Bus for Group of 30 to Yellowstone day trip?
Save

We are celebrating several friends birthdays with a trip to Jackson Hole in early August. There will be approx 30 adults. We would love to do a day trip bus tour too Yellowstone. Anyone have bus/and or tour group company recommendations that could handle our group size?

Thanks!

Right now for Covid, I believe each tour vehicle is restricted to 10 people, including the driver, for Yellowstone. Some tour companies are only doing private/family tours, not groups. Here are the approved providers. Unfortunately they are not sorted by location for summer, but the Jackson area code is 307.

Contact Brushbuck tours. Highly recommend them.

They can probably do the car in their shuttle vans.

I'm not sure Yellowstone would allow a bus that large in the park this year.

Yellowstone Park is currently in Phase 1.

Approved Tours

Limited commercial tours (transporting 10 people or fewer with

proper social distancing) may commence in Phase 1 after tour

operators have submitted required COVID-19 mitigation plans

to the park and have received approval. Larger commercial

tours will be restricted initially.

I have yet to see anything regarding increased tour passenger numbers for Phase 2 which the park is hoping to go to some time during the summer, but I do recall from last year's reopening plan did not allow the large commercial tours until Phase 3.

If you want to do a day tour from Jackson and Yellowstone Park is still in Phase 1, you will probably need to do multiple tour vans from the same company if they are able to do that.
