Absolutely fantastic! My guide was so knowledgeable and even though we had a lot of low hanging clouds for the most part it was so worth the tour. I learned so much about the wildlife and the area. I can’t say enough good about the trip and my guide. He was friendly and so informative. Best part of my trip! Thank you for a great time to my guide and the interns!

Our guy Kelsey was very friendly and very knowledgeable. She listened to what we wanted to accomplish that day and she checked off all of our boxes. She was patient and answering all my questions and we saw several different animals. She was making sure that we were comfortable asking if we needed a bathroom break and providing drinks and snacks for our tour.

Mark was so insightful and knew so much about the area and the wildlife. We learned so much from him and this was the best part of our vacation! We were able to see so many amazing animals, even though the weather was unfavorable!

Amazing nature! Perfect timing on a sunny day in spring. Still lots of snow which makes the pictures even better. Not so many people in the parc.

Amanda was a great guide. We saw Rams, moose, elk, buffalo, and Grizzly 399 with her 4 cubs.i would definitely recommend this tour.
