        Yellowstone private tour
        ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 star experience! My husband and I immensely enjoyed our private tour of Yellowstone National Park. We were in Montana for my husband’s birthday getaway. This was by far one of the best private tours that we have ever been on. Our guide, Andreas, was amazing and genuinely passionate about all things regarding the Yellowstone ecosystem. He had extensive knowledge of wildlife biology and ecology and history and he conveyed the information very thoroughly. We had high power telescopes and binoculars for viewing the wildlife. And Andreas had real time information via walkie talkie on wildlife sightings which enhanced our adventure. We felt like VIPs. We traveled in a clean and sleek black SUV and had a delicious picnic lunch of gourmet sandwiches - veggie and turkey with havarti. I would highly recommend Yellowstone Adventure Tours! Andreas, thank you for an unforgettable experience! Kim and Suresh

        Amazing day in Yellowstone
        What a memorable day! Andrea took out our family of 5 for the day - he was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a pleasure to be with. He knew the best places to go for beautiful views and to see all of the wild animals - bears, wolves, moose, bison, bald eagle and golden eagle, fox, pronghorn, coyote, woodchuck. His equipment was invaluable to the experience. I’d highly recommend!

        Amazing Tour of Yellowstone Wildlife and Scenery
        We had an awesome day at Yellowstone National Park with our tour guide Andrea. He really knew exactly when and where we needed to be to see wolves, bears, bison, and more. Andrea took us to the best spots where we got to see a numerous animals, the absolute best was a wolf pack, we even could hear them howling to one another as well as a grizzly bear chowing down on a bison. Nature is so incredible, it was just amazing.

        Memorable Adventure
        Andrea is truly a wealth of knowledge and somehow kept everyone engaged for the whole entire day! We have teenagers and an 8 year old which can be tough to keep everyone interested but he did so with ease. He is so passionate about his business; his excitement is contagious. We saw plenty of wildlife, navigated varying weather (snow-sun-sprinkles), took a beautiful hike, saw some of Yellowstone’s famous geographical highlights…this was a memorable trip for the whole family!

        Wolves and Bison and Elk! Plus a Pygmy Owl, a Moose, and an excellent tour guide!
        What a great experience for our family of four! Noah was a wealth of information and good naturedly answered all our questions. Through the provided scope and binoculars we were privileged to watch the Eight Mile Pack get a group of elk on the run! In addition to the wolf pack, we saw bison, proghorn, mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyote, moose, trumpeter swan, and a pygmy owl. We would have seen less than half of these without our wildlife biologist guide. All around a delightful day!

        Best Yellowstone experience!
        I cannot say enough how much my family and I enjoyed having Andrea as our Yellowstone tour guide for our very first trip! He showed us so much that we would not have picked up on without a professional guide. He was professional and very personable. He answered all of our questions and we really enjoyed the day with him! It was worth every penny!

        What a memorable time in Yellowstone!
        Nathan our guide was hands down the best! He was very attentive and knowledgeable about the park. He made my young family feel comfortable and was very patient with our two girls. Our favorite part was our hike through the snowy trails and seeing the wolves prints along the way.

        Book with Yellowstone Adventure Tours Now!
        Without a doubt, Yellowstone Adventure Tours completely exceeded expectations. First time to Yellowstone/Bozeman. Knew we wanted to go to the park, but had tons of questions and concerns doing it ourselves. Andrea was our guide and I honestly don't think there could have been anyone better. Extremely knowledgeable about the park and it's wildlife, Andrea was able to take us to key spots to see everything on our list (Wolf, elk, bison, red fox, coyote, moose, big horn sheep, and even a couple of pine martins - we saw them all!). The day was amazing, one we will never forget. It snowed the whole day we were in the park and that only made it better. If you are wondering if its worth booking a guide, its 100% worth booking with Andrea and Yellowstone Adventure Tours. He's very welcoming and accommodating. His passion for nature and knowledge is strong. We've already decided to come back during the summer/fall and the only call we'll make is to Yellowstone Adventure Tours. Thank you Andrea! Such an amazing experience.

