Tours from Jackson WY

Is there transportation from Jackson to Yellowstone & Grand Tetons? And is there an inexpensive tour bus through these areas? Or is it nearly impossible to see these places without renting a car? Thanks! As you can tell, we are pretty uncertain of what to expect once we arrive in Jackson.

I am aware of tours for YNP and GTNP, but none that I could call inexpensive.

>is it nearly impossible to see these places without renting a car?

Yup.

Thanks for your reply, Teton Bill. I actually did find some tours offered by Grayline (Alltrans in this area). One is guided and the other I believe is more of a hop on/hop off type tour. They pick up from Jackson at no additional charge.

I may have misunderstood what you meant by "inexpensive". I thought you were looking for a tour for about the cost of a rental car. The Yellowstone tours from Jackson start at around $150 a person (plus tips) last time I checked, which for 2 people traveling together makes a rental car a lot less expensive alternative. Either way, I hope you enjoy your visit.

In this case you have 3 options:

1. Bus Tour: 150 - 200 $ per day

2. Rental Car: 50 - 200 $ plus fuel and insurance

3. Taxi: 60 - 120$ per hour

I'm pretty sure a taxi cab service would not hold tours throughout the National Parks due to the restrictive permitting and high cost of a $5M liability policy.

Hello Im not sure when you traveling but the car rental with Hotwire for this week is @ $8 x day ... Of course you want to check if the ark is open to vehicles before going .. Good luck
