We were staying a couple of days in Cody, WY. and were going to drive the Yellowstone park ourselves when we found this brochure (Yellowstone Wildlife&Photo Tours). After reading the brochure we decided to call because we didn't think we really wanted to drive, we wanted to sight see. We called that evening and booked the tour for the next morning departing at 7:00 and getting picked up at our Hotel. This was great, not having to drive when we had already driven over 2000 miles. The van pulled up before 7:00 and we met our guide "Jackie O" and she was the greatest guide we have ever encountered. She shared her love of Yellowstone with us all. We had three couples and we clicked as a unit with a lot of laughter and fun. Jackie also provided rain jackets for those of us that weren't prepared and provided a great sack lunch. She made sure we had plenty of restroom breaks and were all comfortable as we could be, providing a step at each stop for the passengers to step down on while assisting each of us. While it was raining Jackie even took our camera's and took pictures for us. Jackie shared many stories about Yellowstone along the way. In fact, she guided us way past her usual time because she knew we wanted to see more. If you take this tour please ask for Jackie if you want the best, for she is the best!!!

This was a great tour. We were able to see all the key locations in the south loop and received great information about each. Jackie loves Yellowstone and her job and we benefited from that. We took her recommendation and returned the next day and hiked to the Fairy Falls-thanks Jackie. It was like having your best friend as your tour guide!!! Lunch was delicious!

Jackie is the absolute best!!!!...from the time she picked us up at our hotel until we returned it was a nonstop day of fun, information, unbelievable sights and scenery. Jackie loves Yellowstone and shares her love and secret places with her tourists. We would have never seen the geysers and waterfalls and unusual changes that occur every day in Yellowstone without Jackie's knowledge and awareness of the terrain. We also saw many bison...up front and personal.....and some elk and pelicans. We had many stops, including the main lodge with it's incredible architecture all done out of logs.....and watched Old Faithful. We had a lovely lunch at a picnic area...where the group got to know each other and Jackie shared her adventures with us. This was truly a trip of a lifetime that we will never forget!!!!!!!!!

We called the night before wanting a tour the following morning, no problem. Jackie picked us up at our hotel at 7 am. Best choice we made! Jackie pointed out lots of historical points and had lots of fun facts along our tour. She made sure we stopped at all the best parts of Yellowstone. We would have never known which stops to make on our own and leaving the driving to someone else so we could just enjoy the fabulous views was the best choice. We stopped at Old Faithful and shopped a bit before having our lunch waiting for us on the upper deck. We sat outside and had lunch while watching Old Faithful put on a show for us. It was perfect and lunch was simple but delicious, especially the brownies!!! We did see a few animals, would have liked to have seen more but only mother nature can control that. Would highly recommend.Thanks again Jackie!

I like taking these tours as you get to see the high points from someone who knows the area. Plus it is nice to let someone else do the driving. Jackie was great. It is a beautiful, scenic drive from Cody to Yellowstone. We were able to see the upper & lower falls, Yellowstone Grand Canyon, Old Faithful and a wealth of geysers, scenery and wildlife.
