have so many people that they take the big buses instead. So, we were disappointed to not have this old...More

Our tour had to go a different direction (snow kept us from getting over the pass to Lamar valley). But the bus driver knew where to go look elsewhere. He was very entertaining and engaging. We found this educational too (thanks to the driver).

First off, we didn't get on one of the historic yellow buses - it was another regular shuttle and less comfortable. Caroline, our guide was friendly and seemed knowledgeable but she didn't give enough information about the park - she spent a lot of time...More

You get a very informative history and park facts from this service. It hits the major spots on the circle within the park.