        Amazing wildlife safari!
        We had an amazing private tour of Yellowstone with one of the company’s owners, Andrea. He clearly loves what he does and has dedicated his life to purusing his curiosity about nature. We were the beneficiaries. My family of five, three kids under 13, told Andrea as we started out before the sunrise in Bozeman, what we hoped to see in Yellowstone. Wolves, Bison, Moose, Mountain Goats, Elk, Mountain Lion, Eagle, Fox…before lunch we’d seen most of these, with the Moose being elusive and testing Andrea’s tracking chops. But he spotted it, bedded down in the snow. What appeared like a rock to anyone else, at 25 mph and 100 meters from the road, was exactly what we’d been searching for. Andrea also did a great job using his network of trackers to help us see Wolves and a Mountain Lion. We noticed that he was well respected among his peers, none of whom hesitated to point us in the right direction. Lastly was our off-road experience. Andrea took us to a beautiful canyon, a couple of kilometers walk from the road. He identified various tracks and scat as we made first tracks into the canyon and an enormous natural cave hidden inside of it. The whole scene was magical, a blue-bird sky with the snow reflecting the light back. At the end of our week in Montana, including 5 days of skiing at Big Sky, when we asked our kids (ages 7 to 13) what their favorite part was? Unanimous opinion, our wildlife safari with Andrea.

        A Very Memorable Tour
        We recently chose Yellowstone Adventure Tours to guide us through a photography tour of the national park. Andrea was our guide for the day and we couldn't have been happier. He was prompt, courteous, extremely knowledgeable, very accomodating, personable, pleasant, friendly and knows his information about the history of the park and the animals there. Andrea inquired about our primary sightings for the tour and ensured that he did everything he could to make them happen. He is well connected with other guides/biologists in the area and appeared to have a great working relationship with them. We were able to see almost all of the animals we were wanting to see (animals will be animals and not always out) and a few more we weren't expecting. Here is one of our pictures of the Pine Martens we were able to see. We are told are rare and were sort of difficult to get a good picture of since they are so nimble and unpredictable. Thanks Andrea for a very memorable tour!

        Amazing wolves and guide
        Amazing amazing tour! We got very lucky and within the first few minutes of entering the park we got to see the largest wolf pack in the park. It was spectacular. We spent the rest of the day looking for moose and carcasses but were not as lucky. Andrea, our tour guide, was right on time and a great guide. Super friendly and professional. He was clearly very knowledgeable about animals and especially the animals of Yellowstone. You can tell he is very passionate and dedicated to animal watching so he knew exactly where to look. He tried his best to help us find more animals to look at by finding tracks and knowing their patterns. When we did find the wolves he was very quick to drive to the right locations and set up scopes for us to see. Highly recommend this tour! Takes a bit of luck but that’s nature for you.

        Epic wildlife for days!!!
        WORTH EVERY PENNY! My homies & I do an annual boys snowboarding trip to a new destination. This year big sky was on the trip & I knew Yellowstone wasn’t too far away. I’m a hobbyist photographer and by the grace of the instagram algorithm received this amazing video of a bison in YNP that was posted by Yellowstone Adventure Tours. I sent the videos to the boys & some were stoked while others thought it was lame I was trying to take away from the slopes. We were all more than surprised at the knowledge Andrea brought to the park and the epic hot spots he took us to. We saw just about every winter animal within minutes of entering the park. Wolves, deer, elk, coyotes, big horn sheep, some other gazelle looking thing (can’t remember the name) mountain lion foot prints, absolutely insane. The most epic part of our journey though was witnessing a pack of wolves chow down on an elk. We witnessed on the wolves carrying the elks head up onto a hill. EPIC is an understatement. Oh yea also you’re in YNP one of the most beautiful parks on the planet. Needless to say, this tour is a. NO BRAINER & I strongly recommend the good folks over there. Andrea, thank you again for such an incredible experience. I will be back for bear season!

