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.

    Beautiful setting. Feel like you’re nestled in the mountains. Pool area was nicely laid out - plenty of chairs and a fire pit. We went mid-Oct and it was not crowded (about 30 other people). We took our three teenage boys and grandma - we spent about 2.5 hours there on our way to Yellowstone, but could have stayed longer!

    This is a "Well Oiled Machine" of an operation!! A bit tricky to get to, go slow on that bumpy county road to the top of the mountain, but a surprise at the top of well maintained and very nice outbuildings. Everyone was matched to just the right horse! The guides were well versed and friendly as could be. And the views were out of this world beautiful! We did the dinner ride, and the food was Fabulous!! Songs and marshmallows by the fire after dinner was a very cute ending to this event. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    My wife and I did a float trip down the yellowstone with Cody and he met all expectations and then some. Since this was my wife's first time ever fly-fishing I was wondering how he was going to juggle everything. He had her catching in no time which was a bonus for me because it gave me an opportunity to fish these fabled waters and catch my bucket list native cutthroat trout!

    Six of us (4 adults & 2 teens) did the two-hour ride on Saturday morning, 7/29. As some have said, the road up to Jardine and to the horse corral was an adventure in itself, but nothing a minivan couldn't handle! We arrived about 15 minutes before our scheduled 9:00 ride. Ralph and a couple others were there. J.R. was our guide. He went through the basics of horseback riding with us and then they paired us up with our horses, making sure everyone was comfortable with what they were doing. We headed out into some absolutely beautiful upcountry until we reached a large open meadow an hour into the ride. We then returned via the same trail, as there are no "loops" up there. J.R. was very good at setting a nice pace and keeping an eye on everyone and slowing/stopping as needed when someone's horse wasn't cooperating (be aware that Mouse likes to stop and eat grass a lot if you let him! :-)
    The two hours seemed to pass quickly as the scenery from up there was gorgeous. Everyone really enjoyed the experience.
    Highly recommend the two-hour ride with this outfit!

    Our group of 9 had a delightful, fun, and exhilarating experience. We ranged in age from 8 to 70, and all enjoyed it. Sophia and the team got us suited up, exhibiting patience and knowledge. The river was flowing well, so we were all in the splash zone. Three of us and our super guide, Sophia, got in the water at the calm spots to enhance the experience. Sophia was the only one that did a back flip off the front to enter though.

    We decided last-minute to go rafting, and it was an amazing time! Morgan, our guide, was a lot of fun and gave us a lot of details about the area. So glad we went. Would highly recommend.

    Great experience. We did the less challenging half day, and it was perfect. Over in hour on the river is the right amount of time unless you are really adventurous. It was early season so the river was high which made for an exciting ride still. Don't rush to get your gear on, as the whole process with the entire group takes about 45 minutes. All gear is provided which was really nice!

    Amazing experience. This was our second trip with Yellowstone Wild and both have been incredible- lifetime memories were made. We took this trip with Kyle and saw grizzlies, black bear, bison, elk, and pronghorn. What made it special were the unexpected moments- seeing mother golden eagle feed her babies. Seeing osprey babies and parents. And seeing the smallest bird in North America (calliope hummingbird). Kyle was great with us and our kids. We’ll be back again! I highly recommend it.

    Best guided tour in Yellowstone. MacNeil is so informative and knows the best places to see wildlife. He was so kind and knowledgeable. Our tour was planned over what we wanted to see. Had the best time, learned so much and so some amazing wildlife. Highlight of the trip!! Especially seeing all the wolves!

    Cara was an amazing guide. She has so much knowledge about the ecosystem. We saw so many animals! 2 wolf packs, a mountain lion, 2 moose, pronghorn, bison, pygmy owl, great horned owl. Epic day and so much fun. A must do and totally different way to see Yellowstone. It was a true life-moment.

    I planned aur trip for Yellowstone for my mother‘s 80th birthday. My mom, sister and I spent an amazing day with Audra/Lamar Valley Touring. She provided transportation to and from where we were staying in Gardiner, which was very convenient. We did the early morning tour which started at 5:15 AM so that we could have the best chance of seeing wildlife. We were able to see the elusive wolves, two different packs! This was so exciting! We also saw bears, bison, elk, mountain goats, a moose, and various birds including eagles and osprey. It is amazing to see how the guides in the park assist each other and help to put each other onto where the animals are. Each time we would get near animals, Audra and her assistant would set up scopes and other equipment for us to clearly view them. Audra’s enthusiasm and excitement for finding the animals was evident, even though I know she does these tours regularly. Her love for animals and nature made the experience even more special. I cannot recommend highly enough. This was our best day at Yellowstone!

    When into Yellowstone 4 times the first week of June 2024. We have used Ashea and her team 10 times ove the last seveal years and they continue to impress. We were with Ashea 2 days and Rhiana and they are both fantastic. In addition, to being great wildlife guides they are both extremely knowledgeable about the park. In addition they are both attentive and thoughtful of what it takes to be just a drive thru Yellowstone to wonderful experience. We will be traveling with them again in 2025.
