  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was the most amazing tour! Our tour guide Rowan has a wealth of experience, information, insight, and first hand knowledge of the parks and shared information and details that we would never have known. He was able to guide us to areas and beautiful spots that we could of never found on our own. We saw an abundance of wildlife and the natural beauty of Yellowstone and the Tetons. All details expertly handled, this is the tour you want! Thank you Rowan!

    Our tour guide Kelsey was not only very knowledgeable, but her enthusiasm and passion was contagious and she genuinely cared about our experience.

    Yellowstone is one of the places that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Pictures do not do it justice. We did a 2 day tour with Hannah. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and patient with us. She had lots great facts about the park and the history. She picked our group of 5 up each morning at 5 am (sun started coming up at 4:30). Day 1 we saw 16 bears, tons of bison and elk, and several waterfalls. Not too much walking for our group of 58 - 72 year olds. We never felt rushed at any stop. Day 2 brought geothermal (mud pots, grand prismatic, geysers, etc.). We watched 5 geysers erupt, which was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour service for your first visit to the park. Hoping to return to see the wolves.

    Flew from Boston to Seattle to Anchorage. Tour began there. Husband, 12 year old grandson and I. 2 vans. Man and woman drivers. 10 parents, 7 children. One other grandmother like me with her granddaughter. Saw Denali from the ground, wild bears, other wild animals. Great scenery of mountains. Good food. Good accomodations. Nice people. Was my 50th state to visit.

    Yellowstone Dreamin tours:
    5/5- all starts with coordinating upfront with Debbie (owner) and her exceptional customer service skills- she definitely wants you to experience what you want- we were on a 1 day park visit and her suggestions fit our needs perfectly. Now, on the actual tour (10hrs.), our guide Adam, was another great fit for my wife and I. Perfect amount of information for us, pointing out many, many items of interest that we would normally just drive right by. Took us to all the “must see” spots, and walked with us to the best vantage points. Gave us site specific information, viewed, photo’s and on to the next spot. The full day tour was done in a perfect sequence whereas it never felt pushed. Highly recommend this group for a great individual tour of the park. Great job Yellowstone Dreamin!

    Our family had a blast with Nolan. We saw grizzly bears (including a mom with 3 cubs), a black bear, elk, coyotes and lots of bison including a mom with a newborn calf. There was even a wolf sighting! Worth every penny! Would highly recommend.

    Just got back from Yellowstone National Park. We had a wonderful guide, Mike from Montana Yellowstone Tours who had lots of interesting facts and showed us the beautiful sites of Yellowstone. The kids loved his funny humor and our hikes were the best. Even the lunch and snacks he provided were over the top. We will always remember all the wildlife we saw. Mike gave us a trip we will always remember. Tina

    We booked 3 private tours (Wilderness, Upper and Lower Loops) and they were all amazing! Debbie was wonderful to work with booking the tours. Ron, our guide, was fabulous! He was friendly, courteous, considerate and so knowledgeable. He gave us so much information and told great stories. We saw so much more than we ever could have seen on our own. Lunches were delicious, with more than enough food. Plus, not having to drive ourselves was such a pleasure. Thanks so much to Dreamin’ Adventures for making our stay in Yellowstone so special.

    Was awesome! Can’t recommend enough! Both tour guides were professional and thorough. Hit all the major sites on the first day and saw a ton of wildlife the second day. 8 grizzlies, grey wolf, fox, osprey, coyote, great horned owl. Bison, elk moose, mule deer, pronghorn sheep, mountain goat. If you want to see wildlife this is the way to go. Can’t wait to set up my next trip with them hopefully a fishing trip.

    Our guide was amazing! We started at 630am and were gone all day! We learned so much! Lunch was provided, very fresh! We would have never covered all the places we saw with guide. Got to see tons of animals including a bear that walked in front of car. We would definitely book again!

    This was our first time at Yellowstone. I would not change a thing as to who we used for the Tour; Wildscape Adventures. Chris Georgia is the BEST! He is knowledgeable with everything and anything, from where to get a good cup of coffee to where we would see wildlife! He also respects the rules of the park and the safety of us and the animals! A 10 Star rating!! We are already booked to work with him again in the Fall.. THANK YOU, Chris!!!

    We went on a private tour today in Yellowstone with a guide by the name of Mike Lagodny, Owner/Operator of Montana Yellowstone Tours.

    Mike was spectacular.

    We started off with our first stop after less than 10 minutes in a very nice and immaculate Suburban, where Mike showed us a momma owl and her baby.

    His equipment is such that one can see as if the wildlife are five to ten feet away. I have poor eyesight, but I was able to see everything today with unbelievable clarity -- thanks to Mike’s equipment.

    Within 15 minutes of being inside the park, we next saw an adult grizzly bear up close from the vehicle as we parked on the side of the road (up close, but actually 100 feet away).

    And it was not 5-10 minutes later that we saw 6-8 adult bison and 5-7 baby bison.

    We stayed and watched these for over 30 minutes as Mike felt like they would come closer to us. He was spot on as they got within 50 feet of our Suburban.

    Mike had hot chocolate, coffee, pastries, banana nut bread -- he was the host of all hosts.

    His uncanny ability to provide exactly what we wanted was second to none.

    Our most favorite stop was an area with a wolf den, and Mike quickly spotted the mother wolf along with a bear and a bald eagle nearby.

    After watching the mother wolf lay down for over 40 minutes, Mike suggested we stay patient as he thought there was a great chance the momma wolf might bring her new born pups out …

    Sure enough, after being extra patient, and with a bear and elk walking near the mother wolf, she stood up and pulled her small babies out of the den. We saw at least two babies -- possibly three.

    We were over one mile away, but again, with Mikes high powered equipment it looked as if they were inside of 50 yards from us.

    We can’t express enough just how good of a guide Mike is.

    He had sandwiches and drinks for us as well.

    He is a very safe driver and was very gentle with my wife Dana, who had been sick the past three days.

    Dana and I highly recommend Mike to all who want to explore Yellowstone and see wildlife and sights that must not be missed …

    We plan on bringing our grandchildren next time to introduce them to the wonders of Yellowstone.

    Thanks for everything, Mike!

    Sincerely,

    Jim and Dana S.
