Welcome aboard your Yellowstone Tour! Along the way, your guide will help you discover the history, geology, flora and fauna that makes this area unique. This isn’t some tour director repeating stories from a book, as your guide has lived and breathed just about every aspect of this country. His personal guarantee is that you will walk away at the end knowing this was your best tour experience ever!

Each day will be filled with more stories and information about those who discovered, settled, and currently live in the region. You’ll likely see more wildlife thought possible and learn about more plants than you could imagine. Everything links together in a web of amazing complexity, but on this tour, your appreciation of nature, creation, and the beauty of the American West will be enhanced.  Guided Discovery should be anticipated, so if asked to touch, smell, look, without prior explanation – doing so is for your enhanced experience.

Our tour travels not just through Yellowstone, but throughout the intermountain region and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem – unlike all other tours, you will experience so much more!