        A MUST! First visit to Yellowstone!
        Our first time to Yellowstone National Park, with our toddler in tow!!! Montana and Wyoming were incredible. Absolutely beautiful sites and the wildlife was straight out of National Geographic! Our your guide, Andrea, truly made our trip such a memorable experience. He honestly had an answer to all of our questions and his vast knowledge in Biology was admirable. His love and passion for nature and wildlife was infectious! Anyone can drive through a national park, but having a knowledgeable guide will truly make a difference. He spotted out a pack of wolves (had we gone solo, we definitely wouldn’t have seen them ourselves) He also pointed out the first otter of their season, we got a good glance at it! It was awesome seeing the community of photographers and wildlife enthusiasts co-mingle and check in with each other about animal sighting up the road, etc. (also via Walkie talkie) He shared how he left his hometown of Luxembourg to study in Montana, as it’s ranked the best school for his field. So immediately, that dedication was inspiring. He brought along a wide array of gadgets, like scopes, binoculars and more. He shared some high end quality photos at the end, which I cannot wait to print them. He was very easy going and easy to strike up conversation with, which is needed for how many hours we spent to together. One of my personal favorite parts was that, it was nice for my husband and I to be able to enjoy time away from the wheel and have someone else handle the icy roads and curvy turns, he was punctual right at six in the morning, and just felt like a friend we were adventuring with for the day. NOT like some of those tour guides you feel are lecturing you and it’s total boredom, lol. If you have small children, a private tour like ours is highly needed. Our little girl got some car sickness at one point and it wasn’t pretty. Andrea was more than patient and understanding since he himself has a little one. The bison, elk and the eagles were all around. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Also, a special thanks to the owner, Derek, for returning our call on New Year’s Eve and talking to me for 30 minutes about what we could expect. We ultimately went with his company because you could tell the customer service was solid. We would’ve not changed anything about our day!

        Yellowstone Wolf Packs
        Andrea was a great guide and we saw and photographed 2 wolf packs (the “shrimp” and “rescue” packs) as well as 15 mountain goats in a group, a herd of bighorn sheep, several lone coyotes, and of course many bison and elk. We also did a very nice hike. Andrea is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and is very passionate about Yellowstone Park. Without Andrea we would never have found the wolves, goats and sheep. You really need a guide with the proper equipment, connections and knowledge. He is a very professional guide and a nice guy.

        We've been on a number of guided safaris and this was right up there with the best that we've ever had. Andrea was an excellent guide. with great local knowledge and fantastic enthusiasm. His ability to relate on all levels to the guests was brilliant. The catering was generous and healthy. The experience exceeded our expectations and we would definitely do this again .

      Nathan made our first experience at Yellowstone one for the memory books. He was on time, he knew all the answers to our questions and personalized the experience to our family. He knew where to keep us away from the crowds and out of the traffic without missing anything. Transportation was clean, roomy. He provided a delicious lunch and knew where the cleanest bathrooms were in the park. We highly recommend Yellowstone Adventures and Nathan as your guide.

      Our guide Andrea was an expert naturalist—(“he knows the park really well” per my 11year old). Highly recommend this operation for the Professional, expert naturalist guide, and the company/guide’s Communication which was great. Andrea was excellent at tailoring the experience, start time and day to our kids (who were equally interested in taking breaks to roll around in the snow and sight animals).

      We’ll stocked with snacks, lunch etc—key for traveling with school aged kids!

      Got very rare sighting of mountain lion (albeit very far off), and black bear mamma and cubs just beginning to emerge from their den. Amazing!

      Awesome trip! Andrea was awesome and flexible, we saw wolves, bison, mountain goats, and beaver. The spotting scopes and Andrea’s expertise guaranteed we saw way more than we would have on our end and his knowledge really shone through re: the overall ecosystem, wolves, and Montana/Yellowstone.

      The experience with Yellowstone Adventure Tours was beyond amazing! Andrea, our guide, was passionate and knowledgeable - a true gem of a human. He shared the best of Yellowstone in all its winter wonderland glory - bison, moose, coyote, wolves, eagles and so much more! We were fortunate to be one of the first people outside of scientists to see a new wolf pack! Every detail of the tour was thoughtfully arranged and executed. Worth every penny!
